Thinking about a winter weight loss program? Not sure where to begin?
Let Clark College's Fitness Center help you with its 10-week "Biggest Loser" Challenge during winter quarter. Lose weight in a safe way. Be part of real competition. Have fun. Win big and see real results!
How the Program Works.
Each BLC participant is assigned a team, led by a certified Clark College personal trainer coach. Each team meets once a week for a one-hour session during the quarter. Weekly weigh-ins track individual progress and update the leader board.
During the challenge, you can take advantage of pre- and post-challenge fitness testing with state-of-the-art body composition technologies, health and wellness coaching and personalized fitness plans.
Team and individual prizes will be awarded at the end of the competition for the highest percentage of fat mass loss and percentage of lean mass gained. The winning team and individual will also be recognized in the Independent and Clark 24/7.
Who Can Participate?
Current and past Clark College students, faculty and staff are eligible to participate. Applicants with 15 or more pounds to lose are encouraged to apply. Participants must commit three (3) hours or more per week to exercise AND meet for weekly team training sessions.
Timeline & Place
