Pioneer Memorial Hospital Completes 4th Annual Body Challenge

05/15/2017

 At the beginning of this year, Pioneer Memorial Hospital embarked on an adventure inspired by our “Community Health Needs Assessment”. The details of this assessment can be found at www.pioneermemorial.org.

The beginning of this year, we began a three month community challenge for participants to try and reduce the amount of fat percentages of their body along with other body improvements. The goal of this challenge was to inspire and motivate our community to eat healthy and exercise.

Approximately 38 community members took advantage of our contest to win prizes for the top three most successful participants.  Each challenger was given a Total Body DXA scan at the start of the competition as well as at the end of the competition.  This scan gives a very precise measurement of total body composition and muscle to fat ratios.  The beginning scan was compared with the last scan and we had some amazing results.

This year, the following cash prizes were awarded:

DXA Scan Most Fat Loss by Percentage -$150 Cash Prize

DXA Scan Most Fat Loss -$50 Cash Prize

DXA Scan Highest Muscle Gain by Percentage - $50 Cash Prize

Most Weight Loss by Percentage -$100 Cash Prize

Most Weight Loss Overall - $100 Cash Prize

Overall, our contestants lost a total of 172 pounds of fat alone for a total fat ratio percentage loss of 6.3%, so even many of those who didn’t place ended up winning by improving their health and fitness levels.

While the challenge may be officially over, we will always offer our DXA scan service.  If you would like more information, check out the Pioneer Memorial website at www.pioneermemorial.org or call 605-326-5161 Ext. 3031.
