Participants needed for town’s Biggest Loser

Shelburne Health & Fitness General Manager Rayne Herzog would like to challenge Shelburne businesses and organizations to get involved in its own version of the Biggest Loser. After watching the wildly popular show, Herzog felt that he could use a similar concept for a town challenge and is pursuing his options.

The concept is simple. A minimum of seven but not more than 14 businesses would sponsor two to five employees to represent the company in a weight-loss contest for six to eight weeks. Businesses that are unable to compete but would like to get involved may sponsor a company that is competing. Shelburne Health & Fitness will assign each group a personal trainer. The group will meet with the assigned trainer on a weekly basis and follow the trainer’s specially designed exercise program throughout. Participants will receive a free health club membership for the duration of the challenge. The program begins with a weigh in and additional weigh-ins will be held weekly. The team with the greatest percentage of weight loss will be declared the Biggest Loser and awarded prizes that will be given to a local charity. Everyone will be a winner in Shelburne’s Biggest Loser challenge.

Local businesses are encouraged to call Herzog at 985-4410 or email him at for more information or to sign up for the Biggest Loser.
