Who says no one keeps New Years Resolutions? After 12 weeks of determination, the 50-plus participants of Fleet Feet's first-ever “Ton of Fun” weight-loss challenge have completed the program and lost more than 260 pounds as a group.
The overall weight-loss winners, based on percentage of body weight lost, were Shawn Payment and Tracy MacKeller. The winning team included Starnell Gehl and Ashley Hoban.
“I'm so grateful for Fleet Feet, and the Ton of Fun challenge,” MacKeller said. “I am new to the area and heard about the challenge, so this was the prefect opportunity to push me to achieve my weight-loss goals and meet new people at the same time. I'm exciting for the next session of the challenge!”
Each winner received a 2-hour personalized makeover from Salon Salon in Mount Pleasant, a $125 gift card to Fleet Feet Sports and six months of free Les Mills group fitness classes at Fleet Feet.
The program is part of Fleet Feet's goal of helping Charleston County lose a ton of weight in 2014... literally. By holding the 12-week Ton of Fun Nutrition Program and Weight-Loss Challenge throughout the year, Fleet Feet hopes participants can lose 2,000 pounds cumulatively by the end of 2014.
