Welcome to the 2016 BodyTrac Holiday Fitness Challenge!
We are so excited to have BodyTrac Personal Training as our Diamond Sponsor this year!
Training the human body has been a lifelong passion for Corey. He started training people after his first bachelor's as a high school Wrestling coach. During his time in the Army, Corey trained his team while being an NCO in 3rd Ranger Battalion. It was in the army where he fell in love with healing people with exercise while going through physical therapy following a shoulder injury and subsequent surgery.
From there he pursued his degree in Exercise Science where he became a strength coach with a local strength and conditioning gym. He has many years of experience training a multitude of populations ranging from the general population to Olympic and professional athletes.
Corey has been working within the BodyTrac family since 2012 and is excited to be taking on this venture as a part owner.
"Move more quicklier!" - Corey McHugh
The holiday season is the most difficult for so many people. From Halloween to New Year’s Eve, we are overloaded with cakes, pies, turkey, stuffing, candy and lots of eggnog. That’s why this challenge is so important and why it runs from November 1st to January 1st. My staff and I are here to help you make it through the holidays without needing your fat pants.
This year’s challenge is going to be bigger than ever with more support, more tips, more motivation and some amazing new features. If you really want to change your life, if you want to lose weight, if you want to tone up, if you want to eat healthier, if you want to BE healthier, you’ll want to join this challenge. We will help you find time to work out and show you how to eat mashed potatoes with gravy and pumpkin pie and still look amazing in that red dress you picked out- or look better in the LulaRoe leggings you love!
1. Who can join?
Any female member of Tampa Bay Moms Group (you don’t have to be a mom). If you’re not a member, becoming one is really easy- just like our Facebook page! Tampa Bay Moms Group is Tampa’s largest resource for moms and was created by local moms. Be sure to visit our Twitter (@tampabaymomsgrp) and Instagram (@tampabaymomsgroup), Real Fit Mom (blog), Twitter (@realfitmom1) and Instagram (@realfitmom1), too.
2. How does it work?
The challenge is run through a Facebook group. Everything you need will be in there. If you go to a gym or have a workout you enjoy, you are all set to go. If you’d like help finding a workout, we will help you. Each day you’ll receive a tip, motivation and a daily challenge you can complete if you like. I will have weekly challenges as well where you can win incredible prizes (water challenge, food journal challenge, etc). We do have meet ups but you are not required to attend.
3. Is there a fee?
Yes and no. Yes-This is a new feature. To be eligible for prizes, receive more individualized support, recipes and more there is a fee of $10- that’s only $5 a month! Similar fitness challenges can run $200-$300 AND require you to purchase products! This small fee covers the cost of postage, fees associated with sponsors/donations and website/administrative fees. No- You can also follow the TBMG Real Fit Mom Fitness Challenge page on Facebook to see the daily tips and motivation messages at no cost.
4. How do I join?

Click to join and you will be admitted into the group as soon as you’re verified. Registration is open until November 10th.
5. What will I get out of the group?
Immeasurable and positive support to pursue a fit and healthy lifestyle, motivation, inspiration, fitness coach (that’s me!), daily healthy recipes, fitness humor, new friendships, powerful personal development and chances to win some fabulous prizes. I will also have some special guests pop in from time to offer additional support and answer questions.
6. How do I gain entry to win prizes?
Prizes are only for those who pay the fee for the private Facebook group. Each week, a new challenge will be “pinned” at the top of the page. Example: if it’s a water challenge, you will post a picture of you and/or your water bottles throughout the week. Each Saturday I will put all of the names in a bowl and draw one via Facebook Live.
7. Will people be able to see my posts in the group?
No. The group is set to “closed” while registration is open. Once registration closes, the setting will be changed to “private.” My fitness groups are NEVER public. Sharing posts and pictures to anyone outside of the group is strictly forbidden and cause for removal from the group with no refund.
8. How can someone become a sponsor?
I am always looking for new sponsors!Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Sponsor information” in the subject line and I’ll send out the sponsorship packet.
I am so excited for this challenge to begin and can’t wait for you to meet my incredibly amazing, fabulous, over-worked and under-paid staff of wonderfully dedicated admins. I couldn’t do these challenges without their help!
