Gadsden County, FL --- July 24, 2012
Teams throughout Gadsden County are gearing up to shed pounds and get healthy.
"Get Going Gadsden" officially kicked off earlier in the month and groups have already been logging their hours.
The three month challenge is putting teams against each other to see who can log the most workout hours, and weight loss.
They still have a lot of time left, but people are already declaring victory.
Havana Health and Fitness is one of the many organizations and businesses with a team in the competition.
"Oh yes, [we] already claimed it [victory]," said Bridget Potter, a member of Havana Health and Fitness. "We're going to be the group with the highest number of exercise minutes. Our goal for each person who exercises is based on the department of health recommendation."
At the Havana Health and Fitness Club, they're striving to have everyone exercise, 30 minutes a day, five days a week.
The Gadsden County Health Department will award prizes for several categories of fitness achievement.
