“Team Dead, Or Deadly would like to thank NSW Rugby League and NSW Health for the Knockout Health Initiative. Our team pushed themselves hard through some very cold winter mornings to come and work out which gave us first place. A special mention to Catherine Rowe, Tamara Ardler, Shana Hampton, Deb Bowman and Janet Atkins in our team who were the most consistent participants through this Julie Young Challenge. The importance of the weight loss and what this leads to in terms of long term health really needs to be stressed… for example one participant was given 12 weeks by her GP to reduce her cholesterol or go on medication probably for the rest of her life. We did a lot of resistance training and made a few changes to her diet over the challenge period and her cholesterol went from 10.2 down to 4.8. The participant feels amazing, has increased energy and mood and says she will never go back to her old lifestyle. These outstanding results are what Waminda’s Dead or Deadly Program and the NSW Knockout Health Challenge is all about… reducing chronic disease in Aboriginal Communities across NSW. So keep up the good work everyone!”
