Submissions will ONLY be accepted from the link above.

If you are Previous TT Transformation Contest winner you will need to enter in the Pro Category.

You must submit your complete entry by midnight EST on November 30th.


"Before" and "After" Photo Instructions

Before Photos

Grab a newspaper with the current date (your Day 1).
Wear your bathing suit.
Find a room where there's good lighting and it's not too dark.
Take 1 photo facing directly at the camera (full-length body shot).
Take a 2nd photo of you from the side.
Take a 3rd photo of you from the back.
Take a look at the photos and make sure they're not blurry or hard to see. If they are, re-take them. You'll want a good picture of how far you've come on week 12, trust me.

After Photos

Grab a newspaper with the current date (this will be your Day 84).
Try to wear the same bathing suit you wore in your before photo. If it doesn't fit or you can't, don't sweat it.
Take your after shot in the same room and same spot as your before (if possible).
Take 1 photo facing directly at the camera (same pose as in your before).
Take a 2nd photo of you from the side (preferably the same side as your before).
Take a 3rd photo of you from the back.
General Notes: The idea is to get a mirror image of your before photo and after photo, where the only thing changing is your sexy new body. Keep that in mind and don't forget to smile

"Before" and "After" Measurement Instructions

Take each of these measurements before you start the contest, and then measure again in the same way after you finish your transformation.

1. Weight

Measure your weight in pounds.

2. Waist

Measure (inches) around your true waist, the widest part of your stomach. This will typically be at the level of your belly button.

3. Hips

Measure (inches) around the broadest point on your hips/seat (usually right on the hip bone)

4. Chest

Measure (inches) fully around the broadest part of your chest (tape should rest over the nipples).

5. Shoulders

Measure (inches) the width of the back across the broadest part of shoulders, from shoulder point (where the shoulder meets the arm) to about 1-2 inches below the neckline.

6. Thighs

Measure (inches) fully around one thigh just below the crotch

Short Essay - 2000 Character Maximum

2000-character maximum essay about your 12-week transformation journey. Here's a list of questions that would be good to answer in your essay. These aren't mandatory but they are a nice guide:

What was your life like before joining the TT contest?
What type of workouts were you doing before? And if applicable, what results were you getting?
What was the biggest change for you after using the TT workouts?
What did you like best about the TT workouts?
How is your life better after the TT contest?
What TT workouts did you use?
Voting Process:

Once we've received all the contest entries, our Turbulence Team will then choose the TOP 5 finalists for each category. At this time, the Contest will then be open to public voting.

Voting will continue for 4 days, at which point first, second, and third place winners for each category will be notified via EMAIL and announced on FACEBOOK.

Rule for success #13

Don't forget to put the actual end date and not what you think is the end date to enter

I'm taking RGIII's approach to life this time and just declaring it as truth now...

I'm winning the Males under 40.

I would suggest taking photos shirtless for males and bathing suit for females. But you can still enter the contest and have a chance to win even if you wear normal clothing.

I will say you have a much greater chance of winning if you follow those rules though. It's much easier to see progress with bathing.

Hope that helps answer your question!

Yes! You can enter again as a returning Pro.

What TT programs did you use during the last Contest?

I started with the Meatheads, then moved onto Muscle Mashup and finished strong with Bodyweight Maximum Metabolism Boost.

Thanks so much! Looking forward to continuing on
