I was challenged this week by a 74 year old Crossfit coach with 12% bodyfat who runs a daily Longevity program for people 55 years and up. I worked out surrounded by 70-somethings and got my butt kicked.
He challenged me to be devout in my nutrition and fitness. No time outs. No excuses. None. How could I not accept the challenge? He’s making huge powerful changes in the lives of his athletes—reversing disease and improving quality of life. So, I’m passing the challenge on to our team. Be DEVOUT.
Last week was my first week of not attaining my goal. I hate to say that as the “coach” of the Team. I commit to not let that happen again! I will BE DEVOUT! Will you join me?
The goal of the Power-Up Fitness Challenge is to complete 5 Daily Workouts (You can’t double-up in a day to make them up. We’re looking for five days of activity.)
Week 4 Power-Up Fitness Challenge Team:
We’d love for YOUR name to be here!
Week 4 Results
All fitness levels can participate in the Power-Up Fitness Challenge because you choose your own workouts based on your interests and abilities. The Team includes yogis, walkers/hikers, yard-workers, ping pong players, elliptical enthusiasts and Crossfitters! The goal is consistent, daily activity.
Today kicks off Week 5 of the 6 Week Power-Up Fitness Challenge! Your Week 4 investment will be put into your “bank” if you met the goal or into the “pot”, if not. Your Week 5 investment of 0.5 SBD is due TODAY and will be held for you as incentive to meet your goal. All you need to do is follow-through with YOUR COMMITTMENT to workout 5 days this week.
Complete ANY workout you choose. Now that we’re in the home stretch of this Challenge, let’s go one step further! I challenge you to NO SUGAR this week! I know this is a challenge; it’s supposed to be! Sugar is an inflammatory substance in our bodies. Many of us are insulin resistant and can’t process the sugar properly, so it contributes to fat storage—especially visceral fat surrounding your organs and contributes to disease. So, the goal is NO SUGAR! Choose to commit and comment about it.
What You Need To Do
This goal IS achievable. The key is PLAN and STICK TO YOUR PLAN. We’re also developing character by committing to a goal and following through with what we say we’ll do.
- Send your 0.5 SBD to @coachjj TODAY to claim your spot in the Challenge
- Comment DAILY on THIS post in your own comment thread stating what # workout you’re completing, to keep a running tally of your workouts for the week. For example @andysantics did an excellent job of this in her comment thread:
- Comment on other challengers threads to offer encouragement and support! @dreemsteem is a CHAMP in this category!
At the end of the week, if you meet the goal your 0.5 SBD goes into YOUR “bank” to be returned to you at the end of the Challenge. If not, it goes into the “Team Pot” to be used as a prize pool for the Most Inspiring “Results” post at the end of the Challenge (as voted on by me).
Let’s Do This
I’m excited to see what we do this week as a Team. TOGETHER we can achieve our goals. I’m committing to add three high intensity workouts AND no sugar this week—this will definitely push me outside my comfort zone. What are YOU planning to achieve?
