I can play with my kids! I can keep up with my husband outdoors! My clothes are too big. I feel good."

What is PRO-Fit?
PRO-Fit is a multi-week program - 16 one-hour classes - that teaches you how to eat healthy and be more active. The program helps you set realistic goals to encourage fitness and nutrition for a lifetime. Most participants lose weight and report feeling in better health after completing the program.
You will be given a food log and pedometer at the first class to help you understand your habits and then to track changes. You’ll work with a caring and supportive group of professionals whose goal is to help you make changes that make you feel better, and lose weight by adopting healthy lifestyles.
PRO-Fit is based on the Diabetes Prevention Program that showed that 58% of diabetes could be prevented with lifestyle changes.
100% of PRO-Fit program participants felt that the program was worthwhile
Who Can Participate?
People who are at risk of diabetes, people who have prediabetes, and people who have already been diagnosed with diabetes can all participate in PRO-Fit classes.
