On March 6th I began a ShapelyGirl Fitness Weight Loss Challenge with members of my fitness center. The Challenge will last 6 weeks. Ten women signed up. While all of them want to lose weight and inches I wanted to see how focused, committed and dedicated they would be so I added a point system where the top 2 winners will win a cash prize.
While percentage of weight and inches lost is a part of the challenge, participants can score points in 4 other categories including Exercise Classes, Food Charts, Journals and Circle Time.
Points can be accumulated as follows:
5 points for every exercise class taken at the ShapelyGirl Fitness studio
4 points for keeping a Food Chart
5 points for keeping a Journal
2 points for attending a Circle Time session at the ShapelyGirl Fitness studio (2 sessions given per week)
I want the participants to focus on what it takes to lose weight, safely and successfully, for long term results. So far I am happy to report everyone is working very diligently to score points. I will report on their progress weekly. I can say that so far they are excited and determined to change the way they think and act and we are breaking habits! Plus, who wouldn’t want to lose weight and inches and win cash?
