Is your healthy New Year’s Resolution to shed a few pounds? Now you can get healthy, lose weight, vie for cash prizes and give back to us at LiveWell Colorado.

If you live in the Denver Metro Area, you can participate in the six-week 2014 Fitness & Nutrition Challenge, hosted by PorchLight Real Estate Group with Bonza Bodies Fitness Studio. Jamie Atlas, the owner of Bonza Bodies, was named the 5280 Top of the Town 2013 Reader’s Choice Personal Trainer, and he also happens to be the LiveWell Rally Man.

The challenge begins January 23 and has an affordable entry fee of $70 — discounted to $50 for those who sign up by January 15. For that, challengers get:

  • 2 weekly workouts with Bonza Bodies
  • A comprehensive nutrition plan
  • Weekly at-home workout videos and motivational newsletter
  • The chance to win some cash! The male and female challengers who lose the most fat will each win a $500 cash prize.

For your weekly workout, challengers can choose from a variety of classes including bootcamp at Red Rocks (weather permitting); group functional exercise classes at the Bonza Bodies downtown or Lakewood studios, and a yoga class in PorchLight’s beautiful 3rd floor party room at 838 Broadway in Denver.

Here’s the part we love: All proceeds from the challenge will benefit LiveWell Colorado in our efforts to reduce obesity in Colorado by promoting healthy eating and active living.

The Challenge begins with weigh-ins January 23, 24 and 25 at the PorchLight offices. For more information or to sign up for the Challenge, visit porchlightgroup.com/events or pl2014fitness.eventbrite.com or email karen.wachtel@porchlightgroup.com.

"We believe strongly in giving back to the neighborhoods and people of Denver," says PorchLight Co-Owner Amy Bayer. "By providing fun, health-oriented, and charitable events, we hope to repay the Colorado communities who have made our company what it is today."
