2014 Dutchess Ulster BetterU Makeover Challenge
Presented by Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the U.S., taking the life of one in three women – almost one woman every minute. However, research shows that 80 percent of cardiac events in women are preventable and linked to poor choices involving diet, exercise and smoking. That’s why the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® is helping women speak up for their hearts and change this statistic by offering a free 12-week makeover, Go Red BetterU.
Powered by the science of the American Heart Association, Go Red BetterU provides guidance to help women transform their overall health through small, simple choices. Go Red BetterU gives women an opportunity to achieve a noticeably better state of well-being and heart health in just 12 weeks. Choose to be a BetterU at GoRedForWomen.org.
Locally, Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation has agreed to sponsor the BetterU Challenge, a 12-week immersion into the AHA’s BetterU program. Twelve lucky participants will be selected to go through the 12-week challenge. Each participant will receive:
• Baseline & 12-week medical readings by Health Quest Medical Practice
• 3-month membership to Gold’s Gym – LaGrange
• Personal training with Gold’s Gym
• Nutrition advice from Medical Professional
• Supermarket shopping outing
• Group support from other BetterU participants
• The power, resources and tools of GoRedForWomen.org.
Participants will be photographed before and after the 12-weeks, interviewed by media, asked to write about their experiences on the Poughkeepsie Journal’s BetterU Blog and help us celebrate the program by attending as our guests at the Go Red for Women Luncheon on February 28, 2014.
With Go Red BetterU, you’ll learn smart strategies and gain new information on improving and maintaining your health, along with the encouragement and advice of local and online coaches. Each week will focus on a different area to follow for a complete heart makeover. Live longer and stronger by taking 12 weeks to invest in your health.
