The journey for two local couples began this week on a segment on CTV News called "Healthier You". For 3 months these Edmonton-area couples have agreed to be committed to learning how to make healthy life habits. It isn't just a weight loss challenge, but rather about becoming a healthier person as a whole focusing on all aspects of mind, body, soul.
After an amazing response from the public, Carmen Leibel and the CTV Edmonton team sorted through 170 couples who applied to be part of this segment and selected their two couples. Mandy and Dean George who have a 14 year old son, and Rosalind and Ryan Godfrey who have three children aged 1, 3 and 5 years old.
Armed with four dedicated experts to help them along their way, the goal is to encourage other Edmontonians to follow along and inspire people to make healthy changes for themselves. Dietitian Loreen Wales (Revive Wellness), fitness expert Simon Bennett (Body by Bennett), psychologist Mallory Becker, and family doctor Maya Nishiwaki have all volunteered their time and services to help these couples reach their goals.
