For many, the battle against flab is a constant uphill struggle.

To aid in this endeavor, the Mohawk Valley Health System Wellness Center’s eight-week Biggest Loser competition begins Feb. 5. The cost is $20 with an additional dollar for each week that participants gain over their original weight. The contest ends March 30. Prizes will be awarded to the top three participants who lose the largest percentage of their original weight.

Participants will have access to wellness coaches to provide guidance on fitness, nutrition and other topics. Weigh-ins occur each week at the center, which is open weekdays between 3 and 6 p.m. It is located at the Faxton campus, 1676 Sunset Ave., Utica.

To enter the contest, call Bethany Kleist, Wellness Center coordinator, at (315) 624-5484 or send an email to wellness@mvhealthsystem.org. More information is available online, mvhealthsystem.org/wellness-center.
