Ton of Fun Challenge – FAQ’s
I would love to join your Ton of Fun program but I cannot make the initial weigh-in on January 11th. Can I still join?
You bet! January 11th marks the start of your weight loss journey and is the first opportunity to weigh-in, but it is not your only opportunity. You can come in any time during regular business hours beginning January 11th – January 17th for your initial weigh-in.
What exactly is going to be taking place on January 11th?
Beginning at 10am you will be able to come in to register and/or complete your first weigh-in. We will have a private place for you to weigh in and we will be able to answer any questions you may have.
Coach Jennifer Bass will share lots of great info and answer your individual questions about nutrition, working out, and any general health concerns. We’ll also check to make sure we have your email address in our system correctly and answer questions about the private Ton of Fun Facebook page.
How much does the 12-week program cost?
The program is only $50 AND you will have the opportunity to earn that full $50 back in Fleet Feet gift cards (details below) plus earn some really cool prizes along the way as you succeed.
What does my program fee get me?
As a participant, you will work on your own to lose the weight, but we’ll provide support along the way:
How do I earn my registration costs back?
I’m not registered yet, is there a cut-off date?
You can register any time between now and Saturday, January 17 to qualify for all the program benefits. Weigh-ins will begins January 11th and the initial weigh-in needs to take place by January 17th at 6PM.
After January 17th, there is still plenty to gain from the program, but you will not be eligible for the 2nd of the two opportunities to earn your $25 dollars back. That said, the recipes, clinics, weekly e-newsletters, access to trainer and nutritionists, and encouragement will more than exceed the cost of the program. You’re still making a healthy decision by registering, regardless of how far we are into the program.
Can you recommend an eating program?
There is no one perfect eating program that we can recommend for everyone. Fortunately the program will give you access to a nutritionist expert that will be available to answer your questions and, if need be, work with you to find the tools you need.
I want to get moving as well. What do you recommend?
We can definitely help! Throughout the program, we will offer in-store workouts from Yoga to cross-training as well as opportunities to walk or run with the group. Depending upon your resources (access to a gym, willingness to walk outdoors, etc.) we will also offer suggestions to get you on the right track. We can also discuss key equipment and tools that will reduce your risk of injury. As part of the program you will also have access to speak to a Certified Coach that can help guide you in the right direction. Coaches will be offering lots of tips and resources available through our weekly e-newsletters and on our private program Facebook page.
When can I weigh-in?
Weekly weigh-ins will take place on Saturday mornings at 10am and also any time during our normal business hours: Monday –Wednesday - Friday - Saturday 10AM – 6PM, Tues/Thursdays 10AM – 7PM, and Sunday Noon – 5PM. We recommend that you pick a day & approximate time that work for your schedule and come on a regular basis. Not only will this encourage you to stick to the program and not miss your weigh-ins, it will make your information more consistent week to week.
I’m self-conscious about my body and weight—do I really have to be weighed in public?
Our weigh-ins will take place in our private dressing room with a Coach or Sales Associate. Our entire team is trained to use the scale and gather the information we need each week. All you need to do when you show up is let someone know you’re here for your weekly weigh-in and you can zip in and out; unless you have any questions you want to address. Once you’re weight is recorded, the Info Slip will be dropped in a box in the office. Bottom line: your privacy is our priority and our team is professional and respectful. No one will have access to your information beyond Jennifer, the Program Coordinator and Bobby/Karen, Fleet Feet Sports Owners.
What should I wear for weigh-ins?
That is up to you; although we do ask that you remain at least modestly clothed for your weigh-in. Some people will prefer to have a ‘weigh-in outfit’ for consistency purposes. That’s perfectly fine. You will be invited to remove shoes and any extras you don’t want included (i.e. cell phone, jewelry, layers, etc.). Paper towels will be available for you to put on the scale to stand on.
How many times can I weigh in each week?
One time each week. No exceptions, no taking the lowest weight. Remember, there is a competition component to this but it’s really about your health and longer term benefits.
