The Whole Life Challenge is open for registration today (from 4pm)! Sign up here, and remember to put Crossfit Thames down as your affiliate.
These are ‘The 7 Stages of the Whole Life Challenge‘. This has come from the benefits of accountability and participation…be sure to tell ua in comments what stage you’re at!
2- Pain & Guilt: I’m too (insert yours here: busy, tired, perfect) already to take this on. I can’t do a Challenge in September – I’ve only got 4 more weeks to get ready for it, there’s no way I can be ready in 4 weeks.
3- Anger & Bargaining: That’s not how I already do things! Maybe I’ll watch others do the Challenge, and see if they get any results with all this ‘regular and moderate exercise, improved nutrition, stretching, and fish oils’ sensible approach.
4- Depression: ‘Everyone else is going to rock the challenge, but not me…there’s NO WAY I can do 8 weeks of this. I always (insert your crutch here), I can’t go 8 weeks without it! Ok, I’ll register, but I doub’t I’ll do well. Everyone else is perfect…everyone but me.
5- The Upward Turn: Wait, this is actually pretty cool…everyone else seems pretty excited about the Challenge too they’re even looking forward to it…what would my life look like if I really took advantage of this awesome opportunity? (me: your life would be even more awesome, of course!)
6- Reconstruction: You’re DOING the Challenge (starting with the Prelims on Saturday, September 15) AND…you’re actually living the goals and life that others ENVY. Your friends & family want to register and get in on the awesomeness (and they actually can!).
7- Acceptance & Hope: You have internalizsd the process that we’ve designed to help you live your healthiest life ever. Now, this doesn’t mean you’re perfect. This doesn’t mean you earned a perfect score but are miserable. This means you try hard, cut yourself some slack, and know a ton more about how your body operates, avoid the pitfalls that usually diminish your long term results and kick you off track, and saw some amazing results from the 8 weeks. By now you’ve no doubt inspired others in your to try to live healthier…now they’re not at stage 7…they’re maybe at 2 or 3…and that’s OK – you were there just a few weeks ago, remember?
This is gonna be awesome!
Remember registration is from today to 15th September, and the challenge begins 15th September. So sign up and get your friends and family involved too!
