Saint Mary’s Center for Health & Fitness Announces Weight‐Loss Challenge Featuring Community “Winners”
RENO, Nev. – Losing weight is the single most popular New Year’s resolution among the
American public and Saint Mary’s Center for Health & Fitness wants to help northern Nevadans
achieve their goal. Today, the Center announced a new program designed to help participants
meet their weight‐loss goals through a 10‐week community challenge — The Biggest Winner.
The program begins January 1 and applications are due December 8.
“Saint Mary’s is focused on inspiring our community to live healthy and we are excited to launch
The Biggest Winner,” said Miles Mettler, General Manager at Saint Mary’s Center for Health &
Fitness. “The program gives new meaning to a weight‐loss challenge by actively engaging
participants in their journey. The Fitness Center will provide all of the tools and support they
need to succeed and we can’t wait to share the results.”
The program is open to the public and anyone can apply to be one of six finalists. From this
point, the community will choose the three lucky applicants who will take part in a free 10‐week
challenge. The public will be able to track the contestants’ results through The Biggest Winner
website (TBWReno.com) and our Facebook page (Facebook.com/SaintMarysFitness). At the
conclusion of the program, the participant who lost the highest percentage of body mass will
win the grand prize — a free membership for the remainder of 2013.
Individuals interested in submitting an application may register online at www.TBWReno.com or
in person at Saint Mary’s Center for Health & Fitness at 645 N. Arlington Ave. in Reno. The
deadline for all applications is December 8.
