Another 12 week weight loss challenge is in the books!
And it seems like we can’t start these anymore without the gym and our participants being restricted in some way…
But like I said in The Biggest Winner 16 recap, we control what we can control and we Never Miss a Challenge!
Yes, life is hard with adversity and setbacks around every corner…
But each person holds so much power and possibility within themselves. And this power and possibility is held back by fears, beliefs, assumptions, and bad habits.
And it is our role as coaches to give you that nudge, that piece of advice, the direction and support to help you make great things happen.
And yes, this can even happen amidst our current setting because bad news, social distancing, and covid-19 can’t stop you when you surround yourself with people that make you better and reinforce that it’s not what you do but who you are. Learning and teaching is a way of life and if we can keep striving forward together we will all be the better…
I appreciate all of you that persevered these past 3 months. 12 weeks that took you through halloween, the Christmas season, new years and many gym restrictions – a time when most would gain weight and were gaining weight…
But not you. In spite of this, 59 individuals accepted the Biggest Winner Challenge and committed themselves to levelling up and building habits to live a sustainable lifestyle while moving the needle in their health and fitness.
I’m pleased to share their results below:
- Total weight lost: 606.5lbs
- Average weight lost: 10.3lbs/person
- Average % of initial weight lost/person: 5.2%
As with previous Biggest Winner challenges, the male and female that lost the biggest % of their initial weight were awarded the title of the Biggest Winner and earned a $500 reward for their efforts.
And in our 17th Biggest Winner, I am pleased to announce that our Biggest Winners are John and Barb!
And here’s a few other individuals who weight loss efforts deserve recognition
David’s performance was so impressive that he narrowly missed out on 1st place by .14%
I wanted to finish this post off with a couple of quotes:
- The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. – William Arthur Ward
- Good coaching must be slow enough so that it’s not confusing, and fast enough so it’s not boring. – Sidney J. Harris
- A teachers task is to initiate the learning process and then get out of the way. – John Warren
How do these apply to you in the gym or with your nutrition? If anything comes to mind how we can further aid you in your pursuit? Please let us know.
Committed to your success,
Josh Saunders, BS, CSCS
P.s. The Biggest Winner will be back in March 5, 2021.
