Ann Arbor, MIPete Thomas, the Season 2 At-Home Winner of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser,” is putting all Genesee County residents on notice:  “Get ready to MOVE!”  On Monday, September 12, 2011, Thomas will rally the troops and lead Genesee County residents in a corporate physical activity challenge during the Commit to Fit! kick off event.  The event takes place from 12 Noon – 1:00 pm at Kearsley Street Flat Lot in Downtown Flint.

Pete Thomas will join City of Flint Mayor Dayne Walling, the President & CEO of HealthPlus, Bruce Hill, and Kirk Smith, the President and CEO of the Greater Flint Health Coalition, in launching the Commit to Fit! Fall 4 Fitness Challenge –a four week community-wide business-to-business challenge that runs from September 12 –October 7.

During the kick-off event, Pete Thomas will encourage the 30+ participating businesses and organizations, and facilitate the Corporate Physical Activity Challenge consisting of push-ups, squats and an obstacle course.  Three local fitness organizations –Genesys Athletic Center, Hurley Health and Fitness Center and the U of M Flint Recreation Center will lead the three competitions.  Thomas will announce the winners upon completion of the challenges.

Thomas expressed his enthusiasm for the Challenge and looks forward to being a part of this unique initiative.  “The Fall 4 Fitness county-wide business-to-business challenge is a great concept,” Thomas shares.  “Weight-loss and wellness are best achieved and sustained in a team environment.  Each participating business is a team, and ultimately—the 30+ businesses collectively are a team.  Together they can achieve phenomenal results for Genesee County!” Thomas states.

Each Fall 4 Fitness Challenge participant is encouraged to reach the goal of 30 minutes a day. During the Challenge individuals will keep track of the amount of time they are physically active and the organizations with the highest levels of participation will receive trophies, and their employees will receive additional raffle chances for $3,000 in cash prize drawings!
