LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – One local high school is pushing students and families to live healthier in 2013.
Presentation Academy is hosting a 90-day challenge to promote healthy eating and exercise.
It’s a lot like The Biggest Loser.
The idea started with Oscar Taylor, who helps keep the school’s volleyball team in shape.
His success with those girls is now being offered to the entire community.
“We want our girls who are already physically fit to remain so but to encourage all their family members to have good eating habits, to work out on a regular basis and knowing that when they’re physically fit, they will be emotionally and mentally fit also,” Principal Barbara Wine said.
Students and families were weighed in Sunday and were able to learn about health living from motivational speakers.
In 30 days, they will come back to check in and after 90, they will check on the person who has lost the largest percentage of weight and inches.
The registration fees will be split up and given to the winners.
