September Consistency Challenge

This is often a tough time of year for fitness. You’ve been on vacation. You’re not working out based on swimsuit-related panic. With school back in and people actually starting to work again, your schedule is crazy. Excuses are easy to come by. Well, that’s over with.

The SCC is all about getting some consistency and good decision-making back into your health and fitness routine. It’s also a way for us to drive home a key point: Exercise is probably one of the best things you can do for yourself, but it doesn’t mean you can take your eye off the ball the rest of the day.

The scoring is a little different this time around to account for the fact that a) some people (not saying you specifically….) eat more and b) are less active (again, not singling you out-stop getting so defensive) on days they work out.

Details

The formula is pretty simple. Earn points via exercise, daily activity, and taking advantage of our new (currently free) Regeneration sessions. Lose points by committing food fouls. You’ll be drafted onto a team captained by one of our fine coaches and the teams will compete for all the glory. You’ll email your coach your points by 9am each day during the work week, submitting your Friday, Saturday, and Sunday scores on Monday. Miss a report and take a -1500 score.
