The Healthy Changes Lifestyle Program is an innovative, collaborative approach to developing healthy lifestyles that incorporates the expertise of faculty and students in the School of Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism (HRT). This comprehensive, 8 week program combines nutrition, culinary and exercise skills to help people establish and sustain healthy lifestyles. It includes weekly workshops that focus on behavior change, nutrition, and cooking, as well as a group fitness class that follows each workshop. Each workshop has been designed to build on each other so that you are learning the skills needed to set goals around your health and work towards achieving them. Whether you are interested in learning how foods can affect your blood sugars and/or cholesterol or how physical activity can be incorporated into your daily life the HRT faculty experts can assist you in meeting these goals. Workshops and fitness classes are conducted by faculty which include a Chef, a Registered Dietitian, a Kinesiologist and a Sport Psychologist with the assistance of student volunteers.
