Clark Wins the Orange Planet Weight Loss Challenge

Des Moines, IA, January 02, 2010 --( The Orange Planet Athletic Club hosted a weight loss challenge from mid November to December 23, 2009. The challenge was given to their members to lose weight by participating in five group fitness classes per week. There were a variety of classes through out the week to participate in, which kept the members motivated and interested. The rules were strict but Cristen Clark came out on top.

As a former college athlete, she hit the ground running taking the challenge very seriously. “I was committed to losing weight and this challenge helped me do just that,” said Cristen. Clark lost 13 lbs in seven weeks and won a nice cash prize, but mostly gained confidence going after her goal.

She has lost a total of 35 lbs since joining The Orange Planet in March. Cristen brings her child to the club each day utilizing the free childcare that is provided with her family membership.

Ten members participated in the weight loss challenge.
