Desire Fitness Weight Loss Challenge F.A.Q.

How are weigh-ins and measurements done?

First weigh-in- Date TBD

Last weigh-in- Date TBD

Weigh-ins are done first thing in the morning, before eating, and with limited clothing on. You will also take measurements of your neck, chest, shoulders, bicep, waist (top and middle), hips, and quad. Before and after photos will also be taken.

Your weight, measurements, and progress photos must be uploaded to your private portal. 

What do I wear for my weigh ins?

It is recommended for women to wear a sports bra and short shorts or a bikini and for men to wear fitted shorts. To ensure the most accurate measurements do not wear baggy clothing. You will wear the same clothing for all your weigh-ins. 

How are the winners determined?


Winners are determined by the percentage of weight lost. This gives everyone a fair opportunity to win, no matter what your starting weight is. Body measurements are also done in case there has been a tie. 

How is the prize money calculated?

Prize money is based on total participants registered in the challenge. 10% of each participant's registration fee will be put into the prize pot. 

The more participants, the bigger the cash prizes! 

1st place- 50% of the pot

2nd place- 30% of the pot

Can I hire Desire Fitness as a personal trainer?

Yes. Desire Fitness is offering a 10% discount on personal training to anyone who has registered in the challenge.

There will also be a weekly bootcamp starting in January that will be available for participants to join.

What is a Fits Your Macros diet plan?


Fits Your Macros is an easy and flexible diet plan that is based around consuming a carefully calculated amount of Protein, Carbs, and Fats on a daily basis. This means you still get to eat your favourite foods while dieting as long as it fits within your limit. Your macros and calories will be tracked by using the Desire Fitness app.


Can I have a set menu rather than a macros diet plan?

Yes, the option for a set menu plan is available. The set menu is custom made based around the foods you enjoy to eat and doesn't require any macro counting. Your menu is tailored to your body and is an additional $75 (plus gst). 

What will my circuit work outs involve?

Your program will be a combination of strength and endurance training. Every three weeks your program will be updated in your portal. There will be 2 circuits in your portal at a time that are meant to be rotated between throughout the week. 

The minimum amount to complete is 2 work outs per week, with a max of 6 per week. There will also be optional interval cardio homework assigned. 

If I wish to stop participating in the challenge can I get a refund?

Once the challenge has started your fee will become non-refundable. This non-refundable policy is in effect because you are provided with confidential work out plans and a custom diet plan. It also ensures that the prize pot amount stays fair. 

I have injuries or illnesses, can my program be modified?

Yes, when you register please notify Desire Fitness of any injury or illness that may impede your diet or work out plan. The appropriate modifications will then be made to your program.  

I do not live in Edmonton, can I still participate?


Yes, you can still enter the challenge. However you would be responsible to do your own mandatory before and after photos, measurements, and weigh-ins. 

If you have any other questions regarding the challenge, please call 780-686-9977.
