Skinny Santa

This fun program is all about keeping the weight off during the holidays! It begins the Monday before Thanksgiving and ends the Monday after New Year’s! You come in that first Monday and weigh in. You give Josh, our fitness director, your weight in a little box and you will start the program with a zero! Then the next Monday you will come in and weigh in again. Josh will put on the board that you have lost, gained, or maintained the same weight. For example, if you weigh in the first week at 130lbs and then the next week you weigh in at 129lbs, Josh would write -1 on the board! No worries on the actual weight numbers, only Josh will know it, and he won’t tell or he will end up on Santa’s Naughty List! The program is a great motivator to be conscious of what you eat through the holidays! To participate your just sign up in November before the first weigh in! 

It’s $3.00 to sign up!
