I’m super excited to annouce that SFCF will be conducting a Fitness Challenge (the “Challenge”) on September 13, 2015. The fitness challenge is designed to help you get in the best shape of your life. We will be providing you with all the tools necessary to be successful and more importantly we will be taking on this challenge together. The enter staff will be active participants (staff will not be eligible for prizes) and will be with you every step of the way. To learn more please read below and attend our free nutrition lecture on Sunday, September 13, 2015 at 8am.
1. Contest Period:
The SFCF Fitness Challenge 2015 (the “Challenge”) lasts five weeks and begins Sunday, September 13 from 9 am – 12 pm and runs through Sunday, October 18, 2015.
2. How to Enter:
To enter the SFCF Fitness Challenge 2015, you need to register by signing our SFCF Fitness Challenge sign-in sheet. A fee of $65 is required for an Athlete (the “Participant”) to register and participate in the SFCF Fitness Challenge 2015. This fee will cover the cost for the machine and personnel that will weigh and measure each Athlete. You must complete and follow all instructions on the measurement sheet. Every Participant must be an active member of a SFCF. ONCE YOU SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY, IT BECOMES THE PROPERTY OF SFCF. Entry Fees are non-refundable.
3. Participation in the Challenge/Requirements:
In order to complete the Challenge and qualify for prizes, you must complete all the requirements of this five (5) week long Challenge as set forth here. These requirements include completing 2 standardized benchmark workouts, completing a minimum of 5 WODs and taking before and after body measurements with the Inbody 570 machine, recording your weight at the beginning and the end of the Challenge. To better your chances of success you should also be setting and tracking goals, trying new recipes, tracking lifestyle markers, and submitting a video and written experience.
At any time SFCF reserves the right to add to the requirement list, if equal notification and time for completion is provided to all Participants.
Deadlines will be strictly enforced and in order to keep the Challenge fair and equitable for all Participants, special exceptions will not be made for any reason, regardless of circumstances, for missed deadlines.
SFCF reserves the right to extend Challenge deadlines as long as the changes are universally applied and communicated to all Participants and Affiliates. SFCF shall not accelerate or in any way change Challenge deadlines to earlier dates. Deadline extensions shall be made in the sole and absolute discretion of the SFCF Staff when they determine that it is beneficial to the success of the Challenge as a whole. This right may also be exercised in the case of regional disasters or emergencies which threaten the ability of a significant number of Participants to finish the Challenge.
5. Participation, Judging, Validations, and Sanctions
In order to complete the Challenge and be eligible for all listed prizes, Participants must be members of SFCF. All WOD scores, before and after body measurements (the “Body Measurements”), and starting and ending weigh-ins (the “Weight”) must be judged, taken, and/or validated by the SFCF Staff or it’s designee. All validations will be made by the SFCF Head Coach.
Each of the workouts during the course of the Challenge will have RX and scaled versions. All efforts will be made to make the WODs inclusive. If you are unable to complete a given WOD at a specific level you can choose to complete it at a level that you and our coaching staff determine most appropriate. The goal is for everyone in the Challenge to be safe, and to make physical improvements.
In terms of earning points or winner prizes there may potentially be an advantage to completing each workout at the highest level possible. The key here is to push yourself, Challenge yourself, and don’t put yourself in a box defined by a label.
The staff will provided details on the scoring on the day of body measurement.
7. Body Measurements
During the Challenge all Participant will be using the Inbody 570 and a tape measure to record your measurements. Instructions and information on the Inbody 570 will be available at the front desk.
