Queens’ Biggest Losers Contest

A Healthy Inspiration For Us All
Here at The Queens Courier, we believe in a happy, healthy lifestyle and we want to help our readers achieve that lifestyle through hard work, healthy eating and exercise.
For this reason, we are holding the 2nd Annual Queens Biggest Losers Contest. For the next 12 weeks, we will follow the contestants who have committed to create a healthy lifestyle for themselves.
At the kick-off ceremony, held at Bally Total Fitness in Kew Gardens, the contest entrants were weighed in for the first time and participated in a Biggest Losers Step Aerobics Class with seasoned physical trainer Charlie Ruiz Camacho.
“The contestants did a fabulous job today,” said Camacho. “You really need to take care of yourself through exercise and a healthy diet to really enjoy your life and these people really seem committed to leading longer, happier lives.”
The competitors will be working with certified trainers from Bally Total Fitness, the Fitness Consultant and the Bay Club Fitness Center and will be seen by licensed nutritionists at Nutri Source Inc. and at New York Hospital Queens Medical Center.
We will be following the progress and workout regimen of each participant every week and at the end of the 12-week period, the person who loses the highest percentage of body weight will win the grand prize. Every participant will come out a winner in the end with respect to their physical wellbeing.
We wish everyone the best of luck.
