Eslimathon

Last Friday, 21st of January, saw the start of the eagerly awaited Operation Transformation Eslin-style when participants in the Eslimathon were weighed Eslin Community Centre. The concept of the Eslimathon is that all the participants are on teams of ten and compete to see which team can lose the most weight in 8 weeks, with the final weigh-in on March 22nd and the winning team will be announced at a special function in Eslin Community Centre the following weekend. Teams will weigh in each Tuesday evening (Friday for students) and their total weight loss recorded. Teams will be kept up to date about their progress by text message. In order to help participants lose weight and improve their health there will be activities such as aerobics, motivational talks, dietary advice sessions, Pilates, walks and light exercises held in the Eslin Community Centre every Tuesday evening from 8-9pm. There will be a €3 charge payable at weigh-in but all activities in the centre will be free to all participants. Team captains will also organise healthy activities for their team. Anyone who would like to participate can contact any of the organisers: Sinead McLoughlin, Cait Reynolds, Liam Higgins, Ciara Bohan, Edel Gildea, Joe Reynolds, Grainne Bohan, John Gerard McLoughlin, Majella Higgins, Deirdre Reynolds, Club Chairman; John L. Reynolds, Secretary; Padraig Higgins or Treasurer Ray Bohan for further information or to get a sponsorship card.
