The Gym in Port Isabel will be hosting a two month event called The Weight-Loss 1000 to bring health consciousness to the fore­front of people’s minds in the Laguna Madre area.

Joe Altamirano is the driv­ing force behind the event.

“Hopefully by next year it will either be the 1500 or the 2000, I don’t know,” Al­tamirano said. “This is not the only one we are trying to put on.”

It is his hope to break the mental barrier people seem to have towards los­ing weight through practi­cal application of work-out techniques.
