Fitness Challenge Fun For The Holidays

Thursday, December 06, 2012

Awhile back I found and bought two of these board games called "THE FITNESS CHALLENGE GAME"...one for me and one for my BFF. Well, she wasn't in the right headspace and so I tucked it under my bed until yesterday...when I felt she was ready :) And she is!!!!

If you google the game name, you will see what I am talking about. Basically you challenge a friend for 8 weeks to exercise at least 3x a week and you wager...the goal is to get 40 points by the end of 8 weeks. Whomever wins gets the prize they picked from the other person. Each type of exercise counts as Super Star or Star lite...starlite you have to do longer to earn your point.

You pick a fitness level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced)...my BFF is injured right now, so she is a beginner and I am intermediate. So I have to do the activities longer for my point to count.

First and second workout of the week is 1 point and the 3rd workout of the week is 3 points and any additional workout that week is 1 point.

I am looking forward to it and so is she and it'll be fun...especially through Xmas! :) We both chose the wager coupon "I pick the restaurant and you pay"...and we oddly enough both picked healthy restaurants! LOL When you're in the right headspace....you're in the right headspace!!! COMMITTED!!!!!!!

    I've been reading about this game - sounds interesting.

    Question: how do you determine what is your workout?

    I have done a challenge with my nephew's wife (30 minutes of exercise for 30 days) and we both loved it even though we don't live close to each other. We were held accountable by checking in via Facebook. I think activities like this are great!
    You can never be too creative!
