StickerGiant Takes the Fresh Lean Challenge

Fresh Lean Champ!

Eleven StickerGiant employees recently took up the challenge to see how much weight could be lost over a ten week period. To sweeten the deal, a cash prize was offered to be the person with the highest percentage of weight loss from start to finish.

Over the course of that time, the participants collectively lost a total of 107 pounds, with four folks losing ten pounds a piece. Super cool!

So how did we do it?

"We biked, we ellipticalled, we treadmilled, we walked, we hiked, we ran, we lifted weights, and we rowed," explained Amy. "We drank more water, we watched what we ate, and we transformed our thoughts."

All-in-all, the Magnificent Eleven logged more than "900 hours of sweat and watching calories."

Mini-challenges included a 1.5 mile jog, a temptation breakfast and nutrition questions, and a grueling slate of resistance tests (wall sits, planks, lateral arm raises).

Tom took the top spot, losing a whopping 12.47% of his starting body weight. He's on his way to a total personal weight loss of 100 pounds.

Winner, Winner, (lean) Chicken Dinner!

"The challenge raised our energy, struck up some friendly competition and simply got us moving!" said Amy. "Of course I'd do it again, it ended up being a lot more fun than I thought it would".

Skirt Sports

Skirt Sports believes that "what you wear matters." Of course it does! They also hope you'll "convert to skirt" for your fitness wear. Cute and fun, right?
On her way to launching Skirt Sports in 2004, professional triathlete Nicole DeBoom won an Ironman wearing a home-sewn prototype. This skirt is the symbol of our mission – Fitness clothing with the perfect balance of Fashion, Performance and Attitude! Skirt Sports inspires women of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to transcend their perceived limits and pursue their greatest ambitions. We celebrate each woman's strength and beauty as she embraces the transformative power of fitness and has fun doing it. When you look good, you feel good and when you feel good, you perform better.

Ever since Title IX was passed into federal law in 1972, any educational program that receives federal funding requires gender equity...like sports in schools. Does that include fitness skirts? Could be. If any of you boys out there feel like converting to skirt, we say go for it! Because if it's good enough for Sir Sean Connery, it's good enough for us.
