Northwood couple loses 46 pounds, gains $4500

Hard work pays off in more ways than one in Get Fit NH's Sizzlin' Summer Slimdown
CONCORD, N.H. - June 20, 2016 - PRLog -- This spring, Get Fit NH incorporated the latest in fitness technology to enhance their annual six week "Sizzlin' Summer Slimdown" (S3).  Eighty four pairs of participants used a new smartphone app to help them consistently incorporate seven sensible nutrition habits into their daily lives and tracked their success with Fit3D, a state of the art fitness tool that takes a 360 degree full body scan and records highly accurate body measurements. While last year four teams competed against one another, this year participants paired up to hold their partner accountable and to support one another. The contest, which Get Fit NH has held each year for seven years at the start of the summer season, is strictly focused on fat loss, construed for the purpose of the contest as percentage of total inches lost. Points were awarded for consistency in following the healthy eating habits and diligence in getting Fit3D body scans at the beginning, middle and end of the challenge. As if losing pounds and inches were not enough of an incentive, the partners with the most points at the end of the six weeks would take home $2,250.00 each.

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.
