SAN ANTONIO — H-E-B’s Slim Down Showdown is no longer exclusively for employees.
A 16-week consumer version of H-E-B’s Slim Down Showdown will launch in June.
The retailer received more than 500 applications when it held an online entry program earlier this year.
On May 14, H-E-B will announce 25 customers to compete for a $10,000 grand prize and a $5,000 “fan favorite” prize.
Contestants will be selected based on their willingness and ability to publicly share their journey through the wellness program and the resulting lifestyle changes through blogs and vlogs.
All contestants will travel to San Antonio to participate in an intensive 3½-day wellness program with experts from H-E-B, Methodist Healthcare and Cooper Aerobics Center. H-E-B will manage the contest, as well as the nutritional and fitness education.
Methodist Healthcare will provide medical oversight for the program and Cooper will provide speakers for the program and manage health coaching.
Once they return home, contestants will receive weekly coaching and support in addition to the meal plans and fitness goals established during the wellness program.
The winner will be announced in October at a Healthy at H-E-B Food & Fitness Festival in San Antonio.
