TOPS Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), a nonprofit weight-loss support organization, offers an individual approach to weight loss and overall wellness. Consistent group support, health education, and recognition are all key components to successful weight management.
TOPS support is provided through weekly in-person or online meetings. In-person meetings include private weigh-ins; members sharing challenges, successes or goals; a brief program covering a variety of health and wellness topics; and awards and recognition for the week. Online meetings, which are conducted via Zoom, are offered three times during the week and include the opportunity to discuss challenges, successes or goal; a prepared program and guest speakers and action steps related to the program presented.
Visitors are able to attend their first TOPS in-person meeting free of charge and are encouraged to try more than one chapter, since they’re all a little different. Membership is $37 per year, plus nominal chapter fees. Online membership is only $37 per year, no matter where the member is located.
TOPS chapters in North Central meet at First Christian Church at 6750 N. 7th Ave. and Saints Simon And Jude Cathedral School at 6351 N. 27th Ave. There are other chapters around the Valley. To learn more about membership options or to find a local chapter, visit www.tops.org or call 800-932-8677.
