Hey Empower Fitness Challenge-Goers!

The challenge begins this SATURDAY, April 23!!!! Please come in to Empower Fitness to make sure you are signed up for your time slot!

Please read the following directions as it pertains to the 8-week Challenge:

Welcome to the 8-week Challenge! I am so excited that you are partaking in such a fun event that Carpinteria has never done before! At the end of all of this, it is my goal that the challenge has helped all of you reach a higher level of fitness and health! I really want to highlight the winners at the end of the 8-week challenge so please take the challenge very seriously! Remember, we are playing for a gift card to Rincon Brewery and a Massage from Temple Massage of Santa Barbara!!!! Wahoo!

This week we should be prepping our minds and our bodies to take on this 8-week Challenge. This Challenge is about being disciplined inside the gym as well as outside the gym. We only spend ONE hour in the gym a day and the rest are outside in the “REAL WORLD”. For this reason, it is KEY to your success to prepare for this Challenge outside of the gym. You can start by asking yourself: What is in my refrigerator that’s not in the “eating plan”? What is in my pantry? If it’s not healthy or in the “plan”…. and if you don’t want to tell me- then you should probably throw it out! Donate it, do whatever you need to do to set yourself up for success.

No, I’m not trying to be a Nazi about food. I do believe in rewarding yourself, so PLEASE, pick ONE DAY, ONE MEAL out of the week and reward yourself for keeping up with the “eating plan” you have set for yourself. This ONE cheat meal will really help you to get through your week and an occasional reward is a great way to keep yourself motivated and on track!

– What are your personal fitness/health goals for the challenge?
– What are you going to change within your workout program?
– What are you going to change within your diet plan?
– What are you going to reward yourself with for staying on track with your “eating plan”

I look forward to seeing you this Saturday! GOOD LUCK!
