Join our team for

Motivation Mania!

Sunday 11.15.20 - Saturday 2.6.21

Live Virtual Kick-off Event 11.14.20 at 10:00 AM

What is Motivation Mania?

A chance to work together as a virtual team to set exercise, nutrition and self-care goals. Over a 12-week period, you will achieve personal victories, while pushing and inspiring your teammates towards progress. Each week you will submit individual goals, and work together towards a collective team goal. Track individual and team progress through the team Progress Board. You can encourage your teammates, share the tricks that work for you, and receive professional tips, handouts, feedback, recipes and more from our staff.

What do I have to do?

Each week you will set new goals! You can set them in just one or all three categories (nutrition, exercise, self-care) - it's up to you! Update your progress weekly in the electronic form we will provide. The progress you make automatically gets counted towards the team challenge. Individual and team progress will be shared via the Progress Board each week.

What is included?
  • Individual goal setting

  • Individual and team accountability

  • A team challenge

  • Weekly updates on overall team progress

  • Weekly emails with tips, recipes, feedback, and handouts from professional staff

  • A virtual forum for sharing tips, motivation, and asking questions

  • Entry into the monthly raffle drawings for Amazon gift cards

Join us for the LIVE Virtual Kick-off Event on

Saturday, November 14

10 - 11 AM

Led by Domenica Rubino, MD and Rachel Trope, CEP

Get the most out of the the program by attending this live kick-off event. Dr. Rubino and Rachel T. will go over goal-setting techniques and how to find motivation for change. You will "meet" your fellow teammates, and collaborate on tips and tricks for staying motivated.
Official Program Start:  Sunday, November 15, 2020
Official Program End: Sunday, February 6, 2021
Cost: $240 (averaging to $20 per week)
What happens if I don't meet my goal?

All you have to do is participate! We will be looking to our teammates for inspiration, motivation and team spirit. You can share words of encouragement, virtual high-fives, and keys to your own success. You can even upload photos to document your journey. Remember, participation is progress! Every week you will have the chance to refine and re-structure your goals to meet your needs.

Do I have to share my goals with the team?

Sharing is optional but encouraged. The objective is to support and uplift each other! Goal sharing will be done anonymously through the Progress Board. You will be able to opt out of sharing your goals with the team if you choose. Either way, your accomplishments will automatically count towards the team challenge whether you choose to share or not. 

Is this a competition?

There is no inter-person competition. The only "competition" is with yourself and your own goal setting.

Are there any prizes?

For each week you set your goals and report your progress, you will get one entry into our Amazon gift card raffle. Every month, a winner will be drawn!

What is the virtual kick-off event?

The virtual kick-off is Saturday, November 14 at 10:00 AM and is included in the program cost. Dr. Rubino and Rachel will discuss the program and go over goal-setting techniques to make your Motivation Mania experience even more successful! You will get to "meet" your teammates and ask questions. If you are not signing up for the program but want to attend, the cost is $15, the same as current Saturday Scoop sessions.

I still have questions - who can I talk to?
