Orangetheory Fitness Transformation Challenge
I just finished up the Orangetheory Transformation Challenge! This challenge is eight weeks long. As I mentioned in this past post, I would update you on what I thought of the challenge. Let me start by saying I have never been on a “diet,” entered a fitness challenge or anything like that. I workout and eat right in my everyday life, so I thought that was enough. However, joining the challenge gave me the motivation to go work out on days I really didn’t want to and say no to empty calories such as candy at the movies, which is totally my weakness!
Orangetheory runs this challenge is done once a year there are two winners. One female and one male that will win $5,000.00 each for the most weight lost! #motivation
What is involved in this challenge?
As part of the Orangetheory challenge and to be eligible to win the prize money, you are required to work out three days a week for 6 out of the eight weeks. There will be a large chart there for you to mark the days you attend class.
You will also be required to keep a food log. I was so not looking forward to this at all, but it turned out to be my favorite part! There is, of course, an app for that. The app makes it super easy. You start by inputting your stats, including weight, height and such. Then you add your goal weight. It will tell you what your daily calorie goal needs to be to get to your ideal weight. You can scan bar codes, add food in manually and also choose repeat foods you eat daily. I’m a creature of habit, so this feature was handy to me. It was so interesting to keep track of calories and very motivating!
You will be assigned an Orangetheory coach that will be available to you by email for any of your fitness questions. They can also help you with suggesting diet changes. Your food log will need to be turned into them weekly.
If you are a follower of mine you already know I’m a long time fan of Orangetheory. However, entering this challenge has been eye-opening. I loved how motivating it was to be a part of this! I highly recommend it!
