Motivation, as defined in the dictionary is the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way. For me, it’s what lights a fire in me and up under me. Is it the results I get from eating a certain way? Is it how I feel when I am stronger and less exhausted? Is it knowing that I did my best and that’s good enough for me? Truthfully it’s all that and more.
At Freeport Health Club and Freeport Health Club+PLUS motivation is one of the tools our trainers and coaches use every single day to keep our members rolling. Look, we all have our bad days. It’s a way of life. Knowing what we did and how it affects us allows us to learn what not to do. Super simple. No finger pointing, no lectures. Tough love, yeah, sometimes. But we do it with love and concern. You can’t motivate someone if they are afraid to come talk to you or show up to work out or to get on that dreaded scale. They have to trust you.
And now it’s the holiday season.
One of the ways we help our people either maintain their weight or lose fat during this time of year is with our Holiday Body Fat Percentage Competition. It’s our 4th year and the prizes have varied between $80 and $150! It’s friendly competition, full of fun and encouragement. And it’s really easy to get signed up.
Here’s how it works:
All entrants pay a $10 fee when signing up. This money goes into a kitty and whoever loses the most body fat percentage wins ALL the cash!
When you come in to pay the $10, you are measured to determine what you starting body fat percentage is.
The first weigh in and measurement to be taken place the week of November 25, 2019 and last measurement to be taken place the week of January 3, 2020.
All competitors must be MEASURED a minimum of 2 times during the competition.
Please Note: Current weight loss members will be measured as scheduled per their program, but will also be measured the week of November 25th and January 3rd specifically for this competition.
ALL weigh-ins and measurements must be during measuring hours in the Freeport Health Club+PLUS office. The hours are: Monday 9 am-1 pm and 3:30 pm – 4:45 pm, Thursday 12:30 pm – 5:30 pm and Friday 8 am -11 am.
The winner will be announced no later than Friday, January 10, 2020.
This competition is open to anyone! Membership to Freeport Health Club or Freeport Health Club+PLUS is not required.
Each participant also receives a FREE 20 minutes “Tune-Up” from one of our Personal Trainers.
