Our Goal is to fill the gap between the desire and the action, giving members the tools to help those that want to make a change for a healthier lifestyle.”

This goal was obviously met for clients in 2011, with a total of 1,024.9 pounds officially lost by the end of the year.  The top loser was George Ulasevich, who lost 53 pounds over five months.

Club West is currently forming Weight Loss Challenges for the beginning of 2012, just in time to help residents live up to their New Year’s resolutions.

“It is important that people who join the Challenge do it for the whole 12 weeks,” said Morgan Matalucci, one of the Wellness Coaches at Club West.  “The $35 registration fee is then put in a pool and used to reward the top Losers.  We also meet with people individually, if a group setting is not for them.”

Clients can come and join a weight loss challenge, take a class, purchase supplements or simply come and hang out while having a shake or a cup of tea.  Stop by at 218B, South Avenue in Fanwood (right across from the Train Station) or call them on 908-322-2100 to book an appointment.
