It may be holiday season, but summer’s also the perfect time to get our fitness habits back on track. Need motivation? Join our quick and easy Fly Girl 7 Day Challenge. Kicking off on 1st August, you can either:
- Run or walk at least 30 minutes day
- Workout at least 30 minutes a day
- Cycle for at least 30 minutes a day
- A combination of all 3!
And for this challenge, we’re including daily a bonus exercise: a 30-60 second morning forearm plank to compliment our workouts and show our core some love! Planks are great for stability, strengthening and toning your abs, and improving your posture – and they can also prepare your body for more challenging core work.
To stay healthy, the NHS recommends that adults aged 19 to 64 should be active daily, so committing to moving for 7 days could help you kickstart or maintain a fitness lifestyle. 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 #flygirl7daychallenge and tag a friend who might be game.
2. Plan what you’ll do for the 7 Day Challenge
Setting calendar reminders or using a journal can help you plan to succeed. We also love these apps for inspiration:
FitOn app – a brilliant selection of workouts, with the loveliest trainers
ClassPass – strong selection of live streamed workouts, from some of the best studios in London and beyond
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 #flygirl7daychallenge so we can cheer you along the way.
You got this girl! See you on 1st August for the Fly Girl 7 Day Challenge!
What if I can’t start 1st August?
We love starting our challenges together, but if you begin a day later or the next week, the key is to commit to 7 days.
Can I mix up the workouts?
Absolutely. It’s 7 days of activity, low or high impact (but stay safe and listen to your body).
What if I forget to work out?
Set yourself reminders on your phone in advance so you don’t forget.
What if I get injured?
You should only do activities that you’re capable of doing or have done before. Make sure you stretch beforehand and avoid over exerting yourself. This is only 7 days of movement, so respect your limits.
