If you haven’t heard, our next challenge is happening at the Festivus Games!

 

This is a challenge that is for beginners, intermediates, and masters.  There are no advanced athletes or advanced movements.

 

Currently we have 9-10 that have said they want to do it.  If you have not heard about it or made a decision to give it a try I would like to encourage you to do it.

 

Challenges are good for two reasons:

 

Number one being is its a challenge…It challenges you to be better, dial in your diet, and be consistent with your workouts.  The better you prepare leading up to the challenge the better you will do. Challenges give the athletes a chance to push past barriers and see what you are made of.

 

Number 2 it will show you what areas you need to work on in your daily workouts.  Competitions have a way of exposing us to our weaknesses and strengths.  The effort you give in class is always great but never the same as the environment in competition.  You will elevate your game/abilities and do things you didn’t know you had in you.  And that is always amazing to see!

 

If you are interested in joining let me know at the gym.  Over the next few days/weeks I will be breaking down the workouts and how to best approach them.  

 

We will also be giving each workout a try so you know how to approach each workout and perform your best!

 

If you want to take a look at what the workouts are you can see them here:

If you decide that the challenge isn’t for you that is all good,  we would love it though if you would come out and support your friends and daily battle buddies that are doing the competition!
