As previously mentioned in this space, RACO Industries has a proud legacy of looking after its employees as well as customers and vendors. This year, RACO has shown another example of this in offering the Weigh to Go Challenge, a 12-week journey for workers to successfully lose weight and create a healthier lifestyle. 39 employees participated in the program organized by TriHealth Corporate Health Services and compete as individuals and as teams to shed the most pounds through dietary changes and regular physical activity.
After 12 long weeks of dedicated exercise and weight loss efforts, we would like to give kudos to our participants for their efforts. The total weight loss was over 334 pounds and we trimmed 79 inches off of our collective midsection! The average percentage of weight loss per team was 4.17% and 237 weekly exercise logs completed and turned in for at least 14,220 minutes exercised. Those are impressive numbers for the group that have reaped impressive rewards for the individuals who participated.
"I exercise more regularly and have gotten my high cholesterol down considerably," said overall Weigh To Go Challenge winner Marilyn Taylor (pictured right). "My blood pressure is near perfect. I have much more energy and that makes me happier at work and home."
Due to popular demand, the program will continue so don't be surprised if we sound a little thinner the next time you call 1-800-446-1991.
