The 2013 Transformation Contest: Build Muscle, Lose Fat, and Win a Dream Fitness Experience

Sign up for the Transformation Contest

Back in 1990, Arnold wanted to make a big difference and help more people become healthy, fit, and muscular. After making his mark as the world’s greatest bodybuilder and growing into the role as Hollywood’s biggest action star, Arnold took on the position of chairman of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. His intentions were big—just like everything else he does—to help fight obesity, get people up off their ass, and improve levels of activity.

Arnold has continued that fight, and the backbone of his spark and desire to bring physical fitness to everyone lives on at this site.

As a trusted fitness advisor for Arnold, I humbly stand in his shadow and work with all the other incredible advisors to carry the torch by bringing you the best fitness and diet guidance that makes The Oak smile.  (And when it doesn’t, trust me, he tells us exactly what we need to change to give you the info you need; after all he’s still Arnold.)

Despite Arnold’s best efforts, there are still battles to be won. There are real barriers that stand in your way from achieving your goals. You know that building muscle and shredding fat requires determination and dedication. It demands a can’t-quit attitude, hustle that makes other people wonder “what you’re on,” and a burning desire to become better and establish a work ethic that can only result in excellence.

And yet, sometimes even the best and most driven people still need help. So we’re going to give it to you.

The Better Body Blueprint

I’ll be honest: We all need a little assistance to reach our goal. Arnold found it in the form of Reg Park, his childhood hero who brought him to South Africa to share his wisdom, and Joe Weider, who brought Arnold to America so he could realize his dreams. Arnold’s internal fire has never dimmed for a second, but even he needed some help to turn his passions into reality.

Arnold created this site to do the same for you. That’s why we pack in as much fitness information and motivational lessons to guide you. But it’s not always enough. The Internet has created a wealth of information that is also hidden with landmines. Bad information is everywhere, and it can oftentimes blow up your best-laid plans.

That’s not to say you don’t have good options. As Arnold will be the first to tell you, many workouts work. Many diets are effective. It’s all about finding the one that you can trust and finding what works for you.

Even when you find what works or whom you should trust, cost or motivation can be an issue. Either the programs are too expensive, or there’s just not enough guidance to help you find your way.

With that in mind, Jason Ferruggia—another Schwarzennegger.com advisor—built the Renegade Inner Circle. Jason has established himself as one of the most respected strength coaches in the world. It’s why Arnold has him to write about everything from the rules of cardio, to how to deadlift a shit-ton of weight.

Jason wanted to take his world-class programs and make them affordable for everyone, while cutting out the confusing noise in the fitness industry. That’s what the Renegade Inner Circle is: A fitness community for people with two simple goals: Become muscular and strong, and get rid of unwanted fat. There have literally been thousands of people who have joined the Renegade Inner Circle and transformed their bodies. The proof is undeniable.

While this is not the only community or solution, The Renegade Inner Circle has a proven track record of turning regular men into guys that achieve their potential. Athletes and actors turn to Jason for hundreds of dollars per hour, but you can get a new workout every week at a cost that anyone can afford. And right now, thanks to Arnold, we’re letting anyone sign up for The Renegade Inner Circle for just $1 for the first month. And by doing so, you’ll also have the chance to enter the Transformation Contest, where Jason will help you reach your goals, and have the potential to win more than $10,000 worth of prizes.

In the Inner Circle you’ll get all the workouts you need, and you also receive all the coaching advice, workout videos, diet help, and motivation to ensure that you have all the guidance you need to reach your goals. 

The Transformation Contest: Win Prizes and Give Back

The Renegade Inner Circle is built in the spirit of Arnold’s greater vision: It’s designed to help you become better while helping others. That’s why a portion of all the regularly priced monthly membership fee goes towards The After School All Stars, a program Arnold started to spread sports and fitness to the next generation and ensure that future generations can be healthier.

And this year, we also want to reward you for your hard work. When you sign up for the Renegade Inner Circle (just $1 for the first month and $19.99 after), you can join the Transformation Contest. Over the next 12 weeks, we’ll be giving you the workouts and diet advice you need to completely change your body. And a portion of the proceeds will help improve physical fitness throughout the nation.

If you win the contest, you’ll be flown out to Los Angeles for a beach vacation and fitness experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen. You’ll train with Jason Ferruggia and me (we’re training partners), be put up in a premier hotel on the beach, and you’ll eat at all the best restaurants that LA has to offer.  We’ll talk shop, share the best training methods, get massages, and maybe—just maybe—you’ll have the chance to meet Arnold himself.

Arnold believes in the spark. Once you find that spark, we want to help provide you with the other tools, help, and coaching you need to change your body and your life.

If you want to join the Renegade Inner Circle Contest, you must sign up and remain in the community for the duration of the contest. This community was built for you, and inspired by the mission of Arnold. Take that first step, and we’ll guide you the rest of the way to make sure nothing stands in your way.
