  2. Goals determined: Participants will clearly define their individual ‘S.M.A.R.T.’ goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely) for the 12 week period.
  3. Assessments taken: Will be done in the first and last weeks of the competition that are pertinent to your goals and analyzing positive change.  
    • Body composition: A series of skinfolds (3), circumferences (3), and 2 Way Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA), as well as a front/side pictures to show pre/post changes (don’t worry, we will adjust this process to your personal comfort level).
