“We’re excited to report a total of 313 pounds were lost by all participants throughout the six-week program,” Mindi Matthews, director of Employer Services at Riverview Health, stated in a press release. “Although the program is designed to challenge people to lose weight, the ultimate goal is to establish healthy habits within our community.”

Riverview Health Rehab & Fitness provided a variety of weekly exercises classes to support the efforts of the participants.

With the highest average weight loss of 4.45 percent, the traveling trophy went to the City of Noblesville. Caryn Harvey and Laura Hinshaw of Noblesville Schools, the two-person team with the highest combined weight loss percentage of nearly 8 percent, won a Garmin Vivosmart activity tracker.

Riverview Health will host an open house to educate the public about a new weight-loss program called Body Knowledge. The open house will be at its Rehab & Fitness facility at 601 Westfield Rd., Noblesville from 4 to 6:30 p.m. April 11. The Body Knowledge Open House is free and open to the public.
