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.
