Get into the best shape of your life with Coach K’s weight loss and fitness challenge!

 

What is fitness/diet bet?

Fitness/diet bet is a 12 week program where participants make a weight loss or fitness goal and make a monatary bet against themselves.  If you achieve your goal by the end of the program you win your money back, but if you don’t meet your goal  your money  goes into the pot which is spilt among all the people who did meet their goal. The bet is meant to provide extra incentive for participants to meet their goal and to not quit on themselves.  For people that don’t want to bet, you can also join in on the fun just for the extra motivation.

The program will include motivational e-mails, team workouts, daily and weekly fitness/diet/lifestyle challenges, nutritional guidelines and weekly weigh-ins for those that want to weigh in.

Start date: program starts Monday 1/5/2015, participants can join in at any time during the next 2 weeks simply by emailing kristen@getkristenfit.com and scheduling a time to establish a goal and weigh in if needed.

End date: program ends Monday 3/30/2015. This is the final date.  All betters have to achieve their goal by this date in order to win their money back.

Buy in’s: In addition to the bet, pricing is as follows…

$25 to participate if you make a bet.

$50 to participate if you are just in for fun without establishing a goal and betting.

***If you choose to do weekly weigh-ins you must do weigh-ins throughout the entire program.  If you gain weight from week to week you owe $1 for each 0.1-1.0 pound gained.

The first 2 weeks of this program are a trial for everyone, and there will be “homework” assigned . If the homework is not completed, then your initial buy in will be returned to you and you will be kicked out of the program.  The homework will be basic and it will be a basic test of your commitment to your health and fitness.

To sign up please e-mail Kristen at kristen@getkristenfit.com.  Please also make sure to download the Get Kristen Fit Mobile app, and follow Get Kristen Fit on Facebook.
