Over the past few weeks, we have been closely monitoring and evaluating the situation around COVID-19 to ensure we are taking the necessary measures to protect the health and wellbeing of all participants.
We previously announced that we would no longer be conducting mid-point weigh-ins in order to limit any exposure to the virus and to protect the health and safety of our employees as well as all participants and their families.
Given the recent recommendation by the CDC to halt any events that consist of 50 people or more for the next 8 weeks, we will be unable to host the weigh out portion of our Grand InBody CHALLENGE. Furthermore, due to the rapid changes that continue to unfold with the COVID-19 virus, at this point we do not plan on postponing the weigh-out. We understand that over the past few weeks many of you have been working hard towards making positive changes in your body composition; although we won't be there to see the accomplishments you've made, we hope that any new knowledge, discipline, and gains you have learned and made during this time will stay with you into your personal life.
As you may remember, our proceeds go to supporting the Children's Hospital of Orange County, and all participation fees were accepted as a donation to the Children's Hospital of Orange County. Therefore, we apologize for the inconvenience that this has caused, as we will be unable to provide any refunds, but please know that your support is going to a good cause.
We appreciate your understanding during this time and we hope you will be able to join us in next year's CHALLENGE.
For any questions, comments, or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

While many fitness challenges focus on weight loss or other subjective measurements, the InBody Challenge provides a platform where participants can continuously see their success with quantitative data.
Weight is a number that can be misleading or discouraging to use in wellness initiatives. The InBody Challenge moves the conversation away from ¢®¡Æweight loss¢®¡¾ to body composition (fat loss & muscle gain), creating long-term goals and shifting the perspective to understanding what it means to genuinely transform one¢®?s health.
