“This contest is one of many ways I communicate with those looking to better their lives through fitness, nutrition, health and sports,” says Marta Montenegro, founder of the contest, editor-in-chief of SOBeFiT Magazine and creator of the new Montenegro Method DVD Series. “This is your time when you can be in the spotlight and get acknowledged for your achievements in fitness and health!”
The Fittest Person of the Year Contest is open to those who are 18 years of age and older. The winning male and female will be featured in SOBeFiT’s Nov/Dec 2010 issue and receive $65,000 in prizes including an original sculpture designed by artist Romero Britto and roundtrip airfare to the VIP award ceremony. Last year’s winners, Lynette Mena and Edwin Lopez, were an integral part of a national marketing campaign to promote the competition. “At first, I didn’t think I had what it took to win, and I couldn’t believe it when I got selected as a finalist,” said Lynette, a physical therapist in Miami. “But having won the contest, I was honored and hope my triumph has inspired people to live a healthier lifestyle the way others have inspired me.”
Along with Lynette, SWAT team sergeant and boot camp instructor Edwin Lopez has received much praise for his commitment to health and fitness. “After winning this competition, I am more connected to the community than ever before, and my boot camp classes have developed a cult-like following,” Edwin said. “Winning this competition has meant a lot to my family and me!”
The judging process designed to assess each contestant’s fitness, nutrition, health and sports habits, along with community involvement.
