Weight Loss Challenge - 50/50 Fitness/Nutrition

2015 Weight Loss Challenge

  • 8 weeks to loose 8 percent of your body weight.
  • Cash prize for EVERY winner!
  • One-on-One Sessions
  • Nutritional Guidance
  • Fitness Challenges Weekly Giveaways
The competition begins on January 4th and ends on March 4th. You have exactly 8 weeks to lose as much weight as possible, beginning on the date of your initial consultation. You do NOT have to be an Energia gym member to participate. Individual consultations will take place in the new studio from Sunday, January 4th through Wednesday, January 7th, with one of our certified personal trainers. The 30 minute initial consultation can include any of the following:


  • Starting Weight, Measurements, and BodyFat %
  • Before Pictures
  • Goal Setting
  • Establishing a Plan/Workout  Routine
  • Creating an Electronic Food Journal via MyFitnessPal
Weekly Weigh-in
Each week, over the course of the program, you will be required to weigh-in either at home (by submitting a picture of your scale via email), or in the studio… beginning exactly one week from your start-up date. If you’re sending in photos from home, they need to come in on your weigh-in day, or they are not counted for that week.


Program Updates
Every Sunday, you will receive a weekly email with nutritional guidance, a fun fitness challenge, and updates on the progress of the competition. The individual who loses the greatest percentage of body fat will be announced and receive the prize for that week. Prizes include class packages, gift cards, nutritional products, and fitness gear.


4 Week Follow-Up
Any time during the month of February, you can schedule a 30 minute follow-up session with one of our personal trainers. During this time, you can discuss your progress and reassess measurements, modify your program/routine, and review your food journal entries.


Final Weigh-in
8 weeks from your start-up date, the challenge will end with a final weigh-in, “after” pictures (pics are always optional), and a comprehensive follow-up assessment to discuss your plans moving forward.



The entry fee for the 8-week program is $150.

Cash Grand Prize

$50 of each person’s entry fee will be placed into a cash pool. At the end of the 8 weeks, the money in the pool will be split amongst everyone who has lost 8% of their total body weight (1%/week).
To calculate how much weight you’d need to lose to win the cash prize, take your body weight and multiply it by .08.


Sample Calculations:
For a 150 lb person…150 x .08 = 12 lbs of total weight loss in 8 weeks.
For a 200 lb person… 200 x .08 = 16 lbs of total weight loss in 8 weeks.


With 20 participants, the eligible cash prize would be $1,000
With 50 participants, the eligible cash prize would be $2,500
With 100 participants, the eligible cash prize would be $5,000
