    How the Team Contest Works

    You will have the opportunity to compete with friends, or you will be placed in a team of other individuals (forming your own team is typically more successful). The amount of participants in a team can vary. At least 3 active participants are required on a team in order to qualify for contest winnings; however, a team can still participate with more or less participants. We suggest keeping teams close to 5 participants since that is where we have seen teams have the most success, but you may have more than that if you desire. Not only will you have a blast doing this contest together, but your team members will become your best support system. They will hold you accountable, keep you motivated, and make this challenge fun! Remember, you must finish the contest with at least 3 active participants to be eligible for contest team prizes.

    Team Scoring

    Scoring for teams is calculated on an average of points per week for a maximum score of 700 (plus weight loss). Inactive players, or players not reporting for the week are excluded from the averages at that time (for that week). Any player that updates those numbers at a later time will be automatically recalculated into the weekly points for the team numbers. (See table below for examples)


    Player 1

    Player 2

    Player 3

    Player 4

    Player 5

    Average Score





























    Cumulative Score


    *Note that average scores are tallied and summed at the end for the cumulative score. Zero scores are considered an inactive player and therefore, not considered part of the average scores. Note that any point entry is considered an active player, and therefore included in the weekly scores.

    **Participants are expected to log points DAILY. There will be a window of time to go back ONE DAY in the point tracker system to log any forgetting points from the previous day. Anything further back will not be available to change at midnight the next day.

    Team Coach

    Each team will have a coach. These are individuals that have previously competed, are currently competing, or are enrolled to compete in a TERRAfit challenge and have taken the training to become a certified TERRAfit coach. These coaches will be familiar with the products used in the TERRAfit challenge, they will work with the team leader to motivate teammates, and they will be an advocate for healthy lifestyle changes. Coaches are an integral part of a team's success and are eligible for a share of the team and individual winnings.

    A coach can, and is encouraged to, recruit and mentor any number of teams. Coaching more teams improves his/her odds of having the winning team.

    There is also an opportunity for coaches to win prizes in the end along with their teams upon doing well in the challenges.

    The TERRAfit Team will coach teams that are created without a specific coach being identified. Coaches that are participating along with their team will not be eligible to receive an additional payout of winnings.

    End of Challenge Winnings

    *At the end of every challenge, winners will be notified via email from winnings@terrafit.com and asked to verify their points and winnings. If the winner does not respond within 3 business days of the verification email, they will forfeit their prize winnings.

    **If there are 50 participants or less in any given challenge, there will not be any challenge winnings.

    How the point system works 

    A total of 700 points per week is possible (not including weight loss or pay it forward points). You earn points based on what you eat, how much water you drink, your exercise, daily challenges and additional bonus opportunities.

    Healthy Foods

    Eating right is a critical part of any healthy weight loss program. Your body needs natural and powerful fuel to burn. You earn 2 points for each serving of healthy food, with a maximum of 20 points in this category per day (Yes, you can have multiple servings of the same healthy food). A list of healthy foods is provided at the end of these instructions.


    Your parents were right. Vegetables ARE good for you, so you earn an extra 10 points if you have 4 or more servings of vegetables in a day. These 10 points are "all or nothing". Eat at least 4 servings and you get 10 points, anything less and you get nothing. Yes, these points are in addition to points you earn for choosing a healthy food. So, if you eat a serving of broccoli, you get 2 points for choosing a "healthy food" and if you eat 3 more servings of vegetables you also earn 10 extra points.

    Unhealthy Foods

    You won't reach your goals by working out if you eat the wrong foods. You will lose 2 points for each serving of unhealthy food. BE CAREFUL; don't get carried away, because there is NO LIMIT to how many points you can lose each day. A list of unhealthy foods is provided at the end of these instructions. HOWEVER, you get one FREE MEAL each week without having to lose points. A FREE MEAL consists of a maximum of 4 servings of unhealthy food eaten as part of a single meal.

    6 Small Meals Rather than 3 Larger Meals

    Eating smaller meals more regularly helps keep your metabolism going and helps to release fat. You earn 5 points for eating 6 small meals rather than 3 larger meals. So, plan ahead and always have some healthy food handy.

    Neutral Foods

    Foods not listed on the "healthy" or the "unhealthy" lists are neutral foods, and therefore do not add or subtract points for your daily points.

    Not eating after 8pm

    It isn't good for your body to eat late. So get in the habit of eating earlier. You earn 5 points if you don't eat anything after 8pm.

