Do you need an incentive to lace up those gym shoes, pull out that swimming suit, and get into shape? The Arthur and Gloria Muselman Wellness Pavilion/Swiss Village Inc. and the Berne Witness are partnering up to offer the Tenth Annual Village Meltdown, a contest awarding prizes to the top three teams and a cash donation given to a charity chosen by the overall winning team.

Participants of the Meltdown have lost a combined total of 8,250 pounds during the past 9 years! Let us be a part of your success story as you keep yourself accountable to your partner and us.

The contest will begin on Friday, January 5th, and end on Friday, March 16th. At least one team member must weigh in each Friday during regular business hours (which are now extended on Fridays until 9pm until March 31st!). Teams of two will compete to log the highest percentage of weight loss. You pick your partner and the results will be reported in the Berne Witness. Only the teams’ weight loss percentages will be reported; contestants’ weights will remain confidential.

To compete in the Village Meltdown, teammates need to come together to the Wellness Pavilion on January 5th, any time during open hours to register. The cost to enter is $20 per team.

1st Place Award: Six month free membership to the Muselman Wellness Pavilion and a donation to a charity of choice.
2nd Place Award: One month free membership to the Muselman Wellness Pavilion.
3rd Place Award: Free T-Shirt
