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.

The CHALLENGE:

*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.

The REWARD:

*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.

Good luck!
