The North Florida Community College Fitness Center invites the public to participate in its 2014 Sentinel Slim Down challenge. The Sentinel Slim Down is a 10-week weight loss contest open to anyone – NFCC students, NFCC employees and community members. The contest begins with weigh-ins on Jan. 22 and Jan. 23 and ends April 3.
To enter, contestants pay an entry fee due at the first weigh in: $10 Fitness Center Members; $20 Non-Members; $5 NFCC Students. The overall winner, the participant who loses the most weight during the 10-week span, will receive 25% of the entry fees collected. A portion of the money raised will be donated to Relay for Life.
Initial weigh-ins will be held Wednesday, Jan. 22 and Thursday, Jan. 23 at the Colin P. Kelly Fitness Center (NFCC campus, Bldg. 12). Those wishing to join the contest can stop by anytime between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. and should check in at the Fitness Center front desk to enroll and get started. Contestants will then weigh-in every week on either Wednesday or Thursday at the Fitness Center. A $1 penalty will be assessed for each pound gained from week to week. Weekly prizes will be given to the contestant with the highest percentage of weight lost with the overall winner taking 25% of the total entry fees collected.
Each contestant will receive a rulebook with tracking logs and program rules.
