2018 Transformation Challenge

If you are fed up with feeling lousy, looking flabby, and barely enough energy to get out of bed in the morning… Here’s your chance to change all that.

Introducing the Second Annual Draper Lifestyle Transformation Challenge, Where 10 local residents team up with a professional trainer, two times a week, for 11 weeks.

The primary goal of the Transformation Challenge is to help encourage our Draper community to enjoy the incredible physical, mental, and psychological health benefits that come from an active lifestyle. In this Transformation Challenge, we will highlight several different ways to start becoming more active, including pilates, kickboxing, athletic conditioning, strength training, and more.

Here’s the skinny: 10 lucky residents will be selected to partner with a professional training partner for three months, from Thursday, January 11 until Thursday March 29, 2018. Each participant will work with their training partner twice a week during the 11 week period. Contestants will also have access to medical professionals, nutritionists, and a support team along the way to help with their personal transformation.

Five of the contestants will be selected by our panel based on a variety of different factors and the other five will be selected at random at the launch party. In order to be considered, you must complete an online application. To be eligible at the launch party, you must be present to win.
