Challenge Group Best Practices
- Use My Challenge Tracker. My Challenge Tracker was designed to help you run your Challenge Groups and get your customers the best results possible. Using the app, your participants can track their workouts, Shakeology, weight, measurements and progress photos, while interacting with one another in a closed forum. Simultaneously, with the Coach Portal, you can gain insights into your participants’ daily activities to help keep everyone accountable.
- Kick off with a group meeting and set expectations. Whether in person, via Zoom or over the phone, holding an initial group meeting is a great way to set clear expectations that can define a rewarding experience for your participants. It also creates a team culture where participants can feel a sense of belonging and gain encouragement from others. Walk them through the My Challenge Tracker app, showing them how to track their activity and engage within the group. Tell them what they need to do to be successful (i.e., check in daily, drink Shakeology, set realistic short-term and long-term goals, etc.). Share how you and others in the group will support them along the way.
- Share the Team Beachbody meal prep guides. These guides are tailored to different calorie needs and make meal prep simple, providing grocery lists and step-by-step instructions for planning breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks — one week at a time.
- Lead by example with our #1 Vital Behaviour, be proof the products work. Track your activity and share your experiences daily, so your participants can replicate actions that will help them succeed.
- Connect and check in with participants constantly. Hold a weekly zoom call for your challengers to ask questions and share successes and challenges to increase group engagement and morale. Additionally, if you notice someone hasn’t been logging their activity, reach out to them individually to make sure everything is okay and encourage them to get back on track. They’ll be more likely to stick with the challenge if they know someone is holding them accountable.
- Surprise your participants; throw down a challenge. Whether it’s a day where everyone completes 10 push-ups, shares their favourite meal photo and recipe, or does the most squats in a minute, small prizes or contests can help keep your participants engaged and motivated.
- Recognize, Recognize, Recognize! Another Coach vital behaviour, it’s key to recognize the positive changes and healthier lifestyle choices people make, no matter how small. Recognition keeps challengers engaged and motivated. Consider designating a day of the week to highlight someone’s success, or, better yet, do it daily.
- Encourage participants to submit their results to the Beachbody Challenge contest. Everyone loves free stuff. Make sure your participants enter the contest once they complete their challenge to get rewarded with a free completion prize, and a chance to win some cash.
- Continue with the momentum even after your Challenge Group ends. Check out these tips for effectively wrapping up your Challenge Groups and getting your participants to join your next challenge – or transition to become a Coach.

Week 0(Week prior to challenge start date)
Welcome to our CIZE Challenge Group! I'm so excited for us to get started on our fitness journey together. The next few weeks are going to be challenging, but you will have such a blast learning the moves that you'll forget you're actually working out—and losing weight! I will be posting on this page daily, and I encourage everyone to post and comment on the page as well.
Here's a list of questions to introduce yourselves to one another. Paste your answers in the "comment" section!
- Where do you live?
- What's your occupation?
- Which Shakeology flavour are you drinking?
- Name one part of your body you'd like to work on the most.
- What kind of dance experience do you have?
- Why did you choose CIZE?
If you haven’t already, log in to Beachbody On Demand, where you’ll be able to stream your CIZE workouts and access the Eat Up! Guide, calendars, and other support documents. If you're still waiting for your programme to be shipped, this is your chance to get a head start and look forward to what's to come!
Now that you've either gotten your Challenge Pack or logged in to Beachbody On Demand, here are some tips to get familiar with CIZE:
1. Start by checking out all of the materials in your kit
2. Read the Get Started Guide
3. Read the Eat Up! Guide, which includes the meal plan
4. Go grocery shopping so you can make the healthy recipes from the meal plan
Now it's time to choose your daily workout schedule! Remember, there are two different calendars you can follow—the Beginner Calendar and the Advanced Calendar. With the Beginner Calendar, you can go at your own pace and track your progress. With the Advanced Calendar, you have a set schedule that tells you which workout to do every day.
I recommend you block off those times on your calendar so nothing else can get in your way. No excuses!
Which calendar will you be using?
If you don't already have the colour-coded portion-control containers mentioned in the EAT UP! meal plan, you might want to consider adding them—they're not required but are a great way to keep your eating on track: https://teambeachbody.com/shop/-/shopping/BBPrtnFixContCA?referringRepId=yourID
Don't forget to take your "before" photos and measurements!
Log on to BeachbodyChallenge.com and sign up to take the Beachbody Challenge. At the end of our 4 weeks, you will get a FREE CIZE IT UP tank top!
To enter, take your "before" pictures and measurements, and record them. You'll be amazed by your results in the end!

Okay, so I love my Shakeology with a simple banana, water, and ice but sometimes I'm craving something a little special. My go-to to satisfy my extra-sweet tooth without going too overboard is this delicious recipe:
Total Time: 5 min.
Prep Time: 5 min.
Cooking Time: None
Yield: 1 serving
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology
2 tsp. ground whole wheat graham cracker crumbs, divided use
1 cup ice
1. Place almond milk, vanilla extract, Shakeology, 1 tsp. graham cracker crumbs, and ice in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.
2. Pour into a serving glass and garnish with remaining 1 tsp. graham cracker crumbs; serve immediately.

Can you believe we have already made it to Week 3? How is everyone feeling?
Are you sabotaging your weight loss? https://tbbcoa.ch/299Y5mY
Sometimes it takes something extra to get you where you want to be. This morning, I was feeling tired and wanted to skip my morning workout. But I didn’t. Instead, I made myself Shakeology and nailed my workout. Sometimes starting off my day with a delicious guilt-free shake keeps me honest in my food choices later in the day. Anyone else feel the same?
