Since the Franklin County Community Health Improvement Partners (CHIP) rolled out their 'Fitness Challenge' for cash last week 40 participants have join the challenge and there's plenty room for more.
The Florida Department of Health’s vision is to be the Healthiest State in the Nation. The Department of Health in Franklin County and the CHIP are committed to implementing healthy strategies to achieve that goal, one of which is the Fitness Challenge.
"We would like to thank the 40 Fitness Challenge participants who have joined the 12 week program so far. During your weight loss journey, our goal is to help you implement healthy lifestyle changes for good", said Talitha L. Robinson, Health Educator Consultant Closing the Gap Program for Florida Department of Health in Franklin/Gulf County.
The Weight Loss/Fitness Challenge for cash doesn't end until April 7, 2015; the cost is $15 and the winner gets the entire pot; results are based on the percentage of weight lost so that it is fair for all; there will be a weigh-in every 3 weeks to keep everyone motivated and you can workout on your own or coordinate with a group.
