Whole Life Challenge starts TODAY!
Here are the details for the benchmark workout and measurements.
We will do the challenge workout at 9am at the Murray Playground & Sportsfield three blocks south from the box, between 45th Ave and 45th Rd, 21st St and 11th St. At 10am and 11am we will have regular classes at the same sportsfield, but everyone will do the Whole Life Challenge workout. That said, challenge participants can show up at 10am or 11am, but strongly encouraged to do it at 9am, especially if you or your family/friends have never done kettlebell swings, burpees or shuttle runs. At 9am we will spend extra time going over the workout movements for those who have never done CrossFit.
Challenge participants will be measured after the workout. We will also hold a Q&A session.
WOD: as many reps as possible in 9 min of:
7 Kettlebell Swings, 24/16kg
50m Shuttle Run
USE OR BE USED (from the WLC blog)
The Whole Life Challenge is a tool. A lot like a hammer. When there is a nail to be driven, you grab your hammer and hit the nail -- you don't hit yourself in the head with the hammer! You USE the hammer for the job it's designed to do.
Right now things are the way they are for you. Not bad, but maybe there are some things you are tired of feeling, doing or saying to yourself. That is your nail. The Whole Life Challenge is your hammer.
My question to you is, are you going to use the Challenge or be used by it?
If you are going to play this game as training for your life after the challenge is over, you are using the challenge.
If you are going to play it only to win, you are going to be used by it.
If you are going to embrace the ups and downs as opportunities to learn how to make things work, you are using the challenge.
If you are going to fight against the rules like they are standing in the way of your points, you are going to be used by it.
If you are going to make choices as a way to see how a long term commitment to health works in your whole life you are using the challenge.
If you are going to try to be perfect for 8 weeks in spite of nothing else working for you, you are going to be used by it.
This is not 8 weeks. This is your life. If you want to win, great. But look to see what real winning looks like for you before this starts. Does it look like 8 punishing weeks and "business as usual" after September 15th or does it look like building a sustainable practice of health where you are 100% in charge of your results?
Yes, the Whole Life Challenge "winners" get prizes. But everyone who takes this challenge on 100% will walk away with something far more powerful than any external reward.
You walk away with freedom. You walk away with choice. You walk away with your whole life.
