FRI 11.20.15 Congrats CFM Lurong Challenge Winners!

CFM Lurong Championship Challenge Results

Congrats to everyone who completed our first Lurong Challenge. We announced the winners this week at the gym. Here are the results:
1st Place Overall- Hope Hunt
2nd Place Overall- Michael Aaron
3rd Place Overall- Sarah McColley
Most Improved Female- Christina De Giulio
Most Improved Male- Kevin Moylan
Best Diet- Hope Hunt

Awesome job everyone!

"Awesome job everyone!"


Congratulations to all of our Lurong participants for completing the challenge! Thanks to our sponsors for donating prizes throughout the challenge and for the CFM winners: Reebox, FitAid, Hylete, and Lurong Living. Participants who successfully completed the challenge receive a commemorative T-shirt, "Test your limits, then break them" and the top winners receive prize apparel from Hylete. Special shout out to Kevin Moylan and Christina De Giulio who were our male and female "most improved." They showed the greatest change on both the workouts and their weight/measurements. Another shout out to Hope Hunt who also had awesome improvement across the board and the highest overall score (Diet, Workout Performance, and Improvement)!

These 7 weeks tested our discipline and commitment and we emerged with some awesome results:

Measurements
The average person lost 5 1/4 inches over 7 body measurements. The waist was the number 1 area for losses- hips were number 2. The average person saw 5% of their waistline disappear which is more than 1 1/8 inches per person.

Weight Loss
The average person lost more than 6 1/4 lbs. As a whole CFMers lost over 100 lbs and that's all excess body fat (How do we know that isn't muscle loss? See Performance Gains). 100% of people lost weight.

Performance Gains
The average person improved their performance and work capacity by more than 15% measured in the 23 minute Champion Test Benchmark. In the Olympian Workout, participants improved their strength and ability to move large loads quickly by more than 4%. These improvements shatter the fallacy that eating "strict or clean" results in performance loss. Said differently, you don't have to sacrifice performance when eating right or losing weight.

At the end of every Challenge we like to take a minute to reflect on what we have accomplished. Our goal is to gain strength from our achievements in order to give us direction and drive for the next Challenge. That the end of the Challenge is just the next step in our journey. Now that we are riding high from our success from the Championship Challenge, we can carry that momentum into the new year and setting goals for 2016! Great job everyone!
