TakeDown Challenge

Real People. Real Results; Meet Wanda.

“I feel better.”

Three simple words.

Three words that describe what the TakeDown Challenge and now, the TakeDown Lifestyle have done for me.

When I first learned of the Challenge in early January, I thought, “Why not?  I could stand to lose a few pounds.”  Little did I know that joining the Challenge would impact my life is such a positive way.

Gone are the days of eating chips and dip regularly in the evening. Gone are the days of eating extra-buttery microwave popcorn.  Gone are the days of eating just for the sake of eating.  Does it sound like I’m denying myself?  Perhaps to some.  But I’ve learned healthy eating and regular exercise is worth it.  Why? 

I was a regular migraine sufferer, having migraines that could last four days or so.  Migraines that felt like someone was pulling on my eyeball and made me feel like doing nothing.  Since following the TakeDown Challenge, I have had one migraine.  Just one migraine in 4+ months!!  I firmly believe it’s the results of the healthier lifestyle habits I’ve developed.

Other positive results – I’m sleeping better, I have more energy, my clothes fit better and best of all, I’ve met many new friends at Encompass who encourage and support each other.

Please remember, the TakeDown Challenge isn’t a diet.  You get to enjoy so many yummy foods and snacks like smoothies, French toast, Mexican chicken soup, steak salads, Greek chicken pizza, beef jerky, and peanut butter protein balls.  I honestly don’t even crave the “junk food” anymore.

But I’m saving the best for last.  I cannot say enough about the staff at Encompass Fitness.  Through this all they have been positive, encouraging, ready to answer any questions, supportive and motivate us to be the best that we can be, even if we don’t think we can do it at times.  Brady, and staff have made me realize how my health has to be a priority, and is one that I enjoy taking care of.

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.
