It was an amazing finish for our 2015 Fall Fitness Frenzy at Live Oak Fitness! Our team of 28 strong lost a total of 248.6 pounds!
We created a whole new program this fall for this year’s contest that gave equal emphasis to weight loss and exercise. In the first run of the new program, Miranda beat out two-time winner Merry for the top prize! Miranda collected a total of 321.32 points and lost over 25 pounds in 12 weeks! Merry kept Miranda working throughout the contest as she looked to make three straight Contest wins. While Merry ultimately finished 2nd overall, she collected 290.91 points and lost over 33 pounds! Sally rounded out our Top-3 with 189.88 points and lost an impressive 13 pounds in her 12-week journey.
Overall, our team lost an average of 8.9 pounds per person and our contestants who followed the program for 9 weeks or more lost an average of 16.9 pounds per person! In addition to the life changing results from the contest, many participants have continued their exercise programs and have lost even more weight since the finish of the contest!
Here are some of our most frequently asked questions for our contest:
Does the contest entry include training sessions in the studio?
No, the contest entry does not include private training session or group classes with Live Oak Fitness. We do encourage contestants to participate in our private training sessions and group classes, but it is not a requirement of the program.
I do not like (insert food you hate).
We all have foods we dislike, or just plain hate. Be it the taste or texture, there are somethings you simply can’t stomach. We encourage our contestants to try everything on our menus; you can talk with your Performance Coach to help create an alternative to any food you abhor.
Personally, don’t ask me to eat squash. Traumatic childhood memory…
I’m (vegetarian, and gluten free, and paleo, and diabetic, and allergic to peanuts). Can I still do the program?
We have worked with many contestants who come with different dietary challenges. Let your Performance Coach know your dietary needs and we can help you adapt the plans to your needs.
Do I have to give up my wine?
Would you prefer wine, or a better waistline? If it depends on the day, speak with your Performance Coach. We want to create Eating Plans that you can carry over and have success with past the 12-week contest.
I will be traveling or out of town during a portion of the contest.
We have worked with contestants remotely in six different states and had great results! Via phone, email, and text message, we have helped contestants stay accountable and reach their goals. We want to create a lifestyle that is sustainable wherever we live and travel!
Will you post my weight?
No, Live Oak Fitness will never post your individual weight.
Do I have to be a member of Live Oak Fitness to participate?
No, there is no membership fee at Live Oak Fitness. Our goal is to provide our clients with the highest level of service and rely on a quality product, not a contract or package.

Points will be totaled quarterly (every 3 weeks) to determine who the quarterly winner is. Only one quarterly winner will be named each quarter with a prize pack of gift cards from our sponsors.
There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place cash prizes for our top 3 competitors for the overall Fall Fitness Frenzy. Competitors will be ranked on the total number of points earned throughout the contest. You do not have to win a quarter or participate for the entire duration of the contest to be eligible to win the top prizes.
You can earn points for the Fall Fitness Frenzy in five different categories: Weight Points, Weigh In Day Points, Live Oak Fitness Workout Points, Online Workout Points, Workout Points, and Diary Points.
One of the main reasons we exercise, if not THE REASON, is to maintain a healthy weight! A cornerstone of our contest are the Eating Plans. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks are all thought out and prepared for you as well as a full grocery list each week! All you have to do is follow the plan and lose the weight.
Weight Points are earned from your weekly percentage of weight lost. If you weigh 200 pounds to begin the competition and lose 3 pounds in a week, or 1.5% of your body weight, you will earn 1.5 points.
If you are up in weight a week, this will negatively affect your point total. If you weigh 197 the previous week, but weigh in at 200 pounds you will lose 1.52 points that week. Your weight points are the only points that can be negative in the competition.
Points will be totaled from your week to week weight loss and not from your overall body weight lost.
Weigh in Day Points
Accountability is important, so important that you get a point for the day you come in and weigh!
You can weigh in any day during the week, but you will receive 1 point for weighing in on Monday and 0.5 points for weighing in on Tuesday.
Each week of the contest, participants will be given challenges to complete for extra points. 1.15 points can be earned for completing a Live Oak Fitness Challenge Workout. 3 workouts and exercise challenges will be issued throughout the contest each week via email, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
Every quarter, you will also have the opportunity to do a fitness test to see your progress! For each fitness test, contestants will perform a pushup, sit-up, 12-minute run, and flexibility test.
Earn 1 point for every 30 minutes of exercise you do each week. Log in exercise minutes through the Exercise Diary in your MyFitnessPal account and score points when we review your exercise log each week. Total points will be calculated for your total minutes logged each week.
Workout points can be earned by running, walking, paddle boarding, tennis, golf*, basketball, or other fitness classes you participate in.
*For a full round of golf (18 holes) in a cart, you will receive 4 Workout Points. If you walk a full round, you will receive a full allotment of points. Taking the cart nets around 1000 calories per round, in comparison a marathon runner who will burn an average of 2600 calories in four hours of running. You can potentially burn 2000 calories walking 18 holes!
Workout Points cannot be combined with points achieved through Live Oak Fitness Workouts or Online Workouts.
Food and Exercise Diary Points
Earn 1 point each week for submitting your food diary and an additional 1 point for submitting your exercise diary. For the Fall Fitness Frenzy, we will use the My Fitness Pal app as our online food and exercise diary. If you’re not tech savvy, or just dislike typing, you may use pen and paper.
