The Jamestown Area YMCAs are geared up to help area residents and business employees stay on track with regard to their health this holiday season with their eighth annual Zero Gain Campaign.
Participants in the Zero Gain Campaign pay only $5 and weigh in before Thanksgiving from Nov. 19-21 and weigh out after New Year's from Jan. 1-3 at either the Jamestown or Lakewood YMCAs or at their workplace.
Those who maintain their weight or lose pounds will receive a prize. Participants will also receive three guest passes to the YMCA and chances to win certificates for personal training, massage, ballroom dancing, or tennis.
"Most Americans engage in over indulgent eating behaviors from Halloween thru New Years and sometimes beyond," says Meg Pickard, wellness director. "When that happens, then we set ourselves up for poor eating patterns, ill health, and weight gain during the holidays."
For more information, please contact Pickard at the Jamestown YMCA at 664-2802, ext. 231, or Donna Garvey at the Lakewood YMCA at 763-0303 or you may pick up a registration form at either YMCA location. Other information is also available on the YMCA website at www.jamestownymca.org.
