Each person will be weighed, have their body fat measured and answer brief questions about their medical history. The personal trainer will recommend some fitness and diet tips for the 12-week program.
The person showing the greatest success at losing weight and maintaining a healthy diet will win a $2,500 cash prize. There is a $100 dollar donation to join Transform for the Cure. All of the money raised will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to help in the fight against breast cancer.
