Dare to Lose: Participating Radio Personalities
Here is a quick look at the radio personalities that will lead the two teams of listeners that will be chosen to participate in Dare to Lose. Each of them have their own unique reasons for participating and are committed to getting back in great shape themselves. Can you relate with any of their personal stories?
Beano from 99.9 The Point
I’m the afternoon guy on 99.9 The Point. I have a beautiful wife, a wonderful two-year-old daughter, and two corgis. I love music, I’m into a lot of very ‘geeky’ things and I enjoy keeping my fitness levels up as best I can. I want to be around to watch my little girl grow up and I want to be comfortable doing it. I’ve been working out at Miramont for a long time. A few years back, Matt Yacca, one of their trainers, had me in the best shape of my life and helped me turn my life around. I had ballooned up over 240 pounds and he had me down to 190 in a just a few months. I’ve been well overweight, and I know how much work it is to lose that weight and I want to help my team reach their goals, not just for the contest, but for life.
Drew from from TRI 102.5
Hi there! My name’s Drew and I do the afternoon show on TRI-102.5. It’s my dream job, on a dream station! I’ve been married to my beautiful wife for about a year now. We have a little dog that I couldn’t love more if I tried, and we’re hoping to have kids in the near future. A year ago, I weighed 230 pounds. After completing last year’s “Dare to Lose” competition (just in time for the wedding), I was rockin’ 190. I never thought fitness could have such an incredible effect on my life. Listen, I know firsthand what a challenge it is to get into shape; but I can also tell you it’s completely worth it, both in the short term and the long term. And once you take that first step, you’ll be amazed how quickly you see results (I know I was)! So let’s change some lives, shall we?
