In Search of Arvada & Westminster’s Biggest Losers

Here's something fun and healthful happening at Capabilities.

In Search of Arvada & Westminster’s Biggest Losers: Join Kathy Davis, RN, Chris Welch, RN, Cliff Russell, and their assistants as they hold another of their 12-week non-profit course that offers tips on nutrition and exercise, paired with some competition.

This local group of personal Health Coaches considers the course a chance to fight obesity by educating people about a better overall lifestyle. “Our goal is for people to feel good and look great. The course will give us accountability. Together, we can pull through on this.”
Course participants can use any weight-loss program they’d like, whether it is Jenny Craig, the South Beach Diet, Weight Watchers or a customized plan.” We’ll work with each person to find what works best for them.” They will also sell herbal weight-loss products. Davis & Welch, both nurses, have over 10 years of experience in the Weight Loss Industry.

Participants will weigh-in each week, and the three people with the highest percentage of pounds lost at the end of the course will win prize money. The Health Coaches are shooting for 15 students per class, which would allow for a $250 first-place prize, $150 second-place prize and $75 third-place prize.

For every pound a participant sheds, he or she will receive a raffle ticket for chances to win recipe books, workout handbooks and healthy snacks.

The group will charge a participant $1 for each pound gained during the course, and $5 for if a participant misses two or more class sessions. This money will be given to the person who loses the most inches at the end of the 12 week session.

“A fun competition like this is a good motivator.” Davis said. “Soon participants are feeling better and they’ve just got more energy.”

The competition runs from March 11 – May 27 at each Tuesday at 12:45 – 2:00 p.m.

The cost for the 12-week course is $29. All the money will go into the pot for the prize money. Please contact 303-421-5643 for registration.
