1. Form a Team
Gather up your friends and colleagues around campus to form a team. Teams of 4 are required for participation and should include 1 Team Captain. All teams should be formed prior to registration and each team will need a team name for identification. Every participant will need to complete the online registration form. Individuals who are not on a team should indicate that they are a "free agent" on the registration form. All "free agents" will be assigned to a team by AhealthyU.

Complete this online registration form. Every participant in the Weight Loss Challenge must complete the online registration form. Deadline for registration is Friday, November 2.
To participate in the challenge, each member of the team is required to sign a liability waiver. Click here to download the AhealthyU Liability Waiver.

3. Weigh In
During the first week of the program all participants will be required to weigh in with AhealthyU. At the first weigh-in, AhealthyU will determine a goal weight that each participant should aim for by the end of the program. This goal weight will be based on BMI charts and healthy weight loss guidelines. Standings will be determined based on the percentage of weight loss goal that each team has achieved. Individual weights will not be shared with others.
The greatest loss that can be counted per person in one week is 2 lbs. Any weight loss that causes a person to fall under their weight goal will not be counted.
Participants who fall within the healthy BMI range at the initial weigh in will be challenged to maintain their current weight. A maximum weight loss of 2% by people in this group will be counted towards the team total; all weight gained will be factored in to the team total.
Participants will be required to weigh in weekly with AhealthyU for the duration of the program. See the schedule below for dates, times, and locations of weigh-ins. Missed weigh-ins will result in a 2-pound penalty for that individual.
