Eight weeks ago there were 10 lovely ladies chosen to be part of The Ultimate Zumba Challenge.
Eight weeks ago these 10 lovely ladies weighed 80kg more (as a group of course!) than they do today!
The 10 of them have worked hard for the past two months – working out to the Zumba Fitness Exhilarate DVDs and dutifully recording their progress in the Zumba Challenge diaries.
You can check out their before and after photos to see how far they’ve all come.
It sounds cliche but it is true … they are all winners. They’ve all made significant changes in their lives. They’ve all lost weight and gained confidence and self-esteem. Their enthusiasm has rubbed off onto friends and family members – one challenger’s partner has also lost 15kg!
But only one of the challengers is taking home the $5000.
Here are a few words from The Ultimate Zumba Challenge judging panel …
“We’ve been watching you all over the last 8 weeks and – wow – we are so impressed with the positive changes you have made to your lives.
Selecting a winner was such a difficult process – not only did most of you lose weight and wipe centimetres off your hips, we’ve also been super impressed with other posts we’ve been reading too …stories about having more energy, improvements in mood and attitude, exercising with your family and friends and sharing healthy snack ideas.
After reviewing the progress of each competitor, we have chosen a winner. Please see the video message from Gina Grant, who appears in the Exhilarate DVD Collection for the winner!
We were impressed not only with the winner’s weight loss but also with her ability to influence her children and friends and also her level of support to other competitors on the forum.
But you should all consider yourselves winners in this competition. When you make a big change like this it can be very confronting and it takes a lot of stamina to push through.
But the biggest hurdle is over! You’ve done it! You have started on a new and very positive path and you are establishing healthy habits that we hope you are going to change your life and your family’s lifestyle for the better – forever!
We encourage you to continue using the Zumba Fitness Exhilarate DVD Collection and even head to zumba.com and find a live class near you.
Merry Christmas to you all and wishing you a healthy and happy New Year!!”
