That is why Lifestyle Fitness is offering three months free gym membership to any participants who have not used the gym in Bath Lane before.
Owner Brikitta Daniels said Lifestyle caters for people at all levels of fitness, and those seeking to lose weight through the 12 week challenge would be supported by the gym’s personal trainers.
“We will set up individualised training programs for everyone, to get them on track,” she said.
“We know it can be intimidating for people to come into a gym for the first time, but we will try to make it easy for them.”
Brikitta or one of her team will also be offering extra tips on becoming more active throughout the 12 weeks, both in the Bendigo Weekly and in the weekly emails to all participants.
Those who have already signed up for Bendigo’s Biggest Winner 2012 can call in to the gym and set up their free membership, or wait until the weigh-in (between August 27 and September 7) to get their instructions and starter pack, which is chock-full of vouchers and other goodies to help them along the way.
