According to the Byron Shire News, twenty people from the Byron Bay area in Eastern Australia will soon have the opportunity to drastically lose weight and get in shape in a manner akin to that used on that popular television series “The Biggest” Loser, with 20 contestants taking part in an intensive training regimen. The idea was conceived by Kylie Flevell as her project in Landmark Education’s Self-Expression and Leadership Program, who says that “This 12-week intensive course will provide 20 contestants with a world-class exercise and nutrition program that will be tailored to the individual.”
Flevell enlisted a range of sponsors in the project, the largest of whom is Candice Marslen, owner of two fitness facilities in Byron Bay – she is providing $24,000 worth of health and fitness programs at her own expense. Marslen is also offering identical free programs for others who don’t qualify as one of the 20 participants, albeit without the chance to win the contest.
Two winners of the contest will be awarded a variety of spa treatments, ongoing fitness classes, beauty treatments and other prizes.
Those interested in taking part can show up at the launch day, held July 31st at 11am at Railway Park in Byron Bay, or contact Marslen in advance at 0402 749 641. A $100 registration fee is required to take part. Read more details about the fitness program and the contest at the Byron Shire News website.
