ADVANCE helps prioritize your health and focuses on holistic self-improvement and goal setting along with healthy eating and increased physical activity to reach optimal health.

In this program, you will meet weekly then biweekly over the course of 22 weeks.  Each week your group will meet with a trainer for physical activity and a wellness coach for accountability and support while working towards your goals. Program topics include meal planning, motivation and positive self-talk, sleep, stress and relaxation, and MORE. During the program, you will receive weekly accountability from your trainer and coach as well as those in your group. Additionally, there will be Kettering Health Physicians who will provide expertise to each of the groups during the group consults. Kettering Health Physicians will attend three sessions during the program and provide presentations in health-related areas to support, encourage and motivate you on your wellness journey.

A program participant said, "The group comradery and support are great! I built an exercise family, and I feel stronger physically."
