24 Hour Fitness has a great new slogan
I absolutely love this idea. Challenge yourself a little more. Every day. They’re not saying, go out tomorrow and run a marathon, or bike 50 miles, or even run a 5k. They are just saying, push yourself a little more each day. Just a little. One more minute on the stairmill, or increase your speed and incline on the treadmill and go for 30 seconds more, or if you always stop at a certain place on your run/walk, go just a few steps farther…you can do it.
All this talk lately about 30 day challenges, and the 30 Day Shred, and challenging ourselves a little more each day, made me think, “Why don’t we challenge ourselves a little more over the weekend?” So, I propose a Virtual Boot Camp Challenge for the next four weeks. Here’s how it will work:
Each weekend I will throw down a challenge. It will be something doable, because I know we all have very busy lives and have our own workout routines to complete, but it will also be asking you to challenge yourself a little more. We will start with a small challenge and each week they will get progressively harder.
The Viritual Boot Camp Challenge begins Friday and ends Sunday at midnight. On Monday just let me know whether you were able to complete that week’s challenge. At the end of the four weeks you will have the great satisfaction that you challenged yourself AND I will send you a badge for you blog/website/your progress calendar.
300 jumping jacks
300 jump ropes (with or without a rope)
Can I cut it? I think KNOW I can! How about you?
P.S. You do not need to complete all parts of the Boot Camp Challenge at the same time, i.e., you do not need to do 300 jumping jacks in a row, you can split it up anyway you like, you just need to do 300 by the end of the challenge.
