Posted in Lanesboro Health & Wellness

Coffee Street Fitness & Dance of Lanesboro, Minn. has begun its Biggest Loser Challenge as of Monday, January 7, 2013, and will continue until June 2013. The program was initiated by Melinda Coscarelli Lutes, owner of Coffee Street Fitness & Dance of Lanesboro, Minn. Beginning shortly after the New Year, the program may help contestants stick to their New Year’s resolutions. Although shedding pounds is among the top reasons for participants to join the challenge it is not the only reason that they decided to join the group or the reason Melinda started the challenge.

The Biggest Loser Challenge is a six-month challenge for members and non-members of Coffee Street Fitness & Dance but may teach the participants a lifestyle that will last a lifetime. The program not only focuses on exercise but also on nutrition and coaching.

Melinda Coscarelli Lutes has asked all participants to check in with her at least once a week to discuss the person’s progress and any questions or concerns they may have. The contestants are asked to exercise a minimum of five days a week for at least 30 minutes each time. Melinda is always available to offer her expertise in coaching and to offer any help the contestants may need.

The participants of the Biggest Loser Challenge are all using two internet applications. One is called “Groupme” and the other is “MyFitnessPal,” and these apps let the participants keep in touch with each other as well as being useful in helping each member track their exercise and food intake.

The Biggest Loser Challenge also has a point system where the participants earn points for different activities. The ways in which participants earn points is by exercising, tracking diet on a daily basis, checking in with Melinda, going to weekly meetings, and the percent of weight loss each week. Prizes are available to the group member who earns the most points each week. One .....
