If you have made a New Year's Resolution to get in shape and lose weight, you're gonna want to check this out.  Here at WBKR, we are so excited to announce that we have teamed up with Edge Body Boot Camp and EdgeFit for a brand new contest called BKR Boot Camp.  Angel, Barb Birgy, Dave Spencer, Erin Grant and I are forming boot camp teams and you have the chance to join us and potentially win a year-long membership to Edge.


Here's how it works!


Starting Monday, January 8th, we'll begin building boot camp teams at WBKR and here at WBKR.com.  If you are interested in joining a team, be listening for our specially-designed BKR Boot Camp cues-to-call.  Each weekday during The Morning Drive w/ Chad and Angel, you'll have chances to win a spot on Team Chad or Team Angel.  Each weekday between 10am and 2pm, you'll have the chance to join Team Barb.  And each weekday afternoon during The Drive Home w/ Dave Spencer (2pm to 6pm), you'll have the opportunity to join Team Dave.  To win a spot on one of the above teams, WBKR listeners must be Caller #9 on the WBKR studio lines (270-926-WBKR or 1-800-844-WBKR).  There will also be five participants drawn from online registrations.  Those participants will comprise Team Erin, led by WBKR overnight host Erin Grant.  There will be a total of five teams, consisting of six members each!  Online winners will be announced and posted on Friday, January 12th.  Participants MUST be at least 18 years of age.


All team members will meet at EdgeFiT (4036 Frederica Street, Owensboro) on Monday, January 15th or Tuesday, January 16th at (times TBA).  There, each participant will sign hold harmless waivers from Townsquare Media and Edge.  Plus, each participant will undergo a physical assessment that includes body weight, body fat percentage and important measurements.  While there will be weekly weigh-ins, participants will undergo a complete follow-up assessment during Week Three and Week Six of the contest.  Participants will also be required to complete a survey about exercise history, work history, personal goals (weight loss goals) for participation in BKR Boot Camp, and reasons why you have chosen to participate at this time.  All participants consent to sharing their journeys, success stories and struggles on WBKR, WBKR.com, the radio station's social media sites and similar sites owned and operated by Edge.


All BKR Boot Camp participants will be required to join the Edge text program and can do so by texting EDGE to 77094.  Participants will receive motivational texts as well as important information about nutrition, goal setting and more.  Plus, each BKR Boot Camp team will have its own private and personal team page on Facebook.  There they will be able to share success stories with fellow team members, team captains and assigned accountability coaches.


All BKR Boot Camp members will be given six weeks of access to Edge Body Boot Camp (4617 Sutherland Road, Owensboro) and EdgeFiT.  Participants will be assigned Accountability Coaches (Chris or Tonya) who will help motivate and track success. Each participant will also be given a BKR Boot Camp t-shirt!

Plus, participants will receive important information about nutrition and a temporary key card that allows them access to participating Edge facilities.  Each team member is required to participate in at least three thirty-minute boot camps per week, but is encouraged to participate in more.

Here is the current schedule of classes offered by Edge Body Boot Camp.


More work means more results.  WBKR team leaders (Chad, Angel, Barb, Dave Spencer and Erin) will publish a list of times they will be at Boot Camp so that team members may join them when possible for extra motivation and fun.  Each team captain is also a participant and will be monitored by Edge staff as well.  While we will monitor and track individual progress, a winning TEAM will be declared following the final weigh-in, scheduled for the week of February 26th, 2018.


The winning BKR Boot Camp team will be the team that has the highest combined percentage of weight loss (and those results will include those of team captains as well).  Each member of the winning, most successful team will win a year-long PLATINUM membership to Edge.  That membership includes: FREE Key Card ($10 replacement), 24 Hour Access, Hydro Massage and Tanning (1 time key card fee $10).
