The Biggest Loser Challenge ends


Fri, Jun 14th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Health & Wellness

Coffee Street Fitness & Dance began its six month Biggest Loser program back on January 7, 2013. Fresh off of New Year’s resolutions participants were eager to get started but hesitant on what their results would be when the six months were up.

The goal of the challenge was not only to lose weight but to also get healthy and fit. Each participant received a new exercise routine every week. They also managed the food they ate by paying attention to calories of protein, fat and carbohydrates in their diets.

Melinda Coscarelli Lutes, owner of Coffee Street Fitness & Dance, started the challenge for area residents and was available to the participants with any questions they had or for support when they needed it.

Now, six months later the challenge is complete. All the blood, sweat, and tears that have gone into the workouts, the dieting, the weigh-ins…is finished.

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…the Biggest Loser is…Troy Huntington of Lanesboro, Minn.! Troy lost an amazing 87 pounds during the Biggest Loser Challenge. What an accomplishment! Troy says “it was a lot of hard work but very well worth it.” Troy stated that being in the program helped him immensely while watching others in their trials and successes and knowing “you’re not in it alone” gave him the drive to lose weight.

Melinda Coscarelli Lutes was a wealth of information and support to Troy through the Biggest Loser Challenge. Troy spoke of Melinda very highly saying, “Melinda is very willing to help you. You just have to ask her, and she will find what your body needs to help you be healthier.” This is what Troy did and it seems to have worked out very well for him.

Through the Biggest Loser Challenge Troy has learned that you need to be very certain of what you are eating and what is in it. Read the labels, and better yet don’t eat anything processed. Troy would recommend the program to others who feel they could use the help in learning how to eat healthier and get fit.

Tina Mayer, of Peterson, Minn., was the second place finisher in the Biggest Loser Challenge losing an impressive 58 pounds. Tina had a real dedication to living a more healthy lifestyle and this weight loss is the result of her hard work.

Tina stated early on in the challenge that her family and friends motivated her by giving her support, not only in losing weight, but he .....
