What is the Transformation 30 Challenge (a.k.a. T-30)?

T-30 is F.I.T. Lakewood’s health & lifestyle challenge. This is not simply a weight-loss challenge. It is an all-encompassing TRANSFORMATION challenge with the goal of creating permanent LIFESTYLE changes. It is not just about becoming more fit, but about being able to change your mindset on what it means to be healthy. We want to challenge you for 30 days to add as many good things in your life as possible and rid yourself of the bad ones. This will hopefully set you off on the right foot to continue permanently.

We will have 2 categories that you can commit to for this challenge:

*Weight-loss: this is for anyone who is looking to focus mainly on decreasing a significant amount of body-fat percentage. Despite the fact that this category is called “weight-loss”, results will be measured based on body fat percentage lost – NOT pounds. This measurement can only be taken via the Body Fat Truck ‘s hydrostatic method (see info below about what hydrostatic testing is). This category is going to have its nutrition based on the Paleo Diet geared toward weight-loss. Body fat lost will count toward points earned for prizes. A winner will be announced for each category.

*Performance based: this is for anyone who is NOT currently looking to lose weight and would like to focus more on the performance and quality of their fitness. You will also be able to participate in the Body Fat Truck and track your results, which go toward your points total for this category.

How does the T-30 work?

The T-30 is a points based challenge. You can earn points on a daily/weekly basis by completing certain requirements (meals, check-ins with coaches, workouts, tagging on Facebook and many more TBD add-ons!).

Our kick-off date for the T-30 this year is January 14th. This is a required event for all who participate, however, if this is a conflict, please don’t let that keep you from signing up – just talk to Coach Chrissy. During the kickoff we will be going over the basics of what the challenge entails, the “rules”, how to earn points, the nutrition behind the 2 categories (weight-loss or performance based).  We will then perform the benchmark workouts as a group to set our starting points.

When is the T30 kick-off?

We kick-off on January 14th at FIT Lakewood at 10:00am. We will do about 30-45 minutes of lecture and then do our baseline workout!

 What is included in the T-30 Challenge?

  • Pre and post benchmark workout – we will test strength, endurance and work capacity
  • Pre and post Body Fat Truck testing
  • Weekly food log reviews and accountability (we will be using a brand new program called Pro Coach – associated with Precision Nutrition!)

 How do I get signed-up for the T-30?

The email sent out to all members includes a link to a sign-up sheet. It is linked below as well. You can type in your information there to commit to doing the challenge. There is also a sign-up sheet on the white board at the gym. Please write down you name/email on the sheet and indicate whether or not you will be including the Body Fat Truck as part of your challenge. Again, this is not required but you will not be able to add in body fat % lost to your points total at the end of the challenge.

Tuesday, January 17th (AM Times)

See information below under More T-30 FAQ’s to see what you need to bring with you to get dunked!

What is hydrostatic body fat testing?

Here is a link to the Body Fat Truck’s FAQ’s about hydrostatic weighing:

http://www.bodyfattest.com/#!more-about-hydrostatic-testing/c1899

Getting dunked takes just 10 minutes, and afterward, you’ll get a detailed report to keep, showing:

  • Your fat and fat-free body mass, as percentages and in actual weight
  • How much fat, if any, you need to lose to achieve your desired body composition
  • How many calories per day you burn without exercising—unique to you
  • How many calories you burn from different exercises—again, specifically for your body
  • Where you are on a scale of ideal body fat for your age and gender
  • Your history, if you’ve been tested before

See below under More T-30 FAQ’s what to expect the day of.

Do I have to do the hydrostatic weigh-in with the Body Fat Truck to participate in the T-30?

This is not required but you will not be able to add in body fat % lost to your points total at the end of the challenge.  You will still get plenty of benefit from just doing the challenge, however! Again, we are trying to make this about total transformation by not just focusing solely on the physical side of things.

 When is the retest for the Body Fat Truck?

The Body Fat Truck is scheduled to come back out to CFLW on February 13th (am) and 14th (pm). The link will be sent out about 2 weeks in advance to sign-up.

 Can a non-member family or friend do the T-30 challenge with me?

YES!! We are offering the opportunity for non-members to join in the challenge and participate with you. The more people you have doing it with you the better your chance of success!

What this challenge is NOT

This is NOT The Biggest Loser. Our focus in not pounds lost, weight on a scale, etc. The focus is on making permanent lifestyle changes and the detoxification of bad food and habits that crowd our current lives. This can take on many different forms, so be open to change in different ways other than just weight!!!

 Are there prizes?

Oh yeah! At the end of the 30 days and after the Body Fat Truck has come back out for all post-challenge tests, there will be a winner announced from each category (weight-loss, performance based). Both winners will win back their registration fees (minus the body fat truck) plus additional prizes from all our awesome sponsors:

RX Bars

Stronger Faster Healthier Supplements
