On the 911 Fitness site you will find the official body composition form (http://www.911fitness.com/bodyfat.htm). You need this form to record your Body Fat Measurements in January, which will be assessed by an authorized trainer at any 911 Fitness Authorized location. If you cannot locate one, you may select one in your community at a YMCA or other fitness center.
The trainer will fax the form to the 911 Fitness Challenge Staff, then return the form to you to save for the second Body Fat Measurements in April, at which time the trainer will fax the form again to 911 Fitness. If you live in a community that does not have a certified trainer contact us and we will locate a trainer to measure your team.
