Fit & Lean in 2013
At the beginning of 2013, 110 faculty and staff members decided to uphold their resolutions and participate in AhealthyU’s challenge to lose weight and improve fitness.
Teams of four worked together to reach a healthy weight, as well as improve their muscular strength and endurance, cardiovascular fitness, and flexibility. Cash prizes were awarded to the three teams who achieved the highest percentage of improvement during the course of the eight-week program. Weight Warriors, made up of Amaate Neil, Michael Harris, Christopher Salone, and Joanne Yecies, achieved a fitness improvement of 475.65 percent and took home the $400 first-place check.
An impressive 75 percent of Fit & Lean participants achieved greater than 10 percent improvement in overall fitness during the course of the challenge. An honorable mention goes out to Fit & Lean superstars Timothy Staples, who lost 19.4 pounds, and Mark Schaeffer, who lost 15 pounds during the challenge. Congratulations to all participants!
