With just a few days left until the 7 Week Summer Shred Challenge, everyone is getting ready to embark on a fun and exciting journey to reach their fitness goals. The challenge, which consists of 7-weeks of high energy and high intensity workouts, is one to ensure all levels of fitness goals are met. This time around, you can win yourself a 3-day cruise to the Bahamas!
I’ve participated in two challenges in the past and I’ve felt the highs, lows and all the in betweens of this challenge and can assure you that it is all worth it in the end. Although it’s a challenge, and at the end one male and one female will come out on top, sailing off to the Bahamas–did I mention winners get a 3-day cruise to the Bahamas? — I can’t help but feel this challenge builds a form of comradery between members.
So, whether you’ve already signed up for the challenge, or are on the fence about joining, I’ve compiled a short list of advice and tips to help you through the seven weeks:
Attend as many classes as you can; part of the challenge is you get 7-weeks of unlimited group personal training! Capitalize on this by booking the sessions, show up and show out! You will reap the benefits when you’re reviewing your before and after photos and body composition scans at the end.
Talk to other members and trainers. You’ll be surprised at the amount of knowledge everyone has. From nutrition, to workouts, to your actual body scan results, BodyRoc has extensive knowledge to help you reach your goals. When you sign up, you gain exclusive access to a private Facebook support group. This is a great place to form connections, ask questions and see what everyone is doing as far as workouts and meal ideas. You’ll also get motivation and videos from BodyRoc’s experienced trainers!
Nutrition is KEY! They say abs are made in the kitchen, and I have to agree. I’ve worked out so much but my diet was never at the same level of commitment. When I made diet changes I noticed even more results. Find a diet/meal plan that works for you and stick to it. BodyRoc has partnered with The Diet Doc Greater Hartford to provide an awesome deal on nutrition plans: for $150.00 (a 40% savings) you’ll receive a 1:1 consultation, customized meal plan, summary reviews and email updates from The Diet Doc. This bonus can have you sailing off to the Bahamas! For more information visit The Diet Doc Greater Hartford.
Most importantly, HAVE FUN! There’s a reason why BodyRoc is The Most Entertaining Workout. Reason being, in between the moments of running, lifting and boxing, the music fills the room and you can’t help but to have a dance off with one of the trainers, or with the person next to you.
The 7-Week Summer Shred Challenge kicks off on Sunday, June 17th. Be sure to speak to the welcome desk the next time you’re at the lab about signing up. I look forward to seeing you kick ass and getting the results you are so deserving of!
