If you have always wanted to shed some unwanted pounds but need motivation, a meal plan, weekly weigh ins and a trainer, then this is for you.
The Cardinal Chiro Clinic with the help of Quest Strength Training Gym, is starting its own "Cornwall's Biggest Weight Loser". The event will start Sept. 4 and the final weigh-in will be Dec. 14.
There will be 10 teams of two, for a total of 20 participants and every team will be sponsored by a local business that has already committed to the community event.
The 20 participants will be working out four times a week with Tom Irvine, the owner of Quest gym. The participants will also have weekly one-on-one consults with Dr. Marie-Josée Cardinal, a local chiropractor. Cardinal will be the health coach, educating the participants on how healthy eating, and a healthy mind is the key to a balanced life. All teams will have weekly personalized meal plans.
The team that loses the most body fat percentage at the end of the three and a half months wins an all-inclusive trip to a sun destination or $1,000 each.
Every week during the 14 weeks, Cardinal will be holding a weigh-in at her office. The team that loses the most body fat percentage that week, will win a gift from more of our local sponsors.
The only requirement to apply is that the participant has to have at least 40 pounds to lose. How do you become a participant of the first ''Cornwall's Biggest Weight Loser''?
