GTN Fitness Gamer Group (Cycle 2)

Alright folks, I am gearing up to start another cycle for our Fitness Gamer Group. I have opened up the creative aspect to a member of staff, abd they suggested that the ultimate reward for Cylce 2 (and subsequent cycles) will earn the exclusive and super-rare badge originally created for Zombie in PJ's challenges For The WIn

!!!! | (formerly Zombified)

That's right. The winner will not only obtain a greater physique and self confidence, but one of the rarest badges on the site.

A rare badge. If that isn't incentive enough, I don't know what is!

Here's the thing: We had great initial participation and sign-up, but unfortunatly, as the first cycle went on, a huge downward spike in participation occured, leaving really B8TINGU and myself as the only 'participants'. Therefore, there will be some changes that award active participation as well: First off is particpation penalties. Every player will be issued 10 points at the beginning of the cycle. For each week that that a member does not participate, point(s) will de deducted from thier balance. Also included are 'bye' weeks - when certain goals are met, a member could be awarded with the points for a given week and not have to actually participate. Simply playing and earning achievements, but failing to meet any goals will award a partial participation honor, indicating no scoreboard points earned or taken away. Any player who reaches 0 points after enough penalties will be disqualified and no longer tracked.

To date, I have earned almost 4k gamerscore and lost 20 pounds in the last 9 weeks. And I am lazy. I imagine some of you could really set some standards. However, gamerscore increase will be a reduced aspect of this competition, and participation will be more demanded. If you want a rare badge, healthy lifestyle, and respect from your loved ones, sign up!!

I am putting together the schedule for cycle 2, starting on September 1st. Any and all suggestions are welcome and will be carefully considered.

I was thinking of implementing a recruitment bonus too. Refer some members and friends to this group and you may be awarded with some bonus points.

I am still building the full schedule, which (thanks to Keans suggestion) will be posted at the beginning - all goals, bonuses, etc... so everyone can plan accordingly. I will edit this thread's first post with it. Unfortunatly, I left it on my jump drive at work, and so I will be working the remainder through email utnil I am back Monday.

2 days left for week 10 of the first cycle - good luck!!

Alright, I updated the first post with the first 3 weeks fo cycle two. I will post the rest later. I wanted you guys to get a head start!

So far the list includes:
porschephiliac
B8TINGU
MarvzMitts
Kaens
Preludecris
Fshguy

We can do it!
Starting tonight at midnight GTN time is cycle two of the fitness gamer group!!

If you haven't signed up, you must do so today. Late sign ups will be considered individually.

I have been laid up since Friday with an aggravation of my old army spine injury, and I am still looking forward to playing with you guys! This first week will be the easiest, but as this cycle continues, the difficulty will be ramped up considerably. The big prize is that awesome badge that only 4 members have at the moment - Zombiefied (pending a name change, I believe). Even though I won last time, I am still going to try hard to win again - if I do, maybe 2nd place will get the badge. I'll have to consult the bosses.

So, sign up, get ready, this will be a blast!
I've edited the first post with additional schedule I for,action and Bye Week goals. How that will be implemented will be this: each time you complete a Bye Week goal, I will put your name in a hat. At the start of week 5, I will pull a name - that person gets all points for that week and don't have to actually participate. It's a double edge sword however- the member with the most points and most achievements for the cycle will be honored, so taking a week off might hurt you later.

I was watching some twitch too, and a few Youtubes on it - oh man.... it IS so good, just like Fury Road!
Alright boys, we're officially off and running! Day One of competition started 14 hours ago... I have 10gs in 2 achievements so far. My average weight of the last 3 days is 181 - my goal is 170-175 at end of cycle 2.

What are your starting weights and goals? Remember, earning an achievement today or tomorrow gets you the bonus point for the week! Posting a picture of yourself (before) by Thursday enters you into the Bye Week drawing! This is an easy week guys, we should all be earning most of the available points easily this week - so let's do it!!

I want a 6 way tie for 2nd place (Someone has to get more points than anyone...)
I got 2 achievements for 75 gs yesterday. 1 point for me. Ill post a picture today as well. I don't really have a goal I'm aiming for I'm just doing this for fun. I hit the gym 4 times a week with high volume lifting and I do my cardio after my workout.
