AUGUSTA — Kennebec Valley YMCA will kick off its 13th session of Lose it with the Y on Monday, Jan. 25. All participants must attend the opening ceremony at 5 p.m. in the Harold Alfond Gymnasium. Pre-registration is encouraged, though participants can also sign up at the opening ceremony, according to a news release from the Y.

This 10-week program enables participants to set healthy lifestyle goals, work out with a personal trainer to meet those goals and measure their progress throughout the program. Participants work in teams of four. Those who do not have a team of four to sign up will be placed on a team at the opening ceremony.

Cost is $100 per member, which includes the program and a team shirt, or $250 per nonmember, which includes the program, team shirt and full membership to the KVYMCA from Jan. 25 to April 3. To reserve a space, call 622-YMCA or stop in at the Augusta or Manchester campus to register.

Over the past five years, the Lose it with the Y program has grown. With more than 2,500 pounds lost, participants are learning skills and tools to not only lose weight but to make an overall change in their lifestyle. The highly experienced coaches will take participants through aqua workouts, kettle bell, resistance bands, free weights, Spinning, TRX and more, including the new Movestrong Equipment. Participants will never experience the same workout twice in this program.

Kennebec Valley YMCA Healthy Living Director Craig Cameron, said “This session of Lose it with the Y will be our best session yet!” in the release. He adds, “Our goal is to help everyone in our community find a path to a healthy lifestyle. Lose it with the Y is a life changing experience for participants and one they will never forget. I encourage all who are interested to take the first step by signing up.”
