    The 40 Day Challenge

    October 11, 2016


    I am so excited to be sponsoring the 40 Day Challenge!

    A healthy lifestyle should be fun, and part of that fun is some friendly competition (and prize winning!). So what are we doing this time?

    40,000 calories in 40 days!

    Yup, the challenge is to burn 1,000 calories a day, or the cumulative of 40,000 in 40 days. This is the main category in the challenge, but, there are also 2 other categories you can win in; weight loss and body fat percentage loss. So you can win 3 times!

    For the challenge, you will need:

    • A heart rate belt that calculates calories burnt
    • A Scale
    • Access to a Body Fat measurement tool
    • Determination!

    Daily workouts must be submitted in the form of screen captures of your workout using the app of your choice. Every Friday morning you will be required to submit your weight and body fat percentage readings;failure to do so will result in disqualification.

    Results will be posted every Saturday. Lets do this!
