I am currently participating in Coach Jenny Hadfield’s Challenge 2018 National Parks Challenge and I completed a Whole Life Challenge this spring. Starting July 30th, I’m embarking on a 12-week journey with the Kilted Coaches (yay!) which will address my nutrition and fitness. I’ve done Adriene Mishler’s Yoga Camp and I’ve done 30-day ab or pushup or squat challenges, too.
What is my obsession with challenges anyway?
I love fitness challenges like those listed above for the same reason I went back to get my Bachelor of Education or signed up for a half-marathon or decided to have two kids instead of one. I feel compelled to do more, to push myself to my limits and to achieve (recovering perfectionist and overachiever here, folks.). What better way to do this than to have a pre-determined program with a deadline and oftentimes a ready-made supportive community to help you get there?
Why you should start your own challenge
Who doesn’t want to reach new clients and grow their business? I LOVE 10-day and 30-day challenges and I’m not the only one. Not sure where to start? Here are a few ideas to get you going:
-nutritionist/dietitians: 30 day clean eating challenge, 10 days to more veggies
-run clubs: 30 days of stretching, 3 weeks to an improved form
-psychologists: 20 day mindset challenge, 7 days to a better sleep
–trainers: 30 days to better posture, 21 day goal setting
–yoga: 30 days of yoga foundation, 3 weeks to your crow pose
The possibilities are only limited by your area of expertise, and even then you can collaborate with other experts.
Get creative and challenge yourself and your clients!
