Posted: Updated:
 KENNEWICK, WA -  Gold's Gym in Kennewick today kicked off their 12 week weight-loss challenge. 

The '12 Week Challenge' is a body transformation contest designed specifically to motivate those who are looking to make a significant lifestyle change through proper fitness and nutrition or who need some extra motivation to get going. 

Each person has their own reason why they want to lose weight and it's that inspiration that drives them. 

One participant says his trainer has been preparing him for the challenge. 

"Oh my goodness yes it's going to be so much more intense. He's been taking it kind of easy on me. He told me that's over. This is going to be a lot more intense and I'm looking forward to the push, to the challenge. It's a reason to really push yourself and excel," says Phillip Ward, participant. 

Winners will get their share of $100,000 in cash and other prizes that are up for grabs.
