Join the Campaign to Lose 500 pounds in 12 weeks
The Valley Hospital, The Mayors Wellness Campaign, the Paramus Board of Health, and Gold’s Gym of Paramus are challenging you to help make Paramus healthier! After last year’s success — the campaign exceeded its 500-lb weight-loss goal — we once again challenge the residents of Paramus to lose a collective 500 pounds in 12 weeks. This town-wide challenge is free and open to residents of Paramus and borough employees.
The challenge includes:
• Weekly weigh-ins,
• Motivational health & fitness classes,
• Free 2-week membership at Gold’s Gym of Paramus,
• Free pre-and post-challenge cholesterol and blood sugar screening for the first 50 people registered,
• And anyone who completes the program, no matter their individual weight loss, will be entered for a chance to win prizes.
