Hi babes! I’m so excited to be starting my first ever at home challenge with you all!
Things will be a little bit different this time around, as I won’t be creating a guide specifically for the challenge like I have in the past. Instead, you can follow either the Get Fit At Home guide or the Work From Home guide starting on Monday, May 4th through Sunday, June 14th!
To be eligible to win a prize at the end, make sure to send your before + after pictures and a short testimonial about your experience to firstname.lastname@example.org when the challenge is over on Sunday, June 14th. I recommend writing down what your goals are for the challenge before starting so you can reflect back on them when the challenge is over.
Your progress photos must meet the following criteria:
- Similar attire in both photos
- Preferably nothing high waisted
- The same back, front, and side angles in both photos, sent in 3 separate pic-stitches
To get the most effective results, I recommend calculating your macros using this calculator, unless you have had an eating disorder in the past or struggle with one currently, in which case I recommend just eating intuitively.
I also recommend joining the facebook group for the challenge here, where you can connect with other girls doing the challenge and support one another! I’ll also be active in the group answering questions and supporting you all throughout the challenge.
How do I enroll?
All you need is a regular subscription to the app! Then, you’ll follow either the Get Fit At Home guide or the Work From Home guide for the 6 weeks the challenge is going on.
Which guide should I choose?
The available guides are similar in their level of difficulty, and differ from one another mainly in their structure and the equipment used. Get Fit At Home utilizes dumbbells, a short looped resistance band, a chair, and a mat or carpet. Work From Home still utilizes dumbbells, a chair, and short resistance bands, but also incorporates more exercises with long resistance bands if you have them. Work From Home is also set up for 4 workouts a week where Get Fit At Home is set up for 5, but you can modify Get Fit At Home to be 4 days a week if you want by adding in some tricep exercises on back days.
Is this challenge designed for building muscle or losing fat?
This totally depends on your goals! Personally, I’m not using this challenge to lose weight, but to stay active during this quarantine and to ideally maintain my current muscle. Whatever your goals, make sure you adjust your macros and cardio accordingly. The calculator linked above can help you do so.
Do I have to join the Facebook group?
It is not required, but if you have a Facebook it is highly recommended. It’s a place where you can chat with other girls to stay motivated, and ask me questions directly if you need to.
What if I have to miss some workouts during the challenge?
That’s okay! Life happens, and it can be hard to stay motivated or find the time to workout while you’re trapped at home. Just make sure to pick back up where you left off. One thing to note is that your progress photos will be due on June 14th no matter what, so if you miss some workouts you may have to end up submitting your “After” photos before you’re actually done with the workouts.
If you have any other questions about the challenge or the app, email them to email@example.com!
