Orange County's fitness leader The 12, has just announced the male and female winner of their $10,000 12 Week Fitness Challenge, a division of their signature Challenge which more than 8,000 people have successfully completed to date.

    NEWPORT BEACH, CA, June 11, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- For their second year in a row, The 12 held a $10,000 12 Week Challenge for men and women of diverse backgrounds who were ready to take the ultimate Challenge and change their lifestyle to attain optimal health and wellness. While keeping their eye on the cash reward and prize packs, each man and women set out to achieve their own personal body fat goal. During their 12 week journey, which began with a 10 day cleanse, each person began to learn about macro and micro nutrients, how to properly fuel their own individual body, understand why weekly food prep is key for work week meal success, and discover the power of Afterburn Training . Although each of the 2015 Challengers are true champions, and each achieved incredible independent success, the top male and top female Challenger with the highest percentage of body fat loss ultimately took home the cash reward and prize packs. Todd Palmateer who began his journey at 30.6% body fat ended at 11.8%, while Danielle Dintino started at 24.7% body fat and ended at 15.6% body fat. These two tenacious individuals also served as inspiration to the complete team of Challengers and were steadfast in their commitment to the process. The award ceremony was held at The Winery in Newport Beach, with local community sponsors in attendance including: REMAX/Prestige, Studio Cycle, lululemon South Coast Plaza, 2XU Fashion Island, Newport Center Smile Design, Gladstone LC, Klean LA and Seasons 52.

Combining the core principals of nutrition, Afterburn Training , and community support, we set out to change lives and create a positive, sustainable movement of health and wellness. It continues to be a privilege and honor to serve our community." - Josh Boyd, CEO and Co-Founder of The 12