    Water Consumption

    Choosing water instead of juice, soda, colas, sports drinks, alcohol, etc helps speed up your metabolism; and can save you 240 calories or more each day. You earn points based on how much water you drink each day.

    If you drink 40 oz: You earn 4 points

    If you drink 48 oz: You earn 6 points

    If you drink 56 oz: You earn 8 points

    If you drink 64 oz: You earn 10 points


    We know that the length of time we exercise has a direct impact on how many calories we burn – and thus, how much fat we lose. You earn 20 points if you exercise for at least 30 minutes each day. If you can carry on a conversation while you are exercising, then you aren't working out hard enough. To earn your 20 points for exercising you must be out of breath enough during your workout that you can't carry on a conversation.

    Bonus points for following the TERRAfit workout schedule or doing your own workouts

    The TERRAfit Workout program is centered around a unique 4x4 Interval System combining lean muscle strength training with High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) – which can help you burn up to 9-times the fat and calories of a traditional cardio workout by helping your body continue to burn calories even after the workout. When you engage in brief periods of strenuous exercise, our bodies can't bring in enough oxygen. This creates an oxygen deficit. Our body then engages in Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC). EPOC is directly correlated to the intensity of your workout session. The more intense the workout, the more calories your body will burn after the workout has ended. The calories continue to burn until your body returns to the state it was in before you started working out. We also have incorporated yoga, kickboxing, cardio, core, and so much more into our workouts. There are new workout videos added monthly so you won't get tired of the same old workouts every day.

    So, you earn 10 bonus points if you use the TERRAfit workout and follow the TERRAfit workout schedule as your exercise routine. Proper warm up and cool down are important to any workout program so you must complete the entire workout including warm up and cool down to earn these 10 extra points. For example: if you are following the TERRAfit program you only need to do the workout that is on the TERRAfit schedule in your workout guide. You'll receive 20 points for working out and 10 points for following the TERRAfit program with a total of 30 points per day.

    We strongly recommend following the TERRAfit workout schedule; however, you are allowed to do your own workout and still get the 10 bonus points if certain specifications are followed: You are a part of the TERRAfit advantage monthly subscription even if you are doing your own workout (the DVDs do count as the subscription); the workout must be at least 30 minutes and increase your heart rate sufficiently in order to burn calories; if you can carry on a conversation while you are exercising, then you aren't working out hard enough. If you feel that your workout has been sufficient and are a part of the TERRAfit advantage subscription, then you can give yourself the 10 points for following the TERRAfit workout schedule.

    If at any time you would like to cancel your subscription, please email with your name so we can do so. This is the ONLY way to cancel your Terrafit Advantage program.

    Rest Days

    Wednesdays and Sundays are your rest days from exercise for anyone participating in a 12 week challenge. You are welcome to change around the rest days if they do not work with your schedule, but DO NOT put two rest days next to each other. However you want to take rest days, please take them because your body needs it. Don't worry because you will automatically get 20 points for working out, even though it is a rest day. Be sure to give yourself the 20 points allotted for exercising on Wednesday's and Sunday's. If you are subscribed to the TERRAfit Advantage Program (TFA), please give yourself the BONUS 10 points for following the TFA program.

    *21 day sprint exception: Participants may choose to take a yoga or stretching active rest day once a week if needed.


    Participants are allowed to log full points for food and water for 1 day per month if they are doing a fast for at least 2 meals.

    Bonus points for using Essential Oil product:

    Everyday you are eligible to earn an additional 10 points by using Essential Oil weight loss supplements. You can use any or all of these products; however, you will receive points for using only two products per day 5 points per product. You can choose from any of these products listed below:

    Bonus for Using Metabolic Blend

    Can't resist those mid-day munchies? The Metabolic Blend of essential oils is designed to help manage appetite between meals. It will help manage hunger, boost your metabolism and lift your mood. You earn a bonus points if you add 3-5 drops of Metabolic Blend to a glass of water at least 3 times in a day.

    Bonus Points Using Meal Replacement Shake

    Meal Replacement Shake is a convenient and delicious shake mix that provides essential nutrients. When two scoops are combined with one cup of non-fat milk, this shake contains only 240 calories. Two scoops of Meal Replacement Shake provide important amino acids to help prevent deterioration of muscle mass and improve muscle tone during exercise. You earn bonus points if you replace one of your meals with Meal Replacement Shake.

    Bonus Points for Using Supplement Pack

    The Supplement Pack is formulated with potent levels of essential nutrients and powerful metabolic factors for optimal health, energy, and longevity.

