Partner up with a trusted friend or loved one and get ready to join this fun weight loss competition. This 12-week program will motivate you to lose weight, tone up and create healthy lifestyle habits. Each week, participants will be awarded points for active participation. You will be held accountable through weekly weigh ins, challenges, check ins with partners, group meetings and special events. You will be required to submit a weekly progress sheet. No Partner, no worries, we will select a partner for you with similar goals. The duo with the most points wins.

The program runs from the kick-off on Sunday, January 12 at 11:00 AM through the wrap up celebration on Sunday, April 5th.

At the end of the 12 weeks the partners with the greatest number of points will become the Shoreline Partner Slimdown Challenge Champions. The winning partners will each win a $50 Amazon Gift card.
