Arsenal kicks off Biggest Loser program

Pine Bluff Arsenal Recreation Services will begin a “Biggest Loser” weight loss program Jan. 6. The program will last 12 weeks and will include both areas of fitness and nutrition. There are no group meetings and no group weigh-ins. The program is designed to work with a participant’s everyday life.

Participants need to be registered in the program by Jan. 6; however late registrations will be accepted. Each individual will be issued a participation card upon registration. Weigh-ins will be required once a week, and are strictly confidential, between participants and the instructor. Body fat percentages will also be measured.

Participants are required to work out at least four times a week for 30 minutes or three times a week for 45 minutes. The participation card must be signed by a recreation attendant. At the end of the program, the amount of weight lost in pounds, body fat percent lost and total inches will be added up for a final score. There will be one overall winner, and other prizes will be given periodically throughout the program.

The program cost is $75 and is open to the public. For information about the program, call 540-3621 or 540-3778.
