After working hard for 10 weeks, Take it to the Max clients might not recognize their own reflections. Former 10-week challenge participants have lost enough weight to look like entirely new people. That's because the program doesn't focus strictly on fitness—though team-building cardio and strength classes are a large part of it—it also incorporates nutrition and motivation.
To create healthier diets, participants learn which foods are truly nutritious and "clean," as well as how to measure serving sizes even when the measuring wall in the house is all filled up with the heights of the kids. To help clients maintain the drive to exercise and avoid unhealthy food, the program's coaches teach motivational techniques and encourage participants to support each other.
