Here’s something you already know: Losing weight is really, really hard to do.
Here’s something you may not know: It’s entirely possible to drop pounds, inches, and body fat if you possess the right combination of perseverance, willpower, self-belief, and determination.
And having a highly qualified team of trainers providing you with support and encouragement along the way doesn’t hurt either.
In January, over 400 people signed up for the “I Lost It At The Club” weight-loss competition. This group, which included both Midtown staff and members, participated in a three-month-long contest to see who could achieve the greatest success in the following categories:
Highest Total Percentage of Weight Loss
Greatest Percentage of Body-Fat Loss
Greatest Number of Inches Lost
Midtown trainers weighed each participant once a week, and provided those competing with nutrition seminars and weight-loss tips.
The tough job of actually losing the pounds, inches, and body fat, however, was left up to the participants. They exercised at the club. They ate healthfully. They resisted the temptations to have seconds, to skip a workout, to hit the couch instead of the StairMaster.
At the end of the three-month-long competition, the elite members of this group received their payoff. The winners of the “I Lost It At The Club” competition received some great prizes, including private tennis lessons with Ajay, personal training sessions, a catered, healthy dinner for four from the Cafe, and a spa prize package.
Some of the winners participated in a photo shoot for an upcoming issue of Spirit Magazine, wearing new clothes from L’Avant Garbe.
But the best prize of all?
The knowledge that hard work pays off, and as a result, their new bodies are stronger, fitter, and healthier for it.
Congratulations to all of those who lost weight, inches, and body fat through this competition!
Here are the winners in each category:
Highest Total Percentage of Weight Loss: Kevin Monaghan
Greatest Percentage of Body-Fat Loss: Marie VanGraafeiland
Greatest Number of Inches Lost: Gerry Stryker
