Meet Christopher Merrill, Our "Changing the Game" Winner

Recommended by his mom, the student topped the poll in our contest.

Congratulations to Christopher Merrill, our "Changing the Game" contest winner. And a big thank you to those who entered the contest and those who took the time to vote for Christopher and other finalists.

Christopher was recommended by his mother, Brenda, who singled out how her son was changing the face of fitness in his community. In her entry, she wrote:

"My 21-year-old son is a game-changer. He’s a full-time college student and works three jobs, but physical activity is important to him. He works at a national health store and enjoys helping people better their health with knowledge. He also works at a shoe store. He does training at a gym, but he helps others achieve health and fitness. He will put together a fitness and diet program for anyone that asks him for help. He used to help with rocket football and high school wrestlers whenever he was home but now works so hard to pay his way through college."

The grand prize recipient will receive: a $1,000 Gift Card, One-Year-Free Gym Membership (Estimated Value: $960), Complimentary Tickets to see Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom (Estimated Value: $30.00).
