I start on January 14th. I did it last year and did really well (I kept it off most of the year too until the holidays came around) but I am still under from where I started last year.

Athenaheim, it is 12 week challenge that Gold's Gym is offering. (body transformation type of challenge). I'm not sure of all the details yet, but my weight in is at 10:30am on Sunday.

The guy in my gym last year won the whole east coast for his category or something. It would be a great motivator. The only thing holding me back from doing it is I have to bring my 10 mo old to the childcare at my gym and she can only really stand an hour of being there. Are you going to get training sessions? Are you trying to lose or build muscle. Aw man, I just peeked at your diary. I'm intimidated!

Damn, I dont know that the Utah sites are doing this. I go almost daily and have not seen a thing about it..

is it a personal trainer?

From what I understand you can utilize a trainer if you want but its not required. It's more about making the commitment. Ask the front desk people at your gym. They should know.

Hmmm...I'm curious what this is all about. I love GG

don't forget to load on carbs and sodium for a couple days before your weigh in ;)

oh i'll be loading up on sodium a few days before pic day... for sure. then.. it's game on. !
i did pay extra for 3 personal training sessions. and I am also thinking about joining the small group training. I've been at the gym at least 3x a week since Sept w/no results. TRX and powerplate training is offered at my gym. 10 classes are $85.00, that plus 3 personal training sessions should help. Classes I take are body pump + tabata spin on wed, core + cardio class on Thurs when I can. Then I just do my own thing (which has not been working). I am up to 110 walking lunges and 1010 steps on the stairmaster in 17 mins. I need to do better than that and mix in some yoga free weights. Can't wait to see what my trainer has in store for me.
January 8, 2013 6:55 PM
Sigh...I gotta take more classes.
January 8, 2013 6:58 PM
.. and getting out of your comfort zone. ;-)
January 8, 2013 7:13 PM
Exactly!

Tomorrow ill join the challenge! Or Thursday...nah, ill do it tomorrow. :)
January 9, 2013 3:47 AM
good luck! ;-)

I'm going to sign up for the challenge at my gym in Virginia. I think I will start at the end of the month because I have several events to attend in the next couple of weeks and I want to be able to go 12 weeks without derailing my challenge.

Where do you live in VA? I'm in VA too! AND I'm formerly from Jersey! Weeeeeird!
January 11, 2013 10:07 AM
Where in Jersey? I am org. from Sayreville, NJ.. now I live near Harrisburg, PA.
January 11, 2013 1:47 PM
Really? I'm from Metuchen! I moved down here last year cuz of my husband's job. I miss NJ. I really miss the food. Surprisingly VA doesn't have many exceptional places to eat. The pizza here is crap!
January 12, 2013 4:04 AM
Food here sucks too.. i'm used to fresh fish, the local bakery, and yes, pizza!
I worked in Metuchen for a while.. looooooong time ago!
Small world!
