Westwood, NJ, April 29, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Alliance Hand and Physical Therapy held its final weigh-in date for all 130 participants of its fitness competition, the Healthy, Wealthy and Wise Challenge, April 7. In twelve weeks, the Healthy, Wealthy and Wise Challenge finished with its contestants collectively losing 836 pounds.
Participants gathered in Alliance HPT's Hackensack clinic to commemorate their achievements and find out who were the winners of the competition. For the employees’ category, Rick Norman and Colleen Fitzsimmons took the gold. Meanwhile, Paul Fiolek and Peter Cole were the winners for the non-employee category.
“Losing weight is commendable, it’s keeping it off that’s the tough job,” according to Alliance HPT. That is why they invite and encourage all participants to come and weigh in once a month to keep track and maintain their weight loss goals with the help of their sponsor and wellness team member (Alliance’s exercise physiologists).
Due to the success of this year's Healthy, Wealthy and Wise Challenge, Alliance Hand and Physical Therapy will continue on with the competition and may even hold another in the near future.
