Why should I participate?
The Whole Life Challenge is an opportunity to change your life for the better. Participating in this 8 week event will give you an understanding of how your body can work at it’s optimal performance level. The length of the challenge will allow you to break those bad habits that have been plaguing your everyday life, probably without you knowing it. This challenge encompasses a lot more than just diet. Points can be earned for exercising daily, mobilizing, and taking supplements. The points are based on an honor system and measurements of your waist, at the belly button, and legs, at the thighs, will be taken. We are also doing a baseline workout that will be announced at the info session. The same workout will be tested again at the conclusion of the challenge. The prizes for this event are in the works, but I can assure you that they will be of epic proportion.
We have received many questions about how the challenge works. There’s a lot of information to cover, so we are going to have a Q&A information session on Monday, April 28th at 7:30 P.M. You can follow updates for the event on Facebook here. The FAQ and Rules section on the Whole Life Challenge website are a great reference for how the scoring and flow of the overall competition works.

Personally, I know that I have bad habits, I just cant seem to break them. Diet has always been the most difficult part of my overall health and fitness plan. I love food and I have an insatiable sweet tooth. I’m really looking forward to using this event as motivation for myself to lose a few pounds. I know how hard it is to lose weight. I’ve struggled with it my entire life. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t look at myself in the mirror and wonder what a skinnier me would look like. I know it’s a terrible circle to be in, and thinking that way certainly doesn’t help. Ok… onward and upward. What does this challenge give you an opportunity to change?
