Annual Member Holiday Survival Challenge
We all know that when the holidays are upon us busy schedules get in the way of our work outs, food and treats are a plenty and stress levels run high. For the past 21 years Galter has helped hundreds of participants survive the holiday season. Our annual Holiday Survival Program provides tips, incentives, motivation and accountability all which add up to keep you on track and healthy throughout the busy holiday season.
The overall goal of the program is for participants to not let the hectic pace of the season get in the way of working on our health. We strive for consistent workouts (which can be done anywhere), a sense of commitment and maintenance of current weight. As an added bonus, if you stick with the program weight loss results can happen. Over the past three years there has been an average of 160 survivors, with an average amount of weight loss of 245 pounds per year.
Join us for weeks of fun, starting November 17, 2013 and running through January 11, 2014. Registration begins November 10, with a fee of $12. Please also bring a non-perishable item for our local food pantry. Half of the monetary proceeds will be donated to the local food pantry for the benefit of our community. A special t-shirt awaits those who survive the challenge!
