Members have access to fitness advice and an easy-to-follow eight-week nutrition and meal plan to aid in their New Year’s weight loss goals. All participants will receive weekly emails filled with valuable advice and insights from Sports Clubs pros, as well as extra support in the clubs. After completing the eight-week challenge, winners will be selected among the registered participants regardless of their weight loss results.
