Fall Fitness Challenge- Week 1

Welcome to our Fall Fitness Challenge!

 

 

For the next 4 weeks, we will be working out, developing nutritious habits, and creating a healthy lifestyle that will take you into the New Year and beyond!

Our workouts can all be done at home and use common household items for equipment. This week, we start with pillows!  Each workout is designed specifically to burn calories and build muscle in fun, creative ways. In 30 minutes (or less) you will strengthen your body from head to toe!

Before you begin, be sure to check out our preparation list to ensure you get the best out of the challenge. Click here.  

 

Week 1

  • Aim to perform the "Home Workout Challenge" and bonus Burnout 3 to 4 times this week. I love variety, but this challenge gives you just one workout a week so you can master the moves and try to improve with each workout. 
  • Get 30 minutes of physical activity on the other days. A simple walk around the neighborhood is perfect. Or you can go on a bike ride, play a game of tag with the kiddos, even get around to cleaning out the garage, it does not matter what you do, just get up and get moving!  
  • Remember to track your calories and reach your recommended daily water intake. Tracking calories can be tough, but it is worth it for these next few weeks. You will be surprised how many calories are in your "healthy snacks" or how much larger your portions are than you thought. 
  • Share your success with our MAX community! Post a picture of your nutritious (and delicious) dinner, a clip of you rocking the workout, or a motivational quote that gets you through the day!

Good luck and remember....You GET what you GIVE!
