Finish Strong

We are moving into the FINAL WEEK of the Challenge! Let’s stay the course, Team! We’ve faced challenges and setbacks, but the choice is yours of what you will do in this moment. Will you give up on your commitment to your health? Or, will you finish the race set before you?

Make up your mind in this moment to complete your five workouts this week. Right now, schedule them into your calendar and KEEP these appointments with yourself. Check in each day with the Team to motivate them as well as yourself. Together we can FINISH STRONG!

The goal of the Power-Up Fitness Challenge is to complete 5 Daily Workouts (You can’t double-up in a day to make them up. We’re looking for five days of activity.)

Week 5 Power-Up Fitness Challenge Team:

We’d love for YOUR name to be here!

Week 5 Results


All fitness levels can participate in the Power-Up Fitness Challenge because you choose your own workouts based on your interests and abilities. The Team includes yogis, walkers/hikers, yard-workers, ping pong players, elliptical enthusiasts and Crossfitters! The goal is consistent, daily activity.

Powering UPwards!

Today kicks off THE FINAL WEEK of the 6 Week Power-Up Fitness Challenge! Your Week 5 investment will be put into your “bank” if you met the goal or into the “pot”, if not. Your Week 6 investment of 0.5 SBD is due TODAY and will be held for you as incentive to meet your goal. All you need to do is follow-through with YOUR COMMITTMENT to workout 5 days this week. Complete ANY workout you choose.

FINAL WEEK: Be thinking about and writing your 6 Week Challenge: Results Post! The Team Pot (currently standing at 4.5 SBD is up for grabs!) This post will be judged by me as the MOST INSPIRING, not necessarily the most successful. I’d love to see photos or share metrics of progress or lessons learned and habits transformed...be creative! Please publish your post on your blog and link it in the Comments of this post no later than 11:00PM GMT Sunday, May 27th to be considered for the Prize.

What You Need To Do

This goal IS achievable. The key is PLAN and STICK TO YOUR PLAN. We’re also developing character by committing to a goal and following through with what we say we’ll do.

Action Steps:

  • Send your 0.5 SBD to @coachjj TODAY to claim your spot in the Challenge
  • Comment DAILY on THIS post in your own comment thread stating what # workout you’re completing, to keep a running tally of your workouts for the week. For example, @andysantics did an excellent job of this in her comment thread:
  • Comment on other challengers threads to offer encouragement and support
  • Write your “Results” post and publish no later than 11:00PM GMT Sunday, May 27th on your blog with a link in the Comments of this post

At the end of the week, if you meet the goal your 0.5 SBD goes into YOUR “bank” to be returned to you at the end of the Challenge. If not, it goes into the “Team Pot” to be used as a prize pool for the Most Inspiring “Results” post at the end of the Challenge (as voted on by me).

Let’s Do This

I’m excited to see what we do this week as a Team. TOGETHER we can achieve our goals. I’m committing to working on my gymnastics skill training in addition to my three high intensity workouts and yoga. What are YOU planning to achieve?
