Sherry Elchynski is the owner of Fit 4 Life by Sherry and is hosting a lifestyle and weight loss challenge in her gym, starting Monday, Jan. 13. Elchynski has a B.S. in Health and PE from Slippery Rock University, is ACE certified and has been teaching exercise classes since 1986.
Along with her expertise she will have the help of three other certified instructors.
The challenge will be located at her gym, 3155 Williams Rd., and will go for eight weeks, finishing on Monday, March 9. She has also opened this opportunity to gm members and nonmembers alike.
“You will get to choose your weight loss goal but healthy weight loss experts suggest one to two pounds per week and I would say anywhere between eight to 16 pounds is a good goal to set,” Elchynski said. “I offer step, line dance and high intensity interval classes, HIIT, and all levels of experience are welcome to try the classes. I will adapt them for anyone.”
Entry fee for the challenge will be $40 and if a participant’s goal is met he or she will receive the entry fee back minus a $5 nonrefundable administrative fee. The price is the same for members and nonmembers of the gym.
“Have no fear because we are all here to support everyone along the way with encouragement, tips, healthy recipes and workouts to help you not only change your lifestyle to become healthy, but make that weight loss goal,” Elchynki said. “Grab a friend who wants to make some changes and join us, just remember clean non-street sneakers and comfortable clothing are a must.”
If interested in the challenge, Elchynski can be contacted at 814-881-6269 for more information or visit the website or Facebook page Fit 4 Life by Sherry. The schedule will be posted on the website and Facebook page.
