This spring, Campus Recreation will host the Healthiest Winner program, a fitness and lifestyle plan designed to help with weight management and overall physical health.
Similar to the hit TV show “The Biggest Loser,” the Healthiest Winner program allows participants to reach personal goals through a structured workout agenda with an informative approach to personal health.
“In 12 weeks, participants can expect to set and achieve both short and long-term goals through structured classes, personal training and nutritional and lifestyle workshops,” Allison Becker, fitness graduate assistant at Campus Recreation, said.
“Participants of the Healthiest Winner can expect a program that gives you the tools you need to become a leaner and healthier person,” Becker added.
However, unlike its celebrity counterpart, the Healthiest Winner encourages participation from various lifestyles and body types.
“The program is for anyone and our fitness staff will individualize the program for you, whether your goals are to lose weight and inches, decrease body fat or increase your knowledge on how to live a healthy lifestyle,” Becker said.
According to Becker, some of the individual goals of the program include weight loss, increased knowledge of nutrition and how to plan healthy meals. The program includes team goals that give social support and help to succeed in other fitness competitions.
Although the program is goal-oriented, the Healthiest Winner also encourages friendly competition and peer motivation from participants with different lifestyles and body types.
“Team camaraderie and friendly competition sets this program apart from any other fitness routine,” Becker said.
Participants of the program will receive a Healthiest Winner t-shirt, three fitness assessments, three goal assessments, three specialized fitness classes, a personal training session and six lifestyle workshops.
Anyone interested in participating in Healthiest Winner program can register at the front desk of the Student Fitness Center.
Registration for the program costs $75 and will remain open until January 29 at 8 p.m. Participants must also have a valid SFC membership in order to register.
