Dec. 26, 2012 - PRLog -- SIMI VALLEY, CALIF. -- Online registration is currently underway for the free Simi Valley Family YMCA's "Activate Simi Valley" healthy living program. An Activate Simi Valley kick-off, health fair and first weigh-in will take place at the Simi Valley Family YMCA (3200 Cochran St., Simi Valley) on January 10 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The first 250 attendees will receive a free YMCA t-shirt.

         The eight-week program encourages participants to make healthy life changes, in part, through weekly confidential weigh-ins taking place every Friday. Participants will also receive nutrition and exercise materials and can attend talks from prominent health professionals.

         Last year, Dorothy Ae lost the most weight of all of the more than 800 participants--dropping 30 pounds in eight weeks. "Since there was no charge, I figured I had nothing to lose," says Ae, owner of Tamali'is Dance Polynesia, a dance studio in Simi Valley. "I went to the health fair and received all kinds of health-related information. I became determined. The Friday weigh-ins gave me the incentive I needed."

         Ae started walking a few blocks a day, eventually building up her distance to about four miles daily. Since then, Ae has joined the Y and hits the gym to stay in shape. "There really isn't any excuse. The challenge to the entire community really motivated me to be a part of it,”

         Groups and businesses are encouraged to participate. Confidential individual results will be automatically calculated as part of the total group's weight loss. Last year, participating members of the Simi Valley Unified School District lost over 140 pounds and City of Simi Valley staff averaged 3.2 pounds of weight loss per participant.  

         Activate Simi Valley runs from January 10 through March 1. To register prior to the January 10 kick-off, go to www.activatesimivalley.org. For more information, call the Y at 805-583-5338.
