Is living a healthier lifestyle one of your New Year's resolutions? Would you like to learn how to eat better and lose weight in the process? Have you struggled with changing your diet in the past? Could you use a little support and guidance? Then join us for our 10 week Be Healthy Weight Loss Challenge!
How does the program work?
You will work on your own to lose the weight, but we’ll provide support, camaraderie and encouragement along the way. We've partnered with OSF Healthcare's Center for Healthy Lifestyles to bring you great resources throughout the program. We will not provide a specific diet or eating plan but we will teach you how to make better nutritional choices via Facebook and email newsletters with healthy recipes, nutrition seminars, weekly challenges and more. You will earn points for being accountable to the program and yourself.
- Attend a Monday Fun Run/Walk, Ladies Night or Pub Run = 5 points
- Prepare a healthy recipe = 5 points
- Attend a Thursday Nutrition Clinic = 10 points
- Dates are: February 10, March 10, April 7 at 7:15 pm
- And of course there will be opportunities for EXTRA CREDIT POINTS
Participants will weigh in at the store weekly in our private dressing rooms. We will keep a record of your weight loss and reward you for completing your weigh ins and for meeting our "Race Club" milestones:
- 5K Club (3.1 lbs in weight loss) - a good prize
- 10K Club (6.2 lbs in weight loss) - a better prize
- Half Marathon Club (13.1 lbs in weight loss) - an even better prize
- Marathon Club (26.2 lbs in weight loss) - a really super cool prize
By the end of the program, if you lose 5% of your body weight OR earn 100 points you will receive a $25 Fleet Feet Bloomington Gift Card. If you lose 5% of your body weight AND earn 100 points you will receive a $50 Fleet Feet Bloomington Gift Card. To be eligible for any end of program rewards participants must weigh in at least 8 times.
Program Cost: $60 per participant.
Are You Ready To Commit?
Our program will kick off on Monday, January 31. Once you register plan on popping into the store anytime on Saturday 1/29, Sunday 1/30 or Monday 1/31 to record your initial weigh-in. You will receive your first program newsletter on Sunday with all important program details and your first week of inspiration and motivation to keep you moving in the right direction. (**Update: the program start date has been pushed back one week and we will not be meeting as a group to kick off.)
All weigh-ins will be done privately in one of our dressing rooms and your weight will never be revealed to others. After the initial weigh-in you can come to the store anytime during regular store hours to weigh in. There is always at least one female staffer working all weekend.
