(Video) Five set to lose and win in Courts ‘Get Fit’ promotion

Five people have a lot to lose and more to gain by February 20 by dint of having been selected to compete in the Courts Guyana Inc ‘Get Fit’ promotion, which was launched at the Main Street store yesterday.

Courts customers were invited to be an active part of an in-store fitness demonstration, following which four women: Demi Heathwit, Nacasia Logan, Abiola Bourne and Larissa Lovell and one man: Kevin Ready were selected to lose weight for a chance to win gym equipment worth almost $100,00.

After the fitness session with trainer Thurston and under the watchful eyes of VFitness Trainer Vanilla and a host of consumers, the quintet was weighed-in. They were later given personalised training plans, diet and work equipment and instructions to work at home.

The biggest loser will also be the biggest winner, snagging gym equipment and bragging rights. In addition, all contestants will be fit for Mashramani.

In a release, Courts said it was pleased to be associated with the health of customers and with the just concluded holiday season; everyone will want to shed some pounds in time for the upcoming Mash season.

Contestant Abiola Bourne said her goal was to lose over 100 pounds in the promotion and win. Kevin Ready, the lone male, said he did not feel any pressure and hoped to be the eventual winner.

The final weigh-in is on February 20, where the winner will have the choice of one complete gym equipment.

The others will receive packages along with trophies and other prizes.
