The 20 men and woman who enrolled in the Excel Fitness “Our Biggest Loser 2014” competition have put in countless hours logging their meals, adhering to a plan for healthy eating, and sweating tirelessly to shed weight and body fat with the hopes of winning this year’s grand prize: $245 CASH!!!
The competition, which ran from January 20, 2014-March 21, 2014, “has had a huge impact on client’s ability to set and stick with otherwise tricky New Year’s goals to lose weight, get active, and feel great,” says Excel Fitness trainer Ilicia Balaban.
Upon entry, participants scheduled a brief meeting with one of the Excel Fitness certified personal trainers to record initial weight and body fat. Participants were encouraged to take advantage of special training offers like a discounted small-group classes specially designed for weight-loss and a complementary nutrition consultation workshop with health coach Samantha Forbes. Many participants took advantage of the special offers, augmenting their oft-strenuous cardio sessions with uniquely designed weight training, calisthenics, plyo-metrics, kick-boxing, stretching and other effective exercise techniques.
Results were computed following the final weigh-in on March 21th; weight loss and body fat loss were divided by starting weight and body fat to achieve a relative number, making the competition fair for all participants, regardless of how much excess weight the individual was hoping to lose.
1ST Place: Kyle Kummer, $245 grand prize
2nd Place: Ryan Friedman: 1-year membership to give away to a friend of family member. ($520 value)
3rd Place: Lynn Kidd, 3 one-on-one personal training sessions to be given away to friend of family member ($225 value)
Of the initial 20 enrollees, 10 individuals completed the final weigh-in, and their weight/body fat loss numbers were astonishing. Altogether, Excel Fitness “Our Biggest Loser 2014” contestants lost over 75 lbs and reduced their body fat by an average of 1.9% per person.
