Schell Brothers’ biggest loser sets multiple records

July 2, 2022

Each year, Schell Brothers offers employees a chance to get in great shape while competing in a friendly environment against co-workers, and it’s called the Schell Brothers’ Biggest Loser. This year’s contest was one for the record books. We had the largest group ever with 120 participants from three different states – Delaware, Tennessee and Virginia – and for the first time ever, we added a division for spouses. The records didn’t stop there, because the results were truly amazing.

Schell Brothers’ Biggest Loser is a contest that encourages employees to take control of their health by competing against each other to see who can get in the best shape. There are two major divisions – the largest body fat loss division and the before-and-after picture contest. For the largest body fat loss division, employees are tested in our bod pod, a state-of-the-art body fat assessment machine. The top two employees that lose the largest percentage of body fat have the chance to win $500 and $200 monthly for the next year as long as they stay within 2% of their final body fat. This means the first-place winner has the potential to win $6,000 and the second placer $2,400. If they fall off, they forfeit their placing and the next person in line gets a chance at the money.

This year’s winner was Tyler Brock with an incredible 79.1% loss. Not only did he drop from the excess body fat to the ultra-lean category, but also he was absolutely shredded when he finished the program, as he dropped his body fat from 22% to 4.6%. This is a new Antonio’s Training record and the largest body fat reduction we have seen in more than 6,000 body composition tests. The second-place winner was Rob Alexander, dropping from 25.3% body fat to a very lean 15.3%.

The before-and-after picture division was also very competitive. There were so many impressive transformations that it was very hard to pick the winners, but the top three were exceptional. Garnering first place was Rob Alexander, who proved age is just a number, edging out most of the younger contestants and getting ripped at the age of 61. Landing the second spot was Jack Tucker, who dramatically changed his appearance and health. Locking in the third-place spot was Tyler Brock with an unprecedented 4.5% body fat and lots of chiseled muscle.

This year’s spouse division was by far the most competitive part of the contest. In the end, it was a shootout between three amazing young ladies. Although it was super close, the results were clear. The winner of $3,500 and the first-place title was Jessica Tice with an amazing 44.9% loss in body fat. Coming in at razor-thin second place and netting $1,000 was Mary Kate Horner with a 43.3% loss. Finishing third with a loss of 38.8% and a very impressive transformation was Angel Brock, who received a prize of $500.

All participants had the option of working out on their own or hiring Antonio’s Personal Training Systems to guide them through the process. This year, 37 employees decided to train with us, and collectively, they achieved some of the best results we have ever seen. We had 11 employees receive full reimbursement by Schell Brothers for the cost of training with us for losing 25% of their starting body fat. Eight more received half reimbursement for losing 17%, and seven employees received a one-time $1,000 bonus for losing an amazing 30% of their starting body fat. In addition, we had five people lose 35 to 40 pounds, and multiple people competed in the contest from hundreds of miles away by working with our trainers virtually on FaceTime.

In conclusion, I’d like to congratulate all the participants on an incredible job this year. Also a special thanks to Schell Brothers for offering such an amazing opportunity to employees to help change their lives through health and fitness.
