Get healthy and fit
Looking to lose some weight and maybe gain cash in the process? Take part in the Perfect Balance Weight Loss Contest running from February 18 through April 1. Perfect Balance is an independent weight loss studio located in Fremont dedicated to helping people get fit and healthy.
"I want the community to really get together and fight obesity. We are more than happy to give them any type of motivation and provide our professional knowledge to them," says Perfect Balance Founder and Creator Michael Huang. "And giving back to local schools' athletic program or health program is another way we like to fight childhood obesity."
Functioning as a non-profit event, any funds received above contest prize amounts will be donated to the Irvington High School Athletic Department. "And in the future we would like to donate to many different organizations!" says Huang.
The entry fee is $15 per person, with 1st Place awarded $2,500, 2nd Place $500, and 3rd Place $100 for the highest percent of total weight lost (women receive a 1.5 percent lead over men).
The last contest was held October 18, 2012 and ended on November 10, 2012 and had over 650 participants from around the Bay Area and beyond. Anthony Lopez of Fremont was the 1st Place winner, losing over 25 pounds. The 2nd Place winner was Rosemary Badiali of Hayward, who lost over 20 pounds and went from using five different medications down to just one. Lopez and Badiali plan to participate in the next contest as well.
Over 15,000 pounds have been lost over the course of the contests, and organizers are eager to bring more people on board, including City staff such as police officers, and see even more weight loss.
"We really would like the community to focus on their own health, which is the most important thing in their life!" says Huang. "And we are offering to every single one of them in the contest an hour of our time to teach them for free, sharing our knowledge on eating and how to workout properly."
