In order to complete the badge, participants will need to schedule a re-assessment after a minimum of 12-weeks and complete sections 1,8 and 9 (research project).  The participants base their 12-week workout (and future goals) on the results of the assessment that day, in conjunction with the resources available to that individual at home.
