Get Fit Challenge 2011

Congratulations to all of our contestants! Sixteen women entered this year's Get Fit Challenge. It was a 10-week contest with points earned for class attendance, earning class MVP, improvement in the Fitness Assessments, and losing body fat.

We held our "Grand Finale" last week at CORP. The women had their "after" body fat tested and competed in the Fitness Assessments (plank, pushups, step-ups). The points were then added to all the points they earned for attending class and being MVP. I'm happy to report that it took success in every aspect of the contest in order to win -- so it was anyone's game, if you had the commitment to stick with it!

Our Grand Prize, a $250 gift card to Ala Moana shopping center,
was awarded to ...

Amber Brannon

In addition to losing body fat and improving in the Fitness Assessments, Amber attended 54 classes during the contest (out of a possible 57). Wow!

A close second was awarded to Jessica Scott. She wins a $100 gift certificate to Lululemon. Jessica was also an attendance stalwart with 47 classes attended during the GFC.

Third place went to Melissa Fitzgerald. She also won top honors for the step-up and push-up assessments. She wins free membership to Stroller Strides in January.

Fourth place to Melanie Kushi, also a Fitness Assessment winner as she held the plank for 6 minutes and 45 seconds! She wins an SS or Body Back tank.

And fifth place to Katie Coulter. She also wins an SS/BB tank.

Congratulations to everyone who competed and made it to the end! Ten weeks was a bit on the long side, and we held the contest during the holidays to boot. I'm so proud of how everyone lost body fat and got stronger. It's nice to see hard numbers and know that you have made a difference in your own health and physical fitness!
