I want to congratulate all of those who entered and all of those who finished.
An estimated 6000 people entered this years challenge, which is quite amazing, but what is sad is that over half of those individuals failed.
Failure should never be an option. There should never be an excuse for giving up or quitting.
For everyone I trained that finished, you are all amazing people, you all put in some very very hard work and took the advise I gave you and ran with it , put it to use and came out looking like you should have won the challenge.
A special shout out goes to Lisa Powers , our fitnesspoynters.com member who went through all sorts of trials and tribulations during her transformation. She never once let an injury drag her down, she fought through it, found ways to work around the pay and even sometimes through the pain. She was unstoppable.
On August 8, 2011 is when she decided she wanted to change her life with fitness.
She started on that date weighing in at 198 lbs.
Sept 16, 2011. Lisa posted this on bodybuilding.com
"Partially ruptured achilles. It's been 2.5 weeks...starting rehab. Got another 2-5 weeks until I can walk on it and another 4-6 months until I can resume real exercise. Super sad."
By October 29, 2011, she was already down to 186 lbs. Remember, always dealing with this jacked up Achilles.
December 26, 2011. Lisa entered the Optimum Nutrition / bodybuilding.com transformation challenge.
Weighing in at 174 lbs.

You have one life to live, make the most of it.
