ABILENE -- The challenge has been met, and the winnings have been awarded to the top three winners of the Impact Sports & Fitness 2021 Weight Loss Challenge.

Winners were awarded based upon the percentage of body weight lost during the six-week program, according to a news release from Memorial Health System.  The top winners received $500, $250, and $100 respectively for first, second, and third place.

First place winner was Andrea Taylor with 11.76% weight loss. In second place was David Elliott 11.74% weight loss and in third place was Jesse Cornell with 11.53% weight loss.  Alecia Sare was the trainer for Taylor and Elliott, and Laurol Overlease was the trainer for Cornell.

“This year's challenge was very competitive, and all the participants were successful at achieving their weight loss goals,” Impact Sports and Fitness, Personal Trainer, Anita Larson said. “We would like to congratulate all who participated!”

This year’s challenge consisted of more than 50 participants assigned to teams. Each team met with a trainer every week and participants also worked out on their own. The trainers leading the teams were Anita Larson, Sare, and Overlease.
