This time it’s not about WEIGHT LOSS, it’s about FAT LOSS. Here’s the difference.
Weight Loss You want to lower your body-weight, the sum weight of your bones, muscles, organs, body fat
Fat Loss You want to lower your body fat, the amount of fat your body carries.
Problems with Weight Loss-If you want to lose weight, it’s most likely because you carry too much fat. There are people who must lose weight, like athletes before a competition, but most want fat loss. So stop weighing yourself.
Unreliable- Your body-weight can fluctuate daily since it’s influenced by your stomach/bowel/bladder content, water loss/retention, muscle loss/gain, fat loss/gain, … You’ll have no idea what’s going on.
Irrelevant– 2 people with similar height can weigh the same, but look completely different because one has lower body fat than the the other.
Here’s How The Weight Scale Can Mislead You-Clothes, mirrors & pictures don’t lie. Neither do fat calipers. But the weight scale can become your worst enemy by misleading you and killing your motivation. Examples:
Carbs & Water– Carbs bind to water. So eating less carbs will make you lose weight: water loss. This is why you lose so much weight on a diet like Atkins the first 2 weeks: it’s mostly water. Of course, increasing your carb intake will make you gain weight again: water retention.
Muscle Gains & Fat Loss- You’ll gain muscle while losing fat when you get into strength training. But on the weight scale it will look like you’re not making progress: your body-weight doesn’t change. Track your body fat using a fat caliper and you’ll see your body fat is going down.

**The body fat testing fee at the start and finished are included in your entry fee. We will measure body fat with “The Bod Pod”. For those of you that aren’t familiar with it here is all the information you need.
You enter the 8 week challenge by investing 2 payments of $150
Once we reach our 30 client minimum we will then schedule everyone for their mandatory body fat testing appointment.
After we get the test results the trainers will do a draft and create teams to make them as fair as possible.
Once the teams are set each trainers name will be randomly picked out of a hat and that trainer will be in charge of those clients
For the next 8 weeks that trainer is responsible for leading that team and coaching that team to drop as much body fat as possible.
Once the teams are set everyone on the same team will have each others contact info to keep each other accountable throughout the contest and encourage each other as well as work together to work towards the main goal.
Even if you do personal training with one trainer but another trainer is your leader you will still train with your original trainer but the new team leader is in charge of everything else for the next 8 weeks or it’s up to the trainers to discuss the plan.
Throughout the 8 weeks the NL trainer and team leader is their for you to help you with nutrition, advice, coaching, stuff to do inside and outside the gym, accountability, support and anything else you need to help you get to your goal. Please take full advantage of that!
At the end of 8 weeks we will set appointments for everyone to get their body fat measure again.
Once everyone has been tested we will combine all the starting body fat percentages together and see which team lost the highest percent of body fat based on their combined total team body fat percentage number.
