According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, four out of five African American women - the leading casualties of such ills as obesity, heart disease and diabetes - are overweight. In response, 30 Days To Lose It!, inspired by the hit TV show, “The Biggest Loser,” was launched in March, 2010. Bring a buddy or 3 and join this safe, fun fitness program for women endorsed by the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports!

30 Days to Lose It! is sponsored by Beaumont Health System and St. John Providence. Before beginning any exercise program, an individual should first consult with a physician or other qualified healthcare provider.
