Are you up for a challenge?
At the beginning of every month I do a health and/or fitness challenge in my Facebook group BODY CHALLENGE with Collette. The idea behind this group is to encourage people to get started on their path with exercise and nutrition. In a group setting you can be inspired by each other and gain support from others who have the same goal. There are no requirements at all- anyone can join at any time! It’s all about you vs. you in this group, while creating a supportive atmosphere to keep you motivated. Check it out and invite your friends! I also give away prizes to my weekly winners too because I’m all about urging you to make a positive change for yourself and reward your efforts.
For my October monthly challenge I put together an intense 5 day HIIT routine. This type of exercise is a mix of both moderate and high intensity moves. The idea is that alternating between the two burns more fat. It’s one of the most effective workouts you can do, plus it’s usually done with very little breaks in-between so you get through a powerful routine quickly. At the end of the 5 days I combined each day’s challenge into one full workout, bringing it to a complete HIIT routine made up of 5 circuits that each contain 3 moves. It should take about 12-20 minutes to complete, depending on your speed.
