Essex Wellness Center Presents: The River Valley Slim-Down Challenge –

January 9th Start!

The River Valley Slimdown is a “biggest loser-style” competition where the participants with the largest percentage of weight lost over the challenge period share prize monies and receive prizes from local businesses such as massages, make-overs, and more. Participants pay a small registration fee and then participate in a minimum of two (but normally three or more!) Fitness on the Water classes per week such as barre, yoga, spin, Zumba and Tabata bootcamp (a form of high intensity, interval training that gets results – fast!). Donna, Program Manager, is at the Fitness on the Water studios early with the first classes ideally timed at 5.30am for those wanting to workout before work, other classes are run during the day for moms of school-age children or in the evening. In addition, mini-workshops and consultations are provided by an experienced health coach during the 12-week challenge.
