36 Allied Printing employees took part in our 12 week Shape-Up Challenge! Those who participated learned a lot about wellness and fitness. It took strategic, constant discipline: making healthier eating choices, portion control, capping daily calorie intake and increasing physical activity. “Shape-uppers” weighed in weekly, then had their fat loss and body mass index (BMI) percentages checked using a hand-held OMRON fat loss monitor. As a team, we lost a total of 201.4 pounds and lost 154.22% of fat!

Grant Newman came out the winner in both categories with an amazing 15.41% weight loss and an even more amazing 27.54% fat loss. We spoke to Grant about his winning strategy, and how he cut his calories to 1,373 a day (this MUST be the magic number), hit the gym every night and ran many miles. His own competitive spirit motivated him to not lose “the contest”. The three dozen home-made cookies baked by Grant’s wife and shared with all may have been his ultimate secret weapon.

Second place went to Mark Hook for his 10.75% weight loss, with third place awarded to Richard Powell for a respectable 6.64% weight loss. In the fat loss category, second place was awarded to Nick Middendorf for losing an incredible 22.67%. Jon DiSalvatore captured third place with an outstanding fat loss of 20.19%.

Congratulations to all - enjoy those six-pack abs! #healthyallied #thealliedway

Let’s join Cindy Livingston in celebrating 35 years with Allied Printing Services!

Cindy was destined to be in our industry, like her parents Rudy and Carlene, they too worked in printing. As a young girl, Cindy would accompany her father to work on weekends, where she got her first impression of printing.

Apparently, she really liked printing! Cindy was hired by John Sommers, Sr. as a folder operator in 1984. Throughout her years with Allied, she also worked as a pocket folder operator until being promoted to a supervisory position in 2004. Cindy is extremely knowledgeable in that position, and that knowledge and her ability to “get the job done” make her an integral part of the finishing process. Always approachable and willing to help, Cindy’s experience and her organizational skills allow her to oversee a multitude of jobs in different stages and to handle all of them with ease. She has been Hand Bindery Supervisor for years now, earning the Circle of Excellence Award in 2008 and 2013.

Congratulations to Cindy on a great 35 years! #thealliedway
