The Whole Life Challenge is an 8 week long game we play with the members of our community that measures body composition improvements, performance gains, and the ability to stay complaint to a lifestyle changing game.
We welcome everybody to join. Here’s an explanation on what the challenge is.
25% – Body Composition Improvement: You’ll take measurements on ‘Day 1’, and then retake measurements on the final day. For example, step on the scale and make note of your body weight. Before and after pictures are encouraged, but not necessary.
25% – Performance Improvement: You’ll perform a basic workout on ‘Day 1’ and retest it on the final day. The workout has to be something that can be repeated to see improvement. Doing a workout for time or reps would be the best idea. For example, you could run a mile or do 5 minutes of burpees. Both of those workouts can be retested to measure improvement. This isn’t a “CrossFit” challenge. Spin classes, yoga, pilates, and Zumba are all acceptable forms of exercise.
50% Lifestyle: Each day during the challenge you’ll be enrolled in a lifestyle game. You’ll get points for following the rules and you’ll lose points for breaking them. Rules include minimum levels of sleep, hydration, and quality controls on nutrition. The isn’t prison (or a “Paleo challenge), it’s just feedback on how you’re living your life. Therefore, playing is possible even if you plan on going on vacation, attending birthday parties or weddings, or would like to drink the occasional glass of wine at a work function or out with friends.
