Hi everyone!! I’m so excited for another at home challenge! I know that finding the motivation to work out at home can be tough, and I cannot wait for the support and shared accountability that these challenges bring.
I will be creating a 4-week-long program that will be published into the app a few days before the challenge starts on Monday, October 26h! All you have to do is get a membership to the CCFIT app, remember to take a “before” photo if you want to be considered for a prize at the end, and start alongside everyone else on that day. The challenge will end on November 22nd.
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, November 22nd. You don’t have to send in anything until that time! 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 the Fall Challenge guide that is released a few days before the challenge starts.
What equipment will I need to do this challenge at home?
All you will need is some dumbbells (or any other heavy objects you can find around your home to lift), a small loop resistance band, long loop resistance bands, a chair or bench, and a mat or soft floor!
What will the structure of this challenge be?
There will be 4 days of workouts per week – Day 1: Legs & Booty, Day 2: Chest & Shoulders / Abs & Cardio, Day 3: Legs & Booty, Day 4: Back & Arms / Abs & Cardio. The other 3 days of the week are rest days for you to take whenever you feel like you need them. If you want to supplement this program with other cardio or workouts on your rest days, feel free, though it is by no means necessary.
Is this challenge designed for building muscle or losing fat?
This totally depends on your goals! 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 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 November 22nd 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!
