    Why do I need to do a minimum of 15 Classes? Should I do more?

    You are required to attend at least 15 classes over the course of the competition. Any classes from Day 1 of your completed registration to Day 45 of the contest count toward your goal.

    Classes are counted individually and not by the 24 hour period. So, if you attend 2 classes on any given day...you have attended 2 classes toward your goal.

    15 classes seems to be the sweet spot for most Members to create their new fit habits. They get over the hump of trying something new, get into a routine, and really take off! Some members go once a day for the entire competition, while others go 3 days a week!

    All classes will be verified with your studio. Please be mindful of your personal limits; do what feels healthiest for you, your lifestyle, and your family.

    Before making any huge changes to diet and exercise routines, a visit to your doctor is never a bad idea.
