Fitness challenge seeks applicants

GREATER SPRINGFIELD — Starting Sept. 1, Marcus Made Me Fit will be searching for 12 remarkable individuals who are interested in transforming their lives! The dozen will compete in The Challenge, a “Biggest Loser”-style contest with a grand prize that includes a local makeover, spa day and professional photo shoot. Contestants will also automatically be entered into the national Body by Vi Challenge contest with the potential to win vacations, shopping sprees and more. Over a three-month period, participants will use the Body by Vi program and weigh-in every two weeks at Anytime Fitness in Westfield. Contestants are required to select and purchase their own Body by Vi Challenge kit. The contestant with the highest percentage of weight loss at the end of the 90 days will be deemed The Challenge winner. Applications will be available for download at www.marcusmademefit.wordpress.com from Sept. 1 to Nov. 1. Selected contestants will be notified by Dec. 5. The Challenge will officially kick-off for the New Year on Jan. 2, 2012. The contest is open to participants throughout the region. The Body by Vi program is based on nutrition that helps participants burn fat and keep lean muscle, boosts your metabolism and helps control hunger. Included in the program are nutrition guides, fitness tips and plans, and downloadable tracking tools. To learn more about Body by Vi, visit marcusmademefit.bodybyvi.com or call 221-5226.
