Challenges

Join our virtual challenges to keep you motivated and on track all year long with the support of active and adventurous minded people just like you!

These challenges will be hosted on our Life’s 2 Short Fitness Facebook page  and occasionally Strava (to track activity and for added accountability) where you can connect with other members to motivate and support each other.

Challenges last 30 days and cost less than $10.  They include weekly workouts, recipes, articles and training tips and group support and camaraderie!

“10,000 steps a day!

Rack up 10,000 steps (or about 5 miles) every day of November!  This challenge includes a private Strava group where you can track your steps/mileage for added accountability and cheer on other group members.  We will also be posting regular workouts and mini challenges to keep you on track and motivated during the dark, cold days.  Learn more, sign up now HERE.

“Do something Active every day!”

do-something-active-every-day

Join this social virtual challenge where we will motivate and encourage each other to stay active during the darkest days of the busy holiday season!  Anything goes for this challenge as long as it is at least 30 minutes (according to the Surgeons general, American Heart Association and most other medical bodies out there that is the amount of daily exercise we need to prevent chronic disease and to look and feel our best!).
Walking, swimming, biking, strength training, yoga, snowshoeing, running, boxing, you name it, as long as you are moving for 30 minutes it all counts!
This challenge includes a private group with built in accountability and support, 1-2 workouts a week and some fun mini challenges.

Past challenges:

July 2016 “Everest” challenge: 
everest challenge

How much elevation can you gain in one month?  It’s officially summer and that means its time to hit the trails!
Set a goal and then see how much elevation you can get in one month.  Run, walk, hike or bike!

Use an app like Strava or a Garmin to track your elevation gain during your workouts and then download our nifty calendar to track your progress.

We will be awarding the first person who gains the equivalent elevation as climbing Mount Everest, 29,029 feet (or the person who gets the closest by the end of the month) a package of prizes from our partners including gift certificates for new shoes, fitness classes, apparel, race entries and more!!
