The Journey 2 Lose program is a fitness competition with a focus on fat loss and overall health awareness. It is an initiative delivered through the Fitness Services team and supported by other areas of the CCSAI and the College. The first group of J2L participants began as a group of 25 together in January 2016 and have completed their final weigh-in on Friday, April 29th, 2016.
Each participant was given a support package to begin and had a plethora of support options from services within the AWC along the way. The group worked hard week in week out, had monthly meetings, weekly bootcamp classes, regular check-in opportunities with our wellness team and regular motivational posts from not just our coaches but from participants as well who were willing to share their journey.
It was an emotional, educational and overall thrilling experience for all those involved.
It is with great pleasure that I announce the first ever champion of the Athletic & Wellness Centre’s Journey 2 Lose Program.
With a total of 18.4 pounds lost and 8.4 total inches lost is Andrea Nelson
In 2nd place with 13 pounds lost is Michelle Muscatello
In 3rd place with 10.8 pounds lost is Alia Rhule
As mentioned, the 1st place winner will receive a prize of $300.00 value. Please contact us to arrange delivery of this package.
The J2L team wants to thank all of the participants for their hard work and commitment to the program. We wish you all the best on your continued journey to a happier, healthier you and look forward to seeing you all in the AWC in the future.
The Centennial Weightlifting Club was at Canadore College in North Bay this month for the annual Ontario Scholastics Weightlifting Championships. We had two members of the Club participating: Deidre-Anne Montague in the Female 75kg category and Dylan Wong in the Male 69kg category. Dylan Wong is a Centennial student currently in year 3 of the collaborative Nursing Degree at Ryerson. Deidre-Anne is a 3rd year Centennial student completing the Business Administration – Business Operations Advanced Diploma program. This annual competition is for any registered full time student in Ontario that is also a member in good standing with the Ontario Weightlifting Association. This year’s competition had a total of 58 lifters who competed individually in their respective weight classes.
Deidre-Anne finished with a 107kg (235.4lb) total. She had a tough category going up against lifters from Laurentian University, Nippissing University, and UofT Mississauga. In a controversial finish she was awarded the bronze medal, 1kg away from the silver medal. Deidre-Anne is a novice lifter who posted personal bests in competition and gained a lot of respect from spectators. Deidre was also the runner up for the Best Female Novice Lifter award.
Dylan Wong is in his 3rd year of competition at this annual event. He began 3 years ago in the 62kg category and has since moved up a weight class to the 69kg category. Dylan edged out a lifter from Laurentian University and posted a 197kg (433.4lb) total to win the Gold medal in his weight class. Dylan was the first runner up for the Best Overall Lifter Award in the competition of 58 athletes.
We want to thank everyone for their continued support of the Olympic Weightlifting program.
