1. The Prize Club is not a diet.
Instead, we help our members improve their health by teaching broad concepts, and then allowing them to apply those concepts as they see fit.
The program is for people who want to change their health habits. For many, this is a simple but challenging task. Old habits are hard to break, but we can succeed with the right motives, a strategy, and accountability.
2. The Prize Club is not a weight loss program.
Only about half our members have weight loss goals. However, the program’s “one day at a time” approach is useful for people with weight loss goals. By focusing on making one healthy choice at a time, members succeed in initially losing weight and keeping it off long-term.
3. The Prize Club is not a “touchy-feely” support group.
It’s easy to perceive the program as “touchy-feely” because of the emphasis on community. The Prize Club creates a powerful sense of community, which often makes the difference between success and failure. The group dynamic helps members find inspiration, support, and ideas from advisors as well as other members.
We recognize that everyone has varying levels of comfort in a group setting. For this reason, members are not required to do anything that makes them feel uncomfortable. All that matters is that they’re successfully meeting their health goals and enjoying the process.
4. The Prize Club is not a “one-size-fits-all” program.
Unlike most wellness programs, The Prize Club is individualized to each member’s goals and lifestyle. We have very few requirements. Again, we teach broad concepts and then allow members to create their own strategies under our guidance.
This approach has proven to work. Everyone has different challenges that prevent them from meeting their health goals. The “one-size-fits-all” approach is too stringent and not specific enough to help people change their habits.
5. The Prize Club is not a “one and done” program.
The program helps members create a healthy lifestyle for the long-term. It takes time to successfully change habits and the process doesn’t end after the initial 30 day program.
The Ongoing Membership provides continued support and inspiration after the initial program has ended. This membership provides access to our discussion-based alumni meetings, the forum, Prize Club workouts, and other One on One events.
