If you’ve listened to morning show host Matt Morris on CKAY radio in the last few weeks, you’ll have heard him talking about his experiences in the 2009 Fitness Challenge Bootcamp with radio show listeners Andrea Kobus and Randy Goodridge.
After an intense six week test of stamina, strength and tenacity, the victor has been determined in the Challenge Bootcamp presented by The Garage Private Personal Training Studio and CKAY Radio. The contestants, Andrea Kobus and Randy Goodridge, secured their spots in February by calling CKAY during the morning show, and then having their names drawn to workout with Matt at the Garage three times a week for a six week period that ended on Friday, March 13.
Both contestants were weighed and measured and tested on strength and endurance at the start of the competition and again on the final day. During their 6-weeks of training, Andrea, Randy and Matt, were put through the paces by BCRPA Certified Personal Trainer Verna Chan with agility, strength, core and cardio drills. Friday the 13th turned out to be lucky for Randy Goodridge who “inched” out his competitor by showing the greatest overall improvement to secure first place. In addition to making major gains in his fitness level, Randy jogs away with a Secret Soak Package from The Rockwater Resort, a natural fibre hoody from Windsong Gallery in Sechelt, a $100 gift certificate from Romantique in Lower Gibsons, and 4 hours of housekeeping services from Blissful Homecare in Gibsons. Runner-up, Andrea Kobus, who also showed considerable fitness improvements, recieves a $50 gift certificate from Pack Ratt Louie’s Grill in Gibsons.
Indoor and outdoor bootcamps continue at the Garage with a new six-week challenge which began on March 16th and another starting in April – call the Garage at 604-886-3114 for more information.
