Welcome to FIT CLUB Sandi Style!!!
hope you will embark on a quest with me as I endeavor to become more
HEALTHY and include more ACTIVITY in my life and make BETTER food and
Here is a basic rundown of what the program will involve. Of course there WILL BE PRIZES!!!!
This program is a 10 week program. During the 10 weeks you will be responsible for checking in with SteepleMedia Fit Club 6 days a week.
In addition I would like to include a 26 wk, 52 wk and 104 wk check up.
Five times a week I will select one of the following goal behaviors for you to report to me on:
Water count day (email me how many glasses you drank) I will ask you this once a week.
Exercise Day (email me mins of exercise) I will ask you about exercise 3 times a week on random days.
Healthy Choices Day - email me a food substitute you used, a change you made or a food you resisted that day. I will ask you this once a week.
In addition, one day a week will be Baseline Day - you must complete
the baseline exercises (outlined below) and email me results. This will
be on the same day each week so that you can plan time for it.
For example, on Tuesday I may ask you to report how many glasses of
water you drank on Monday. The number answer submitted will count as
points towards your total. If you do not submit your data, you will
score a zero. You will have until 9pm EST each day to send your data.
The aim is to drink more water every day, exercise a little every day
and make healthier food choices every day. The weekend counts as one
day - you can have one weekend day off if you choose.
I do not reward people for over doing it. The goal is to make
reasonable and permanent changes to your lifestyle. Exercising for 4
hrs a day is not sustainable. Therefore, I have maximum points that can
be allocated for each activity. I will not tell you what the maximum
is, but all contestants who go above that number will earn the same
number of points.
Example, if the maximum number of glasses of water is set at 8, then a
contestant who drinks 8 glasses of water that day will earn 8 points
and a person who drinks 22 glasses of water would also only earn 8
points. However, a person who only drinks one glass will only earn one
Week 1 - Baseline data - no need to do extra, try to do norm, this is for improvement comparison
Weeks 2 - 8 The competition. Six days a week you will email results
Week 10 - Follow up journal - all contestants must write a blog post about the experience

exercises, you must let me know before beginning the program. If the
inability is sincere, for that particular exercise you will be given
the average number of points gained by other contestants, by default. If you can substitute any exercise you can't do with one you can, that's even better.
FREE PASS CHALLENGES
On occasion, I will issue a special FREE PASS challenge. The winner of
this challenge will receive a free pass, which you can use on any day
