Back by Popular Demand: New Fitness Challenge to begin in June


Back by popular demand the Florida Department of Health in Franklin County and their Community Health Improvement Partners have announced plans for a new fitness challenge beginning in June.

Those wanting to join in the fun of this exciting new community fitness program can do so by first registering during the first week of June in order to participate. This 12 week community weight loss program is slated to run from June 1 thru August 28, 2015, and the cost to participant is a meager $15 per participant.

The first place winner will take home 50% of participant pot, second place 30% and third place 20%. Results will be based upon the percentage of weight loss so that it’s fair for all.

Weigh-ins will occur every 3 weeks to keep everyone motivated, but you can work out on your own or coordinate with a group, and as an extra incentive the Forgotten Coast Fitness & Wellness Center will offer a special discount rate for those participating in the challenge.
