Healthy Lifestyle Program

Registration Steps:

The 2020 BMH Healthy Lifestyle Program classes begin January 14th. The year long program has been researched and certified by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control). 


Participants are expected to attend classes once a week for the first six months, which is considered the Core Program. During the second six months of the year, class participants will meet twice a month, which is considered the Post Core. During Post Core, the class instructor will reinforce the information taught during the first six months. 


Classes last approximately one hour and include education and resources regarding nutrition, stress reduction, healthy living and diabetes prevention. Specific topics include healthy diet (how to read food labels, calorie or carbohydrate counting, portion sizes, eating more fruits and vegetables, decreasing sugary drinks and drinking more water). In addition, participants learn about mindless and emotional eating as well as physical activity and the importance of getting adequate sleep.

Classes will be held on weekly on Tuesday and Thursday.

Time options include:

  • 9:30am

  • 11:00am

  • 2:00pm

  • 4:30pm

  • 6:00pm


Weigh-ins are held weekly, which are optional and private.


Classes are taught by hospital provider Kathy Hill, APRN, FNP-BC and take place on the third floor of the Hill Chiropractic Building (467 Main Street, Madison-off hospital campus). 

NOTE: Due to construction, classes will temporarily be held on the hospital campus in Private Dining (1st Floor). Class participants will be notified once class location has moved to the Hill Chiropractic Building on Main Street, Madison.

The BMH Fitness Center is open to all participants (extended & weekend hours are available). The Director of BMH Cardiac Rehabilitation, Matt Downey, meets with active participants of the Healthy Lifestyle Program to teach them how to properly use the exercise equipment and to provide exercise tips and strategies to use along their weight loss journey. Matt is an exercise physiologist with a masters of science degree in cardiac rehabilitation and adult fitness.
