BALL, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - One Cenla gym is offering a way to shed some pounds and win some money along the way.
Fitness Connection in Ball is hosting it's 'Thinner Winner' competition and the winning team could walk away $500 richer.
Teams of four participate in diet and exercise programs.
After six weeks, the team that loses the most inches and pounds is crowned the 'Thinner Winner'.
"We had one in October, we lost 100 pounds and 64 inches with five teams, it's because it's people helping people, we meet once a week, we weigh in and we talk about our healthy eating tips, our exercise programs and we just motivate and support each other," said Darlene Ferment.
