Hello Winter, you are NOT ready for what we have in store for you! Fitness In The Park team is on a mission to get lean this year and because we are all weather fitness people we will sail through winter like it’s nothing. From the 1st of June through to the 31st of July 2017 a lot of different activities will be taking place. The details of the challenge are as follows, be sure to pick your poison:
Run Everyday Challenge (June)
Participants are to run for 30 straight days throughout the month of June. The prescribed distance is 2K but if you feel you have energy to run a greater distance by all means go all out. If you choose to run the 5K for #JustDoItSunday you will be entitled to a Rest Day every Wednesday of the month. Each week there will be a different challenge on pace, elevation gain, time and consistency.
This winter focus we will focus on working out the entire body.
Ab Challenge (June)
The challenge above will work on strengthening our core. I have used this challenge in the past and produced positive results. The trick is to do the workout in proper form, eat right, stay hydrated and not miss a single day that is prescribed. I know you can do it, you’ve got this!
Squat Challenge (June)
According to Researchers squats can actually help you improve both your upper and lower body strength. One of the many benefits of squats include; great for digestion, the exercise does not put a strain on your back, you don’t need any fancy equipment just yourself and hello toned legs!
Skipping Challenge (July)
We had this Skipping Challenge in January and it was a success and because of that we want to do it again! The only difference this time around will be that we will start the challenge from day 30 going backwards. Brace yourself for 10 000 skips on day one! Remember you can buy your skipping rope from me in case you want to start practicing in advance.
Rules Of The Challenge
- If you miss a day of the challenge you will be disqualified.
- Share your workouts on any social media platform.
- Use the #RunWithFitnessBae challenge together with your other favourite fitness hash tags.
- You do not need to complete each exercise in one go; for example 100 crunches, feel free to break it up if needed. You can do 50 crunches in the morning and the other 50 in the evening as long as you complete your 100 crunches for the day.
This is meant to be nothing but fun and at the end of winter we will announce the winner. There will be a prize or two to be won so keep your eyes on the blog for updates, you don’t want to miss out. All the best on the challenge and may the best man or woman win!
P.S. Make sure you print and stick the challenge on your mirror or fridge as a reminder of what you need to do that day.
Get up every morning and tell yourself, I CAN DO THIS!
