The Body Challenge delivers SUSTAINABLE weight loss results without extreme dieting. Not only do you learn what to eat, but you FINALLY understand where you may have gone wrong before and how to develop a healthy lifestyle beyond the eight weeks.

When you sign up for The Body Challenge you are assigned an experienced Team Captain who not only keeps you accountable but also provides weekly guidance and support to stay focused and crush your goals. Each Captain leads weekly group coaching sessions to review a variety of valuable topics and teach helpful tactics for weight loss. They are there to answer questions on private team pages, and provide helpful tips and tools. 

Prior to kick-off you receive access to our private online program portal, that sets you up with a comprehensive grocery shopping list, information on supplements and vitamins you may be interested in, and guidance on useful resources, like meal prep, exercise (optional), and overall health and wellness. 

Each week you receive a written meal plan to build your meals. The meal plans are designed to be flexible to your palette and nutrition preferences within the designated shopping list. Sorry, there isn’t an option for muffins and beer, but there are an abundance of options for protein, carbohydrates, healthy fats, and more!

You will submit a virtual weigh-in to your Team Captain every week. By submitting your weight, whether it stayed the same or the scale moved, you’re increasing your team’s chances of raising money that week. 

There are also GRAND prizes available at the end of the program – and they aren’t all based on the number on the scale! We’re looking at total transformation and know that the scale is just ONE metric of progress, and we hope you will learn that, too!

Are you ready to be leaner, healthier, and more confident? LET’S GET STARTED!

I’ve found what works for me and my body

This challenge has been extremely exciting for me. I’ve lost just about 25 lbs from April 5th, 2020 to June 26th, 2020 and I’ve found what works for me and my body and I’m working it to the max! This is my 3rd challenge and in total since September 2019, I have lost over 52 lbs! I work out everyday on MY time and stay on track with my food choices. The Fitness Asylum has literally changed my life for the better and continues to do so everyday with this amazing community!

-Randi B.

I started putting myself first.

That’s when I joined The Body Challenge in January 2020.  I became part of a group and I wasn’t alone. 

In 12 weeks I lost close to 40lbs!  I have lost inches, gained confidence, more energy and feel a whole hell of a lot better then I have before! For me this program was more than a weight-loss program it was a lifestyle change!

Body Challenge FAQs

How much weight will I lose?

This depends of course. On average, weight loss ranges from 15-35+lbs. Some might join us for the last 5-10, some might join us to maintain their lost weight. We are here to help you with whatever weight loss goal you have.

When is kickoff? What if I miss kickoff?

We host in-person and virtual kick-offs prior to the meal plan starting.

The in-person kick-off is scheduled for early April 13, 2024. We also host a virtual kick-off inside our private challenge page later that week – recorded to replay at your convenience!

The program itself – including meal plan – begin for EVERYONE on April 15, 2024.

The Kick Off meeting is a great way to get started, but we understand you might be away or have another obligation, so we do a Facebook Live video which stays recorded on our Private Page. You can still be successful if unable to attend.

Do you use any special food journals or software?

We host our program on an online platform that is free and easy to access on your phone, laptop, or desktop computer. We also provide online tutortials to reference to get up-to-speed. We know technology isn’t everyone’s strong point!

We also recommend optional online tools that are free, but none are required. 


What if I am going on vacation during the program?

Missing time for a vacation, or business trip always happens, so no worries at all.
Life happens, and you are learning how to plan for success in this program. People travel, attend weddings, celebrate milestones, and so much more on this program. Your goals don’t have to take a backseat to your social life!

Is it normal to be afraid to sign up? (asking for a friend)

Very. We understand embarking on something new (or trying to lose weight again) is intimidating. We all fear failure and that is why our program is just as much on creating habits and establishing the right mindset as it is on the food.

The people who are successful with our program are not better than you, or smarter than you or luckier than you—all they did was take a deep breath- sign up and follow along.

We know you might be nervous but you are not alone. There will be many people ready to work right alongside you to help you be successful.

Can I do this program if I don't live in MA?

Absolutely! In fact, we have dozens of participants each season who live in other parts of the United States. From California to Florida to Maine – you can do this program from anywhere!

Do I need to workout with this program?

Working out at our gym or at all is not required. We do encourage clients to find activities they enjoy to stay active. It can be as simple as walking, but that is not a requirement for success. In fact, we have had many challenge participants who are on the mend from an injury and want to continue with their weight loss or maintenance goals.

If you are interested in working out (with us or at all), we encourage that, of course! And we have several options to get you started. Not local? Check out our On-Demand Video Bundle,  and bring The Fitness Asylum into your home. 

IS THere an age requirement?

You must be at least 18 years old to participate in our nutrition programs.
