Dare to Lose: Participating Radio Personalities
Here is a quick look at the radio personalities that will lead the three 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
Hey guys it’s Beano, the afternoon guy on 99.9 The Point. I’ve been working out at Miramont for a long time, just a year or two ago, Matt Yacca, one of their trainers, had me in the best shape of my life. Since then, my wife and I had our first baby and I subsequently let a lot of my workout and eating habits take a nose-dive. (Let’s just say I gained a little “baby-weight.”)
I miss being in great shape, and I want to make sure I am healthy enough to stick around and happily watch my little girl grow up. Ideally I’d like to shed my body fat percentage back down to a healthy level, and get back to where I can fit in my large t-shirts without hanging my head in shame.
Butch from 94.3 Loudwire
Hey everyone it’s Butch, the afternoon guy on 94.3 Loudwire. There are a few reasons I wanted to participate in Dare to Lose. First, I miss feeling confident walking around the pool without a shirt. There was a time I looked forward to taking it off, now I dread it. Second, my future. I feel fitness and good nutrition are key to long life. With two kids, I want to be a part of not only grand kids, but also great-grand kids. Finally, I like a challenge. To think about going to the gym and stopping my fast-food eating habits seems rather herd at the moment. But once you put your head to it and do it, it makes the results all the more sweeter.
Drew from from TRI 102.5
Hey there Iit’s Drew, the afternoon guy on TRI-102.5. In March of 2012, I asked the love of my life to marry me. She said yes, and we’re getting married in just a few short months! In the midst of all the wedding planning, she went on a diet. One day, I stepped on her scale, just out of curiosity. I was shocked by how overweight I had become without really realizing it. Now, I’m committed to getting fit and staying that way. Back in college, I was in pretty good shape (I actually lost five pounds my first semester, rather than gaining the infamous “Freshman 15”); so I’d like to at least get back to that point, if I can.
Obviously, it would be nice to drop a few tuxedo sizes before the wedding too, but it goes beyond that. I’m right on the cusp of starting a family of my own, and I don’t want any health issues from being unfit to get in the way of that. I’ve heard numerous Miramont success stories over the years, and I can’t wait to be one of them. Bring it on!
