The ballots are in and the challenge met. Eight contestants have been chosen as finalists to compete for the title of Challenge Champ and the grand prize award in TRIMSPAÂs Million Dollar Make-Over Challenge.
In January 2005, TRIMSPA challenged men and women to take action and lose weight through an open invitation to join the Million Dollar Make-Over Challenge. Over 7,000 people were inspired to not only vie for $1 Million in cash and prizes, but to challenge a startling national statistic.
Nearly 6 out of every 10 adults in the U. S. are overweight. More alarming, this malady now ranks as the 2nd leading cause of preventable death. The U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, Vital and Health Statistics study only confirms the growing problem.
Finalists range from a variety of backgrounds, ages, and purpose for entering.
ÂJust four months ago, I was the mom that stayed away from school functions and public gatherings afraid that I would embarrass my children,Â says contest finalist Suzie Esche-Donner.
Each finalist has a unique and inspiring story to share on their struggle with weight, how they did it, and how they stayed motivated.
Finalists include: Dana West from East Falmouth, MA; Danielle Johns from Sebring, FL; Garrett Kiley from Eagle Grove, IA; Danny Piper from Westerville, OH; Sandy Chapple from Layton, UT; Suzie Esche-Donner from Fox River Grove, IL; Gary Ficken from Bennington, NE; and Richard Crean from Las Vegas, NV.
ÂI have achieved so much more than my amazing body transformation; I have achieved a new quality of life,Â shares Sandy Chapple.
Garrett Kiley, finalist in the menÂs category 18-31 adds, Âtaking care of myself and feeling good about my body are now high priority.Â
The contest will culminate this July at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in
Hollywood, FL where finalists will compete for an array of cash and prizes including: 3 Dodge Vipers, $100,000 and $32,000 annuities, makeovers and spa treatments, as well as lavish events like the tropical Welcome Party, ÂOscar - styleÂ Grand Finale Gala, and the Anna Nicole Smith Party at club Passion!
ÂToday, I stand at the top of the mountain and every perspective of my life has changed! Never in my wildest dreams did I anticipate this ride would be so enjoyable,Â shares Danny Piper.
Only one man and one woman will walk away Challenge Champ. Results will be posted after July 24th on www. trimspa. com.
