Fittest Lady competition to kick off Sunday

TAYLOR COUNTY—There is a difference between strength and fitness, and Tygart Valley Rehabilitation and Fitness puts both to the test during an annual contest that calls for ladies of all walks of life to strive to be their best athletically.

The 5th Annual Fittest Lady Contest will kick off on Monday, and calls for females to put their strength, determination, drive and muscle to the test through a battery of various events.

“There will be a total of 10 events for the ladies to compete in. The fastest time completing the events wins,” noted Fitness Center Manager Ricky Williams.

He added that the competition isn’t just a head-to-head contest, but it helps those taking place push themselves harder in each event.

“Not only are the ladies competing with each other, but it becomes a competition for each participant to achieve a better time than their last attempt, in order to claim the top spot,” Williams commented. “It’s really neat to watch as the ladies compete with not just one another, but themselves.”

During the contest, a staff member will record each competitor’s times and completion for each event, for their chance to be named fittest lady.

“These ladies will be put to the test. Balance, coordination and core strength are some major factors in the contest,” shared Williams.

The contest will run the entire month of May, but competitors are encouraged to get an early start on their quest to be named with Tygart Valley Rehabilitation and Fitness’s Fittest Lady of 2022.

“We do encourage competitors to get an early start, and to keep an eye on the leader board throughout the contest. If they see that someone has outperformed them, they can always repeat that event to try and earn a better time,” explained Williams.

The Fittest Ladies Contest is designed to inspire everyone to work hard, become healthier through increased exercise and to encourage healthier eating habits, while motivating participants to push to be the fittest of them all.

“We hope that it also encourages everyone, both men and women, to become healthier,” noted Williams. “And who wouldn’t want the chance to win a cash payout and a trophy?”

“This contest was a great success in previous years,” Williams commented. “Let’s see who the fittest lady in is in the area once again!

Those interested in taking part in this year’s competition, or those wishing to obtain more information and rules on the contest, should call Tygart Valley Rehabilitation and Fitness Center at 304-265-2191.
