WINTER MONTHS NO EXCUSE TO STOP EXERCISING; JENNY CRAIG OFFERS FREE FITNESS WALKING PROGRAM TO CHASE WINTER BLUES

 DEL MAR, Calif., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- At a time of the year when many people reduce their physical activity because of inclement weather, weight management expert Jenny Craig is encouraging individuals to maintain a regimen of exercise during the winter months. Even simple forms of exercise, such as stretching and walking, can be effective in burning calories and reducing stress brought on by such holiday traditions as shopping, traveling, overeating and hectic social schedules.
 To help keep the doldrums of winter at bay and weight management under control, Jenny Craig Weight Loss Centres are offering The Jenny Craig Walking Program free to any first-time visitor through Dec. 24, 1993.
 "The winter months tend to be the most physically passive time of the year for individuals because a number of outdoor recreational activities are not possible due to poor weather conditions," said Jenny Craig, co-founder of the company. "It is very important for people to maintain a regular program of physical activity, regardless of the season. Fitness walking is an excellent aerobic activity and can be done during the cold winter months in shopping malls or even at home in front of the television. It requires continuous walking over an extended period of time at a pace fast enough to produce beneficial cardiovascular changes in the body. We invite anyone interested in fitness walking or learning about our new Personal Weight Management Program to visit any Centre for his or her complimentary Walking Program."
 The Walking Program features two 60-minute audiocassettes and an informative instruction booklet. The audiocassettes, which combine music and motivating narrative instruction, include three levels of intensity to help ensure a walking tempo that is suited to an individual's current as well as future fitness level. The booklet describes fitness walking techniques and suggests ways to safely and enjoyably walk.
 The Walking Program normally retails for $19, and is available exclusively at Jenny Craig Weight Loss Centres. After Dec. 24, the Walking Program can be purchased only by clients enrolled in the Jenny Craig Program. To contact the nearest Jenny Craig Weight Loss Centre, call toll-free 800-94-JENNY.
 Jenny Craig Inc., founded in 1983, provides consumers with a comprehensive and ongoing weight management program through a chain of more than 810 company-owned and franchised Centres in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand.
