Cost to Compete
$129 or $99 for early birds, before midnight on March 15th 2013. Deals and discounts.
Included in your entry fee:- Ticket for the Awards Night at Chateau on the Park in Christchurch, the chance to share in more than $10,000 of prizes and weekly tips, personalized for you, to keep you on track.
Other costs: There’s no supplements, gym memberships, weird fitness gizmo’s, pre-packed meals or infomercial crap to buy. You will however need to see a Personal Trainer (PT) once a month. Details below.
Entrants are required to see a Personal Trainer (PT) a minimum of once every 4 weeks.
Why see a PT
A PT will measure your improvements and deliver a report to the judges at the end. Only a qualified PT will be able to do the requisite tests accurately and put together the type of report that is required.
Using a PT ensures that what you do training wise is specific to you and this plays a huge part in why 20 Week entrants succeed.
It would be negligent for us to prescribe one exercise programme for all entrants. To advise people to just go out and skip rope, take up running or pump weights and expect that to work is unrealistic and dangerous.
A PT can make sure that what YOU do gets YOU to where YOU want to go, injury free and as fast as possible. While books and apps and DVDs and packaged gizmos can provide motivation this is their downfall , they are not sufficiently individualized for you. That individualized advice plays a major role in why we are so successful and in 2012 93% of entrant feedback said they regarded themselves as ‘successful’.
Prices of PTs
PT prices can vary greatly which is why we can’t include the cost of them into an entry fee. Many offer a free first session or 3 sessions for $59, see Trainers Page.
If you think you cannot afford a PT consider this:- people who have used PTs in previous competitions have told us that they now spend between $40 and $100 a week less in other areas of their life because of the healthier lifestyle they adopted by having a trainer.
Physical improvements to the extent that we often see save entrants big dollars in the future too. Less medical complications means another $10,000 a year could be spent having holidays in years to come instead of on hospital care.
PTs: You can choose any PT to help you providing they are REPs registered. (REPs is an independent national registration body that ensures PT are qualified and insured). A list of PTs that entrants have previously used can be found by clicking here.
