Biggest Loser weight-loss contest under way

There’s still time to join the Biggest Loser Contest, an eight-week weight-loss program being put on by the Bee-Fit Health and Wellness Center that includes physical training and nutrition classes.

The first weigh-in was Sept. 24, but organizer Ramona Pagel will accept first-time weigh-ins until Oct. 15. It will just be harder for late registrants win, as the last weigh-in for everyone is Nov. 19, the week before Thanksgiving.

It costs $75 for each two-person team to register. That includes the cost of the four physical training classes and four nutrition classes, which are held every Monday from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Anyone with base access is also invited to take the nutrition classes only. They’re $10 per class.

Weigh-ins are every Monday from 7 to 8:30 a.m. in the Bee-Fit. Everyone pays $1 at every weigh-in. If the weight stays the same or if a contestant misses a weigh-in, there’s an additional $1 penalty. There’s also a $1 penalty for each pound gained.

At the end of the eight weeks, the team that has lost the highest percentage of body weight will take home 50 percent of the pot. The second-place team takes home 35 percent, and the third-place team takes home 15 percent.

For more information, call Pagel at 982-2589.
