Q: What does the "challenge" entail?  Will I have to be part of a competition?

A: You'll be challenging yourself to finish the year strong!  No feats of strength or public performances required.  Instead, you'll be encouraged to set your own goals--in or outside of the gym--and work towards them for the duration of the challenge. This is all about being your best self and winning the week!  

We'll provide motivation and support through weekly videos and daily Facebook Group activity. Each Monday, you'll receive an email, with Kevin Bracy giving you your focus area for that week via video.  During the week you can access the private Facebook Group for daily affirmation, support, community, and extra incentives.  

We strongly encourage you to participate in the Win the Week Facebook Group for accountability, as well.  Facebook Group members will have the chance to win weekly incentives.

Q.  How do I win the challenge?  (I'm really into winning!)

A: For those who are driven by competition, we will be tallying bonus Perks Points to determine an overall winner of the Win the Week Challenge.  The overall challenge winner will receive a FREE Cal Fit 12 month membership. Challenge bonus Perks points can be earned by checking into a Cal Fit location and taking group fitness classes at Cal Fit and Madison Avenue Radiant Yoga Studio.  Whether or not you earn the most Perks Points, we hope you'll celebrate your own accomplishments along the way as you progress towards personal goals.

Q:  When does the Win the Week Challenge take place?

A: The challenge begins Monday, November 4th and goes until Sunday, December 22nd.

Q: How will I get my journal and/or t-shirt?

A: These will be shipped directly to you.

Q: Do I have to go to the gym to participate in Win the Week?

A: No.  How you participate is up to you, but we're here to help you discover just how fun fitness can be by doubling the Cal Fit Perks Points for each visit to the gym and Cal Fit group fitness classes during the challenge.  Participants who earn Perks Points through gym and class attendance will be eligible to be the overall winner of the Win the Week Challenge. 

Q: Does my non-member guest access include childcare?

A: YES!  Your children will be able to enjoy Cal Fit's quality childcare options while you make use of our equipment, classes, and other amenities.

Q: How do I register to participate in the Win the Week Challenge?

A:  Registration is open from Monday, October 14th until Wednesday, October 30th.  Fair warning:  if you snooze you lose on this opportunity.  Please make sure to register before the end of day on October 30th so that you won't miss out on all the fun!  Watch your email and our social media channels for registration reminders.

Q:  What do I need to be able to participate in Win the Week?

A:  Not much!  Registration is required for participation. To fully enjoy the motivation and support of weekly videos and the private Facebook group, you will need computer access, an email address, and a Facebook account.  (No Facebook account?  Click here to learn how to get one.)  If you want access to the private Facebook Win the Week Challenge Group, you will provide your Facebook profile information when you register. 

Since information about the challenge and motivational videos will be provided via email, please make sure to update your Cal Fit email preferences, particularly if you've opted out from our emails in the past.  You can update your preferences here

Q: I'm not a Cal Fit member, but I would like club access.  How does that work?

A: You'll receive a 7 week guest pass to use during the challenge.  Your guest pass will be entered into our system and available for use from November 4 - December 22.  To ensure you receive the best service possible, your first visit as a guest must be during the hours of 9 AM - 9 PM, when a club manager is available to assist you. Bring your drivers' license with you for proof of identity, and be prepared to sign a waiver and have your picture taken.  If you have children that will be enjoying our Kidz Klub area, this is the best time to get them entered into our system, too.

Q: Are there any age limits for participation?

A: Win the Week Challenge is open to ages 18 and above.  

Q: What if I want both a Win the Week t-shirt and a Gratitude Journal?

A:  Good news!  You can have both! One is included in the price of your registration.  During registration, you have the option to purchase the other one for just $10.  Remember, these items will be shipped directly to you.

Q: Who is Kevin Bracy?  And how can he help me?

A: We're delighted to introduce you to Kevin Bracy.  Kevin is a Sacramento native and one of our members' favorite group fitness instructors.  But more than that, he's a nationally recognized motivational entertainer.  He's also an executive producer, speaking coach, and the author of Scared Great: How to Steer Your Fear Towards Greatness, as well as two youth books, The Top 10 Tips for Teen Success and Greatness Leaves Clues. Over his 22 year career, Kevin has been privileged to speak to millions of people across America.  We're thrilled that Kevin is sharing his energy, expertise, and ideas with us throughout the Win the Week Challenge.

Q:  Perks Points are very important to me.  When will I get my Perks Points?

A: All Cal Fit members (and Win the Week Challenge non-member guests) receive points to reward a variety of actions, including club check-ins (once daily) and attending group fitness classes (unlimited).  During the challenge, Perks Points for check-ins and classes will be doubled, as a special bonus incentive.  You will receive points as you normally would, but the bonus points will be tracked throughout the challenge to determine an overall challenge winner by a third party.  Bonus Perks Points will be applied to your Perks account 7-10 business days after the challenge ends.

Q: I was injured/moved/lost interest and can't finish the Win the Week Challenge.  Now what?

A: You'll still be able to access the motivational videos and resources from the Win the Week Challenge Facebook group.  We encourage you to utilize these resources in the future as you work towards future goals.  Sorry, no refunds will be issued.
