The 2015 annual Ballard Fitness Fest will kick off in the neighborhood on February 16 at EDGE Personal Training Studio (2821 NW Market St).
The three month long fitness competition will challenge participants to both get and stay in shape and is open to all locals who live and work in Ballard and surrounding areas.
EDGE Personal Training owner, Erik Hroncich, established the competition six years ago to help physically and mentally transform peoples’ lives.
In past contests Hroncich says that participants have become “healthier, more confident and gained a better body image.” In 2013, winner Danie Skredsvig lost over 8% of her body fat (15lbs of body fat) in just 12 weeks to become the first ever female Champion!
Participants who enter the competition in a bid to loose the most weight during the three month period have a chance at winning $750 worth of prizes. The first place winner scores a $250 gift certificate to a Ballard business of their choice and three free training sessions at EDGE.
To prepare for the competition Hroncich is also offering participants, who are new to EDGE, an introductory training package of 3 personal training sessions, a functional movement screen and fitness program development, for $199 (35% off).
The contest begins February 17 and ends May 23 and competitors enter by contacting EDGE at (206) 782–1505 by or between February 16 and 27 to set up an initial $25 (plus tax) fitness assessment. Participants will work out for three months and re-test between May 18 and May 22, with the winner being announced around June 1st.
Thinking about participating? Hroncich’s enthusiasm for the event puts it simply, “it’s an opportunity to get in better shape for the summer and a chance to win some great prizes. What could be cooler than that?”
