Try the 5% Challenge.....Summer sign up is open!

Sunday, May 25, 2014

The 5% challenges are a fun way to meet new friends, learn how to incorporate healthy habits into your lifestyle, and lose weight.

Team members will work towards losing 5% of their starting weight in 8 weeks by participating in team challenges that focus on exercise & healthy lifestyle habits.

The upcoming Summer challenge starts in a few weeks, and it will be my 7th one. I've found the 5% challenges to be a great way to stay motivated as well as learn tips and tricks on healthy living from others.

Are you up for the challenge??

All you need to do is click the link below and join the Summer 5% Challenge team. In that team, you'll find all the information about how the challenge works, etc.

During the open signup period, there will be pre-work assignments (goal setting, etc.) that you will complete before the challenge starts. After the signup period, you'll be invited to join a team that you will join to compete in the challenge. The individual teams are private, so what you post there cannot be seen by anyone not a member of that team.

We compete by traveling virtually all over the world. Our starting point for the Summer challenge will be Copenhagen (our finishing point from the Spring challenge). I hope to see you there!
