Johnson High Student Wins Subway Fresh Fit Contest
SAVANNAH – Nikki Hanebrink, a ninth grade student at Sol C. Johnson High School, won the Subway Fresh Fit poster contest and got to meet Jared Fogle, Subway’s spokesperson, who came to congratulate her at Performance Initiatives Fitness on Friday, October 14th.
After making the presentation, Jared held up the “fat” pants he used to wear prior to losing 245 pounds in one year on the “Subway” diet.
Nikki’s winning poster illustrated her visual story of weight loss and fitness progress. Learning Cross Fit, weightlifting, and new ways of eating healthy helped her lose over 50 pounds.
Prizes awarded from Subway included $1,000 awarded to Coastal Empire Weightlifting, a program offered at Performance Initiatives Fitness, which will go toward new equipment. Nikki also won $1,000 in Subway gift cards, which she will share with her weightlifting teammates.
On Thursday, October 20, there will be a “Help Keep the Lights On” Open House at Performance Initiatives beginning at 3:00 pm.
On Saturday, October 22, the “Octoberfest” Weightlifting meet will be held at the facility beginning at 11:00 am. This is an opportunity to see the gym and athletes at work.
Performance Initiatives Fitness is located at the corner of Pennsylvania and Tennessee Avenue in the Aldersgate United Methodist Church Family Life Center, 912-507-7106.
