Why Do Challenge Groups Work?

Everyone knows someone who has tried to lose weight and failed. Or maybe they've lost weight and then gained it all back plus some.

Everyone knows someone who has vowed to get in better shape. They joined gyms, started running, or bought home workout equipment or a set of home workout DVDs but then never used them or kept up with their routines. For many people this stop-start process is repeated over and over. Why then are Beachbody Challenge Groups so successful?

The answer is easy and can be summed up with one four letter word:

When you combine the four elements of N.E.S.I., which are available exclusively with Team Beachbody Challenge Groups, you have the best chance ever of being successful with your health, fitness and weight management goals.

Let's break it down:

N stands for Nutrition - Nutrition is the base and inarguably the single most important element in any fitness, health, and weight management program. You cannot exercise your way to fitness if you eat garbage.

In some respects it's tougher today than ever before to eat right because of all the processed foods, genetically modified foods, high fructose corn syrup pretty much everywhere it seems, plus the ever-greater presence of toxins and pesticides in our food.

On the other hand this is the best of times for great nutrition because of a growing awareness of the need for proper nutrition. Better foods and ingredients are available in greater variety and quantity than ever before - you just have to know where and how to find them.

Also, for Team Beachbody, we have an edge, we have Shakeology. Shakeology is the absolute hands down best way to have the healthiest meal of the day that is not only a meal replacement, but also a proven source of antioxidants, phytonutrients, digestive enzymes, vitamins and minerals plus a whole raft of superfood ingredients that are so good for you that several of the more than 70 ingredients in Shakeology have been the basis all by themselves for successful products.

Everyone in a Team Beachbody Challenge Group drinks Shakeology for one meal a day. Our cravings are reduced, our energy is increased, and we just feel better. Shakeology is such a key that some people start their commitment to health and fitness just by drinking Shakeology daily. No other shake in the world stands up to the combination of healthy ingredients in Shakeology.

E stands for Exercise - Exercise is absolutely required in order to get healthy and fit. You can lose or gain weight through nutrition alone, but the healthy way to manage your weight and get fit at the same time is to incorporate an appropriate exercise program.

Beachbody has dozens of home exercise programs all set to go for Challenge Groups. Everyone in a Team Beachbody Challenge Group works out according to the program schedule with a Beachbody exercise program, ranging from three to seven days a week. There are programs for all fitness levels and workout style preferences. Challenge Groups last from 21 to 90 days, depending on the exercise program.

At the end of a Challenge Group period many people repeat with the same program in another group or move on to another program either to progress in the physical challenge or just for variety.

No one else in the world offers the quality and variety of serious home exercise programs that are included in the selection for Team Beachbody Challenge Groups.

S stands for Support - The best nutritional plan and the best exercise programs won't make a difference without support.

Support can look differently for different people. Some do best with a workout buddy, others want an accountability group. Some people look for fitness instructors or personal trainers to show them what to do and keep them on track.

With Team Beachbody Challenge Groups we've combined the best of the best with multiple layers of support. Everyone in a Challenge Group is a member of the Team Beachbody SuperGym and logs their workouts online - instantly seeing who else in the world is working out and sharing the ability to chat after the workout and to converse via forums and message boards with some of the top nutrition and fitness experts.

In addition each Challenge Group is led by one or more Team Beachbody Coaches whose role is to provide support, encouragement, and accountability to Challenge participants.

Perhaps the most powerful factor in this multi-level support structure are the other members of the Challenge Group. Each day Challenge Group members log in to a private Facebook group page to mention their own workouts, to support and encourage each other, and often to post photos of their meals, share Shakeology recipes, and even post before, after, and progress photos of themselves during the Challenge.

No other company or organization in the world offers this rich a support component.

I stands for Incentives - This fourth element is often a suprise. I mean, after all, getting fit, healthy, and at the right body weight should be enough, right? Well maybe, but Beachbody makes it even more appealing through The Beachbody Challenge. All members of Team Beachbody Challenge Groups register for The Beachbody Challenge. Participants at the end of Challenge Group submit before and after photos, measurements, and their personal story and are eligible for daily $500 prizes, monthly $1,000 awards, plus quarterly and annual prizes up to $100,000!

As time goes on we know more and more people who win these awards - I was honored to win $1,000 as the male winner in my age category (50+) in November 2012.

So that's it. Nutrition, Exercise, Support, and Incentives. A winning combination that spells success for Team Beachbody Challenge participants like no other program in the world!

We run multiple Team Beachbody Challenge Groups every month for various programs. If I've peaked your interest, get in touch and let's get YOU started on your road to personal success with fitness, health, and weight management.
