Million Dollar Body(TM) Is Awarding Over One Million Dollars to Help People
Lose Weight and Get in Better Shape
ANAHEIM, Calif., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Fitness website MillionDollarBody.com has just announced the $250,000 Grand Prize winner in its Million Dollar Body Game(TM), an ongoing incentive competition that is giving away over $1,000,000 this year to spur people to lose weight and get in shape. Earl Broughfman, prevailed over six other candidates who themselves won $50,000 for their personal accomplishments and joins Kimberly Barnett, who also won $250,000.00. Here's the story of MillionDollarBody's Grand Prize winner.
Covington, Virginia's Earl Broughfman, who goes by the nickname Wink, lost 125 pounds and dropped his body fat ratio from 30% to 16% in 260 days of hard work that earned him $1,000.00 as one of the 2007 winners in the Million Dollar Body Game. He continued his focused work to reach the $50,000 award plateau this week. He's presently at 185 pounds -- almost half his original weight.
Thinking back on his journey, Earl remembers his shock when he once ran a tape measure around his waist. An even more profound epiphany came when he waited for an hour in an amusement park roller coaster line. He was humiliated when the ride operators couldn't fasten the restraints around his body. He sheepishly left the line.
"Because most of the activities in my life at that time revolved around food, it brought on issues with my personal health," Earl recalled. "I may have lived to be a decent age, but not well. With obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, sleep apnea and my feet breaking down on me, it wasn't looking good!"
Earl overcame his obstacle of "overeating" by using the 40/30/30 Balanced Slim Down Plan. "It feels great to go into a store and be able to buy 'normal' clothes, not off the 'BIG AND TALL' rack like I had done for so many years! What a difference 49 inches and 140 pounds can make when you look at something like that," he exclaimed.
Since winning the Million Dollar Body Contest in February, he completed a round of P90X. In late October he began another round. He is currently incorporating P90X Plus into his regimen.
Earl credits Suzie, his wife and soul mate, as serving as a pillar of support, a cheerleader, chef and confidant. Yet, he continues to come back to his thrill ride memory as an analogy. "Most people I know have a roller coaster story of their own and a strong desire to lose weight. I know there are a lot of people out there with over 100 pounds to lose that can benefit from my personal journey, and it excites me to show them by my example, exactly what Million Dollar Body and their winning team can do for them!"
"I am so thankful for the vision and commitment of Million Dollar Body's Founder, Carl Daikeler and Power 90/P0X's creator Tony Horton. I feel my journey has just begun, and by continuing to 'Push Play,' drinking my P90X Recovery Formula, taking the Slimming Formula, Performance Formula Vitamins, Activit Vitamins and using the P90X Performance Bars, not only has it shown me a door I didn't realize was there, but it will continue to open doors to opportunities I used to only dream about," Earl declared.
"Earl is a deserving winner of our $250,000 Grand Prize," declared Carl Daikeler, CEO of Beachbody.com.
"Yet, he and Kimberly Barnett and our six $50,000 champs are not the only winners. Every Beachbody and Million Dollar Body customer wins in some way. Just by following the winners' stories online, people have the extra motivation to make positive life changes and become healthier," he continued. "Obesity is an epidemic in this country. Losing weight takes perseverance and our kind of honest, healthy approach. Seeing others who put in the effort and get the results helps everyone stay motivated and focused."
