A few months ago, Independence Blue Cross rolled out its Fearless Is… Sweepstakes, offering participants a chance to win a host of awesome Philly-centric prize packages that test the winners’ limits and push them to ‘Live Fearless’ — courtesy of local mainstays like Garces Group, the Philadelphia 76ers, and the Philadelphia Union.

Philadelphia magazine’s Be Well Philly decided to throw its hat in the ring by providing a totally transformative prize package. Now, the names have officially been drawn and we’re pleased to announce that the winner is — drumroll, please — Rhonda Cohen! 

Cohen’s price package will include a bevy of awesome wellness-oriented services from local companies, including: guidance from The Sporting Club at the Bellevue personal trainer, consultation with dietician Lindsey Kane (plus, a gift card to create at-home meals!), $500 to spend toward a new wardrobe/accessories at South Moon Under, and a full salon makeover at Bellevue Salon and Spa.

Not bad, right?

Cohen decided to enter the Independence Blue Cross Fearless Is… Sweepstakes because she recently underwent weight loss surgery and felt that the experience marked the beginning of a transformation. According to her, “the [sweepstakes] had all sorts of opportunities to transform. I’m very excited to go through the whole process and the journey.”

She hasn’t wasted any time beginning, either. In the past week, she’s met with Al Pough of The Sporting Club at The Bellevue, and Lindsey Kane, a nutritionist. Both health experts raved about Cohen’s enthusiasm and have already begun implementing their health regimens: Pough focusing on improving her core and strengthening her knees, joints, and lower back, while Kane went to the grocery store with Cohen for an initial consultation.

“Generally, I like to do a very 360-degree, comprehensive plan with my clients. I like to meet in person, get on the same page and figure out their [lifestyle]. From there, we discuss their goals,” says Kane. (Tip: Follow Lindsey on twitter and instagram at @DietitianLKane, or email her at [email protected] for a nutrition consultation.)

Over the next few months, Cohen will to check in with her team of experts, as she continues to explore her personal wellness boundaries and ‘Live Fearless’ — and we’ll be posting her progress along the way. Be sure to check back for updates!
