TEAM TORTURER TAKES TOP PRIZE IN DIGICEL FIT FOR LIFE CAMPAIGNTuesday 29th July 2014
Either Hunte and Laurisa Francis of Torturer’s Gym were the overall winners of Digicel’s Fit For Life campaign when it concluded on July 25.
The announcement was made at a prize giving ceremony hosted by Digicel at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium to award the contestants for their efforts.
Either was the biggest weight loser with 43 pounds while his colleague Laurisa was second overall with losing 41.2 pounds, which is equivalent to 16.4% of her body weight. Their team, Torturer’s Gym, took home the top cash prize of EC$5,000.
Ms. Francis was beaming with excitement and said she was elated to come out on top.
“I am really happy about winning as I’ve worked hard to be here today. I have seen the transformation but I wouldn’t have been able to do this without the help and support of my team mates and my family. And I must say a big shout out to Digicel for hosting this competition; it has made me the person I am today…a very healthy person and I am thankful for that.”
Beverly Danvers of J&T Fitness received a Blue Life Play smartphone for receiving 1,082 votes for winning the Facebook Viewer’s Choice Award.
Of the four teams that participated in the Fit For Life campaign, collectively they lost 268.8lbs which is admirable according to persons at the prize presentation ceremony as the before and after photos were revealed.
LTE Marketing Manager, Patrice Simon, said she was happy for all the contestants who participated and acknowledged their work ethic. “It was a pleasure to see the faces of our audience and contestants as the before and after images unveiled, they were in amazement of the transformation. That was very gratifying to me as we’ve been able to develop a program that motivates and encourage persons to get fit for mas, fit for fete and ultimately, fit for life.
“Congratulations should be extended to all the teams who participated for their hard work to lose the weight. We do hope to see an increase in teams participating next year so we will encourage everyone to continue to make this a lifestyle and not just a competition,” she said.
As a bonus prize for being the biggest losers going above and beyond, both Laurisa and Either won an all-expense paid trip to St. Kitts to watch the CPL final match and spending two nights at the Marriot Hotel.
The other teams that participated are J&T Fitness, Insane Boot Camp and Tiger Fitness.
