Holiday Fitness Challenge Winners

The Employee Wellness Program Holiday Fitness Challenge winners are (L to R) Kathy Reel, Teresa Calloway, and Irina Alekseyeva-Logsdon.

The Employee Wellness Program at Southwest issued a four- week Holiday Fitness Challenge recently from mid-November through early-December. Participants were challenged to watch their portions and selections during Thanksgiving dinners and to carefully choose hors d'oeuvres at Southwest’s Annual Holiday Open House.

The individuals who lost the highest percentage of their body weight were pronounced winners.

“People who weigh more, lose weight faster," said Cheryl Green, instructor of Health and Physical Education/Employee Wellness coordinator. “To give everyone a fair chance, we looked at the percentage of body weight loss," she stated.

The Holiday Fitness Challenge Winners:

  • First Place - Irina Y. Alekseyeva-Logsdon, Technical Clerk, Honors Academy
  • Second Place - Teresa L.Calloway, Website Content Coordinator
  • Third Place - Kathy M. Reel, Administrative Secretary, Public Safety

Be on the lookout for individual photos and profiles of the winners in the next three editions of the Southwest Scoop.
