Let’s face it — we’ve all indulged this holiday season. And while New Year’s resolutions are made to be broken, we’ve decided that for 20 people, 2016 is the last time you can make excuses. That’s correct, we’ve teamed up with Total Nutrition Kitchen and its owner, Chris Almazan of Chris Almazan Fitness to host the ULTIMATE New Year’s Shapeup: The #HobokenFitContest.


So usually when you work out with a trainer, you get a diet plan and workout plan, work out with them 1-2x per week, and then you’re on your own to fend against your own holiday party/wine/pizza demons. But this time it’s different. The reason? We’ve got the meals to coordinate with your workouts and actually make you see results — in ONE MONTH. The #HobokenFitContest is going to incorporate 3 elements to help you transform your body, starting right after the holidays. And, there’s a prize…mmhmm.  Here’s how it’s all going down:

The #HobokenFitContest starts Tuesday January 3, 2017 for 20 people in Hudson County {yes — we’re giving you TWO full days to recover from NYE but there are a limited # of spots}, and then it’s game on.

When you sign up for the program, you get the following from January 3 – February 3, 2017 each week:

  1. 10 fully prepared meals per week from Total Nutrition Kitchen for a month {$10-$12 value each with calories listed out and completely “clean” prepped foods — think sweet potatoes, veggies, lean proteins — but delicious and it won’t feel like you’re sacrificing quality for clean eating} — [40 meals total, $550+ value]
    • Each week, you’ll get 10 meals to enjoy for the week [so 2 meals per day during the work week] and then you can opt for a protein shake or other clean meal for the 3rd meal. Easy peasy.
  2. 2 private personal training sessions per week with the Chris Almazan Fitness team at Cast Iron Lofts [8 45-minute sessions total, $800+ value]
  3. A full diet plan and workout plan to follow, tailored to your current workout and health goals [Weekly check-ins, updates, etc]
  4. A full body transformation in just 30 days*
  5. The opportunity to win $1000 CASH for “biggest transformation” of 20 participants [based on weight, BMI, measurements, and before/after photos]

* must follow diet/exercise plan in entirety or results will not be as profound

What kind of food will I be eating?

This isn’t your average boring diet that will leave you starving {Editor’s note: promise — tried and true!}. You’ll be eating yummy wraps {yes, including buffalo chicken AND chicken caesar}, [protein] pancakes, steak and rice, meatballs, and lots of other delicious high protein, clean-eating meals that are fully prepared for you {so you don’t have to think for even a minute}. If you’re interested in trying the foods, definitely stop by TNK to one of the meet-and-greets to chat about Consider January your month “off” from cooking, and a total gift to yourself to get healthy and fit.

Editor’s note: I’ve personally tried 10+ different meals from TNK, and they’re all awesome {including protein shakes, açai bowls, and protein pancakes!}


I’m in. How much does it cost? 

Easy peasy. When you sign up, you’ll pay $500 upfront for the meals + personal training, and then 2 weeks later pay $500 to complete the program. {So $1000 total for the monthPsssst: Yes, it’s not cheap but normally something like this is worth well over $1500-$2000 for the month when you add up all the meals and personal training sessions included — and if you follow the plan you’re going to look amaze, so totally worth it!}. Give yourself the gift of fitness for one month in 2017, and you’ll definitely be on the right track. 

Here are a few other examples of meals — all pre-made and perfect for that clean-eating lifestyle that will get you the body you want:






^These are just a few examples. The best part is you can pick which meals you want for the week and supplement with protein shakes and other clean TNK-approved meals.

I’m a vegetarian/gluten-free [insert dietary restriction here].

No problem! Just let Chris know about any allergies, etc beforehand, and TNK will make sure to prep your meals sans allergens.

Buuuut — there’s a catch. A good catch.

Yup. The person with the biggest transformation {aka who has lost the most weight/measurements/BMIlooks the most transformed in their before and after photos should they choose to share them} WINS $1000 cash [aka you get your money back and the entire month was done in vain for your bod sans payment]. How’s that for a nice lil gift to yourself? 

SOLD. So how do I sign up?

There are 2 options. Both include emailing hello@hobokengirl.com to get started — so get on it 🙂

Option #1: Email hello@hobokengirl.com to sign up ASAP, and we’ll get you in touch with Chris to secure your spot [there are only 20!] and get you invoiced!

Option #2: Email hello@hobokengirl.com about your interest and any Qs you may have, and then come to one of the 3 meet-and-greet nights with Chris at Total Nutrition Kitchen. There, you can chat more about your fitness goals, sample a TNK meal, and sign-up on the spot.

  • The 3 nights available to come to TNK to meet Chris and learn more about the program are:
    • Wednesday, December 21, 2016 from 8PM – 9PM
    • Wednesday, December 28, 2016 from 8PM – 9PM
    • Monday, January 2, 2017 from 8PM – 9PM at CAST IRON LOFTS, 5th Floor
  • Come to any of these sessions to get signed up — but remember: we only have room for 20 people!

What else should I know about the challenge?

The challenge is open to anyone in the Hudson Country area, but there are only room for 20 lucky peeps who are able to travel to Hoboken and Jersey City to participate. You’ll be training with Chris and his team at the Cast Iron Lofts in JC {right by the Holland Tunnel in a private gym}, and picking up the meals at TNK in Hoboken {322 Washington Street}.

So I’m not trying to lose a major amount of weight, I just want to lose 5lbs and tone up.

This program then is literally perfect for you — especially if you need a jumpstart for those last stubborn pounds or just want to tone up and really look and feel your best in 2017. Regardless of the weight you want to lose or fitness goals you have, this is the perfect way to make it happen.

Do I have to be a part of the challenge or can I just sign up for the program and not opt in for prize?

The #HobokenFitChallenge is just to keep you accountable and have a fun way of tracking your progress while working towards a goal. You can 100% just sign up for the program and not publicly post your before/after photos on Insta! There are 20 spots for the first 20 to sign up.

If I’m one of the first 5 people to sign up for the program, what do I get?

IN SHAPE! JK, you actually do get something. You’ll get 12 meals per week instead of 10. That’s literally 8 extra meals free for the month — so you only have to worry about 1 extra day of meals per week on your own.

Why is Hoboken Girl teaming up with Chris + TNK?

TNK is a no-brainer. They have delicious food, calorie/macro counts, and are such a wonderful local addition to our community.

And when it comes to Chris, besides being an all-around cool guy and having the cutest English Bulldog named Ham, he lives his passion for fitness — and is a true testament of his fitness and meal-prep knowledge.


Over 10 years ago, Chris had his own battle with weight, and decided to fully commit to a healthy lifestyle. Look at this amazing transformation:


If that doesn’t inspire you for 2017, literally NOTHING will!
