Rankins Fitness Center.
Participation in the 2010 Health Olympics is easy. Participants make a simple plan that includes: one food to avoid; one unhealthy eating habit to avoid; and a daily exercise goal. They are then asked to maintain a daily calendar to track and record when they achieve their daily goals. Participants are weighed at the beginning and end of the program.
Free tee shirts will be available for the first 200 participants who register for the 2010 Health Olympics. This year's shirts are kelly green, and are provided by Washington County Hospital.
Exercising daily is a key component of the Health Olympics approach to weight control and healthy living. Many Health Olympics participants get their exercise by walking or using home exercise equipment. Rankins Fitness has also become a popular spot for Health Olympians. Not only is Rankins a sign-up location for the 2010 Health Olympics, but Rankins has regularly promoted the Health Olympics by providing discounted memberships to Health Olympics participants, as well as free memberships to the top Health Olympics weight losers each year.
