2018 Crazy 8's Challenge

Slimdown Crazy 8’s Challenge 2018

What is Crazy 8’s?
Crazy 8’s is a fun 8-week challenge used to motivate our members who have weight loss goals. Participants have the opportunity to lose 8 or more pounds between January and March.

When does Winter Crazy 8’s start?
The challenge begins Monday, January 15, 2018 and runs through Saturday, March 17, 2018.

How does it work?
To enter you pay $25. If you lose a total of 8 pounds in 8 weeks you will get your $25 back. If not, your money remains in the pot. Those who are successful will divvy up the pot. (In our last Crazy 8’s, winners doubled their money!)

What are the program guidelines?
You must weigh-in once per calendar week – Sunday through Saturday. There is a $5 charge any week you do not weigh-in. The weeks you are unable to make a scheduled weigh-in you will have the option to do a ‘flexible weigh-in’ – locate a Fitness Specialist in a green shirt and they can record your weekly weight. (Exception: starting and ending weight must be recorded at a scheduled weigh-in.)

Other than weighing in once a week, will I receive other support?
1.) Weekly newsletter providing nutrition and fitness tips.
2.) Option to attend Slimdown weekly meetings. See January calendar for meeting times.
3.) An option for a 30-minute coaching session with one of our Slimdown Coaches. For an additional $20 meet with a coach and receive a personalized goal setting session to set you up for success.
4.) Group Ex Class Highlights – discover classes which provide a high calorie burn and have fun doing it!

How do I register?
Registration begins Monday, January 1, 2018. Register at the front desk.

Crazy 8’s Weigh-In Week:
