Spring Exercise and Recipe Challenge 2018-07-03T17:14:51+00:00

Following the success of our Weight Loss Challenge at the beginning of this year, we’ve decided to do another challenge, this time gearing us up for spring and summer. Join us for our Spring Exercise and Recipe Challenge! Similar to our previous challenge, we hope that creating this Ideal Protein community for you will provide the motivation and accountability that is so necessary to success. And it’ll be fun!

The way it works is easy:

  1. Let your coach know that you want to participate in the Spring Exercise and Recipe Challenge. The challenge starts on May 15th.
  2. Join our Facebook group to connect with and support other clients who are doing the challenge with you.
  3. During your weekly weigh-in, let your coach know what you’ve done that week. You’ll accumulate points for doing things you do on a regular basis, like walking, meal prepping, and more! You can check out the points breakdowns below.
  4. The people with the most points will win prizes! Check out our awesome prizes below.

Remember, it’s not about how much weight you ultimately lose, but about how committed you are to your goals and how encouraging you are to the people doing this challenge with you.
