The 2020 Lighten Up 4 Montgomery County is a 2-month weight loss competition coordinated by Fusion Fitness & Aquatics and sponsored by local businesses. The goal of Lighten Up 4 Montgomery County is and always has been to help our county become healthier! We want to keep you motivated and determined to reach your weight loss goals.


How it Works

Your starting weight must be recorded at Fusion during the starting week January 6-10, 2020To sign up you must: stop by Fusion, weigh in, and pay $20 entry fee. (Don’t worry - you will get a chance to get it, and more back, keep reading!).

At midpoint, January 30-February 1, 2020, you must come to Fusion for this weigh-in. If by this point you have lost 5% of your weight, you get $10 back. If not, no worries, keep trying, you still have a chance to get it back and win more. For those who do not lose the 5%, their money stays in the pot (the money pot!).

February 24-28, is the final (kind of!) weigh-in. This will also be done here at Fusion. If by this point, you have lost 8% of your weight, you get 1/2 your cut of the pot. Our sponsors will be donating money for the pot as well to sweeten the end take away. Last year those who lost the goal percentage won $140 each! All weight reports are kept confidential. 

May 4-8, BONUS weigh-in. If at this weigh-in you have lost more weight or have maintained your weight from Final weigh-in, you will get the other half of your cut of the pot.
