Since its inception in 2009, FIT Challengers have lost more than 1,000 pounds collectively.
The challenge is every six months from January through June and then again from July through December.
Send a 300-word essay about why we should pick you for this next challenge, along with photo, to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 TONIGHT.
Within the essay, please list your home address and age. Contestants have been from Sandusky, Margaretta Township, Port Clinton, Huron, Bellevue and Norwalk in the past. Anyone can apply. However, we also need a photo. Without a photo, your application will not be considered.
Oftentimes potential contestants want to hand write their essays. We only accept email entries because those accepted to the FIT Challenge are required to use email to write a weekly blog.
Every contestant receives a free personal trainer and gym membership. In exchange, we follow your progress for six months.
FIT Challenge news is published in the Sandusky Register and Norwalk Reflector every Tuesday. You can also find us on Facebook by searching on the word “FIT” and Twitter @afityou.
Only apply for the FIT Challenge if you are willing to have the public view the ups and downs of your journey toward a new and healthier you. Most contestants find that the readers keep them accountable.
