I feel like I’ve been writing a lot of pregnancy posts lately… Well, not necessarily a lot since lets be honest, I haven’t been writing much these days. Time, energy, and desire have been contributing factors in that. BUT, with baby due any day and me taking some time off from coaching these last few weeks before he arrives, I’ve got a little more time on my hands. So back to blogging I go! Which actually feels good! I do enjoy and miss it 🙂
Anyway, today I wanted to talk a little bit about Challenge Groups. Something that if you follow me on Social Media you’ve seen me sharing about.
Let’s start with the basics,
WHAT IS A CHALLENGE GROUP?
A challenge group in this sense, is an online accountability group that follows a specific (or general) Beachbody program. Now, don’t let the title “Beachbody” scare you away. I know I used to see that name and immediately stop reading. If you’re thinking it’s not for you because it’s a Beachbody program, stick with me on this and you might just change your mind 🙂
Like I said, challenge groups follow a nutrition and workout program provided by Beachbody. They are held either in a private Facebook group and/or on the Challenge Tracker app. So no one, other than those also participating in the program, can see what you’re doing, posting, etc. The participants in the group get to know each other, and become accountability partners to support and motivate one another.
WHAT DO YOU DO IN THE GROUP?
As a member of a challenge group you’ll be asked to participate daily by posting pictures of your workouts, pictures of your food, encouragement towards others, participation in daily bonus challenges, and weekly stat check in’s. While it might sound like a lot, it’s not! It just takes a second to share a post about your workout or a picture of your food but by checking in you’re more accountable for your actions and more likely to succeed!
WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU JOIN A GROUP?
Every coach runs their challenge groups differently but when you join one of my challenge groups you’ll be getting the following,
- TONS of support from other challengers going through the same program
- Weekly meal plans
- Personal support from myself, a certified group fitness instructor and coach
- Bonus workouts, challenges and prizes!
- Various bonus materials to help you succeed
WHAT DOES IT COST?
In order to be placed on my team and into a challenge group you’ll need to purchase a Beachbody Challenge kit from me. These range in price from $120 – $160 depending on the program. Most participants purchase the 21 Day Fix which I’ll talk about in a second 🙂
Depending on which program you choose, the contents of your Challenge Pack will vary, but all of them include:
- Workout DVDs
- Menu Plans
- 30 Day Supply of Shakeology
WHY IT WORKS FOR SO MANY PEOPLE.
Think about times in your life when you’ve struggled to complete something or maybe even failed. Did you have a cheerleader rooting you on? Did you have someone asking you daily how you were doing with your goals? Did you have to check in with someone on a daily basis to let them know you were completing your work? Chances are you didn’t and maybe if you did you would have been more likely to succeed at reaching your goals. That’s what you get in a challenge group and a huge part of why this program works for so many people. They find that when they are held more accountable for their actions, they are more likely to complete them. If they have someone checking in with them weekly or daily, they are more encouraged to work harder. If they see others sharing healthy meals, getting up before their kids to workout or pushing play even though they’ve had an extremely draining, long day, they are more likely to do the same. THIS is why challenge groups are so helpful for so many and people are more likely to succeed.
The BEST program for a challenge group and it’s on SALE!!!!
You’ve probably heard me talking a little about the 21 Day Fix. I shared my recap of it after I went through my first round here. I personally really enjoyed the program and saw great results even though I wan’t really aiming for much. I just wanted to tone up and feel better. I definitely did just that! Since then I’ve witnessed so many people go through this program with amazing results.
If you’ve heard about the 21 Day Fix but haven’t been sure what it’s all about or if it’s for you… Check out this video that really explains the program and it’s benefits.
Interested? I’ve got some awesome news!!!! Right now the 21 Day Fix is on sale for $20 off the original price and I’m offering an additional $10 cash back for new customers. So you’ll end up saving $30!!!! While my next challenge group won’t start until after 4th of July (because no one wants to be trying to watch what they eat around holiday’s ;-), the sale is only for this month so don’t delay!
