Participants of this year's Thinner Winner Contest gathered at Victoria Park for the launch on Saturday.

Team members were weighed and measured as they prepared to embark on the six-week journey to better health.

The challenge, now in its fourth year and sponsored by The Royal Gazette, is put on by The Athletic Club and those taking part will have complete access to The Athletic Club fitness centre, classes and spa during the programme.

As an extra to the food guides provided, nutritional express sessions will be held weekly, including group discussions on nutrition, menus and improved eating plans.

Special workouts will take place on Thursdays at 6pm in Victoria Park and will include Chisl'd, MetaHIIT, Strong by Zumba and Turbo Kick. Not strictly for Thinner Winner participants, these sessions are open to the community.

At the end of the six weeks, the team that loses the greatest percentage of weight and inches will win $2,000.
