Biggest Loser Competition Starts At Local Urbana Gym
URBANA, Ill. (WCCU) —
While Valentine's candy hit the bargain bin, a local business opened its doors for locals to hit the gym instead.
Vision Fitness in Urbana began a Biggest Loser competition on Wednesday, Feb. 15.
The local gym held weigh-ins for participants beginning a journey towards better health.
While anyone could apply for the contest by themselves, the gym's goal hopes to bring their entrants together.
"We wanted to be able to bring people together in a group setting,” Misty Richardson, personal trainer at Vision Fitness, said. “And a lot of times people are more apt to start and stick with a program if they have mentors to work with."
$250 will be awarded to the person who loses the most weight, with 6 months of free boot camp classes to the winning team.
Richardson said it's not too late to sign up for the competition.
