ARARAT - Ararat has come together to achieve a remarkable public weight-loss goal on Australian television and now the whole community has the opportunity to prove it is quickly becoming one of the most motivated and fittest towns in the country.
Residents and visitors to the town are set to be part of the very first Ararat Boot Camp Weekend, hosted by The Biggest Loser's trainer, Shannan Ponton.
Ararat will lead the way from Friday June 6 to Sunday June 8 at Richardson Oval, hosting the Bootcamp Weekend, designed not only for Ararat residents, but anyone who'd like to visit the town and see where The Biggest Loser started this season, while achieving some amazing fitness milestones.
Shannan will not only educate participants about maintaining a healthy lifestyle and ongoing exercise regimes, but also warm up all participants for their activities and challenges for the weekend. Just like on the Biggest Loser, Shannan will be by the participants' side, motivating them to achieve their own personal goals, along with some of your favourite contestants from the show.
The weekend will be a fun experience for the whole family and encourages locals to live by the new town slogan, Active Ararat.
The Boot Camp Weekend experience will include physical challenges, healthy meals, relaxation sessions, plus a day trip to the scenic Grampians region, to visit the picturesque Mt William.
Entry for the Ararat Boot Camp Weekend is just $80 per person. Participants will need to provide their own tents and camping gear and will be supplied with official Ararat Boot Camp team gear (including t-shirt, cap and drink bottle) and healthy meals for the weekend.
