Congratulations to Leslie Taylor-Montecinos, this year’s Grand Prize winner with an impressive weight loss of 28 pounds (13% of her body weight)!  And kudos to Peter Larney (2nd Prize winner) and Angela James (3rd Prize winner) for their dedication and excellent results.

Our 11 week program, which ran from April 15 to June 30, challenged members to feel their best, move their best, and have their best summer ever! Participants committed to a personal training program, led by Fitness & Health Centres staff, that helped them live a healthier, more balanced lifestyle, gain strength, reduce body fat, decrease stress, and improve their overall well-being.

Here’s what Grand Prize winner Leslie Taylor-Montecinos had to say about the challenge:

“Participating in the Summer Shape-Up challenge gave me the motivation and accountability I needed to work towards my weight loss and health goals. I had an amazing support team both in and out of the gym. My Town of Ajax trainer, Zain Yousaf, was always willing and able to give a new idea for that extra push when needed. I am looking forward to continuing my weight loss and health journey.”

Although the weight changes experienced by participants are the tangible successes, the main objective of the Summer Shape-Up is to provide a supportive base to set personal goals and feel your best.  If you’re inspired by this year’s successes and results, join the challenge next year!  Registration begins March 1, 2020.
