Event description

Description

This fun and motivational community program encourages and supports individuals and teams to make healthy lifestyle changes, become more active and lose a modest amount of weight. The goal is for overweight / obese individuals to lose 7% by the end of the Challenge. Those who meet all the requirements (weigh-ins and weight loss) will split the $25,000 cash pot!

This year-round program includes:

  • A chance to earn CASH for losing a minimum of 7% of your total body weight
  • A ‘class pass’ to all 4 Axiom Fitness locations in the Treasure Valley ($240 value!)

The Challenge kicks off on Saturday, October 21, 2017 and wraps up on Friday, September 21, 2018. There are four weigh-ins participants must make in order to stay in the running for cash – the initial weigh-in in October, a 90-day in January, a 180-day in April and the final one in September.

FAQs

How are the winners determined?
Winners are determined by the percent of body weight lost – NOT the number of pounds lost.
Here’s how you figure it out:

  • Take the Number of pounds lost (ex. 14 lbs)
  • Divide by the STARTING WEIGHT (ex. 14 lbs divided by 200 = .07)
  • Multiply by 100 (ex. .07 x 100 = 7%)

How often do I need to weigh-in? There are FOUR weigh-ins for the 2017 program.

  • Initial: October 23-27, 2017
  • 90-Day: January 15-19, 2018
  • 180-Day: April 16-20, 2018 (3% body weight lost by 180-day weigh-in)
  • Final: September 10-14, 2018 (7% body weight lost by final weigh-in)

In order to compete for cash prizes, you must attend EACH weigh-in at one of the official weigh-in sites.

How do I earn a FREE entry into the FitOne 5k in September 2018?
Make the first three weigh-ins (first weigh-in in October; 90-day in January; and 180-day in April) and lose 3% of your bodyweight by the 180-day weigh-in, you will earn a free entry into the FitOne 5k walk/run in September 2018! *Free entry is non-transferable; must register for FitOne by Sept 1, 2018

What should I wear when I weigh-in?
For your FIRST and FINAL weigh-in, please wear a t-shirt and shorts/capris/sweats. NO JEANS OR HEAVY CLOTHING are allowed at the FIRST and FINAL weigh-ins.

What if I miss a weigh-in?
You will still be in the Challenge but you will be ineligible to win cash prizes. You will continue to receive e-tips, and you can attend any of the classes and programs. It’s the ONE and ONLY rule that keeps you in the running for the cash prizes so please plan accordingly. Don’t wait until the last day to weigh-in.

When is the Finale?
We will award all of the cash prizes and special honors on Friday, Sept 21, 2018, 6:00pm at the Healthy Living Expo.

Do I have to attend the Finale on September 21, 2018
Yes, cash winners must attend to accept their cash prizes. And EVERYONE is invited to attend this fun celebration!
