Biggest loser will be winner


A NEW initiative to find ‘Stockport’s Biggest Loser’ has been launched in partnershi­p with staff at Stepping Hill Hospital.

Life Leisure challenged 10 teams of five employees in February to collective­ly lose the most weight over 12 weeks.

They were given free access to an online coaching programme written by former GMTV health and wellness expert Pete Cohen, and assessed using advanced Boditrax technology.

It is hoped the scheme will help corporate companies ‘hit their health and wellbeing targets’ when it is rolled out to the business community.

Andy Gill, from Life Leisure said: “Stockport’s Biggest Loser is a simple and fun campaign to promote healthy lifestyles within companies in and around the borough.”

The winning team will be awarded a compliment­ary health club membership for six months at one of Life Leisure’s facilities.
