The second offering of Trans-Canada Fitness’s Ultimate Loser competition helped dozens of participants get healthy and shed weight

The second offering of Trans-Canada Fitness’s Ultimate Loser competition helped dozens of participants get healthy and shed weight – all for a good cause. Cooper’s Foods matched donations of $1 per pound lost to the contest, and also donated $1 per pound lost to the Revelstoke Food Bank. JR Powell came in first with the biggest percentage of body weight lost over the 13-week program, totalling 45 pounds. “[Trans-Canada Fitness’s Neil Jones] goes above and beyond to help you,” Powell told the Times Review. “It’s a new lease on life; a world of difference for everybody,” he said of the group. Jones said he’ll be offering the three-month program once again in February, but that’s it for the year. Pictured here from left: Trans-Canada Fitness’s Neil Jones, co-organizer Tanya Secord, Joe Mele of Cooper’s Foods Revelstoke, JR Powell (1st with 45 pound loss), Teresa Flick (2nd with 24 pounds lost) and Joanne Short (3rd with 19 pounds lost).
