Snap Fitness introduces $10K Lose Weight Challenge [Business News]

Local fitness club offers motivation, support and prizes for 8-week competition

Now that New Year’s has come and gone, the motivation to stick with those resolutions may be fading.

This year, the local Snap Fitness is helping members stay on track and lose those unwanted holiday pounds with an 8-week $10,000 Lose Weight, Feel Great Challenge.

To help members get started on their path to better results, the club is also offering this limited time joining offer: new members who join and participate in the challenge, will receive the month of April free.

"This can be the most frustrating time of year to reaching your fitness goals," said Elaine Vakalopoulos, Snap Fitness owner in Sandwich. "The initial excitement from New Year’s has worn off, and now the key is finding the motivation to stick with it."

"We make it easier by offering a nearby club that’s open 24/7 so members can work out on their schedule, and our month-to-month memberships remove a lot of hesitation.  Further, our $10,000 Lose Weight Challenge is free for all Snap Fitness members to participate.  Last year, the average member lost seven pounds and found the experience to be fun and rewarding."

The competition kicks-off March 1 and runs through April 30. It includes regular, private weigh-ins, tips and live online chats with Chad the Trainer to answer questions, free online meal planning, and local and national prizes for the biggest losers. Plus, no matter how much you lose, you could win $250 just for participating!
