The Washington County Government Health and Human Services Department recently offered two wellness and fitness activities for county employees with the help of the Washington County Recreation Department, Meritus Medical Center's Tri-State Health Partners and the Fitness Center at Hagerstown Community College.

The "Healthy Weigh to a Better Me" weight management program, a 12-week class, was designed to help attendees focus on a holistic approach to weight management by facilitating behavior that supports a health mind, body, and spirit.

Among the 30 participants in the course, a total weight loss of 61 pounds was recorded.

The classes focused on varied, high-intensity, and functional movements that helped participants achieve fitness goals through safe exercises.
