Team Fitness & Wellness Challenge set to begin in Jan.

TIFTON — The first annual Team Fitness & Wellness Challenge will begin Monday, Jan. 13. This team weight loss competition will benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Tift County.

 The 12-week competition begins with participants dropping by Tifton Fitness & Wellness Center at 1488 Old Ocilla Road on Jan. 13 from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. to register and weigh in.

 To reduce wait time on weigh in day, participants can pre-register by going to www.rehaboftifton.com.

 Teams of 4-6 people will compete for the cash prize. Winners are determined based on the most points earned. The majority of points will be awarded for losing weight. Points can also be earned throughout the competition by keeping food and exercise logs,  participating in fitness tests on Jan. 18 and Apr. 5, taking part in the annual Sweetheart Run, and winning weekly contests.

 “This competition is designed to be a 12-week kickoff to a healthier lifestyle,” said event coordinator Sommer Dunston of Rehabilitation Services of Tifton. “We are not just focusing on the scales. We are promoting activities which will lead to long-term success.”

 The cost to compete is $40 per person.  All competitors will receive an event T-shirt.

 The competition is sponsored by Tifton Fitness & Wellness Center and Rehabilitation Services of Tifton.
