GOLDEN, CO--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - In the 911 Ultimate Transformation Challenge (www.911utc.com), sponsored by iSatori, Inc. (OTCBB: IFIT) (OTCQB: IFIT) (www.isatori.com) and Bodybuilding.com, law enforcement and public safety officers across the country competed against each other and lost 257 total pounds of ugly bodyfat while gaining strength and sculpting leaner, healthier bodies and gaining more energy -- in just 12 weeks.
In return, Stephen Adele, Chief Executive Officer of iSatori, donated one dollar for each pound of bodyfat lost and muscle gained to their charity of choice, which was the American Lung Association, on behalf of those transformation contestants who completed their challenge. iSatori and Bodybuilding.com also awarded the male and female winners in the competition $2,500 in cash and an endorsement contract, a one-year supply of iSatori supplements, and a custom iSatori track suit. Plus, their stories inspired thousands by showing it is possible to make visible improvements in only 12 weeks.
The Grand Champions were paramedic Alecia Clark of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Officer Jeremiah Gilkey with the Guymon, Oklahoma, Police Department.
Jeremiah, who entered the contest weighing 255 pounds with 25% bodyfat, was able to lose 40 pounds and reduce his bodyfat to approximately 13%. "I saw the 911 Civil Servant Challenge as the motivation I needed to get back in shape," said Jeremiah. "After several weeks of good dieting and lots of cardio and high-rep weight training, the weight was dropping. Sticking with the diet and workout program was very difficult with our department working 12-hour shifts and my being on the nightshift! My wife was a strong motivator, along with seeing the results in the mirror and feeling so much better about myself inside and out. I feel great and plan to continue to lift weights and eat healthy for good!"
Alecia lost several inches around her waist, hips, and thighs. More importantly, she noticed major muscle gains in her arms, chest, and back. "I'm so excited that for the first time ever, I can truly say I accomplished something that will change my life forever," Alecia exclaimed. "I started with the hope of 'getting back into fitness,' and I've done so much more than that. I used the iSatori Eat-Smart® Chocolate-Chocolate Chip shake as a replacement for one meal a couple times a week. It's delicious, and the tiny chocolate chips were little delicious surprises! My favorite thing, though, was the iSatori RestorAid™. It's delicious, and I could definitely tell a difference in decreased soreness when I would drink it. Plus, it tastes like Cool-Aid, so it also helped reduce my cravings for sweets! My diet habits are forever changed. I learned to really enjoy super-lean foods and now actually crave them. I learned how to work out to benefit my body, and the free-weight section of the gym no longer intimidates me."
"We didn't think choosing a winner could be so difficult," shared one of iSatori's 911 UTC Coordinators, Dana Taylor. "We took our time reviewing each story, looking through all the photos, and were inspired by every single competitor's passion and commitment to the Challenge."
Adele added, "It's a great privilege to work with and help our civil servants become stronger and healthier. Because they serve as role models to their coworkers, friends, family, and communities, it's important for them to stay physically fit and mentally strong. I respect each of them, dearly, for their commitment to improving their health and physical fitness."
