Welcome to The Clark Sports Center's COMMIT TO BE FIT program! This program is designed to help members lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle.
COMMIT TO BE FIT has an easy to follow points system that will credit members for not just weight loss, but for activity and education toward long term healthy living. The more points you earn, the better chance you have of earning a larger membership credit at the end. The participant with the highest total points will be awarded the grand prize, a One Year Adult Membership.
This program is a commitment to yourself to live a healthy life. When you sign up you will be given a Passport to Fitness. The Passport contains program information and weekly logs to keep track of what you eat and the activities you participate in. You will also receive weekly handouts to be added such as recipes, suggested exercises and challenges to earn point bonuses.
There is a $10 registration fee. If you complete the program with a minimum of 50 points, the $10 will be credited to your membership along with any rewards for the points you have accumulated. A better way for fitness is a commitment to be fit. Challenge your limits!
Sign up for COMMIT TO BE FIT beginning Monday, January 4, 2016 at the Fitness Center Desk. Participants may register at any time throughout the program! The program will run Monday, January 11–Sunday, April 10, 2016.
