Fall 2016 Weight Loss Challenge Team Winners (Slim Possible) Testimonial

Being able to work at a place that values our mental, spiritual and physical well-being is very important to all three of us. We are so fortunate to be able to work together at Regis. This year, my mom finally committed to changing her lifestyle and focusing on making healthy nutrition choices as well as ramping up her workout regime. After months of this, she inspired my sister and I to also start making healthier choices like bringing veggies to snack on during the day and planning what we were going to make for dinner ahead of time so that we didn’t get stuck grabbing "quick fixes" that weren’t healthy. We also began working out together during our lunch time at the Regis Fitness Center or at one of the many gyms offered on our monthly Class Pass membership. When the Wellness Program announced they were hosting a weight loss challenge for the faculty and staff, we were so excited to sign up. All three of us have different fitness goals, but we knew we would be able to encourage each other through this challenge to do our best (and hopefully each lose a little weight). The challenge was the perfect length - just long enough to see results and stay encouraged. The emails that came along a few times a week helped us stay motivated and gave us ideas for workouts or meals to help us switch it up and not get bored. With the encouragement of the Wellness Program staff and each other we were able to beat the small goals we had set for ourselves and really make a change in our bodies during this challenge. We are so grateful for this challenge and can't wait to continue encouraging each other on our fitness journeys.

Fall 2016 Wellness Program Winner Testimonial

I was entered to win a pair of Bronco tickets for participating in three Regis Wellness Program Events, and I won! I took my son to his first Bronco game, and we had an amazing time. The seats were awesome, the weather was great (for January) and we loaded up on junk food. What a fun game to go to and a special day with my little guy! Also - the Broncos beat the Raiders. :)

Fall 2016 Wellness Program Winner Testimonial

New Year’s Day 2017. Over 20 pounds lost, a new Broncos scarf wrapped around my neck, an awesome stadium blanket to keep me warm, and two FREE tickets to the Broncos vs. Raiders game. Sounds like a pretty great start to the New Year, right? All because I decided to kick-start my healthy new year by participating in the Faculty and Staff Wellness Program. All I had to do was take steps to improve my health! I had a biometric screening, participated in the Weight Loss Challenge, and finally got my flu shot. Small price to pay for a chance for free Broncos tickets!

I received the email that my name was pulled for the tickets. MY NAME! I screamed, I jumped for joy, and once I was at the game, I downed a whole piece of pizza in celebration of my hard work and success.

Plus, by getting a kick-start for changing my health, while surrounded by a solid support team and accountability, I am still making healthy decisions in creating a much healthier lifestyle for lasting change. The Fitness Center at Regis always has programs, contests, and great opportunities available if people need help in sticking to your goals – TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEM! I promise you won’t regret it. Plus, you might get free tickets to watch your home team.

Blessings and cura personalis,
