Donna Scott’s River Valley Slimdown returns just in time to tackle the upcoming shorter days and bigger meals! This innovative & popular fitness program offers a twist on traditional weight-loss pools. While participants compete towards prizes and a cash jackpot for losing the most weight, they find themselves in an immersive experience that combines nutrition and fitness with community support. The next 10-week weight loss challenge, starting September 7th, will end the week before Thanksgiving.
As autumn approaches (with the holidays quickly following), stress and weight gain are sure to arrive right along with the changing leaves. The Fall River Valley Slimdown is the perfect way to prepare. With a new body, new understanding of nutrition, and a new group of friends, participants will be poised to handle the seasonal changes in stride.
Donna Scott, owner of IFoundFitness in Deep River, knows that the key to a long-term healthy life is support in the early stages of the journey. Years of experience as a certified fitness instructor has taught her that willpower comes from community. “It’s so easy to give up and throw in the towel when you’re tired and stressed,” Scott says. “You need to be able to vent, get inspired, and hear a little encouragement!”
Donna and her River Valley Slimdown challenge have already led over 100 participants to lose over 800 pounds in the last five challenges. This includes three high school seniors who took the challenge as their final project, getting fit for life! The program inspires health-seekers to loose weight with cash incentives, prizes, and weekly fitness classes. Members get a chance to bond as they learn together through nutrition classes led by Penny Smyth of New Beginnings Health Coaching.
Challenge participants will also be giving back to their community. The River Valley Slimdown always donates 20% of the jackpot proceeds to charity. The spring Slimdown donated over $400 to The American Red Cross and the CT Disaster Relief Fund for first responders.
