ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The deadline is approaching to sign up at the YMCA to lose weight.


The Albany Area YMCA is holding a fun weight-loss program, called "Team Lean."  

It's a 12 week competition for Y-members and non-members. Teams of up to five can win cash prizes if they lose the highest percentage of weight.

Participants can workout at the location of their choice but must weigh in as a group at the Albany or Lee County YMCA once a week.

"This 12 week program is perfect because they've got the accountability of weighing in each week. Because if they don't weigh in, they're charged money," said Program Director Mary Ganzel. "If they gain weight, they get charged money. But all the money goes back into the big pot of money that gets split up between the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners."

Early registration ends tomorrow afternoon at 2.   You can still register at both locations until January 7th, but you'll have to pay an additional fee. 

The first weigh in is on January 8th.
