See Our Current Contest Under Way Here

In March of 2008 we started our weight loss contest on South Hill with a twist…we played to raise money for charity. In our first 12 week contest our 30 contestants lost 793 lbs and raised $19,000 for charity. Our second 12 week contest saw 30 new contestants lose in excess of 700 lbs and the value of their fundraising efforts topped $81,000!

In January we launched our 3rd contest with 80 contestants and 8 coaches…triple the size of our previous contest. As we finish up the last 6 weeks of this contest we are in the LAUNCH PHASE OF NEXT LEGACY FOR A CAUSE CONTEST STARTING MAY 4TH!

What – Legacy For A Cause II (LFC2) – Although is it is our 4th contest we operated under a different name in the first two contest…hence LFC2.

Where – LA Fitness on South Hill

When – Starts on May 4th – Ends July 23rd

Why – Lose weight, have fun, raise money for charity

Who are we playing for – We are playing to help people get back on track to a healthier lifestyle and also raise money for….MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION. We want to make wishes from come true for children with life threatening illnesses.

How does it work? – We have 12 teams of 10 for a total of 120 contestant slots available. Teams will work out twice per week together at LA Fitness and have a weekly weigh in.

When are the workouts? – We’ll have 6 teams working out on Mondays and Wednesdays (3 at 5:45 PM and 3 at 7:00 PM) The other 6 teams will be working out on Tuesdays and Thursdays (3 at 5:45 PM and 3 at 7:00 PM).

How long are the workouts? – Approximately ONE hour

How much does it cost? – $99.00 contest registration fee payable to Kieranslist.com (you receive 2 team workout t-shirts and 1 team hoodie sweatshirt) PLUS pay your monthly membership at LA Fitness.

How are we fundraising? – Contestants will be given simple “pledge forms” and asked to contact friends and family who will pledge their teams weight loss. For example let’s say your friend pledges $.20 per pound and your team loses 150 lbs together. You would collect $30.00 in pledge money for the charity we are playing for.

Personal training is NOT included in this price but it is available to contestants for an additional fee through LA Fitness and Body Logic.
