Everyone makes New Year's resolutions but they don't always follow through with them. Now, the Fieldhouse in Zanesville is helping people reach their weight loss goals.
The Fieldhouse will be hosting the annual Southeastern Ohio Best Loser Contest. While people will strive to win the title, the individual, couple or family that loses the highest percentage of body weight will also walk away with more than 5-thousand dollars in incentives. Fieldhouse Fitness Trainer, Alaina Durfee, says the Best Loser Contest is more than just a weight loss challenge.
"What you do in the long-run, you have to live a lifestyle that you can continue for the next 5..10 years and not just something that you can lose 10 pounds in 3 months," said Durfee.
Durfee says trainers and nutritionists will be available throughout the competition. She says as of January 4th, there are already 40 participants and expects this to be the biggest year yet.
"The economy is bad and people are taking their stress out on their bodies and what better way to change your body than to take it out for the right ways and to get in here and workout as a family and burn off that extra stress," said Durfee.
Contestants can register now through January 31st. After registering, the contestant will be weighed and will have 90 days to complete the challenge. For more information and rules, visit the Fieldhouse or call (740) 454-2224.
