“Big Loser” Underway At CWC


NEW HAMPTON- Seven women are gearing up to become New Hampton’s Biggest Loser.  Women in their late twenties through their mid-sixties are taking part in the 6th annual Big Loser program which is  part of the Chickasaw Wellness Complex’s weight loss program says Director Emily Kleiss.

Kleiss says the seven participants will meet weekly through March and then once a month in April and May.  In June, participants will participate in the Heartland Days 5k and have their final weigh-in.

Kleiss says each year participants are amazed by the amount of time they can shave off a 5k run from February through June.
