11 Dec 14 – The Whole Life Challenge: What can you achieve in just 8 weeks?


Take a minute to consider something…

If you were at the very top of your health and well-being, how would you feel? What would your family members and friends say about you? How much energy would you have? Would your day-to-day tasks be easier to handle?

Imagine how you want to feel and who you want to be in 8 weeks' time... Does that picture look good??

That’s what joining CrossFit 1864's team for the Whole Life Challenge will help you achieve. Together with the people that you get to train and have fun with every day, you will make a commitment to replace a few negative lifestyle habits with many more positive lifestyle habits. 

The Whole Life Challenge is basically a game that challenges us to “try on” a whole life of health and fitness for eight weeks. As a team, we can win points and lose points (hopefully we’ll win more than we lose!). And the prize for completing the challenge?? Well, it’s who you are and how great you'll feel on 13 March! 

For eight weeks, starting on Saturday 17 January 2015 until Friday 13 March 2015, we’ll work on all the areas of our well-being, such as nutrition, mobility, and of course, exercise, through the Whole Life Challenge. We'll also be putting on special events, additional challenges and posting extra blogs to help you throughout the 8 weeks. 

You can learn more about the Whole Life Challenge by watching the two videos on this page of our website.

Once you watch the videos, join Team CrossFit 1864 here.
