The Slim Down Showdown is a 12 week competition where participants have a chance to win a $10,000 grand prize. The Showdown begins in San Antonio with an intensive, seven day wellness program known as Fit Camp, complete with fitness and nutrition training, cooking lessons, meal training and more.
Upon returning home, contestants receive coaching and support from H-E-B’s Registered Dietitians, past contestants, and wellness coaches. At the halfway mark, contestants return to San Antonio for two days to receive a midpoint screening and reconnect with their personal fitness and nutrition experts to receive additional hands-on cooking, meal planning, and fitness training.
In 2010, H-E-B made a commitment to our employees, who we call Partners, to help them become healthier and live longer. In 2012, we made the same commitment to our Customers and the Communities we serve. As a part of this pledge, we began our first community Slim Down Showdown, a contest designed to give participants the education and tools they need to lead a healthier lifestyle. The success of the contestants, combined with the excitement generated within the community, showed us we were on the right track.
