Physician WINs: FitClub Summer Competition Offers Cash Prizes


The newest FitClub classes will focus on fat burning and body sculpting.

Summer is around the corner and Cedars-Sinai physicians are welcome to join a new eight-week challenge designed to get you ready for pool parties, BBQs and trips to the beach.

Need more of an incentive? The three people with the most points at the end of the challenge will win cash prizes. First place will receive $350, second place will receive $150 and the third-place winner will receive $50.

The newest FitClub classes, which run from April 15 to June 7, will focus on fat burning and body sculpting and are appropriate for all fitness levels. Participants will accumulate points in three unique categories: fat loss, attendance and social influence.

"If I win, I'll invest in the next challenge," said Miguel Can, a patient services representative in the Kidney Living Donor Program, who is currently participating in his first FitClub program, a mud-run training. To date, Can has lost 11 pounds and 4 percent body fat.

"FitClub is so convenient, encouraging and fun," Can added. "It has also been a great way to meet fellow staff and feel more connected to the medical center."

The eight-week program, taking place in Thalians Auditorium, includes access to 12 fitness classes per week, a meal plan template, before and after body composition analysis and a FitClub T-shirt. The cost of the program is $225.
