The YMCA of Clay County recently wrapped up its eight-week Biggest Loser Buddy Challenge.

The challenge was based on a points system and points were awarded for pounds lost, body fat percentage loss, participation in YMCA fitness classes as well as completing both strength training and cardiovascular exercises on the same day.

The YMCA had a large amount of interest in the program, with more than 25 teams participating.

French Funeral Home and St. Vincent Clay Hospital sponsored the challenge, with French Funeral Home providing all prizes and St. Vincent Clay Hospital offering several nutrition classes to the program participants.

Ryan Mishler and Jennifer Swaim were the winners this year, as the two combined to lose a total of 63 pounds for a total of 229 points.

Coming in second was Amanda and Shelly Brown, who lost a combined 38 pounds for 151 points while the third-place team of Tony and Heidi Spugnardi lost a total of 36 pounds for a total of 122 points.
