Goals to Gains Photo Challenge

  • 12:00 AM

Reach the goal. Reap the gains.

Join our weekly social media photo challenge from May 15 – July 30!


How to Join: 

  1. Snap a pic that shows that you participated in the weekly challenge.
  2. Tag @lsuurec and #GoalstoGains then post to your personal Twitter or Instagram account.
  3. Post a photo of the challenge each week you’ll be entered to win an Apple Watch. Limited to one entry per week.


-Be safe and mindful of others as you post photos. You can always ask someone to take the picture for you, take it of the activity itself, or snap a pic after you completed the goal.

-Be creative! The picture does not have to be a selfie. Play around with different angles and ways to interpret the theme.

-Don’t forget to tag #GoalstoGains and @lsuurec in each of your posts.
