Winners are determined by the percent of body weight lost – NOT the number of pounds lost.
Here’s how you figure it out:
There are FOUR weigh-ins for the 2019/2020 program.
In order to compete for prize money, you must attend EACH weigh-in at one of the official weigh-in sites.
Attend the first three weigh-ins (first weigh-in in October; 90-day in January; and 180-day in April) and lose 3% of your bodyweight by the 180-day weigh-in, you will earn a free entry into the FitOne 5k walk/run in September 2020!
*Free entry is non-transferable; must register for FitOne by Sept 1, 2020.
Please wear a t-shirt and shorts/capris/sweats. Jeans/heavy clothing are discouraged. It will be marked on your weigh-in form and you will be expected to wear similar clothing at your final weigh-in.
You will still be in the Challenge, but you will be ineligible to win prize money. You will continue to receive health-tips, and you can attend any of the classes and programs.
