Rough day yesterday? If you ate too many chocolate-covered almonds (I did!), too many cookies (Bally did!), or tipped back a few too many eggnogs (one of my crazy uncles did!), don’t worry…

I have good news.

TODAY is the first day of the rest of your life.

The solution to all of your fat loss troubles is here, and it’s free. It’s the 19th Turbulence Training Transformation Contest and it starts today.

Check out our recent winners and read the rules here

More good news…

You don’t have to pay an entry fee. It’s free.
You don’t have to buy any books or programs to enter. It’s free.
You don’t have to join a gym.
You don’t have to order any special meals or buy useless packaged dinners.
Did I mention the contest is free? No strings attached.

Best of all, you can win my money, and not just the loonies (what we call dollar coins here in Canadia) in my back pocket.

We’re talking about 1st place prizes of $1000, 2nd place prizes of $500, and 3rd place prizes of $250 – in SIX different categories. (Plus winners get a 1-Year Platinum TT Membership giving access to every TT workouts ever.)

This is the 19th time TT Transformation Contest, and this will be our biggest ever, partially due to the two NEW categories we’ve added:

1)    Women Under 40
2)    Men Under 40
3)    Women Over 40
4)    Men Over 40
5)    Women’s “PRO” (a new category open for all past winners to re-enter)
6)    Men’s “PRO” (a new category open for all past winners to re-enter)

So how does the TT Transformation Contest work?

It’s simple.

PRINT OUT these instructions so you don’t miss a chance to win my money.

First, you commit to changing your life, starting today, or any time before Wednesday, January 15th – the final day to enter the 12-week contest.

Second, you get a newspaper and take your Before photo. Keep that on your computer so that you can send it in at the end of the contest (you don’t need to send it in now).

Third, start using any of the following fat burning workout options for the next 12 weeks:

a) Turbulence Training
b) Home Workout Revolution
c) Any of my free workouts that we’ve given away on Facebook, Youtube, or my TTFatLoss.com blog
d) Any workout from a Certified Turbulence Trainer, like Mikey Whitfield’s Finishers, Shawna Kaminski’s Challenge Workouts, Kate Vidulich’s Fat Loss Accelerators, Chris Lopez’s Kettlebell Workouts, etc.
e) Any workout program done in-person with a Certified Turbulence Trainer like Catherine Gordon and Corey Arsenault have done with the clients

Fourth, after 12-weeks of transforming your body with an approved Turbulence Training workout, buy another newspaper and take an amazing After photo.

Fifth, write a 300-word summary of your transformation, including what workouts you used, and then email that summary and your Before and After photos to TurbulenceTrainingHelp@gmail.com.

That’s it!

(No need to send in your Before photos until the END of the contest.)

Once we have all the entries, we open the contest up for voting to the world, and winners of my money are chosen.

It’s a Win-Win-Win situation and you can start TODAY.

But there are a few things NOT to do as well.

Don’t wait until January 1st. Get back in shape, get more energy, and start to look and feel better NOW. Why wait till later? Let’s change your life today.

Don’t dwell on past mistakes because that will get you nowhere. Instead, focus on what you can and WILL do today, tomorrow, and the rest of your life, and all of the great things that will happen because of your actions.

Don’t wait for the ‘time to be right’ (i.e. until it’s too late) to take action on your goals. If there’s something you really want to do – if there is a dream body you want to achieve or a change in life you need – then find a way to do it now.

Instead of waiting, just get started.

Focus on replacing your bad habits and thought patterns, one-by-one, over time, with good habits and thought patterns. One step at a time, done over time, leads to powerful changes in your life.

Everything you do is either moving you closer to or farther away from your goals. So which way will you be moving today?

Remember that every action has an impact.

Remember that every decision makes things better or worse.

Remember that everything counts, as my friend Gary Ryan Blair says.

Set your goals. Follow your dreams. Start today. Start right now.

PS – Don’t wait for the 20th Contest to come around…

…because here’s the harsh truth…

“You are responsible for exactly who, what, and where you are in life. That will be just as true this time next year.” – Kekich Credo #58

If you want to have an amazing 2014, start now. Don’t wait until January 1st. You can just easily change today as you can next week.

Here’s what you need to get started – the free TT Transformation Contest:

Remember – it’s free!

PPS – Merry Christmas!
 
Here’s a quick garage circuit workout I used on Christmas morning…enjoy this idea as just another free workout gift…you can even use it to kick off your TT Transformation:

1)    KB Swings – 20 reps
2)    KB Snatches – 5 per side
3)    KB Goblet Squats – 20 reps
4)    Slam Ball Slams – 20 reps
No rest between exercises.
30-60 seconds rest at the end of the circuit before repeating.
I did 6 circuits & an additional 100 bodyweight squats as a warm-up.

NOTE: The Slam Ball Slams are the toughest of those exercises on your conditioning. Picking up and slamming – 20 times – a 22 pound slam ball wears you out even quicker than KB swings with a 70 pound bell.

The Slam Ball is my new favorite garage gym toy – and that includes the $800 set of PowerBlocks that I bought myself for Christmas!

I’ll be finishing up my home gym set-up later this week and will send you photos of it soon. I’ve already been dreaming up incredible new TT workouts for you – like January’s soon-to-be-released “TT Guru Level 40-Minute Fat Loss Workout”.

Now enough reading, get out there and get Transforming!
