April Wiebe, one of the early participants in the Healthy Weights Initiative (HWI), works out at the YMCA gym on 1st Avenue Northwest while her trainer from Alliance Wellness and Rehabilitation watches on. Wiebe said she enrolled in the program so she can play sports with her kids, rather than just watch them play.
All signs at present are pointing toward success, following a report highlighting several outcomes from the HWI's first group of 86 clients.
