Biggest Loser Challenge Winter 2013
The Biggest Loser Challenge deadline has passed.
We regret any inconvenience and thank everyone who has applied for the program. We are looking forward to a great Challenge kickoff in the new year!
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 most weight lost, plus the winning team receives an award ceremony and a team photo mounted on O'Connell Hall of Fame.
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 weigh-ins and team training sessions.
