Welcome to Weigh of Life, a unique non-profit
organization dedicated to helping West Contra Costa County
families get healthy! We offer aerobic dance and exercise
classes, nutrition education and a supportive environment
that makes fitness fun.
Since 2006, when eight women joined our first aerobics class
at a church gym, hundreds of local residents have made Weigh
of Life their way to fitness. Our members have spread
the word and today
we offer classes at four sites,
serving an average of 400 clients each month.
Weigh of Life aims especially to help residents with limited
resources and access to health and fitness programs. We offer
classes on a sliding fee schedule with scholarships available,
thanks to the generosity of our donors
If you’re looking for a fun way to better health and fitness,
come join us at a class! We
would also welcome your support as a
donor or volunteer.
Together, we can make life healthier and happier for everyone
in our community!
Luz Gomez, President of the Board of Directors
Executive Director and founder
