Instead of gaining weight, gain money.  Icelandic Fitness will be holding a contest to see who can maintain or lose the most during the dreaded holiday season. Beginning next week all those who would like to participate are going to throw in $25 to the pot and weigh, for those of you who are not clients you can stop by the gym and weigh too. The contest is simple you gain weight, you lose. If you are under your starting weight you split the pot. The contestant with the highest percentage weight lost will get the grand prize of either a $100 gift certificate to (Whole Foods, Sports Authority, or Lululemon).

Weigh in Period:

November 23rd-25th (Pre-Thanksgiving)

January 2nd-9th (Post New Years week)

 

Good luck to everyone, I will be posting participation numbers at the end of the week.
