CONCORD, N.H. - July 14, 2015 - PRLog -- Get Fit NH’s annual six week “Sizzlin’ Summer Slimdown” (S3) challenged 159 clients to incorporate sensible nutritional habits into their daily lives while continuing with their regular training sessions at the gym. This year for the first time, coaches Dean and Nancy Carlson used a team based approach in which participants were divided into five teams each led by a Get Fit NH coach. Each team member was held accountable to and supported by their teammates. The challenge was 100% successful: every single person who completed the challenge lost weight and/or body fat and the group as a whole shed 1,332.6 pounds. In addition, many saw a decrease in symptoms such as migraines and digestive discomfort.

Get Fit NH held a reveal party at which the winners in several categories were announced. Team and individual awards were given for attendance at training, body fat lost, and weight lost. Coach Dean’s team was the overall winning team, with an average team weight loss of 10.86 pounds. Meredith Esonis of Team Nancy (Carlson) lost 13.7% of her total body weight, Jennifer Panbianco of Team Dean lost 5.9% of her total body fat. Team Dean also took home the award for best attendance at 97.22%.

Get Fit NH offers monthly Whole 9 seminars at their locations in Concord and Epsom where they teach clients basic principles of good nutrition. The S3 challenge was a way to take these concepts and actually put them into practice, or as Coach Dean Carlson put it,  “Give ourselves 30 days to get back to basic good eating. If you don’t like the way your body looks, it’s always about the food. Give your body more real food, more protein, more fiber, more vegetables, more healthy fats, and more water. Don’t focus on what you can’t have, focus on giving your body more of what it needs and you will see changes.”

Everyone who completed the Get Fit NH Sizzlin’ Summer Slimdown saw positive changes, and Coach Meagan Sbat attributed much of the success to the psychology of being a part of a team. In the Get Fit NH blog, Coach Meagan wrote, “When the pressure was on and winning or losing for a whole team could depend on you, you delivered excellence.” Get Fit NH’s take home message: if you want to lose weight, get lean, and feel great, don’t go it alone.

In 2015 Get Fit NH was voted best Boot Camp by New Hampshire Public Television; for the last 7 Years, Hippo Press voters have honored Get Fit NH as a “Best Of” in the Best Gym category, this year being voted “Best of the Best” gym in all of New Hampshire for the third year in a row. Also this year, Coach Nancy Carlson received “Best of the Best” Fitness Instructor honors for the fourth time since 2010. Get Fit NH’s success is due to their continuous drive to do what it takes to make their clients better. They offer the support of group fitness training, nutrition coaching, and challenges like this one at its locations in Concord and Epsom. Call 344-2651 today to make it happen for you.
