From the way you look and feel about yourself, to your relationships, self-esteem, work performance, and overall happiness, you can't put a price tag on it."



Challenge Handbook

COMPLETELY NEW AND UPDATED FOR 2018! Unlike previous years, you will be given your handbook the moment you sign-up for the Challenge, giving you time to plan and prepare in advance of your start date. Your handbook features a detailed eating plan that is CUSTOMIZED for you through a short quiz. It will easily help you plan how to eat right based on your individual needs, favorite foods, and goals. You'll know exactly HOW MUCH food to eat when it comes to your protein, carbs, veggies, fruits, and healthy fats to lose weight (or gain weight/muscle) and transform your body. What's more is you'll be given planning sheets and food lists. This nutrition plan is not mandatory, nor is it a "diet". It's a proven food lifestyle derived from the Beachbody Portion Fix eating plan, suited for all eating preferences. 70% of your results come from healthy nutrition, which is the biggest focus of this year's new and improved handbook. In addition, the handbook has exercise strategies for you to follow based on your personal goals.

FREE - One on One Challenge Training Session

Your one-hour complimentary Challenge training session is designed for you to review your Challenge handbook one-on-on with a certified trainer and understand what's best for you to see results. The session will confirm your understanding of the nutrition plan AND best workout strategy for you to follow in achieving your 12-week transformation goals. Your private session will also take you through a personal workout and make sure you're dialed-in and ready to go with no unanswered questions. To schedule your free session, click the link above and submit the online form, "My Challenge Goals". You must first sign-up for the Challenge and submit "My Challenge Goals" above before you're able to schedule your free Challenge training session.

FREE - Before/After Photos (optional) & Measurements

Photos are not required to participate in the Challenge. However, to be eligible for cash prizes as a challenge participant, you must take your before/after photos and measurements to document your 12-week transformation. We provide a photographer and private setting at the gym for you to do so quickly and easily on both your start date and finish date. You're in and out of the room in less than 5 minutes, with the room staffed by 3 female employees. Again, if you choose to do measurements only (no photos), you will not be eligible to win any prize money, but you can still do the Challenge.

Judging to determine the Challenge winners is done based on a review of the final photos (faces are covered), measurements, and final essay submitted by the participants. Judging is done separately for males and females in the following age groups: 18-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60+. But don't do it for the money. Do it for the priceless life changing transformation you might undergo!

Sign Up


When you arrive on your start date for your "before" photos and measurements, you'll be given a Gold's Gym Challenge t-shirt, Shakeology shaker cup, and free packet of Shakeology. If you choose to buy a Shakeology shake from the Gold's Gym shake bar in the future, give your shaker cup to the shake staff. He or she will fill your cup and discount $1.00 from the purchase price each time.
