  • A way to tackle the most common New Years resolution starts next Tuesday night.
    The Fair Acres Family YMCA will begin the annual Battle of the Bulge Jan. 14, at 5:30 p.m. Locals are encouraged to sign up now for this 12-week weight loss competition.
    Participants will experience team support as they are motivated by individual coaches. Nutritional hand-outs will be provided, and teams will have weekly weigh-ins.
    Tericia Mixon, event coordinator for the battle, says it's a fun way to get fit, healthy and meet any physical goals you may have. Plus, you make friends and enjoy some local competition. The Battle of the Bulge emphasizes team work-outs, mega trivia nights with prizes. The ultimate prize is a free three-month membership to the Y for the winner based on greatest body weight loss percentage.
    The battle is free for members at the Y, and $130 for non-members. Deadline to enter is Jan. 20. For more information, contact the Y at 358-1070.
