Back by popular demand, the Club 1 Fitness “Battle of the Bulge” weight loss competition is returning Feb. 20 and will run through March 31. This is a chance for community members to get fit, stay accountable and have fun with a shot at winning cash and prizes, sponsors said.
“We are introducing a new, 6-week format this year, which will hopefully make it long enough to see some real results but short enough that participants can stay committed,” said Club 1 Fitness General Manager Chris Berger. “Also new this year will be a special kickoff event featuring a group workout to get everyone motivated for success.”
Registration and weigh-in will take place from 6-7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 20, followed by the group workout from 7-8 p.m.
“This workout will be unique because you’ll get four 15-minute samples of different group fitness offerings at Club 1,” Berger said. “Competitors can see what they like, and then keep coming each week to reach their weight loss goals.”
Battle of the Bulge is open to everyone, regardless of membership status at Club 1 Fitness. Entree fee is $49 per person for gym members and $99 for non-members. Participants can assemble a team of four or sign up individually to be grouped with other competitors. Prizes will be awarded in four categories based on percent weight loss and total inches lost, giving participants several ways to win.
In addition to the group workouts and prize incentives, registration fees also include nutrition tips, a group shopping trip to learn healthy grocery shopping habits, accountability in a private Facebook group, and admission to the Gala awards presentation at the end of the competition.
