10 Week Challenge Results (Tammy Awe)

If you are looking for the best program to make a complete healthy lifestyle transformation, look no further than the 10-week challenge.


Meet Tammy Awe, an elementary school teacher, a CKO Kickboxing instructor, and a 10-week challenge graduate! Tammy’s 10-week challenge was special because she was the first CKO Seattle employee to complete the challenge. We have had 10-week challengers become employees but this is the first time an active employee finished the challenge!

Congratulations Tammy for setting an example and practicing what you preach!

The Tammy Awe Interview

Besides being an absolute warrior in the gym, what is your day job?

How did you learn about the challenge and was it a hard decision to sign up?

I learned about the challenge from my awesome bosses (Garett and Jessica Renon). They encouraged me to try it!

What was your favorite aspect of the challenge?

My favorite part of the challenge was the workouts! I love working out!

What was the hardest part about the challenge?

The difficult part was keeping my diet in check. Life brings stress and I tend to turn to food for that instant relief, but it doesn’t last and then I’m feeling bad because it packs on the weight! Vicious cycle! 

What motivates you to walk through that door day after day and continue to push yourself? 

Age! I want a healthy heart, I want to be able to live life to its fullest even at 75 years old!

What’s one thing you still find yourself struggling with? 

One thing I still struggle with is FOOD! I struggle with making good choices EVERY Day!

What would your advice be to some considering doing a 10 week challenge?

Do it! The only thing you have to lose is weight! The challenge really helps you keep things into perspective: goals, food choices, and workouts!

Have you tried any other challenges (with our gym or another)- if so what made this one different?

Yes, I started in January with the 28 day Transformation, then the 21 day Elimination, and then the 10 week Challenge! I really liked having the weekly meal plans to help keep me on track!

What can we do better to help you actualize your true potential? 

This is a difficult question. I think a lot of this comes from with inside yourself. I really liked the selfies though. Seeing the progress.

Share any relevant information you’d like about yourself that other team members might not know about you. 

I think preparing your meals for the coming week is crucial for success! I really think what you put into your body is the most important part of a weight loss challenge! I am human just like everyone else. I have my struggles. I started my fitness journey in 2011. I lost 50-lbs in 9mo. Within 2 years I gained 30-lbs back because I didn’t stick with my meal plan. The 10 week challenge has helped me find my way back to a healthy, lean me!
