This is an ongoing program consisting of fitness challenges that encourage patrons to compete with each other as well as with themselves.  The challenges vary each month, and focus on different aspects of physical fitness. Participants inquire about the rules, proper execution of exercises, scoring, and prizes with weight room staff. Weight Room staff will monitor the challenge; oversee registration, scoring and results.  Patrons are encouraged to participate as frequently as possible throughout the month, but can only participate once per day.  An overall male and female winner, along with 1 random drawing participation winner, are chosen at the end of every month and awarded a Find you Fit t-shirt or tank.
