Okay ladies, now let’s get in formation: the Fly Girl 30 Day Challenge is back this spring to help you reboot your health and fitness for 30 days. Taking place from the 1-30th May, this virtual challenge is a commitment to:
- 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
- Cycling for at least 30 minutes a day
- Swim at least 30 minutes a day
- Cutting out a specific junk food, sugar and 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 30 days could be just the thing to kickstart or maintain a new lifestyle of fitness.
So, you up for 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 #flygirl30daychallenge and tag a friend who might be game.
2. Decide what activities you’ll do for the 30 Day Challenge
If you don’t fancy running or walking daily, there are so many other ways to stay active. Download the Nike Training Club app for free workouts or you might even want to try out ClassPass or join a gym. And of course, there’s our new series of Rise + Shine Brunch Runs at Peckham Palms 😉 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 #flygirl30daychallenge.
We’ve got this! See you on May 1st for the Fly Girl 30 Day Challenge!
What if I can’t start May 1st?
Ideally, it’d be great if we can start together, but the point of the challenge is working out 30 days consecutively – so even if you start a day later or the next week, the key is to commit to 30 days.
Can I mix up the workouts?
Absolutely. It’s 30 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 😉
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?
