Fitness Challenge

What is the Fitness Challenge?  Our 16 Week Fitness Challenge Program involves teams of 3 who sign up every year to lose weight, have fun and compete for prizes.  There is no charge to join.  Teams must choose a name and weigh in weekly.  Each team’s percentage of weight loss will be charted weekly to determine the final winners.  All personal weights are confidential.  Cash prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place teams and for the person who loses the greatest number of pounds.  Handouts about nutrition and health are provided each week.

This years Fitness Challenge runs from January 9, 2019 to April 24, 2019 with weigh-ins on Wednesday's each week from 7:30 am until 5:30 pm at the RHF office located at 215 W. Grant Street. There is a board in the reception area with all the teams listed and percentage of weight loss each week so that you can see how your team is doing. 

Please remember that if we have inclement weather, our office will be closed if the Dexter Schools are closed and the weigh in for that Wednesday will be cancelled.   
For challenge details, watch for announcement in the Dexter Statesman newspaper, go online to Show Me Times or visit Regional Healthcare Foundation website.
