An 8-week weight-loss/wellness competition organized by The N.E.W. Program and the exercise trainers.
The challenge will begin with a weigh-in and weigh-ins will be repeated every 2 weeks.
Teams of four or more people compete to lose the highest percentage of weight - not necessarily the amount of weight - during the competition (starting weight of 220 pounds with finishing weight of 200 pounds would be 9% weight loss).
Prizes will be disbursed to the overall individual "smallest winner" and other participants.
How does it work?
Each competitor/team has initial weigh-in at first education class with the exercise trainers moderating the weigh-ins.
Weights will be compiled and tracked on a spreadsheet and awards given accordingly.
After weigh-in, competitors will participate in an exercise education class (boot camp - stations) lead by the exercise trainers.
Who can join the competition?
Any N.E.W. Program member may join a 4 (or more) person team.
Team should be evenly balanced between LAGB, GBP, VSG, and non-surgical patients.
