Spring Crazy 8's Challenge 2017

Slimdown Crazy 8’s Challenge | Spring 2017

It’s time for our Spring Crazy 8’s Challenge! 

What is Crazy 8’s?

Crazy 8’s is a fun 8-week challenge used to motivate our members who have weight loss goals.   

When Does Spring Crazy 8’s start?

The challenge begins Monday, March 27, 2017 and runs through Saturday, May 27, 2017.

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. 

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?   Yes! 

  1. Monthly newsletter providing nutrition and fitness tips.
  2. Option to attend Slimdown weekly meetings. See our monthly calendars 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. Lazyman Challenge – keep on track by completing an Ironman triathlon in 30 days! $25 to register at the front desk.
  5. Group Ex class highlights –discover classes which provide a high calorie burn and have fun doing it.

How and when do I register?

Registration begins Monday, March 13, 2017, and closes Wednesday, March 29.  Please register at the front desk.

If you participated in the Winter Crazy 8’s and want to also sign up for this challenge, your starting weight for this will be the ending weight from the winter challenge. You would not need to weigh-in until the week of April 2.

If you did not participate in the Winter Crazy 8’s, you have the week of March 27-April 1 to attend a scheduled weigh-in to get your starting weight.

Please register before getting your starting weight!
