INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Exercising with a partner or team leads to personal success. When you join a team you are more likely to stay committed because, well, no one wants to disappoint their team!

The Incline Village Recreation Center is kicking off the 2016 Annual Fitness Challenge, The Battle of the Bulge, on February 15. The battle will continue for eight weeks, ending on April 10.

Participants are challenged to jumpstart or increase their current exercise program while building camaraderie, increasing awareness and growing the wellness community in Incline Village/Crystal Bay.

Anyone can battle! Friends, neighbors, and community members are welcome. Businesses, organizations, clubs, and schools are encouraged to form a team.

Here’s the skinny

Register for the Battle of the Bulge and be assigned to a Battle Sergeant and Platoon. Together you will Battle the Bulge through participation in approved fitness activities designed to catapult you toward the goal of burning 8,000 calories in eight weeks.

Calories must be burned through dedicated exercise and/or a sports regiment at 250 cal/day 4x/week for 8 weeks. Participants will be required to track and submit results weekly.

Battle results and Platoon awards will be announced at the End of the War party on April 22.

All who complete the challenge will receive their commemorative Battle of the Bulge T-shirt and be entered in a raffle for exciting prizes.

You don’t have to be present to win! Committing to improved health is a winning proposition no matter where you are.

We are making it as easy as possible to be a part of the battle whether you are in Lake Tahoe or Timbuktu! Register, Battle the Bulge, and submit your results weekly. It’s that easy!
