DW Fitness - 40 days of fitness challenge
DW Fitness Clubs have challenged me to 40 days of fitness, which starts today and runs up until the 5th April.
They want to inspire as many people as possible to strive to improve their fitness levels, and for those who are already trying to be fighting fit and healthy, they want us to shake up our fitness regimes to keep it fresh and interesting.
They've got PT Lee Pickering, a personal trainer at DW, and Courtney Berlin, a certified health coach on board to keep us all motivated and inspired.
The challenges are fitness and food related (how could I say no?!), and today's challenge is;
In my personal workout plan for today, I'm already going to be doing 20 minutes of HIIT interval training on the treadmill as well as a cross fit style class that my gym puts on, so instead I'm going to opt for a 20 minute walk on my lunch break - it's far too easy for your lunch hour to slip away from you whilst you burrow away at your desk, and I'm definitely guilty of taking one look at the grey clouds outside and staying in - even though I know that getting some brisk fresh air really does clear my head and rejuvenate me for the afternoon!
Hopefully by making myself get off my arse and outdoors, I'll feel a lot better for it!
I'm going to be posting quite a bit about this challenge, so check back here to see how I'm getting on - or if you'd like to join in, get in touch with me and I'll share that days' fitness challenge! I'll aim to post the challenges on here once a week so you've got them for the week ahead. You can adapt them to make them as hard or as easy as you need, depending on your current fitness level and workout schedule. The most important thing is that it gets you consciously thinking about getting fitter.
Here are Thursday and Friday's challenges:
When I squat I usually use a 20kg barbell, but tomorrow I think I'll challenge myself to go heavier..
The hashtag to follow is #FitnessRevolution, and keep your eye on their blog for more on the 40 day challenge.
