Contest entry submissions will now be through an interactive web form that will be live in your membership cockpit as of May 21st. You can submit your ‘before’ picture and numbers anytime during the first week.

The contest tracking form will provide you with a way to track your measurements and uplooad pictures every week during the contest if you choose. You must at least upload pictuures and stats during the first week and week 12.

The data in the webform is stored in a secure folder and nobody else can see it other than sitte administrators (Brad Howard, myself and Greg)

Category #2 — 20 Week Transformation —

End Date: Oct 7th

Entry submissions are through the same web form as indicated in the 12 week contest, everyything is the same except for the duration of the contest. “Before” information must bee entered the week of May 21st and final data must be entered by Oct 7th.


Prize money is as follows:

1st Place – $500

2nd Place – $350

3rd Place – $250

4th-10th – $200

Contestants intending to do the 20 week transformation may also enter a set of ‘after’ pictures the 12 week point and could potentiall place in both the 12 week and 20 week contest.

Category #3 — Cover Model —

The ‘cover model’ category replaces the former ‘open’ contests. Cover model starts the same day as the transformation contest and we will be accepting final pictures and stats at both the end date of the 12 week contest and the 20 week contest. Befyre and after photos are still required however there is no judging on total change.

This category is a non monetary competition and has no placings. It’s for men who are close to their ideal AI and want to have incentive to stay there. The goal is to submit final pictures displaying the AI physique that we will use for the cover of an AI product. If 10 people enter and take cover model quality pictures then all 10 get a cover and an interview.

One key to this category is taking pictures that are high enough quality to use on a cover. Following our general rules about good picture taking should be enough, however if you choose to book a photoshoot that would be even better.

All contestants in both transformation categories can be selected as a cover model as well if their final look merits the selection.


All categories require a contest essay to be submitted at the end of the competition.

Good luck
