ELIZABETHTOWN — Participants in the recent Healthworks Fitness & Wellness' Biggest Loser Contest dropped a total 315 pounds during the three-month program.
That achievement puts Healthworks Fitness & Wellness in a position to underscore the benefits of a healthy diet and exercise plan.
The effort also helped to lower cholesterol and blood pressure for some of the participants and improved the energy and confidence of all the contestants.
The contest started on Feb. 15 and ran through May 31.
“We monitored each participant's diet and nutrition in conjunction with creating a fitness regimen for them to follow,” Heather Sholar, co-manager at Healthworks Fitness & Wellness, said. “The participants gained confidence in the fitness center and found activities at the center outside of the Biggest Loser Contest that interested them.”
The participants attended a weekly class focused in nutrition and exercise. They worked with each other and with trainers to meet their goals.
The first-place winner, Debbie Hester, received a six-month membership to Healthworks Fitness & Wellness, an insulated cooler and blanket from Campbell Oil Company Heating & Air Conditioning, a one-hour massage from Total Massage & Skin Care and a $20 gift certificate to Food Lion.
The second-place winner, Pearlie Shipman, received a three-month membership to Healthworks Fitness & Wellness, a blanket and cooler from Campbell Oil Company Heating & Air Conditioning, a 30-minute massage from Total Massage & Skin Care, and a $10 gift certificate from Food Lion.
The third-place winner, Gloria Swindell, received a one-month membership to Healthworks Fitness & Wellness, a blanket and cooler from Campbell Oil Company Heating & Air Conditioning and a 30-minute massage from Total Massage and Skin Care.
“We are very proud of all our participants and the hard work they put into this contest,” Sholar said. “We would like to thank all the companies that assisted in sponsoring this contest. We have had such a successful outcome with this contest we are currently working on providing another weight loss contest very soon.”
