What is the GYIS Biggest Winner Contest?
This is simply a contest to keep you motivated and accountable for 6 weeks. There are a few things that we are going to do to help hold you accountable to the simple things we all need to do to stay on track and get the BEST results in just 6 weeks.
Here are the basics:
The cost is $29 to participate.

Why are we doing it?
1. Start 2017 Off-Right – The #1 answer we get from folks joining our program is that they simply won’t do it on their own. Having a program that is geared around helping keep you accountable (through a team and checklists) will simply help you get off to a fast start in 2017.

2. T.E.A.M. – Together Everyone Achieves More – We know that from our past programs having a TEAM will help you achieve results AND allow the process and journey to be easier.

3. Strengthen our GYIS community – We know the power of being involved in a community where everyone is like minded and on the same page. We know that this will help YOU and your team. We can all come together to help motivate and inspire each other in our GYIS community.

4. Make the process of Getting/Staying in Shape Enjoyable – Let’s face it, going to every workout, doing your off-day cardio, journaling everything you put in your mouth, and following the Nutrition Program is tough. This Contest will help make the process easier and more enjoyable.

5. Keep YOU Motivated and Accountable – We know that this time of year is tough. Thanksgiving and Christmas are in your rear view window and you may be facing the results of some poor eating & exercise decisions during the past 2 months. What better way than to have a contest that will help ensure you get on track and stay there?

Why are we charging $29 to Enter? We know that if you invest some money (put some skin in the game) then you will more than likely stick with the program. Since this is a team and individual contest, we also think this will help everyone follow the guidelines.

Team & Individual Contest – The Scoop

The Scoop

  1. The Contest will start January 2nd  and run for six (6) weeks through February 10th.
  2. Everyone that is joining will need to get weighed & measured January 2nd. We will offer it a few times but it will be your responsibility to ask a trainer before or after a session to get your measurements. If you are also doing our Transformation Contest (go here for information), we will be having a kick off meeting either virtually or on December 29th and will be doing measurements then that you can use for the Biggest Winner Contest also.
  3. Each participant can select a team of their own choosing or will be placed on a team of other Get You In Shape clients. Teams will have four to five participants. If you already have a team, please email Kathy Pendergast (kathyop@getyouinshape.com) and let her know the team members. Ideally, you want to get on a team with folks that work out at the same time as you do.
  4. All teams will be announced by January 2nd. This is so that we can provide everyone with their team members’ contact information, your team can choose a team name, and you make arrangements to take a team picture. For the team picture, ask one of the trainers to take it on their phone or you guys can take it. Post it on the GYIS VIP Group page on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/GetYouInShape/) and send a copy to Kathy Pendergast (kathyop@getyouinshape.com), including your Team name.
  5. Each team will help keep everyone accountable and on track. This is all about creating a support system so that we can all help keep each other motivated, accountable and inspired. Together Everyone Achieves More (T.E.A.M.)
  6. Each TEAM will be relying on the team members to hold each other accountable, motivated, and inspired.
  7. Although this is a client driven team contest, each team will also have a Get You In Shape Fitness Coach to help with any questions and weekly check-ins.
  8. Everyone will track their workouts and nutrition and each week you will share/turn in your weekly journal with your trainer/coach.
  9. We will have some gauges to track fitness progress, results, attendance, and off-day cardio. These will all be factors in determining the individual and team winners.
  10. The idea of the Get You In Shape Biggest Winner is to provide extra motivation, inspiration, encouragement and accountability by having teams and a healthy dose of competition.

We ask that you commit yourself to the program for six weeks. We know many of our clients are looking for extra motivation this time of year. As a GYIS community, I hope we all can help each other push through the next six weeks!
