What is the MAIN Ingredient of our Upcoming Challenge…

What is the MAIN Ingredient of our Upcoming Challenge…

In regards to being healthy and FIT; I really feel most people know what to do. So why do they feel they are not in ‘good enough shape’?

 

Once you reach a certain level of knowledge and experience, the missing link is no longer a new exercise program, the perfect nutrition plan, or a new supplement to try.

The one thing you’re missing is this: being accountable—to someone or something—for your workouts and nutrition.

“Accountability is the acknowledgment of responsibility for your actions with the obligation to report, explain, and be responsible for the resulting consequences.”

In other words, accountability keeps you consistent […] Read more

Fit Chic’s Favorite Nutrtion Picks ..

Fit Chic’s Favorite Nutrtion Picks ..

Since Monday I talked about what to eat to fuel your body … I thought I would share some of my favorite foods I have found to be both beneficial and delicious!

Leading down danger aisles where your will power is over taken by the smells, and colors appealing to the eye.

Here are some great choices to stay on track that I really enjoy for each category!

Why are We Running a Challenge at All?

Why are We Running a Challenge at All?

There is a lot of effort that goes into running a Challenge (even one as well-organized as the WLC). Why bother at all?

While people don’t join a gym or go to work each day in order to participate in a Challenge, they do come to lead a better life. They come for leadership. They come to learn and contribute and be fulfilled. They come for more.

Participating in the Whole Life Challenge might be completely outside the context of what they think they need, but more likely than not, it contains one (or more) of the things they’re missing from their […] Read more

Become a PRIORITY in YOUR Life!

 

Monday: (Strength Day) –  Clean & Jerk: Part A: Building to 1-rep max. Part B: Pairing the C & J with running. Don’t waste your energy on failed reps. Rest and just concentrate on making good reps. Pushing to failure is a waste of time and energy and significantly increases your risk of injury…

Don’t Worry .. Be Happy CPM!

Don’t Worry .. Be Happy CPM!

When I was reading my “Darren Daily” this morning he had a quote from the legend Jim Rohn.

“In order to be happy you have to choose to be happy, you have to plan to be happy, and prepare to be happy then you will find Happiness.” – Jim Rohn

I believe so many of us “expect” happiness and are not wiling to go out and find it.

Do you even know what makes you truly happy? That is the first step to ask yourself the tough question ..

“What is it that makes me truly happy?”

What small habits or choices can […] Read more

“Ahh man, I don’t want to cut this out of my ‘diet’”
“I’m going to be on vacation for 7 days during the challenge.”
“There is my brother’s wedding.”
