A punishing extreme boot camp brought the curtains down on The Gleaner's Fit 4 Life Season One on Saturday at the Life Fit Training Centre, Red Hills Road, St Andrew.

The winners of the 12-Week Lifestyle/Fitness Challenge were also announced.

The morning kicked off with fitness instructors Juliet Cuthbert-Flynn and Marvin Gordon taking Fit 4 Lifers through the ultimate boot camp circuit, which included the tyre flip, box jump, battle rope, sled push, running with resistance band, sand bag carry and weights routine.

The ultimate challenge was being able to complete all circuits.

Cool down with dance instructor Joe Harris couldn't come soon enough, as the participants enjoyed loosening the limbs with all the latest dance moves.

But just when they thought it was over, Juliet and Marvin turned it up even more with the challenge of all challenges. The monkey bar and rope climb. And this was AFTER the WATA challenge! Wow!

It was indeed an extreme boot camp!

Sponsors WATA, Foska Oats and Blue Diamond Almond Milk were lifesavers with refreshing water and power shakes.

Winners earned prizes such as phone credit from FLOW, gift baskets from Foska Oats and Blue Diamond Almond Milk and WATA, membership to Life Fit Training Centre, Fit 4 Life water bottles and T-shirts, Active fitness band from Asafa Powell, and Gleaner-branded merchandise.

 

AMBITIOUS GOAL

 

Alteman Pryce took first place in the 12-Week Lifestyle/Fitness Challenge, having lost 21 pounds. Starting the challenge several weeks late, he had set an ambitious goal of losing 50 pounds and getting fitter. The 31-year-old is well on his way.

Pryce won for himself a one-year membership to Life Fit Training Centre, phone and credit courtesy of FLOW and Fit 4 Life gifts.

Trecia McGowan was second, having lost 15 pounds. Her goal was to lose 20 pounds and tone up. She too continues her journey to a fitter life.

McGowan took home a one-month membership to Life Fit Training Centre, Active fitness band courtesy of Asafa Powell, FLOW credit and Fit 4 Life gifts.
