Your Fitness Quest Transformation Contest

2016 Transformation Contest
Runs from January 1st- April  3oth

Transform you body to a healthier you in a little over 3 months.
Instead of focusing on just weight loss, this contest will use judging criteria based on improvements in the following 5 areas:

     1)      Body Composition -40% of score     (determined with body fat testing)
     2)     Measurements -20%                         (chest, waist, hips, thighs, arms)
     3)     Aerobic Conditioning-15%                 (1 mile walk/run improvement)
     4)     Muscular Strength-15%                    (pushups and planks)
     5)     Customized Fitness Goal-10%          (you pick a personal fitness goal)

We will provide the initial assessment and consultation where you will weigh  in, test your body fat percentage, take measurements, do your initial fitness testing, and take before pictures. At the end of April we will retest and measure to see who has made the most progress in those areas.

There will be many prizes and recognition for the participants who make  improvements, but the grand prize is a trip to Oahu, Hawaii for a week with Tom and Becky in late August/Early September 2016! The trip includes airfare, lodging on the North shore, fun activities include visiting Pearl Harbor, Waimea Falls, the Dole Plantation, hiking Diamond Head, snorkeling in Hanauma Bay, relaxing at the beach and a day at the Polynesian Cultural Center featuring their amazing shows and Luau.

There will be one individual category winner and a couples division winner for the Hawaii trip. Anyone is welcome to participate but in order to qualify for the prizes, participants will need to be involved with and subscribed to the following services during the contest dates:
$200 per person per month or $300 per couple subscription which includes:

    1)      Initial consultation and assessment

2016 Events Calendar

Here is a list of the upcoming events that I will be sponsoring this year. Mark your calendar for the activities that interest you most and more details will be coming out closer to each event date on the Your Fitness Quest Facebook page. Let's make 2016 a fun and healthy year. 

Your Fitness Quest 2016 Calendar

February 6th Resistance Training Class
Learn the basics of resistance training and how to safely and effectively exercise by using machines, lifting weights, kettle bells, calisthenics, body weight exercises, resistance straps, etc.

March 1st-31st 4th Annual Triathlon in a Month Challenge
Finish your own Iron Man length triathlon. You get the entire month to pull it off.
During the month of March swim 2.4 miles/ bike 12 miles/ and run 26.2 miles.
We are getting rid of the 17 hour cut off time so everyone can complete it at their own pace. It’s very doable if you are consistent and is a great way to improve your cardiovascular endurance.

April 9th Yoga Class and Flexibility Seminar
This class will teach the basics of yoga and will also include helpful information about how to improve one’s posture, range of motion, flexibility, and joint mobility.

May 1st– May 31st Exercise Variety Challenge
During the month of May see how many different types of exercise you can complete on your own. Choose from a list of 31 different activities we will provide and see how many of them you can do over the course of the month.

June 8th The Intangibles
Many people focus all of their attention on exercise and diet, but at this event we will talk about the intangibles like thoughts, friends, pets, plants, laughter, learning, service and how these simple things can surprisingly impact our health and give us a higher quality of life without making you sweat.

July 2 or 4th Group Hike up Y Mountain and/or 5K run
We will have a fairly easy group hike up Y Mountain for those of you who have not done this for a while. If you have never run a 5K race I will personally force you to walk, jog, or run the Provo Freedom Festival 5K so you can check that off your bucket list. It’s a great race and a fun environment to finish at.

August- 6th Hike Timpanogos Mountain
This is a more challenging all day hike if you go to the top of the mountain so we will help you prepare with conditioning and training several months prior to the actual hike. The good news is this hike is much easier than Everest. The bad news is there will not be any sherpas to carry your lunch.

September 10th Taking Better Care of Yourself Class
We will discuss getting better quality sleep, rest and recovery from exercise, stress management, how to listen to feedback from your body, etc. These little things add up over time and can make a big difference in your health.

October 1st Happy Healthy Holidays
We will teach you how to navigate the holidays without the customary weight gain, unhealthy eating, and stress. Learn how you can still socialize and enjoy the holidays without giving up on your health and fitness goals. You won’t have to dig yourself out of a hole when Jan. 1st rolls around next year.

November 5th Mental and Emotional Health Seminar
We tend to focus so much on our bodies that we sometimes forget that our physical self is also affected by the mental, social and spiritual aspects of our lives. Learn how to create a healthier balance in these different areas of your life.

December 3rd  Your Fitness Quest Client Appreciation Party
