On Saturday, June 19, 2010, the awards ceremony for the Premier Fitness $10,000 90-Day Weight Loss Challenge was held, with the top 25 members/participants from across Ontario in attendance. All received much-deserved recognition for their commitment to shedding almost 2,000 pounds collectively.

Premier Fitness CEO John Cardillo opened the awards ceremony by welcoming everyone and congratulating everyone on their accomplishments. Cardillo then spoke about the positive effects of exercise and proper nutrition on health and longevity.

The first place award of $10,000 went to 19-year-old Ken Greenham, a Premier Fitness London Member, who lost a total of 98 pounds.

The second place award of $5,000 went to 20-year-old Mario Linari from the Premier Fitness Dixie-Mississauga Club, who lost 87 pounds.

The third place award of $2500 went to 19-year-old Dan Ball, also from Premier Fitness London who lost 70 pounds.

The top three weight loss contestants were all under the age of 21 years. In addition to their cash prizes, they also walked away with a new and healthy outlook on life.

The participants from fourth through 25th place all received a one-month free membership for every five pounds they lost, as well as a year's subscription to the fitness magazine of their choice (Oxygen, MuscleMag International, Maximum Fitness), plus three free personal training sessions and a $300 gift certificate to Premier Medical Spa. On hand to congratulate the 25 Weight Loss Challenge participants was Bob Kennedy, the editor and publisher of Oxygen, MuscleMag and Maximum Fitness magazines.

The awards ceremony concluded with Canada's own best-selling author of "The Eat Clean Diet," Tosca Reno, who congratulated the participants for their accomplishments, shared some of her own personal experiences and offered the entire audience motivation to continue with their newly acquired 'healthy eating and fitness lifestyle'.
