For the fifth year in row, the Warrior of Wellness organization is hosting a six-month weight loss challenge for residents in Wisconsin’s Chippewa Valley, or anywhere else for that matter. The Slim Down Challenge, previously known as the Chippewa Valley Challenge, is being hosted through DietBet this year and commenced on Jan. 9.
Participants have until July 8 to lose 10 percent of their body weight, and through the use of the DietBet app, they can report their progress through monthly weigh-ins that can be done from anywhere. Each competitor must pay a fee to enter each round of the contest, but if they reach that month’s weight loss goal, they split the pot.
Planet Fitness® franchisee Black Duck Partners wants to keep participants motivated long after the end of the competition and has donated a one-year Black Card membership for the contestant who loses the largest percentage of his or her body weight.
“A local club manager was approached by a patron asking if we would be interested in helping out,” said Brice Scholz, marketing coordinator for Black Duck Partners. “This is the first time we have participated, but we look forward to working with Warrior of Wellness in future years.”
