WYTHEVILLE, Va. – The spring Shape Up Wythe Sheffey programs finished up with excellent results for participants.

Carolanne Shockley took part in this year’s program.

“It’s an excellent program with certified instructors and trainers,” Shockley said. “I loved the program. I’m very proud of how they have started it from the ground up. I had a great nutritionist.” 

The twelve week program provides students with three days per week of exercise and nutrition education. The program concluded in June with a revealing of assessments and a healthy dinner for participants. The spring program included two classes, Shape Up Wythe Sheffey and Shape Up Step Two.

“It’s a free program funded by the Wythe-Bland Foundation,” Wythe County Parks and Recreation Director Kevin Williams said. “Several organizations make this program happen: Jinger Covert and A Step Above Concepts, Virginia Cooperative Extension, Heartland Rehab Services and the Virginia Department of Health.”

Within the two classes, 27 people participated and lost a total of 159 inches and 111 pounds.

The program is held at the Sheffey Community Gym. Williams said a fall session is starting after Labor Day. For more information about the program please contact Williams at 276-223-4519.
