Next week begins weigh-in for Health Dept new fitness challenge


Don't forget weigh-in for participants interested in joining the popular fitness challenge sponsored by the Florida Department of Health in Franklin County and their Community Health Improvement Partners begins on Monday, June 1 thru Friday, June 5, 2015.

This 12-week weight loss and fitness program is back by popular demand and scheduled to run from June 1 thru August 28, 2015. The cost to participant is minimal, only $15 per person.

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.

Those wishing to join the program can do so by first registering, registration and weigh-ins will be held at both the Florida Department of Health in Franklin County locations:
