Cloquet, MN (Grassroots Newswire) September 9, 2009 - More than half of
adult U.S. women are overweight and more than one-third of adult U.S.
women are obese, according to the American Obesity Association. In fact,
obesity plays a major role in the poor health of women, including diabetes
and high blood pressure. Such statistics can be alarming, and the increase
in obesity is why places, like the local Curves center, have educational
programs to address weight loss through focused curricula and classes.
"Wouldn't it be great to have a program that helps you reach your weight
goal and stay there? In order to reach your weight goal, however, you have
to retrain and sustain your metabolism," says Jon Kalkbrenner of the
Cloquet Curves. In recognition of National Women's Health and Fitness Day
on September 30th, the Curves location in Cloquet is announcing its no
cost, 30-Day Diet Plan program for all Cloquet-area women interested in
weight-loss results and health improvement.
According to Kalkbrenner, the 30-Day Diet Plan program is a series of free
weight management classes. These classes are based on recent research

women in our own community how easy it is to gain control of their
weight," Kalkbrenner said. "We realize women in Cloquet are thinking about
going to other programs like Weight Watchers. That is why we invite them
to take a look at our program which is free to join and backed by a
Classes for the 30-Day Diet Plan program include:
1. Start-Up Class (90 minutes) and progression to Phase 2 for first-time
2. Phase 3 Class (30 minutes) to teach the most important stage of the
Curves Weight Management Plan and special techniques for ongoing weight
3. Special Topics Classes (30 minutes) to cover a different health-related
topic each month, including Smart Grocery Shopping, Choosing the Right
Carbohydrates, Eating Out, Emotional Eating and more.
All classes are available at no fee and no membership is required. The
classes are administered by hands-on activities facilitated by weight
management coaches from Curves of Cloquet, and DVDs that provide lessons
by Curves' Registered Dietitian Nadia Rodman. Participants are encouraged
to make a weekly appointment to weigh in with their weight management
coaches, who provide ongoing support and accountability.
"We hope to show local women how they can benefit from these specialized
classes," Kalkbrenner said, "and invite them to learn a brand new way to
lose weight and keep it off - without counting points, calories or
