Are you tired of being overweight? Have you tried every diet fad with little or no success? Or lost weight only to gain it right back? Are you like many Americans who want more than anything to lose weight, and you're finally ready to do whatever it takes?!?!? Then stop dragging your feet and take a step in the right direction with the "Minot Weight Loss Challenge."
What is it? KMOT-TV, along with Sara Dufner, owner of SOS IMAGE, and a registered "Biggest Loser" coach, have partnered to make a "healthier Minot". Six lucky contestants will be selected out of what is expected to be hundreds of applicants. To be considered, the applicant is required to be 100 lbs over their "healthy" weight. The individuals will be required to undergo a psychological and physical evaluation by their primary care physician, to ensure they're stable enough to attempt this grueling but very satisfying process that begins in January 2014. For 14 weeks Sara Dufner and her team of specialized trainers, and a registered nutritionist, will spend time with each individual for 3-4 hours a day, working out to a regimen created specifically for each individual. The goal is to incorporate healthy habits into your busy lifestyle, "before" and /or "after" your typical work day. You will learn how to eat correctly, and will receive visits from the nutritionist in your home. During the 14 weeks KMOT-TV will be taping two minute segments that will air during the 10pm newscasts on Monday and Tuesday each week. The segments will also be archived on kmot.com. At the end of 14 weeks the contestant with the largest percentage of body weight lost will win an extreme makeover at the SOS IMAGE Salon, as well as a special prize package. Not to mention, a whole new look at life!
How do you apply? You must stop in to SOS IMAGE to fill out an application, and a health & wellness screening, between October 7th and November 31st. Once completed, you will have a personal one-on-one interview with Sara Dufner. SOS IMAGE is located in the new North Hill Marketplace Foods Plaza at 2217 16th St. NW, Minot ND 58703
How did this come about? Sara Dufner, owner of SOS Image, grew up in Minnesota, and played college basketball. She went on to play pro basketball in Europe. During the course of her training she learned a lot about health and wellness, and it's become an intricate part of her life. When she moved to Minot she saw a need for something different in health and fitness, and in August of 2013 opened "SOS IMAGE". Sarah felt, "With the stress of life and every day dealings I watch so many people grab what's easiest to eat, and be so tired they have no energy left to work out". Sara knows personally what it's like to be overweight, having had her own personal struggles. "I'm doing the Weight Loss Challenge so people can make a difference in their lives, and start influencing others in the community. Each of the six contestants will have a story of their own, and hopefully others will connect with them. She knows the challenge is going to be extremely difficult. "People will want to stop, so I'm not looking for people looking to give up. I want people that are sick and tired, of being sick and tired". Expectations are high, and you have to want to change… YOU!
