I talk about them all the time. I LOVE them. I assume everyone knows exactly what they are. But if you had asked me a few years ago what a challenge group was, would have had no freaking clue. So, first I’ll tell you what….and then I’ll tell you why.
A challenge group is an online accountability group. Its run either through a closed FB group, or through the Challenge Tracker app. It’s a group of people, who are all working towards some goal or another, who have committed to a Beachbody program and replacing one meal a day with our superfoods shake for the duration of the group (usually 30ish days). In the group, everyone encourages each other, there are daily motivational posts, recipes, accountability and we learn about clean eating and making your health a priority. So, now that you know what it is…let’s get to the good stuff. The WHY.
How may times have you started a program, or a gym routine….only to last a couple weeks and then you fall off? Maybe it’s because you lose interest, you’re not sure what to do next, you feel alone, you can’t find the motivation or you don’t have anything or anyone holding you accountable. THIS my friends is where the Challenge Group comes in to say the day. I have been running these groups for about 2 years now and let me tell you….they are amazing! Amazing for support, amazing for accountability, amazing for motivation. Just all around amazing. You and these group of people, some you may know, and some you don’t…you sort of become a little family. Having a bad day? Everyone is there to pic you back up. Can’t find the motivation? Everyone is there to cheer you on and motivate you. Don’t know how to meal plan? We all share ours to help you get started. Can’t figure out what to make for dinner? Recipes are shared all the time and they are usually clean, easy and delicious. Have a small or large victory? Everyone is there to celebrate with you…and that we do! It’s such an amazing feeling to have this place where you can go, where you know you’re not going to be judged, and you can get support, no matter what phase of your journey you are on. There is no stupid question. There is no small accomplishment. Someone is always there to give you an answer or a pat on the back! There’s no jealousy, no competition (ok, maybe a little fun competition) and no judgement. It’s like having a group full of your best friends, who you might not have ever actually met, to go to for support.
And guys? The feedback we’ve gotten from our last few groups have been AMAZING! Lives are being changed every single day. People are realizing what they are capable of. They’re feeling HAPPY and feeling good about themselves again. It’s a fun way to get healthy and work towards you goals. And you’re 10x more likely to stick with a program and succeed when you join a challenge group. Maybe that’s what you’ve been missing?
My next group is kicking off on March 6th. If its something you’d like more information on, or if you want to talk about joining, fill out this form and I will get in touch with you! Summer is right around the corner…let’s get ready together!
