Local Concord Area Fitness Center Missing Clients As Contest Ends


Epsom, NH Based Get Fit NH Watches The Equivalent Of 5 People Disappear As Clients Lose 679.2 Pounds In 7 Weeks


Get Fit NH, recently voted the Best Gym in Concord for the fourth year in a row, just finished their annual “Sizzlin’ Summer Slimdown” body transformation contest, and the result was their clients losing 679.2 pounds – the equivalent of five people’s body weight.


Congratulations to Lori, Sue, Carol, Andrea and Colleen of Team Buttercups (as in “Suck It Up Buttercup”) for being the winners of the 2013 Sizzlin’ Summer Slimdown.  These ladies formed a team and over 7 weeks carved off 51 pounds. Lori, who lost 8.75% body weight said it was tough but worth it. “I had the support of Team Buttercup and the Get Fit NH coaches. The weekly habits I learned will help me to keep the weight off.”


“If it was easy to lose weight we wouldn’t be in the middle of a growing obesity crisis in this country.” Nancy Carlson, head coach of Get Fit NH Epsom says. “Seeing each of our training classes support each other as we learned new habits designed to get and keep the weight off was incredible. Having that network of support makes it easier to keep going when discouragement or complacency sets in. Our clients are amazing.”


Get Fit NH upped the incentive further this year with a prize package that included custom training gear, massages from Peace and Balance Body Therapies, a gift basket from Baked Downtown Café and Bakery, gifts from Nike and Hood Dairy. Get Fit NH also provided the winners a gift certificate to shop at the Concord Coop. 


To learn more about how Get Fit NH can help you achieve these kind of results, please email Nancy at [email protected] or give her a call at (603) 344-2651 for a free 2-week trial to her Epsom/Concord training facilities to experience the best personal training in NH, please visit

Chairman, Friends of Epsom’s Historic Meeting House Committee


I would like to thank everyone who was involved with Epsom’s Historic Meeting House project for your encouragement and support. You have given your time and talents to successfully preserve one of Epsom’s most valuable historic landmarks.


Through the years you have donated hundreds of hours going to meetings, applying for grants and working on the building and the grounds. There have been times of disappointment and discouragement because we had not been able to move along as fast as we had hoped to, but we kept the dream alive until our charter ended. Now we have to pass the project over to the Select Board to be completed.


I would also like to thank the group of individuals who took over the work. They spent many hours over the last few months studying the needs of the town office, and developing a plan that will provide adequate office space for years to come.


The group will be presenting its proposal to the Board of Selectmen on July 8, 2013 at 7:30 pm. Everyone is encouraged to attend this meeting and see how we can develop the Meeting House into our New Town Office Building. Thanks to all.
