12-week Challenge begins February 8th!

On February 8th we will begin the next 12-week challenge cycle. I decided against a money-pot contest as it is a huge undertaking that I would like to commit to once a year in September (for now). I also noticed a few things from the last challenge that discouraged me.

1. Many people did not complete the challenge.
2. While a personal email was provided, there wasn’t enough engagement.
3. Applicants needed more tools to succeed.

So, in this next challenge I am going to be investing more time and effort in helping all those in succeeding. There will be an online private group page so we can interact, I will provide more guidance and support and you will have not lost $20 should you not complete the 12 week challenge. In joining the challenge, you would’ve gained a tremendous amount of value including  me as your 12-week coach, a Hard Copy or Kindle version of The No More Excuses Diet book, the Core DVD and the Recipe Booklet. Now that The No More Excuses Diet Book is launching March 10th, I can start sharing the program with those who already pre-ordered it. This program has similar NEM rules/guidelines, however, it goes into more detail on how to:

– Calculate your caloric needs and macronutrient profile
– Measure your starting points based on vital stats, fitness level and traditional measurements
– Design your fitness program based on your fitness level
– Determine your postural deficiencies (and fix them)
– Create a plan, an accountability team and prepare for excuses
– Plan for the 3 different stages of success: the S.P.E.E.D., S.T.R.I.V.E. and S.C.O.R.E. stages
– Sustain your motivation throughout the three-month period
– Maintain your success and create an operational plan once you’ve reached the 12-week mark

This book was a labor of love. It took months to write and additional months to edit (with my awesome team at Harmony). It is based off my personal experiences as a past binge and emotional eater – as someone who was once overweight, who understands pregnancy and who is not a paid fitness model. The No More Excuses Diet has been tested on thousands of people and is the catalyst behind the online No Excuse Mom group. When the book is received, you will be provided with home workouts (with pictures) and 224 pages of fitness, personal stories, nutrition and lifestyle tips. When you pre-order, you will also receive tools in helping you succeed such as my 60 minute CORE DVD, which includes 3 home workouts and my exclusive Recipe Booklet filled with my favorite family recipes.

Currently, this book is only offered to residents in the U.S. and Canada. If you are outside of the country, but would like to participate in this challenge, please purchase the DVD and email the receipt to me at mariakangfitness@gmail.com

You will receive a downloadable ebook of some of my favorite recipes (all of them will be familiar to anyone who follows My Instagram HERE.)

The DVD is streaming. You are encouraged to perform a 20 minute Core workout, three times a week. These are my actual workouts that I used to develop my core strength and define my AB muscles.The DVD can be purchased HERE.

On pre-sale now, please visit your favorite online retailer. After your purchase please fill out the pre-order form on my website to receive entry to the 12-week challenge and free gifts.

  1. I have a few questions. I pre-ordered the book but through my digital Kindle account. Does that still count? And does that only give me access to the Facebook accountability group or does that waive entry fee? If not when and where can I sign up? I was not really sure on that info. Also do I have to track calories? I’ve never been one to track calories but have been successful just eating clean and healthy foods. I do have a game plan for my workout routine and I’m super excited to get started. I’ve already got my A game going on clean eating now that the holidays are over. And very lastly… at the end where do we submit our transformation to? Thank you so much for putting this all together. I can’t wait to get the book!

  2. Never mind on all the questions. Now that I’ve gone back and read without someone saying mama mama every few seconds I got all my questions answered. (:

  3. Hello,
    I am wondering if I can get your DVD with an Asia country code. I live in Thailand and often when I buy videos from the US they have the US country code and they won’t play in my computer or DVD player.
    Thank you,

  4. Hi Maria,
    Hope you & your family had a wonderful Christmas break. I’ve been following you on Facebook for about a year & just want to thank you for being so motivational. 🙂
    Anyway, I’d like to purchase your book & DVD for my wife as a gift. Please let me know how I can order it.
    Thanks so much.

  5. I am about 10 weeks pregnant. Do you think I can do this program? Should I purchase and do after I deliver? I’m a runner and have been keeping up with running for the most part (listening to my body and slowing down my pace). I haven’t been doing any strength training because I don’t know what to do that is safe for pregnancy.

  6. Hi! I pre-ordered your book, but the form on your website does not work, and email to your published bounced back. My order number is 102-8237221-7287420. I am so looking forward to this next 12 week challenge! Thank you for your inspiration!

  7. I pre-ordered the book and downloaded the recipe booklet, but am unable to access the core DVDs. How can I access them?

    1. The form has the digital DVD link. Hit it and book mark it so you can always return without having to fill the form out again.

  8. I live in Russia. If I understand correctly I can’t buy the book because it’s offered only for US and Canada. To participate the contest I should order the DVD, right?

  9. Dear Claudia,

    first of all a happy new year!

    . If you are outside of the country, but would like to participate in this challenge, please purchase the DVD and email the receipt to me

  10. Good afternoon,

    I am from the Caribbean….Trinidad to be exact. I am very interested in this challenge, however I am concerned that I cannot obtain the same foods that you may have in the diet plan. Would you work with me in terms of substituting?

  11. I preordered the book but lost the screen of the downloadable material. Can you please resend me the links or direct me to where I can find them? Thanks you!
