A campaign is being launched in Melton where residents can improve their health and fitness while competing for prizes at the same time.
The Melton Mowbray Fat Loss and Fitness Challenge will run for 12 weeks from October 26 at different venues across the borough.
Participants sign up to take part in four categories - under 20s (12-19 years), women aged 20-55, men 20-55 and the over 55s - they have to live in Melton and they must attend at least 10 out of 12 weekly exercise classes and nutrition and lifestyle talks to be eligible for prizes.
Entry costs £20 per person and there are cash prizes of up to £750 to be won and other bonus prizes for the initiative, which is organised by Healthidays health and fitness company and sponsored by Melton Council and Melton Sport & Health Alliance.
