The 2016 annual Ballard Fitness Fest has kicked off in the neighborhood 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 (Queen Anne, Magnolia, Crown Hill etc).
EDGE Personal Training owner, Erik Hroncich, established the competition seven years ago to help physically and mentally transform peoples’ lives.
In order to enter, locals need to contact EDGE Personal Training and set up an initial fitness assessment between now and next Friday, March 4, and then kick butt until for three months until their re-test between May 23 and May 27.
“The fitness assessment consists of a body composition test, circumference measurements and body weight,” says Hroncich.
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!
By entering the competition, participants 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, three free training sessions at EDGE and a piece featuring their win on local media sites.
To enter the competition, locals can choose from a few new options with major discounts this year:
- Entry fee only – $25 (plus tax)
- Entry fee with nutritional review – $75 (plus tax)
- Entry fee, nutritional review, three personal training sessions, a functional movement screen and fitness program development – $299 (plus tax)
The EDGE will also be offering a Nutritional Clinic with general health information and recipe ideas, running/walking groups and classes to help participants prepare for the competition.
