March Madness 2014
Every year my clients participate in my MARCH MADNESS CHALLENGE so I thought I would share the idea again for you to try and/or share with your own clients. It is hard to believe that March is just around the corner.
*For the month of March you need to exercise 6 days a week allowing one day of complete rest. Exercises can include your days lifting, training with a trainer, taking a class, going for walks, skating, skiing, swimming, etc. If you already work out 6 days a week then challenge yourself each workout – add a set, up the weight or add that one extra hard rep (you can always do one more rep).
*keep track of your workouts and progress.
*EXTRA BONUS – set a goal and work towards it for the month. Example, lose 2-3 pounds, try to set a new PR or work up to a set mileage goal for rowing or running.
*My clients who participate purchase a small gift – this can be anything – something funny, journal, workout socks, spa goodies, books, gift certificates, etc. They bring the gifts in wrapped during the 1st week of March. I hold the gifts.
*at the beginning of April we have a TEAM WORKOUT.
*I bring the wrapped gifts to the TEAM WORKOUT and participants get to pick from the gift basket as a reward for their hard work during MARCH MADNESS.
ARE YOU READY:
*round up your family and friends.
*have FUN – buddy up and work together.
*set some goals and aim for success!!
This year I am holding an extra challenge. Each participant is keeping track of how many burpees they can do during the month of March. The winner receives a free training session with me. You could set a goal for a certain number and then reward yourself with a massage or some other reward you would enjoy.
