Ray Kelly’s Fitness - All Information

Past Programs
 
An example of the program’s success was seen in our Arnott’s program. Over 10 weeks we provided a weekly 15-minute consultation for 53 employees. In that time they lost a total of 643kg, at an average of 12% weight loss. These participants were from a wide range of cultures and had to overcome a range of obstacles including having English as a second language, completing shift work, and of course having biscuits available everywhere. We returned 6 months later to measure the participants ability to maintain the loss and the average loss was still within 600 grams of their end of program weight. Many saw a reduction in medications and of the 37 who had high blood pressure during initial screening, only 5 still had high blood pressure by the completion of week 10.
 
More recently we have provided a program for the AFL club, the GWS Giants. Thirty of their fans followed the program for 12 weeks and lost a total of 461kg, at an average of 15.3kg each (14.2% of their starting body weight).
