Countdown To New Get Fit Lake Chelan Contest Begins!

Posted by Tony on January 24, 2012

New Get Fit Lake Chelan Contest will bring fun, fitness, and good health to the Chelan Valley!

With January slipping by, is it getting harder to keep that New Year’s resolution of moving more and eating less? If so, the new GET FIT! LAKE CHELAN challenge may provide the boost you need.

Lake Chelan Community Hospital (LCCH) is partnering with Ben Higgins of Chelan, who started GET FIT! LAKE CHELAN last year. Other local businesses are also participating to expand the community weight loss challenge. This includes nutrition and fitness workshops, weekly raffles, blogs, cash prizes and the opportunity to collect GET FIT! points by participating in fun fitness activities.

The challenge isn’t just about losing weight, said Brad Hankins, LCCH Chief Operating Officer. It’s about being healthier and more physically active. When participants have their initial weigh in and measurements at LCCH, they will also receive a free blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol screening. They will receive another screening at the conclusion of the challenge. Those tests, combined with weight loss, body fat reduction and participation in GET FIT! activities, will determine the winners.

“But all participants will be winners,” said Hankins.  “The medical screenings will uncover important health information, and the nutrition and fitness workshops will provide tools to success.”
