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.
