In the spring of 2009 after 25 years of helping people lose weight through a one on one counseling approach, I decided to try something really different! Being inspired by NBC’s “Biggest Loser” program, I brainstormed with a group of innovative people and created The Healthy Weigh’s first ever “Team Challenge.” Since that time we have been delivering, from start to finish, the most outstanding 10 week weight loss challenges available!
Here’s how it works:
Everyone who enrolls in The Team Challenge, has a weight loss partner, they make up a team. Our teams compete for the greatest % of weight loss for the 10 week period.
Every THURSDAY at Noon or 6 PM all of our teams show up for a weigh-in and an inspirational presentation. Our Thursday meetings last approximately one hour. Each week we announce and present prizes to the winning teams for the week and individual winners for challenges met. At the end of the ten weeks we have first, second and third place prizes for the top three teams. The grand prize goes to the team with the greatest % of weight loss. $1000!
Our clients can expect a 22 pound weight loss during the 10 week challenge, however we have seen greater weight loss per week at The Team Challenge, than in the history of The Healthy Weigh! The outstanding weight losses are due to our excellent nutritional plan and the accountability/support of the group. Although we celebrate the weight loss each week, we also spend time working on the issues that have kept people from losing weight and more importantly, kept them from keeping it off. The education and motivation our clients receive each week is unparalleled.
At the end of each 10 week Challenge, we conclude with a grand finale to celebrate all that has been accomplished in the last 10 weeks. We also follow up with a Stabilization class and a Maintenance group for anyone who reached goal weight during this challenge. The rest of our clients continue on and begin the next Challenge.
As we head into our next season, it just keeps getting better! More weight loss, more life change, more prizes, more fun, and more support. Be a part of something great, The Healthy Weigh’s Team Challenge!
