Participate in challenges!
Is your workout routine in a rut? Participate in a fitness challenge! What’s a fitness challenge? It’s a 14 to 30- day schedule where you focus on a particular body part or exercise move. Each day you build upon the reps or progress from the previous day. If you do a simple google search you’ll see all the possibilities. From squats, arms, running, or pushups, you can essentially find any fitness challenge that is geared towards your fitness goals. This is the perfect opportunity to get some targeted training for FREE!
If you join a challenge via social media, you’ll not only get the fitness tips/ advice BUT you’ll also get the social support aspect. You’ll meet new people who are also on their own fitness journey and interact with others as they too take on the same challenge as you. You’ll appreciate the support and connection with others especially on the days when you feel like you just can’t do it.
I personally ran a squat challenge via Facebook and loved it! The participants were so enthusiastic. People checked in daily and got to see others check in as well. No one felt alone because there were about 20 people in the group going through the process together. It went so well that one of the participants suggested the theme for another challenge–arms! Many people from that same group carried over to the new group with some more additions. Throughout the week, more people were added to the group because people were intrigued by the posts of group participants on their personal pages or decided to tell a friend about their experience. It was a lot of fun to see the group grow and to see all the daily accountability posts.
If you’re looking for a change of pace that gets you sweating at home but also socializing with new interesting people via social media, you have to join in on a fitness challenge. Don’t know anyone organizing one? Contact me and you can join one of mine!
Remember— If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you!
