The Spartan Slimdown program is a nine-week weight loss and lifestyle change program offered for up to 12 UT students. Guided by a nationally certified and experienced personal trainers, participants engage in three, one-hour group workouts per week. Participants will also receive both pre- and post-body composition fitness assessments. In addition, participants will use My Fitness Pal to keep track of eating habits and have the opportunity to meet regularly with an AASDN certified nutrition specialist. Every other Friday, the group will gather for their progress assessment and a group challenge. The goal of the program is not only to lose weight, but to encourage healthy lifelong exercise, eating and stress reduction habits while creating a support group of friends.
The Spartan Slimdown program will begin the third week of classes (Sept. 11, 2017) during the Fall 2017 semester. An application will be required for participation in the program. The application will be posted on this webpage on Aug. 21, 2017, and will remain open until Friday, Sept. 1, 2017.
