The winners of the Winter 2016 ULTIMATE YOU Challenge were recently announced. The Challenge, now in its fourth year, has enabled thousands of contestants over the years to lose weight and transform themselves by following a healthy eating and training plan.
The results of the latest challenge were, once again, impressive. The cold winter weather was clearly not a deterrent as an average weight loss of 5.6 kg per contestant was achieved. The top 50 finalists lost a combined 630 kg – an average of 12.6 kg per person. Many also reported an improved sense of well-being and confidence.
Besides individual weight loss and body fat transformation categories, many contestants sweated it out in couple and buddy teams to lose centimetres of belly fat. A dad and daughter team (pictured below) took the honours in the latter category.
For the first time, a rather interesting new category was introduced: contestants were encouraged to form teams with people they’d not met before. This resulted in scores of people forming spontaneous and virtual teams across the country.
Of course, there was no limit to innovate names which they chose themselves with some teams calling themselves “The Leans Queens”, “Wobbly bits must fall” and “Fat must fall”. The winning team, “Thin-it-to-win-it” lost an impressive average of 9.6 kg per team member.
