The NUTRISHOP Weight Loss/Muscle Gain Challenge is almost here! It’s the chance to not only kick off your New Year’s resolutions the right way, but also an opportunity to win NUTRISHOP credit toward your favorite supplements.
The rules are simple: All contestants will need only to weigh in at either Chico NUTRISHOP store once from Jan. 7-13, and every two weeks after that to fill out a weight chart (and become eligible for the first-to-20- pounds prize). Final weigh-ins will be performed and category winners declared from March 7-13.
It is a 60-day contest designed to meet the needs of the newly rededicated and throw in some competitive drive and, of course, prizes, along the way. The men and women who lose the most fat in their age category (under 30, 30-49 and 50 and older) will win a $100 NUTRISHOP gift card. Additionally, the first participant to lose 20 pounds of fat (or, for the muscle gain contest, gain 10 pounds of muscle) will win a $100 NUTRISHOP gift card, and all participants will receive a free fitness meal plan, shaker cup and gym towel. Additionally, participants will enjoy 10 percent off purchases during the contest. Winners of each category will finally be entered in the company’s corporate weight loss challenge, where they will be eligible for even more prizes.
And, if that doesn’t motivate you quite enough, we’ve got plenty of great success stories of customers who have seen the results firsthand. Check out this story from Christina, who lost 60 pounds, and take a look at her before and after photos.
A 22-year-old student, Christina had been used to a fast metabolism and thin physique. She could get away with eating basically whatever she wanted, with no consequences to her thin figure.
Things changed when she had her son, however, and she found she struggled to drop the baby weight as fast as she wanted to.
“I had the mentality that I could gain as much as I wanted while I was pregnant,” she says, “and I could just exercise it off. That was not the case.”
Christina decided to see what NUTRISHOP could do for her, and 14 months later, has lost the baby weight and an additional 15 pounds. Total, Christina estimates she’s lost 60 pounds, with 20 from January alone.
“When you’re going from being able to eat whatever you want and not having a weight problem to just looking at ice cream and gaining weight,” she jokes, “that’s the hardest adjustment. But NUTRISHOP helps you with what to eat and when, making the lifestyle switch and trying to make the better choices when you can.”
Christina began with a customized diet plan at NUTRISHOP, and also went to work in the gym while supplementing with the Hypercor-Somnilean-Detox stack specifically aimed at fat-burning. Now, she’s dropped another shirt size and two pant sizes and says she continues to get compliments on her improving physique.
“I do get a lot of people telling me, ‘Wow, I can definitely tell from the past five months that you’ve done a lot and come pretty far,’” she says. “I’m toning up and I feel really good.”
On top of being a full-time student, Christina works part-time. Even with that busy schedule, she’s been able to get results with NUTRISHOP’s dietary advice and a new approach to exercising — she does it whenever she can, even if it just means using her son as a free weight on her shoulders for squats at home! She says she would have struggled with the motivation in the first place if the help she’d gotten wasn’t so friendly.
“They’re super-nice, and they want to help you,” Christina says. “You think, ‘Oh, man, they’re all these super-fit people’ and you might be intimidated, but their friendliness is a big factor. They spend so much time with you and want to help you.
“Once you get the plan and the encouragement, you almost feel bad if you don’t do it,” Christina continues. “They’ve done so much to help, you’ve got to follow through on your end. That definitely helps.”
