Do you wonder why we get into these downward spirals? We try and fail at diet after diet and then we expect to fail in every area of our health. I had the biggest lucky break of my life when I discovered The Beachbody challenge groups. Month by month they break that cycle. You get everything you need to create progress. Every month you build on that progress, and create predictable successes so that you know and I know that we can both succeed under the hardest of times. It's called resilience. These programs have helped me to lose over 40 lbs and over 32 inches in one year. Without stress, in 30 minutes a day from home, and without increasing my food budget at all.
Do you want to be resilient?
To do so, incorporate the following into your daily life:
Get enough sleep and exercise, and learn to manage stress. ...
Practice thought awareness . ...
Practice Cognitive Restructuring to change the way that you think about negative situations and bad events.
Learn from your mistakes and failures. ...
Choose your response.
These things are so much easier said than done. For me the support of the group makes growing in these areas possible and now I want to share that blessing.
You may have heard about a Challenge Group from me or in a post, but not fully understand what they entail. Good news. You’ve come to the right place. I’ll tell you how a Challenge Group works, the goals of Challenge Group, as well as how you can save money in a Challenge Group by buying a Challenge Pack. Let’s get started.
What is a Challenge Group?
At it’s essence, a Challenge Group is an online fitness challenge, usually held in a private Facebook group, where a coach is helping people with three things: Exercise, Nutrition, and Support.
1) Exercise. There is no question that Beachbody offers some of the best, if not THE best, workouts on the planet. From Active Maternity to 21 day fix to T25 their workouts set the bar. I’m currently working through Shaun week and am loving it. If there are better workouts out there, I’m not aware of them (feel free to tell me about them). With a Challenge Group, you’ll be working through one of these home fitness programs which, for many people, have been life-changing.
2) Nutrition. 60% of your success will come from proper nutrition. Fortunately, Challenge Groups have that covered as well. Shakeology is the most important supplement I take. It’s a supplement shake made from whole-food sources, packed with antioxidants, super foods, pro/pre-biotics, and much more. It helps keep my ravenous hunger at bay, replaces my multivitamin and omega 3 (including folate), helps with digestion, and perhaps best of all, tastes fantastic.
3) Support. Challenge Groups generally consists of 20-30 participants who want to go through a series of home fitness programs to create a sustainable healthy lifestyle. We have them work through the journey together by doing required daily check-ins in our groups.
Accountability is crucial when going through any kind of exercise program, let alone a home fitness program as challenging and rewarding as these. Get a group all doing the same thing at the same time, encouraging one another and holding each participant accountable, and you have a key ingredient to success. Not only will the group support each other but the Coach will also provide one on one help, answer questions, encourage and motivate, and check in to monitor your success.

You have to be using a Beachbody program and ideally, having Shakeology as a meal or snack replacement EVERY SINGLE DAY. Why?…Because in order to get the best results, you HAVE to have a combination of a great workout program (Active Maternity, TurboFire, 21 day Fix, Piyo, etc.) and Nutrition (Shakeology). Shakeology has become my favorite supplement. And as I mentioned, it’s whole-food based, making it hard to even classify it as a supplement. This is what I use to get the best results and it’s what I recommend to my friends, family, and people I coach who want the same thing. Our goal is to get you looking and feeling your best. The combination of Shakeology and a home fitness program (that fits your needs) will get you there.
NOTE: Not every Coach requires Shakeology in their Challenge Groups. I do for month one, unless you have serious consideration religiously or because of allergens/ celiac, because that’s when I’ve seen the best results for the participants. Plus, I want my clients FULLY committed, not just kinda-sorta. Getting on Shakeology helps me see that. And before you balk at the price, read the cost of Shakeology.
You have to be consistent with your workouts and nutrition and you have to post that you did so in a Facebook Group. That means that you will need to follow the workout schedule and follow the nutrition guide. The nutrition guides are designed specifically for the workouts for a reason. USE THEM!
You must post at least ONCE per day in the Facebook group. If you are not posting, it shows that you aren’t committing to the challenge, to the other members of the group, and to your coach. It shows that you are losing motivation and/or are struggling, and if that begins to happen you will get a message from yourCoach, getting you back on the bandwagon. If you don’t post you will also be letting the group down because they need you to be there to help support them as well. If you are struggling, then post. If you are losing motivation, then post. If you are killing it, then post. Don’t deprive someone else the opportunity of being encouraged or of encouraging you.
FITNESS + NUTRITION + SUPPORT = SUCCESS
