Hard work pays off in more ways than one in Get Fit NH's Sizzlin' Summer Slimdown
By: Get Fit NH
The contest began on May 1 and on June 18 Get Fit NH held a reveal party at which the winning partners and total results were announced. The results were impressive. Combined, the 168 participants lost a total of 1309.6 pounds, 263.96 inches was lost from waists, and 150.08 inches off hips. The average participant lost 7.8 pounds and 1.6 inches off their waist and .9 inches off their hips during the six weeks of S3. But the winning team was far from average.
Kellen and Carolyn Sawyer of Northwood lost a combined 46 pounds, 9.81 waist inches, and 6.96 hip inches. As Dean and Nancy Carlson presented the Sawyers with their winnings, Coach Nancy exclaimed, "Hard work pays off in more ways than one!" The Get Fit NH community erupted with enthusiastic congratulations for the duo, but Kellen was quick to credit his coaches. "No way we could have done it without the help from Coach Nancy. I know I pestered her with lots of questions. Thanks also to Coach Dean for his encouragement. We still have a long way to go to our ultimate goals, but this was a great way to start the process."
The S3 challenge was, as Coach Dean Carlson put it, "an opportunity to 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."
S3 proves that year after year.
Get Fit NH is offering a 'second chance' at S3 for those who want to see this kind of success for themselves. Clients as well as non clients have until June 22 to sign up.
