Weekly Meetings

Some things never change – and they never should. In-person meetings are at the core of what we do, and who we are, as an organization. TOPS was built on peer-to-peer gatherings, and we intend to keep it this way. If you’d rather join online, that’s an option, too!

All the Best Resources

A bimonthly members-only magazine, delivered right to your doorstep; a “My Day One” guide to help you get started; a digital health library; medical experts offering webinars; fitness guides, recipes and more – with TOPS, you’ll have it all.

The Chance to Take Your Life Back

We’ll teach you how to eat with the Exchange System. You’ll take in a wealth of knowledge and make lasting connections at one of our retreats. And if you work the program and see success, we’d love to honor you at our annual recognition program(s). Not to mention, you’re saving your own life.

It’s weight loss, done right.

For 75 years, TOPS Club has helped people take off, and keep off, the weight. We’re all about doing things by the books – we have strong ties to the medical community, and believe in healthy living from the inside, out. It’s a holistic approach to wellness. No fad diets. No gimmicks. No shortcuts. With us, it all comes down to accountability, unwavering support and resources.


Are you …


  • Ready for a healthier lifestyle?
  • Feeling ignored by your current program?
  • Not getting the support that you need?
  • Not getting the support that you need?
  • Open to the idea of committing to yourself?
  • Craving a stronger network of people who have the same goals as you?
  • Nutrition Plan
  • Exercise Program
  • Perfect Plan

If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, TOPS is ready for you. We were the first weight loss organization of this kind when we opened our “doors” in 1948. And we intend to stick around the longest. If you commit to us, we’ll commit to you.

Come Grow Old With Us!

Thinking about finding a meeting near your house or office? We offer thousands of meeting places across the U.S. and Canada, or, we invite you and some friends to start your own chapter. And on the off chance that you’re unable to find something that fits into your schedule, snuggle into your couch and join us online, from the comfort of your home. It’s as easy as this:

Take a Chance on YOU

As a nonprofit, we believe in keeping costs low, because we believe healthy living should be accessible to everyone. A deluxe membership is $79 in U.S. dollars, $89 in Canada, for an entire year, although we offer a variety of packages to match your budget. Your first in-person meeting is free.

Start Small

Get to know the members in your chapter, and little by little, you’ll likely want to start poking around on our website, reading your member magazine, attending events and learning how to eat right and exercise. Remember, the magic doesn’t happen overnight! Baby steps.

Live It, Breathe It, Own It

Soon enough, you’ll be sharing all the best recipes, joining your chapter’s leadership and spreading the word about TOPS. Our members who reach their goal are called KOPS, as they Keep Off Pounds Sensibly. We’d love to honor you in this role someday!

Trends come and go, but there’s just something about a classic approach.

Healthy living doesn’t go in or out of style, so why does our methodology? After all, you know the true recipe: Fewer calories, more exercise, smarter decision-making, little habit-forming routines, gathering momentum over time. That’s the stuff that sticks. That’s what TOPS was built on. And we don’t have coaches or celebrity endorsements – we have each other. At TOPS, you’re in good hands. No judgment. Just people helping people.
