Bay Athletic Club hosts Thinner Winner to promote community health

ALPENA, Mich — Bay Athletic Club is holding its Thinner Winner competition starting Sunday October 6. If you need one major reason to participate, here it is: the winning group will receive a $1,000 cash prize, and that’s just the start. Personal trainer, Sarah Morrison says,

“People always end up losing a great amount of weight, and it’s fun. As a community we lose well over a thousand pounds, and that’s just a big deal!”

The program will last five weeks. During that time, groups of four to six participants will focus on keeping one another motivated to make healthy choices inside, and outside the gym. At least one person in each group must be a non–member at Bay Athletic Club, but everyone will have access to tools that will help them succeed.

“Thinner Winner works because you have that team aspect, so you’ve got your friends, your family, your coworkers, who are counting on you, or you’re meeting at workouts or they can see your lunch that you’re having at work, but we also have Thinner Winner exclusive workouts throughout the program that are really fun to get to.”

The competition also pushes participants in the right direction by offering fun activities like hikes and nutritional support. If you’d like to sign up, be aware, time is limited. You can call Bay Athletic Club at (989)356-5600 or visit for an application.
