Summer Me Scheduled to Begin March 3

Weigh-ins for the UAMS Fitness Center’s Summer Me weight loss contest start Monday, March 3. 

Winners of the twelve-week weight-loss contest are determined by the percentage of bodyweight lost. Prizes will be awarded to the top three losers.  This year’s contest also has an optional body-fat percentage category for those who do not want to lose a large amount of weight but would still like to participate.  The top body fat percentage loser will also receive prizes.


Weigh-ins will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday, March 3 through Friday, March 7 in the UAMS Fitness Center, COPH Room 8250. Body fat percentages will be measured Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, March 3, 4 and 5 from 8:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m. only.  The contest ends Friday, May 23.


Participants can gain an edge in the contest by earning a bonus week past the contest deadline to lose those few extra pounds. Each week participants will receive an email with a link to a fitness- or nutrition-related article or study as well as a short quiz.  Complete and return each weekly quiz and earn a bonus week before being required to weigh out!


This program is free of charge to all UAMS employees and students however there is a $5 supply charge for those choosing to participate in the body fat percentage portion of the contest.  Membership to the UAMS Fitness Center is not required to participate.
