HSHS St. Francis Hospital, Fit-to-GO Offer Free Fitness Classes with GO! 217 Program


GO! 217 is geared toward the cities where Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) central Illinois hospitals are located—Springfield/HSHS St. John’s Hospital, Decatur/HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital and Litchfield/HSHS St. Francis Hospital. The hospitals are partnering with the Springfield Park District, FitClub, SCHEELS, YMCA in Decatur and FIT-to-GO in Litchfield to provide community workouts each month in the participating cities.

Obesity is an identified health need in many areas of central Illinois that can result in chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer. January is Healthy Weight Awareness Month, and we encourage everyone to check the scale to see if they may need to improve. The GO! 217 program will help educate people about the preventive steps they can take to improve their overall health.

See more about upcoming community workouts, receive fitness and diet tips at the GO! 217 Facebook page or at www.go217.org. If you have questions, please email go217@hshs.org or call 217-814-4308. For more information about Healthy Weight Awareness Month, visit www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/.
