The InBody 570 is an instrument that provides exact measurements and data analysis of an individual’s body composition including muscle mass, water, fat, bone mineral and much, much more. Winners of the Be Greater Wellness Challenge will be determined by the greatest increase in the “InBody Score” over the duration of the competition, not weight loss. The InBody Score takes into consideration the changes made to your “Muscle Mass” as well as “Body Fat” resulting in what we believe to be a fair measurement accommodating all shapes and sizes and keeps the chances of winning equal for all individuals.

Win cash and other prizes

This friendly and healthy competition will be awarding prizes to the top three males and females overall. Winners will be determined by the greatest increase in the “InBody Score” which considers both Muscle Mass and Body Fat during the competition as measured on our InBody 570 assessment tool.

1st Place – $300 – 3 months individual premier/diamond membership!
2nd Place – $200 – 2 months premier membership!
3rd Place – $125 – 1 month premier membership!
