Participants lose 238kgs
Life and Soul’s Easter Bunny Buster Challenge finished up recently with the participants being treated to an awards night on Sunday, July 26.
Twenty-eight participants from Karratha and 33 from Broome competed in the challenge, which ran for 10 weeks.
Director Cindy Kempton said the challenge is designed to kick-start people back into fitness and a healthier lifestyle after Easter.
And over the 10 weeks, a massive 236.8kgs and 1214cms was lost between Karratha and Broome.
The winner of the Karratha challenge went to Gavin Stein who lost 18.5kgs, winning himself a $1000 voucher from Cool Change.
“From a trainers point of view, it is very satisfying to see people really dedicate themselves to correct eating and consistent exercise,” Cindy said.
“There are so many that want to achieve a healthier lifestyle, lose weight or get fitter, but are not prepared to put the work in.
“The people who really achieved on the Challenge put in an enormous effort with their nutrition and training.”
Behind Gavin, was Life and Soul’s very own Peter Athanitis, who lost 14.5kgs.
Runner-up was Melissa Aldridge, losing 10kgs, followed by Lena Goimil with an 8.6kg loss, and third prize went to Trish Callaghan who lost 6.8kgs.
Cindy said the awards night was to congratulate and celebrate the achievers, participants and trainers.
“Without the participants, we would not have had such a fantastic challenge and without the trainers we would not have had such great results,” she said.
“The challenges that are held at Life and Soul are fun, rewarding and achievable.”
The Personal Trainers at Life and Soul play a huge part in all Challenges, designing the workouts, providing nutritional advice and meal plans and giving each participant constant support.
