Challenge Update

By Marcus | In Challenges, Events and Announcements | on January 30, 2013

Male athlete with barbell

Today’s post is just a quick update with regard to the Nutrition Challenge. As you may have noticed, there is a sign-in sheet by the notebooks to grab a time for the dunk truck. Snag a spot now to ensure you get a time you’ll be happy with!

As far as payments, you will have the choice of either paying cash in the gym or via credit card on the website. We will have the link up and running and start collecting payments on February 11th. If no payment is received by February 17th, I will release your spots to the public on February 18th.

I’ve also had a few questions about how what exactly to expect when getting tested. Here are some tips from the truck themselves:

Preparing for Your Test

  1. Bring a swimsuit and a towel. Change in the privacy of our dressing room located inside the lab.
  2. Don’t eat anything 2 hours prior. Eating a big meal within 2 hours before the test may affect your results by up to 1 1/2%, but no more. Therefore, we advise you not to eat within two hours before the test. Working out and drinking water is okay.
  3. You should try to use the restroom and take a shower if possible. Also, please do not have large amounts of makeup or hair gel on when taking the test.
  4. Submerge yourself in water. You will totally submerge yourself in water for only a few seconds. Simply count from one to five while underwater. You are in complete control.

The water is heated to between 89° and 94°, depending on the season. The water is also chemically treated for cleanliness to meet all local swimming pool and hot tub requirements of the local health department. We also replace the water every night. We have a private dressing room onboard and for your comfort the lab is air conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter.

A trained technician will be with you every second of the test. You will have privacy and confidentiality during the entire test, which takes approximately 10 minutes. You are always welcome to have a friend in the clinic at the same time watching if you wish.

Also, they disabled embedding the video, but here is a link to a quick demo of what to expect: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3gjS0wxVXY
