How does it work? (The Guidelines)

  • The competition will be approximately 8 weeks long.
  • All participants will:
    • Take your own full frontal and profile shot. All photographs are in shorts and a sports bra for the ladies.
    • Make an appointment with Body Fat Truck (if you want your Body Fat and Lean Mass Analysis) or schedule with a coach to get your body fat done via The Skulpt. Weigh In.
    • Perform I am CrossFit Benchmark Workouts.
  • On the last day all participants will repeat all tests.

What this challenge IS NOT:

  • This is NOT a biggest loser competition. This is not about improving one number, but 5 different numbers that measure your health. You can easily lose weight and become far less healthy.
  • It is NOT an excuse to fatten up before the competition. Don’t be counterproductive here!

What is the prize?

There will be a Male winner and Female winner! There will be prizes!!  Actual winnings will be announced after all sign ups are in. Prizes, along with your new fit self, will be worth it, we promise!!

The winner will be decided based on the best on 3 main categories:

1. Compliance

2. Before/After Pictures/Body Fat Truck

3. Mystery (only coaches know) Plus Lots of options for bonus points
We will be adding in some bonus points along the way, which will be kept secret

Obviously a huge prize adds a ton of incentive, but keep in mind that there are no losers in this competition. Everyone who participates will be all things CrossFit…Fitter, Faster, Stronger.

 

Challenge FAQs:

What if I already train 5 days a week, is this challenge for me?

That depends – do you want to reach your goals FASTER? Then, YES! Want to crush the CrossFit Open? Then, YES!

I can’t make the benchmark day, can I still take on the challenge?

YES! We have a scheduled make-up benchmark date. If you cannot make the make-up benchmark date your I Am CrossFit coach will schedule a time with you.

I just started CrossFit, can I take this challenge on?

Absolutely. In fact, we recommend it. Athletes of all levels take on this challenge and everyone gets results.

Because the challenge will entail so much one-on-one work with our trainers, we are limiting participation to the first 80 people who sign-up and pay. Registering is easy; simply sign up online! If you have any questions, email any of our coaches!

Will my photo end up on the internet?

No! These photos are for participants only. No photos will be posted on the Eminence or used for marketing without full permission.
