‘Largest loser’ program can help residents trim down

Now in its 11th season, the Jewish Community Center of Greater New Haven’s Largest Loser program encourages participants to lose weight and modify behavior to live a healthier lifestyle.

The 10-week program includes group training, nutrition workshops and behavior modification workshops. Teams of participants compete in a healthy challenge, with the average participant losing 30 pounds.

“We’ve designed the Largest Loser program to address and support leading an active, healthier lifestyle — not only encouraging exercise, but also offering nutritional and behavior modification workshops so participants get the support they truly need,” said Susan Donovan, fitness director at JCC.
