Weight Loss Challenge – Week 6

Posted by on July 2, 2014 at 1:00 pm

Our annual 6 week Spring Makeover Challenge allows our clients to participate in a fun, friendly team competition to help them shed that extra winter layer that most of us put in during the cold, dark rainy days.  Each of our trainers recruit team members and we all compete against each other to see who can ramp it up the most and achieve the best results.  There’s nothing like a little peer pressure to get you to do what you need to do to reach your goals.
