After a very successful first go-around, IUP’s Biggest Loser competition is back for the second time this school year. The weight loss contest, hosted by the James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness in Zink Hall, has implemented some new and improved changes, including the option for personal training!
The contest is open to anyone who would like to join, and sign-up is only $15. Get ready to challenge yourself and have fun doing so!
It’s certainly not too early to get started working on that summer body, so stop by the James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness next week—Monday, February 1, until Thursday, February 4, 2010—to sign up. Those who enter the competition are encouraged, but not required, to purchase a two-month promotional James Mill Fitness Center membership for a small additional fee of $20. The competition begins February 1, 2010, and lasts for eight weeks, wrapping up on March 29, 2010. The winner will receive a free one-year fitness center membership as well as a $50 gift certificate to Donatello’s Restaurant in Indiana, Pa.
To ensure a fair competition, we have implemented the use of the Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA), which accurately measures body fat percentage. The individual with the highest percentage of body fat lost during the eight-week competition will be determined the winner! The option for nutrition advice and counseling is also available, with the help of IUP’s dietetic interns, throughout the duration of the contest.
Here’s what you need to know:
Cost of contest: $15
Promotional gym membership fee: $20 (two months) + $15 (contest fee) = $35 total
The fitness center membership will last for eight weeks during competition. The application fee will be waived; however, for those who choose to sign up for the fitness center after the contest is over, an application fee will be charged. You are not required to join the fitness center—this is only an option if you do not have anywhere to work out or are already a member at another gym.
We want you to join, so help make this event a continued success! Gather your friends and coworkers to join in on the fight against body fat and enjoy healthier living along the way.
