Local club challenges you to win by losing

Members of staff at Pinacle Health & Fitness clubs in Elmira and Milverton are gearing up for an influx of exercisers as their annual Biggest Winner competition kicks off this week.

The Biggest Winner is a six-week fitness and nutrition program where teams of participants compete against each other to lose the most weight. The program consists of a nutrition plan, as well as exercise challenges, or ‘boot camps,’ that happen twice per week. The exercise challenges are made up of a number of different workouts that include everything from aerobic exercise to working with the punching bag to pushing a gigantic tire across the Pinacle parking lot.

“By the end of the six-week contest, I have seen improved energy, better ability to deal with stress, better mood, better sleep patterns and better body composition,” club owner Barney Kuntze said of last year’s participants. “It’s pretty amazing.”

Between Pinacle’s Elmira and Milverton locations, more than 1,220 pounds were lost collectively during last year’s competition.

This fall’s challenge officially begins Oct. 18. The club is currently taking registrations on their website, www.pinaclehealthandfitness.com. The cost of the program is $50 and no membership to the club is required. Once on the site, fill out your name, number, t-shirt size and whether or not you have a team or you are an individual person looking for a team. The first weigh-in at the Elmira location is set for Oct. 12-16, at which time payments can be made in person at the club.

“We are expecting a maximum turn out for this Biggest Winner competition this fall,” said Kuntze.

  1. HI Barney, can I get some information regarding the new contest that starts next week Monday Oct 18th? Can we choose which class we want to attend, ie, Monday morning and then Thursday or Friday morning or are there specific classes we must attend. If I go to the 6:00 pm Bootcamp, am I allowed to stay for the Fitness Kickboxing? Is there a limit of 2 classes per week or can we come to all of them at no extra cost? Thanks Barney, I await your answers. Connie Tanner
