ELMWOOD PARK, N.J., July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Tiger Schulmann's Mixed Martial Arts (TSMMA) is pleased to announce the inspirational results of this year's Tiger Schulmann's 90-Day Challenge. Each year, thousands of TSMMA students join the life-changing challenge to achieve their weight loss and fitness goals in time for Summer. This year, over 1,200 TSMMA students reached the finish line.
From March 23 until June 22, students trained at one of the dozens of area TSMMA schools for a minimum of 4 hours per week and adhered to Tiger Schulmann's proven nutrition program. With motivation from instructors and fellow students, participants began to show amazing results after just a few short weeks. Grand prize winners were chosen based on most dramatic change to overall body conditioning. In addition, all students who adhered to training requirements and lost a minimum of 15 pounds were awarded one free TSMMA class for every pound lost.
"Every year, our 90-Day Challenge gets better," remarked TSMMA founder Daniel 'Tiger' Schulmann. "I keep reading and hearing in the news that Americans are more sedentary and out of shape than ever. But when I look at the students in our schools, I see the exact opposite. People come here to get discipline in their lives, and you can clearly see the result."
Daniel Dunn, a 45-year old student at TSMMA's Massapequa, NY school, lost 30 pounds and was the first place winner. His greatest motivation came from his Sensei and his family. "After my first class, I didn't think I was going to make it, but I always tell my kids to finish what they start, so I had to finish," said Dunn. Danny won 400 free TSMMA classes ($8,000 approximate retail value) and plans to continue his training.
Second place winner, Claire Coletti, 49, of TSMMA Toms River, NJ started the challenge at the behest of a friend. Just 90 days later, she lost 23 pounds and couldn't believe the results. "I'm almost 50 and this is the best shape I've ever been in!" said Coletti. Her prize consists of 250 free classes ($5,000 approximate retail value) and she, too, plans to continue her training.
Third place winner, Duane Foote, 32 year-old student at TSMMA Carle Place, NY, lost 30 pounds during the 90-Day Challenge. For Duane, this is the beginning of a longer self-improvement journey. "I'm going to continue living this lifestyle and working towards earning my black belt," said Foote. Duane won 125 free classes ($2,500 approximate retail value) and is well on his way to achieving his goals.
