Living Skies CrossFit Training Centre held a weight loss program and fundraiser during the month of January. The “Jonzin January” weight loss challenge was open for entries to all members of both the Estevan and Carlyle locations of Living Skies CrossFit.
Twenty-six members anted up, raising a sum of $1,300. Each participant, upon entering, named a charity of their choice to donate the proceeds to. Also, each participant took an oath of no alcohol, drugs or junk food for the month of January.
Michelle Walsh was the top loser leading all participants, who in total, lost a combined weight of 50 kilograms. Her charity of choice was the Estevan Family Resource Centre.
Living Skies CrossFit has two locations: in Estevan at 1009-6th Street and adjacent to Highway #13 in Carlyle. Memberships run month-to-month and cost from $130 to 150, depending on the desired fitness program one chooses.
Carson Brady, who is the proprietor of the businesses, opened the Carlyle location in October 2015 and the Estevan location in 2018.
The facilities offer several training exercises, including power lifting, gymnastics as well as rope climbing, peg board climb, and stationary bikes.
