What's News in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin

Registration is now underway for Workout-to-Lose, an 8-week team weight loss challenge, at LakeView RecPlex in Pleasant Prairie. In Workout-to-Lose, teams of four compete in a variety of fitness challenges to help build a healthier lifestyle and lose weight. Since the program’s introduction at RecPlex in 2005, teams have lost an average of 8 to 12% of their total body weight. The 20 teams that participated in the most recent challenge lost a combined total of more than 740 pounds.

To start the challenge, teams of four receive a fitness assessment. They then work towards their goal of losing weight. Along the way, guided by nationally certified personal trainers and the RecPlex dietician, team members are given the tools to embrace a healthier lifestyle. Teams participate in weekly: exercise programs, weight loss tracking, private weigh-ins, and health and wellness seminars. At the end of the challenge, teams receive another fitness assessment to measure their success. The total weight loss is celebrated at a closing ceremony, where winning teams and individuals receive awards for their progress.

“Workout-to-Lose has been extremely successful for those who have participated, ” commented Lyn Boehm, Programs Director at RecPlex. “Not only have participants lost weight, but they’ve also embraced a healthy approach to life! When the challenge is complete, they feel a great sense of accomplishment and they seem to appreciate that a healthy lifestyle can be fun.” Workout-to-Lose begins with a kickoff meeting on January 18 at 7:30 pm. The competition officially begins on January 25. Those interested can register individually or as a team of four.

The fee for the program is $50 per participant. RecPlex members receive a $10 discount. The fee includes: the pre- and post-challenge fitness assessments (valued at $50 each); weekly fitness challenges and seminars; private weekly weigh-ins; a program t-shirt upon completion of the challenge; and a celebratory awards ceremony at the conclusion of the eight weeks.
