I challenged people to workout 5 days per week for 5 consecutive weeks. I asked them to complete 2 strength, 2 cardio and 1 workout of their choice each week. 80 people around this country accepted the challenge. The goal was for people to feel healthier, stronger and make healthy living part of their daily plan. It worked!
People who have never worked out before found themselves craving the endorphin high of a good sweat session. Participants did everything from Pilates, spinning and running to swimming, boxing and weight lifting.
As participants checked in on social media with their daily workouts, I was so inspired by their courage, fearlessness and team work. This challenge demonstrates that we all can lead healthier lives if we just prioritize it into our schedules. I call it a #SweatyParty.
The #5in5 Fitness Challenge ended weeks ago but people are still getting #sweaty. Just last night in NYC, someone whispered in my ear at a makeup counter, “Girl, I got my 5 workouts in last week.” After 21 days, we instinctively create new habits. Instead of hitting the snooze button or watching another hour of television, participants are thinking about how they can squeeze movement into their hectic day.
If you would like to create a fitness challenge in your neighborhood, spiritual community or group of friends, please reach out to us below and we will help you organize your team! You know what they say, “Birds of a feather flock together.” Let’s get healthy!
