Our second TakeDown Challenge has come and gone; with much success. The 'TDC', a 28-day introductory program includes menu's, recipes, and perfectly portioned meals for each participant. Since the beginning of the year, with 2 separate TakeDown Challenges, participants have lost over 450 pounds. Nutrition attributes to much of this success, and the results of our participants, as well as our winner, Kandyce Meili, speak for themselves. 

Giving birth to her son less than 5 months ago, Kandyce was ready to get back on track and make a change. As a mother of four, Kandyce signed up for the TakeDown Challenge with the long term goal of getting back to her pre-children weight, and a short term goal of losing 15 pounds. As a busy mom, Kandyce said it was time for her to do something for herself.

Over the challenge, Kandyce lost 18.1 pounds, 6 inches, and 7.5% of her overall body weight, winning her a month of personal training at Encompass Fitness and a Shaklee gift basket. Kandyce has surpassed her original goals, and has set bigger and better goals, including a future half-marathon. 

"I loved the TDC. It was so easy to follow, and the recipes and suggestions allowed me to follow the program without having to think. All I can say is, I feel great and the program just really works"

On behalf of Encompass Fitness, we would like to thank our TDC partners, Sobeys, who allowed us to label all ingredients on our menu to make them easy to find, as well as the Flat's Eatery who offered our participants a TDC approved menu - with the correct portion sizes for each individual (still available today). Having these partnerships allowed our challengers to be successful with the program, and still enjoy life.

That's what our programs are all about - Balanced Habits.
