My [Love/Hate] Relationship with Challenges…

We’ve had several inquiries about our next challenge. I wasn’t planning on offering one. I have a love/hate relationship with challenges. However, I gave it some consideration and have decided to offer a Spring 6 Week Challenge in April.

We’ve been offering challenges for the last 8 years out of the 10+ years we’ve been in business. Over the years, my perspective on fitness and nutrition have evolved, especially after going through my own personal weight gain and weight loss transformation.

I understand for the right person a ‘challenge’ will provide motivation to finally get active or break past a workout plateau. I’m going to be offering a challenge for those that need that reboot, need that extra motivation, and need my help.

However, I want to make things clear. Nutrition and Fitness do not have a set start and end date. Many also ask, “what’s the best diet out there?” Should I do Keto? The answer is, the one you can do for the rest of your life. It’s a life long journey. I’m not going to lie to you. You’ll see great results in your first 6 weeks. However, it’s unrealistic to try to reverse years of inactivity in just 6 short weeks. If anyone claims that they can, they’re lying to you…#365dayChallenge #LifestyleChallenge

Fitness is a journey, much like martial arts is a journey….

Being a martial artist from childhood, I went from white belt to black belt. With each belt, you learn skills to build upon, in order to advance to the belt level. You can’t advance to the next belt without learning essential skills such as stance, distance, and learning the basic kicks and punches. I’ve discovered the journey really begins at black belt.

Similarly, fitness works the same. You have to build upon the skills you learn. You have to get the technique and tempo down for each exercise, before you progress to a more challenging exercise. Hopping from program to program doesn’t advance you to the next level and can do more harm than good.

Having said that, if you’re wanting to join my next 6 Week Challenge and understand that fitness and health do not have a set start date and end date, I invite you to book a 1-on-1 Info Session with myself for no charge. The goal of this appointment is to ensure this would be the right fit for the both of us. If it isn’t a good fit, that’s no problem. I’ll do my best to point you in the right direction and answer your fitness and nutrition questions regardless. My goal is to help. I also like to know what your ‘WHY’ for participating in this challenge, so my team and I can meet and exceed your expectations. We’re here for you!

This challenge starts April 8th. If you’re new to ERF, you can learn more about our next challenge here: https://eagleridgefitness.clickfunnels.com/spring-challenge

Have a wonderful rest of your week!
