Okay, so here’s the deal:
The Whole Life Challenge is basically a game that challenges you to “try on” a whole life of health and fitness for eight weeks. It starts on January 16th and ends on March 11th, just in time for spring, tees and shorts.
So just for a minute consider something…
Consider who you want to be on March 11th . If you were at the very pique of your health, what would you feel like? What would your family members and friends say about you? How much energy do you have?
What do you look like on March 11th?

“The challenge made me concentrate on eating healthier, and drinking healthier. Getting daily exercise and stretching was great, and I started to take vitamins daily. I plan to continue the challenge on my own”Joe Sample

“The biggest thing I got out of this challenge was learning I can say no to certain foods. I never realized how many times I am tempted to eat good food until you start having to say no to it. It feels so much better to say no and not eat something you really want, than wish you hadn’t. I definitely still indulged in food, but tried to have a ‘sweet’ meal on the weekends. It helped me stay focused during the week.”Erika Brighi

“Making relatively small changes can have a positive impact. The hardest part was giving up sweets – I have a serious sweet tooth. However, once I started the WLC, I didn’t find myself craving them anymore. It was definitely easier than I anticipated. The easiest thing was staying motivated. Once I started seeing results, it made buying in to this program very easy. Now that it is over, I will continue to work on my nutrition and work hard at the gym, with a goal of doing more Rx workouts.”DOUG RINKER
Lost 3” off hips and waist| Improved 1.5 mile run, plus 25 ab mats and 11 HSPU by 2 minutes and 16 seconds.
“This summer my husband has been at the Law Enforcement Academy. He’s gone Monday-Friday so during the week it’s just me, my 17 month old and our dog. I needed something to help me get out of my rut. I was long expired on the “I just had a baby” excuse. The WLC came at just the right time. I work full time and then have no breaks once work is over until the little one goes to sleep. What I learned was that even if it’s only 10 minutes, that 10 minutes made a huge impact on how I felt. I’m also trying to acknowledge that life is crazy and if I eat something I probably wouldn’t consider healthy, no worries, just make a better choice next time. The WLC was a great experience and really helped me become more aware of those choices I make each day.”KATIE PATTERSON .
