When does the MZ ChurchFIT Challenge start?

The MZ ChurchFIT Challenge begins at the kick-off launch! This year the launch will take place on
January 25th and 26th at all regular scheduled services (including Saturday Live at 5 service). There
will NOT be a corporate workout on Saturday, January 25th. Classes begin Monday, January 27th.

How long will the Challenge last?

Classes will start on January 27th, 2020 and will continue until November 21st, 2020.

Is there a deadline for registration?

Registration is online only and will be available all year around. Participants will also be allowed to
register on site at service during the launch weekend via computer, but remember you will have to
stand in line to do so, so we STRONGLY advise you pre-register before the launch weekend.

Is there a cost to participate?

This program is completely FREE, but you must complete the online registration to participate in any ChurchFIT classes, programs, or seminars.

Is there an age requirement to participate?

You must be at least 12-years-old to participate in any of ChurchFIT Challenges and to enter the
adult workout areas. Childcare will be provided.

Do I have to be in shape to participate in this Challenge?

No, absolutely NOT. This program was created to help people of all levels establish health  lifestyle changes in order to reach their own personal health goals.

Can I participate in this Challenge with a team or as an individual?

Although we are not having team challenges this year and every challenge will be based on individual effort, we strongly recommend you find at least one accountability partner. Research has shown that those who workout with a partner or show/tell others what their personal goals are, are more likely to reach them.  

How can I register for ChurchFIT?

All registration information is available on the MTZ website and the MTZ app!
There are two ways you can register:
a) Returning Participants:
If you participated in MZ ChurchFIT 2020, you will receive an email with your SAME
ChurchFIT Membership # from the previous year and a private link to your own
personal registration page. Follow the link and the instructions provided. You will see
that you will have the same membership # from the previous year and you will need
to fill out and update the registration form and electronically sign a new waiver for this
year. It is important that you use the link sent to you to register, as this will connect all
of your past information to your current information so that you can see your progress
over the years.

Can you tell me more about the monthly challenges?

ChurchFIT 2019 will host monthly challenge competitions. Each month we will host a NEW Challenge – starting in February and ending in November 2019. Each month will represent a new opportunity to reach your goals while at the same time win an awesome prize. We do this so that everyone has an equal opportunity to win! Challenge information will be included in the monthly newsletter.

How will the Challenge record my participation in the program?

Each participant is asked to bring their membership barcode on your smart device, to each class and/or event. Your barcode will be scanned at the door to ensure you are given credit for attending.

Am I required to attend the classes?

No, you are not REQUIRED to attend the classes. However, if you are participating in the ChurchFIT Challenge, please note that to qualify for the monthly prizes you do need to attend classes. Attendance will count heavily when calculating prize winners. Even if you are not participating in the Challenge, please note that because the goal of the MZ ChurchFIT program is not to just lose weight, but rather to develop and maintain healthy lifestyle habits and behaviors, you are strongly encouraged to attend the classes in order to maximize the benefit of the program.
