time you are competing in the contest.
You must sign up for the contest, have before and after pictures

are not that accurate they are consistent and good for showing amounts
The use of illegal drugs will not be allowed if anyone is caught
using illegal drugs in any shape or form they will be disqualified.
will be monthly prizes every month in each category every person that
enters will get a free month if they come close, tie or due better than
I do every month.
there will be 3 categories and all monthly stuff everyone will be
competing against only me. You don’t have to beat me to win a free
month get within 10% of what I do and you will get your next month free.
There must be some improvement in order to win a free month
(example say I don’t lose any fat or even gain fat you can’t win a
fat loss if you don’t lose any fat) there must be positive results in
order for you to win a free month no matter what I do.. Only one win per
month (meaning you can’t win say in pounds of fat lost and inches
One for pounds of fat lost,
for inches lost in the waist line,
for pounds of muscle gained
will not be a category for total pounds lost because if you lose a lot
of muscle during your weight loss this is very unhealthy and
counterproductive so I will not promote for overall weight loss.
readings will be taken on electronic body fat
analysis machine calipers body fat analysis is available but for
the purpose of this contest we will be using electronic.
started my month September 23rd
and my months will run to the 23rd of each month/ my
first measurements where documented on Health and Fitness Facebook page
by video recording. I will document mine every month on the 23rd
for my measurements (within 1 day may be 22nd 23rd
I will shoot for 23rd but am going to allow myself 1
day in case of unforeseen circumstances.
competing on the one month challenge can start anytime and end for
measurements within 2 days of their starting day. Example if they start
on the 23rd then they can end between the 21st and
the 25th of the next month.
I take my readings they will be up for anyone to beat the entire next
say I have a bad month and
will be an overall competition with 4 categories in a three month you
can start any time after Monday September 26th until Nov 15th
Contest will end February 1st you must complete contest between 10 and
13 weeks .
There will be 4 categories in the 3 month contest
I will not be involved in the 3 month contest’
First category will be fat loss
Second will be inches lost in the waist line
Third will pounds of muscle gained
Fourth will be overall transformation .
body transformation for the overall competition (this will include fat
loss in combination with muscle gain and overall appearance) Just as a
general rule one pound of muscle gained will be worth about 4 pounds of
fat lost. Because it much harder to gain a pound of muscle than it is to
lose a pound of fat. Percentage will be taken into consideration for
management will have final say in any and all discrepancies
and family members are not eligible on the three month contest. One
month contest is everyone against Rick only.
These are the rules as of the starting date if for some reason
they need to be amended it will be posted at the club and on the website
as rule amendment with the date displayed.
I hope that I have everything covered if I don't and we have to
make a change just let me assure you that everything in this contest
will be ran as fair as possible.
