With Spring Break and Summer and other swimsuit-needs fast approaching, I came up with a brilliant idea! It’s this time of year that many wish to becoming “swimsuit ready”, and contemplate going to the gym, eating healthy, etc, but often don’t know where to start, or start out at an extreme and burn out really quickly. Even a lot of programs that are “for beginners” are still a little too challenging and daunting for some. This is where my idea for the Spring to Summer Fitness Challenge began!
In order to increase your likelihood for succeeding, whether it be a nutrition or fitness plan, you need to start small and work your way up. Making a whole bunch of changes all at one time can lead to burnout rather than long term change. It’s like learning a new language- you can’t just jump into Advanced French if you don’t even know how to say “hello”; you’ll get overwhelmed! You start at French 101. The same concept applies here!
With that, I’ve devised a 3 part plan that is aimed towards people who do not exercise regularly as the ultimate gateway into fitness and long term change! It is designed for those who may have a hard time getting started on a fitness routine, or are so incredibly busy that there is no time to even think about working out. So if you’re a hardcore fitness fanatic who runs 5 miles every morning just as a warmup, this may not be geared for you, however it can be a great addition to what you already do! This is also wonderful for those who used to work out all the time, but may have fallen off track for awhile (like me, I was sick off and on for a bit) and need to ease back into it.
Are you ready? I know you are! Here’s how the challenge will work:
- Part 1: March 1-31, quick daily workout (approx. 15 minutes), and a weekly food challenge
- Part 2: April 1-30, up the intensity/length of the workouts from part 1, plus the weekly food challenge!
- Part 3: May 1-31, higher intensity/length from part 2, plus the weekly food challenge!
On the day before, I will post the workout calendar and weekly food challenge here to my website so you all can be ready for day 1 to start! So to make sure you don’t miss out, follow my blog so you’ll receive email updates!
With that, I challenge you to 1) follow my blog so you’ll be notified by email when I post those calendars 2) invite a friend to do the challenge with you 3) HAVE FUN! This will be your opening journey towards life long change!
Keep your eyes peeled on February 28 for the Part 1 Calendar!
Peace and love!
