Challenge Group Guide


Get content you can customize and share with your Country Heat® Challenge Groups.

        Getting Started

  1. Create a Challenge Group in the My Challenge Tracker Coach Portal, and invite your participants to download the My Challenge Tracker App. Alternatively, you can set up a private Facebook® group.
  2. Review the Product Training Guide for everything you need to know about Country Heat.
  3. Share this message from Autumn with your challengers.
  4. Post Week 0 topics to your group's feed.

        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 Behavior, 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. 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 favorite 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 behavior, 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.

Day 4
Success Story

Check out this transformation! Lisa lost 18 pounds and 9.75 inches in 30 days with Country Heat. She was able to use the modifier when necessary and keep the moves low-impact, and she still saw great results!

"Country Heat allowed me to change my mindset about exercise and working out. You can have fun doing something other than playing sports. A person doesn’t have to be in condition to get in better shape—you can start right where you are (everyone can dance!) and progress from there. One of the best things about Country Heat is that it's easy on your joints. I saw amazing results all three months doing low-impact moves. On some moves I could increase the intensity, but on other moves I kept my movements low-impact and saw results."
—Lisa L.

Results vary depending on starting point and effort.

Day 5
Shakeology

If you’re drinking your Shakeology, you might be noticing a few changes. For me, it was increased energy, which I loved. And I know I’m not alone here—in fact, 86% of people in a survey of daily Shakeology drinkers feel the same way! (Based on a survey of 2,769 Shakeology users, including independent Team Beachbody Coaches, who drank Shakeology 5 or more times per week and exercised at least 3 times per week.)

What positive changes have you noticed since starting to drink Shakeology?

Success Story

Talk about inspiration! Millie lost 26 pounds and 31 inches in 90 days of Country Heat! Though she never had a dance lesson in her life and this was the first workout program she tried, she found the workouts easy to do. She said following Autumn was easy, because she broke down the steps into easy-to-follow directions.

"I did not expect to see such results from this fun workout. I also didn't expect to sweat so much! The music was great. It was fun and easy to dance to. Country Heat is something I would recommend to everyone! It is simple, fun, energizing, and from young to old, women to men—everyone can see results and add a little spunk to every day!"

Day 21
Success Story

Barbara G. lost 30.5 lbs.! She had the following to say!

"The workouts are great because they are easy to learn, but can be adjusted so that you push yourself more as you get used to the steps. It helped me keep going and push more each time. I was able to stick with Country Heat easier than other programs, I think because the workouts were interesting and never felt like they got stale. And I loved the music! It was fun to get to know the songs and steps so well. I find that they really timed the dance moves perfectly to the music, which made it really fun." —Barbara G.

Day 25
Success Story

I have yet another story of success to share with you: Edward lost 46.5 pounds and 30.5 inches in 90 days with Country Heat. After completing the program, he is feeling happier and healthier, and notices his new, slimmer shape and flat belly!

"The workouts are fun and easy, but you can modify up or down to increase or decrease [the intensity]. Sometimes I followed the modifier, but once I got in better shape, it was rarely needed. The music is great (and I wasn't a fan of country music before). I really like 'Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy).' The beat made it fun and easy to do the moves. Country Heat is fun, easy, effective, and you can start no matter what level of fitness you're at." —Edward J.

Results vary depending on starting point and effort.
