Why wait until January 2020 to get your health and fitness in order when you can start now? We’re firm believers in keeping up healthy workout habits all year round, but if life has gotten in the way or you need some motivation, The Fly Girl 14 Day Challenge returns this November to help you get back on track.
Taking place from 1-14 November, this virtual challenge is a commitment to either:
- Run or walk at least 30 minutes day
- Work out at the gym, at home or a fitness studio at least 30 minutes a day
- Cycle for at least 30 minutes a day
- Swim at least 30 minutes a day
- Cut out a specific junk food, sugar or upping your water intake (daily)
- A combination of all 5!
To stay healthy, the NHS recommends that adults aged 19 to 64 should be active every day, so committing to a daily activity for 14 days could be the start of a new fitness lifestyle.
So, you up to the challenge? Here’s how to get involved:
1. Let the world know
Accountability is everything! Share the pledge badge on your social media, use the hashtag #flygirl14daychallenge and tag a friend or two who might be game.
2. Plan what you’ll do for the 14 Day Challenge
If you don’t fancy running (or walking) daily, there are so many other ways to keep fit. Download the Nike Training Club app for free workouts, try out ClassPass or join a gym. Whatever you do, just decide beforehand so you know what you plan to do each day (and make a note of it in your diary!).
3. Prepare to commit each day
For every day of the challenge, leave your kit out the night before so you’re ready the following day to take care of business! Also, decide if you’ll do the workout in the morning or the evening (or even your lunch break).
4. Get that evidence shot
After each daily activity, share a picture on social media using the hashtag #flygirl14daychallenge.
You got this girl! See you on 1st November for the Fly Girl 14 Day Challenge!
What if I can’t start 1st November?
Ideally, it’d be great if we can start together, but the point of the challenge is working out 14 days in a row – so even if you start a day later or the next week, the key is to commit to 14 days.
Can I mix up the workouts?
Absolutely. It’s 14 days of activity, low or high impact (but stay safe and listen to your body).
What if I forget to workout?
Set yourself reminders on your phone in advance so you don’t forget – or just add an extra day to the challenge 😉
What if I get injured?
You should do activities that you’re capable of doing or have done before (so at the very least, walking! 😉
When’s the next challenge after this one?
