Fannin partnering with Healthy Choices Kentucky

ASHLAND — Healthy Choices Kentucky has partnered with Jim Fannin, “The Coach of Champions,” to provide three free weight-loss teleseminars to area residents.

The events are scheduled for 8 p.m. Feb. 12 and 26. The start time of each seminar is 8 p.m.

The seminars will stream on coachingashland.com. “Change Your Thoughts and the Pounds Melt Away” is the topic of the Feb. 12 seminar, which will demonstrate how attitudes and behaviors lead to weight gain and how to positively change one’s mindset to lose weight. The Feb. 26 seminar is titled “90-Seconds to Weight Loss Wellness,” which will break down Fannin’s 90-Second Rule™ blueprint to get fit and stay fit.

Fannin, an Ashland native, is an author and speaker, a former professional tennis player, a life strategist and sports and business consultant with more than 35 years of professional coaching, consulting and public speaking experience. He has been a mental performance coach to some of the world's top athletes and successful company CEOs.

“We’re very fortunate to have Jim Fannin as a native of Ashland, because he’s excited to be able to do these seminars for his hometown,” said Healthy Choices Kentucky spokesman Chuck Charles.

“Jim normally has a charge for his successful seminars, but through his partnership with Healthy Choices Kentucky, we’re able to bring these three weight-loss seminars to area residents at no charge.

Healthy Choices Kentucky is a consortium formed as a response to eastern Kentucky’s high obesity rates. The 26-member Healthy Choices Kentucky has set as its overall goal a three-year project aimed at obesity. The group intends to halt the rise of the Body Mass Index average of Boyd and Greenup counties.
