PANTS Holiday Trimmings Challenge

Published October 18, 2018

Make your holidays healthy with the PANTS Holiday Trimmings Challenge

The table is set. The turkey is brining, the pies are in the oven and the nice china is out. The only thing left to do is … weigh in?

That’s right. Silverthorne Recreation Center Fitness & Wellness Coordinator Renee Rogers challenges YOU to sign up today for the 5th Annual PANTS Holiday Trimmings Challenge.

It works like this: Grab a couple of friends and sign up as a team. (You can sign up as an individual, but a group will keep it fun and keep you accountable.) Then, set a goal to maintain your collective weight throughout the holiday season.

Weigh-ins take place in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving. All weigh-ins must be completed prior to Thanksgiving to be eligible and there are various locations and times available throughout the County. If you and your team have maintained your combined weight – and not gained any weight – when you weigh out on Jan. 2, you’ll be eligible to win prizes!

The challenge is an initiative of PANTS (Physical Activity and Nutrition Team of the Summit), an organization whose aim is to encourage health and wellness in Summit County. In past years, participants have gotten creative with team names and motivation methods. Teams are encouraged to share photos for the chance to receive a “shoutout” on social media.

The cost to participate is $15 per individual, and all adults 18+ across the county are encouraged to join in. Grab a team today (ideal size is 2-6 people) and register online at
