Get You In Shape’s Core Value #1 – Put people in a positive environment that creates encouragement, inspiration, accountability and motivation.

Get You In Shape wanted to start off the year right with a proven way to get RESULTS from the start. A Team Biggest Winner Challenge the for 6 weeks in the beginning of 2018. We had 29 clients who participated and seven teams who all came together to help keep each other motivated and ACCOUNTABLE.

The results were AWESOME. Over 145 Pounds lost and 204 Inches from the group! The average weight loss was 5.1 pounds and 7.0 inches in just 6 weeks.

WE ALSO HAD A LOT OF FUN!

Individual Winner – Carol Orlich – Team Flash – 5:30am class

Describe how the Get You In Shape Biggest Winner Contest has helped you these past 6 weeks? Having a 6 week goal with a group helped me, not too short- not too long. Accountability – team reaching out to each other.

My fitness pal—enough said. Writing down what I put in my mouth is very eye opening.

More fun with peers- more fun in group,  great to meet other peeps in your 5:30 am class since it’s a  5:30 am class …..exercising and discussing recipes…

Daily message from Coach helped me focus on important goals, examples……water- stretching-posture.

What have been some of the benefits and results from the GYIS Biggest Winner Contest over the last 6 weeks?  It made me pay attention to food & meal planning. I lost 10.8 lbs abd 12.8 inches.  I tried new food and met new people.  I feel better  about myself that I could resist vino for most of the challenge 😊


Individual Winner – Diana Sircar – Team Flash – 5:30am class

How the Get You In Shape Biggest Winner Team Challenge has helped you these past 6 weeks? The GYIS Biggest Winner contest has helped me stay motivated to reach my “So That’s”. Having a class to go to 5 or 6 days a week where I knew I would find my teammates, or one of the other people I have met since joining GYIS, kept me dedicated to showing up each day. Knowing that I had a 6-week commitment, it was easier to try to implement ALL of the program from the meal plan, to the classes, to MyFitnessPal, and even to Facebook….though I’m not much of a ‘face booker’ (that was probably the hardest part for me!). Having VERY motivated coaches, such as Billy and Karen, also kept me on track. They both welcomed me on their respective days, bootcamp or cardio club, with a friendly face and guided me to improving my fitness through proper techniques for weights and running. I really appreciated learning more about how to do things the ‘right’ way so that I get the most benefit from the exercise. All of the coaches were friendly, welcoming, and made the classes un-intimidating, albeit strenuous and challenging.

What have been some of the benefits and results from the Get You In Shape Biggest Winner Team Challenge over the last 6 weeks? Benefit #1 – l am now cinching my belt one notch tighter! Fitting into my clothes better, feeling great about the exercise I’ve been doing, looking more toned and slimmer are all other benefits! I know I’ve only lost about 6 or so pounds, but I’m sure that I’ve built some muscle and hope to shed a few more pounds/continue to get slimmer as the weeks go on. I know that my legs are stronger and I can run better than I could 6 weeks ago…it helped that I REALLY enjoyed Cardio Club. Karen kept the workouts fun and she taught me about running intervals to get stronger and faster. It “almost” didn’t seem that hard…but I KNOW I got a great workout each time based on my results. Getting into a routine of exercising regularly has really helped me to re-establish a healthier lifestyle.

On another note…I think that starting a 6 week program in January is TOUGH!  The weather is so cold!  I give US ALL credit for showing up and getting it done during these cold, windy and even rainy days.  Springtime is going to make exercising soooooo much easier.  I’m really looking forward to the months ahead.  🙂
Thanks to all of you for keeping us all motivated, encouraged, and on our way to healthier selves!!

Describe how the GYIS Biggest Winner Team Challenge has helped you these past 6 weeks? Motivation, it helped me to be dedicated to my workout. Also it helps me to be accountable to what I eat and drink. Also I drink more water than I did before I started GYIS.

What have been some of the benefits and results from the GYIS Biggest Winner Team Challenge over the last 6 weeks? It is the best think I have ever done for myself.  I worked out at other gyms but never noticed a difference until I joined GYIS. As I joined GYIS I loved how I got to work out every day with a team (FLASH) – (F)it (L)adies (A)lways (S)tay (H)ealthy).  I worked out every day, I changed my eating habits, and I gained strength and energy. On my first mile run it took me 14:32min the last time I did it took me  11:20min.!

Debbie Slayter – Lost 5 inches in 6 weeks!
Describe how the GYIS Biggest Winner Team Challenge has helped you these past 6 weeks? It’s helped me by giving me the support and accountability from the rest of the team, encouraging me to show up for every workout. (Even on a Friday that I was driving to Houston)

What have been some of the benefits and results from the GYIS Biggest Winner Team Challenge over the last 6 weeks? I’m in a regular exercise routine again, and even though I’m not a morning person I’ve been committed to the 5:30 a.m. class.

After the first meeting for GYIS I will admit I felt a little overwhelmed and like I had a case of information overload.  I ended up liking the encouragement and I really liked all the women I got teamed up with but I’m pretty sure they did a better job following all of the rules.  It’s not that I didn’t want to follow all of the darn instructions, it’s just that when I get overwhelmed I simplify and that’s what I had to do to make it work for me.

So saying that, my number one goal was to get into an exercise routine and I feel like that’s something I accomplished! Now that I’ve got the exercise going, I’ll focus more next on the diet.

Looking forward to the next 6 months!

Describe how the GYIS Biggest Winner Team Challenge has helped you these past 6 weeks? The Biggest Winner Contest helped my get back on track after the holidays.  It made me recommit to working out and making it a priority.   It also helped me refocus my eating by making healthier choices and reducing portion size.

What have been some of the benefits and results from the GYIS Biggest Winner Team Challenge over the last 6 weeks? One of the many benefits is my measurements have gone down.  I feel stronger and my clothes fit better.  It also made me realize working out alone will not yield the results I want.  I must follow the “darn instructions” and eat healthier as well.  Focus on my “So that” to help with the triggers that may lead to less desirable choices.  I loved reconnecting with my workout tribe!  It was exactly what I needed after a busy holiday season and being sick.

I hadn’t worked out much in the last year due to work and life situations so the contest helped me get back on track.

What have been some of the benefits and results from the GYIS Biggest Winner Contest over the last 6 weeks?(1) Over the last six weeks, most importantly I lost weight and inches.  (2) Daily I tracked what I ate and tracked my exercise. (3) I ate breakfast, (4) I packed snacks for the week and took to work. I never got bored, because I would do several variety items.  (5) I planned meals and made decisions about eating out prior to going to a restaurant.  Working out and eating right go hand in hand, so both worked well for me. Competition is always good, but having teammates makes it more fun than trying to do it alone.
