If I signed up late, will I get today’s workout?
You will be sent the following day’s workout via email the next morning. However, the latest Challenge and all workouts from the entire challenge will be posted here – http://challenge.totalfitgroup.com/
After I sign up, what’s next?
The next step is simple, #LetsGetTheWorldHealthy by sharing #TotalFit with anyone and everyone you know who can and should be leading a healthy lifestyle! (YES everybody!!). If the Challenge hasn’t started, be patient, you’ll get emails and further instructions.
Do I need a gym for the workouts or can I do them at home?
Besides the distance running, all the workouts can be done in your home (provided you have enough space).
Will beginners be able to do perform all of the workouts?
We have done our best to have workout options for both beginners and the advanced participants. First things first, everyone should consult their physician before beginning any exercise program. Just use your best judgement. If you can’t finish, then complete as much as you can.
Will you send out a diet for the Challenge?
No, but we will ask you to cut out certain foods for the entire 21 days, and specific foods on special days. There will be more information and instructions on nutrition in tomorrow’s email. Also some days we will provide you with healthy meal options, snacks and recipes.
Is this challenge only for those who want to lose weight?
No, The 21-DAY CHALLENGE is for anyone who wants to kickstart a healthy lifestyle and see results in 21 days! Naturally, some people will likely lose weight depending on their overall level of health and fitness. The #TotalFit mission is all about promoting healthy lifestyle changes. Our main goal is to educate, motivate, and inspire the world to lead healthier lives in the long-term.
Although no equipment is required for the challenge, these basic items are very useful and can improve your results:
- Exercise Mat
- Medicine Ball
- Dumb Bells
- Jump Rope
*If you don’t have this equipment don’t worry, you can find these items at most any sports store this weekend.
What size medicine ball do I need?
They aren’t required, but will add resistance to your exercises. For most people any medicine ball between 6 – 12 pounds should work. Males may opt for medicine ball between 10-20 lbs. Basically, whatever works for you.
How heavy should my dumbbells be?
Again, they aren’t required, and that’s hard to say. But I will say the majority of women use 3, 5, 8, 10 or 12lb dumbbells and fellas usually opt for 8, 10, 12 , 15 or 20′s. (Many of these moves will be new to you so you definitely don’t need to go super heavy. Proper form is crucial.)
What if I can’t afford the equipment needed or just don’t have access?
No worries. but remember “can’t never could” and “won’t never will”! Have a “Can Do” attitude and grab some water bottles filled with water,sand, or rocks as dumbbells, and a book bag filled with books or other items around the house as a medicine bell alternative. Bottom line, please DO NOT email me or my staff with EXCUSES!!! Lets just find a way to make it happen. Remember, ‘Results Start When YOU Do’, so let’s #ShutUpandTrain!
Now it’s time to get your gear together:
- Hair Clip/Tie/Band
