Join us for an exciting book talk that will inspire you to contemplate your own life's extraordinary moments.

Wednesday, Oct. 18th at 7 p.m.
Even though your first motivation for dropping those pounds might be looking better, losing weight is really a product of becoming healthier. The fact is that being overweight is commonly linked to a host of avoidable health problems like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Not to mention that the causes of obesity can often make you feel unwell. You do not need another diet book or weight loss shake. You need a plan, backed by cutting edge science on how to turn your body into a fat burning machine so you lose the weight and keep it off for good!
Part 1: Weight Loss / Nutrition Presentation from 7:00pm to 7:45pm
Part 2: Workout Session (high intensity interval training) from 7:45pm to 8:30pm
*Be sure to bring or wear workout clothes if participating in Part 2
Held in Council Chambers.
