"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," said Personnel Human Resources Manager Fred Downs when describing how his company plans to keep his employees happy and healthy. To accomplish his 'goal, Fred designed a modified version of the popular TV series "Biggest Loser" and initiated a contest to help his coworkers at the Dover Downs International Speedway get motivated. The contest began four years ago as an experiment to see if people would be interested in working together on teams to get in shape and feel better about themselves. Since then, it has become an annual event." "The results have been fantastic," said Fred. "Last year's contestants lost a total combined weight of over 1,000 pounds. This year's ASK THE TRAINER Chris Antonio contest boasts a membership of 250 people, but the results won't be known until May 23, when the contest is over." The coritest is based on a loss of body fat percentage as well as total pounds. Employees work together on teams of four, and the winners are determined based on how many pounds of body fat the group loses as a whole. They have 10 weeks to finish the con- test. Prizes are awarded to the top three teams as a way of recogniz- ing their efforts and promoting teamwork. This year I was brought on board as a consultant to help edu- cate the contestants on how to irans'form their bodies. I set up a presentation in the media room on the second floor overlooking the infamous Monster Mile. A diverse group of people showed up to listen to the techniques I use to help my clients get in shape. Mnong the topics discussed were weight training, cardiovascular training and healthy eating habits. The audience particularly liked seeing before and after pictures of the people I've trained who have made incredible transformations. The highlight of the night was introducing Jimmy Parks, one of my most recent success stories. Jimmy lost a total of 62 pounds while training with me and recu- perating from two serious back surgeries. He was able to give the audience firsthand experience on what it was like to transform his body. When Jimmy was finished speaking, I conducted a question- and-answer session. I found the number of questions people had was amazing. People were hun- gry for any knowledge that might prove useful in improving them- selves. lly hat goes off tO lred Dowrl and Dover International Speedway for taking the initiative to recognize the need to help peo- ple be the best they can possibly be while adding in the element of friendly competition and team- work. There is no doubt in my mind corporate fitness is a wave of the future and Dover Downs is already leading the pack. The bottom line is that in today's world healthcare is expen- sive. Insurance companies and employers have figured out a healthy worker is more productive and costs less to insure. I personally believe the day is coming when insurance compa- nies will go as far as penalizing those of us who refuse to stay in shape and rewarding those of us who do. Until then, it's up to us to make the choice on our own. Chri00 Antonio is' a Im00onal trainer and former world-class weightlifler.
