Pinnacle Fitness Bootcamp and CertaPro Painters have partnered to sponsor the Decatur Biggest Loser Weight-loss Challenge.
The challenge, now in its second consecutive year, lasts six-weeks and is a fitness contest designed to improve awareness of healthy habits and challenge the Decatur community to live a healthier lifestyle.
The grand prize winners in the men’s and women’s categories will each win $250 in cash, one month of Pinnacle Fitness Bootcamp sessions and $400 in CertaPro Painters gift certificates for painting services. Prize packages also will be awarded for second and third place men’s and women’s winners.
“We had such an amazing response to our Biggest Loser Challenge last year, we just had to do it again,” David Nash of Pinnacle Fitness Bootcamp said in a statement.
“Weigh-in day was a lot of fun, with participants all fired up to make a change for themselves and support the DEF. We are so proud of our prize winners, but in the end, everyone who participated came out a winner with better health and fitness habits.”
The contest will start with a weigh-in at Leapin’ Lizards, 185 Sams St. in Decatur, on Saturday, Feb. 1, from 7 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. (All body weights will be kept private and progress will be tracked via percentage. If you can't participate in the Feb. 1 weigh-in, there will be an alternative day on Wednesday, Jan. 29, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.)
The final weigh-in event is Saturday, March 15, from 7 a.m. to 10:15
a.m. Winners will be announced at 10:30 a.m., and also notified by e-mail.
Cost of entry is a $20 registration fee, $5 of which will go to the Decatur Education Foundation.