    Energy and Stamina Complex supports healthy mitochondrial function and aerobic capacity, and improves stamina naturally without the use of harmful stimulants. Use Energy and Stamina Complex as a healthy long-term alternative to caffeinated drinks and supplements for increased energy and vitality.

    Bonus Points for Using Soothing Blend, Peppermint or Respiratory Blend

    Essential oils are a great way to help you have optimal health and support your exercise and wellness efforts. For instance Peppermint essential oil invigorates the lungs and helps cool the body, so breathing it in before a workout or applying a couple drops topically on the back of your neck during a workout can be very refreshing and invigorating. The Respiratory Blend also invigorates the lungs. Soothing Blend is a blend of essential oils that provides comfort to occasionally tired and sore joints and muscles.

    You earn bonus points for using any of these three products throughout the day. If you have any questions about how to use essential oils your coach is your primary point of contact.

    Bonus Points for Completing the Daily Challenge

    Each day, you will be given a simple Daily Challenge. Your challenge will be posted Daily to your TERRAfit app under the "daily challenges and more" tab. Be sure to check your TERRAfit app each day and complete the Daily Challenge to earn 10 bonus points.

    Weekly Points for Weight Loss

    You earn points once per week based on how much weight you lose that week. An accurate way to calculate this is based on your beginning weight.

    STEP 1: Weigh yourself right when you get up in the morning (after you go to the bathroom) every weigh in day using the same scale.


    STEP 4: Calculate your WEIGHT LOSS POINTS using the following formula (when you have decimals, simply round to the nearest point):


    For example if Melanie weighs 153.4 lbs on the morning of Wednesday May 19th, and on Wednesday May 26, she weighs 151.2 lbs then the calculations are as follows:

    WEIGHT LOST THIS WEEK = 153.4 lbs – 151.2 lbs

    = 2.2 lbs

    WEIGHT LOSS POINTS = 2.2 lbs ÷ 153.4 lbs x 3000 = 43.02 points => 43 points (rounded)

    Then on June 2, if Melanie weights 149.8, the calculations for that week are as follows:

    WEIGHT LOST THIS WEEK = 151.2 lbs – 148.8 lbs

    = 2.4 lbs

    WEIGHT LOSS POINTS = 2.4 lbs ÷ 151.2 lbs x 3000 = 47.62 points => 48 points (rounded)

    *Weight Gain does not count against you for a loss of points; however, additional weight loss points cannot be earned until you drop below the lowest recorded weight during your challenge.

    Previous TERRAfit Challengers

    Previous participants in the TERRAfit challenge will be required to use their lowest recorded weight loss plus a variance of 3%. Therefore, weight loss will not count towards challenge points until you are within the 3% variance of your lowest weight recorded. Example: Joe participated in a previous challenge and recorded a low of 200 pounds. Joe starts another TERRAfit challenge and his newest beginning weight is now 220 pounds. Joe will not gain weight loss points for his new challenge until he is within 3% of his lowest recorded weight (200 pounds); therefore his points will start once he is below 206 pounds.

    *You can request a "weight reset" one time per calendar year.  Email support@terrafit.com to reset your weight for the upcoming challenge. If you do not email, weight loss points will be determined upon your lowest recorded weight plus a variance of 3%.

    Bonus for "Paying it Forward"

    When you do your best during the TERRAfit 12 Week Challenge you will look and feel great. People will notice and you will naturally want to share your success with others. We want to reward you for helping others join the Challenge (a new Challenge starts every month). You earn 10 bonus points for every person that you refer who joins the Challenge. For the duration of the entire Challenge, you can earn a maximum of 100 points for "Paying it Forward" during the challenge. Simply go to TERRAfit.com and follow the steps to refer a friend. You must provide your link and participants must register using your link in order for you to receive the "Pay it Forward" points. Pay it forward points will be added to your overall score in the week that it was accrued. That means that your points are added real time. (They are not added to your weekly score just over score).  Your "pay it forward" link does not link you and those who use your link to register, to the same team, unless you are coaching that team.  All those who register and do not have a specific coach who has recruited them, and use their coaches link to register, will be randomly placed on TERRAfit teams.  If you would like to be with friends on a specific TERRAfit team, please email us and we will do our best to place you all on the same TERRAfit team for the challenge.

    Bonus for Class Points

    Throughout the challenge, there will be opportunities to hold special incentives to invite others to classes or participate in a TERRAfit challenge. These classes will allow you to accumulate an additional 5 points per person in attendance up to 50 points total. Class points will be added to your overall score in the week that it was accrued. That means that your points are added real time. (They are not added to your weekly score just overall score).
