Northwest Champion & Christmas Cracker Winners

Published: 12 December 2016


Massive congratulations to MICHAEL KEMP from PORT HEDLAND who takes out this years Northwest Champion Cracker 2016!!15492143_1388845884501617_8976782531899289232_n

There were four judges for this award – one judge from each town -Derby, Broome, Port Hedland and Karratha. Some of these judges are fitness orientated, some are not, but they all are very familiar with Life and Soul and our infamous Christmas Cracker Challenge! Michael’s submission stood out to the judges through his massive support for his partner, Lorna (who ironically was PH’s Runner-Up Champ), his physical achievements, diet change, lifestyle improvements, the support he showed to fellow Crackers and general all round attitude change.

Michael wins 12mths membership to Life and Soul Health and Fitness Clubs, a fabulous trophy, his Club in Port Hedland gets to keep the perpetual Northwest Champion trophy for a year AND he gets to be one of Life and Soul’s Ambassadors for 2017 ๐Ÿ™‚

Congratulations Michael – Top effort! Also huge congrats to Amy Shelton, Henry Dos Santos and Aaron Agnew who were the other three contenders – the judging process was way too hard and none of the judges this year want to do it again next year (joking!!).

So that is the end of our award ceremonies for 2016 ๐Ÿ™

You should all congratulate yourselves on the effort and determination you put into the Christmas Cracker Challenge.

Over the last couple of weekends Life and Soul had their Christmas Parties along with the announcement of the Cracker Winners and Life and Soul Champion Awards.
