I’ve been using Fit2B Studio consistently for almost a year. I’ve reviewed Fit2B Beginning and Fit2B Advancing. I’ve highlighted the Relaxation Pathway, Tummy Safe Path to Great Abs and the Pathway to Amazing Arms. I’ve created my own schedule and combined Fit2B with Couch to 5K training. But I haven’t tackled Fit2B Challenged, until now.
There are currently 12 Fit2B Challenged combos. I’m planned to tackle a four week program: three combos, 2 days a week walking (light cardio or weights would also work), a stretching stretching/relaxation day, and a rest day. I’ll probably take a bit of a break between Christmas and New Years, but I wanted to finish the year out strong fitness-wise.
Do You Feel Ready?
Fit2B Challenged is aptly named. In fact, just looking at it, it feels more like Fit2B Insane (which not coincidentally is the title of a couple of the workouts).
These combos are tough, pretty much a full hour or more of movement. This used to be my regular goal. Now it feels totally unattainable. A whole hour of exercise, that would mean doing it before my kids get up and in spite of the gathering darkness, they are getting up earlier and earlier these days.
Take It a Bit at a Time
Now, let it be said that you don’t have to do these in one sitting if you don’t have the time or are not yet physically fit enough. It still counts. Your body still acknowledges the increased effort even if you can’t do it all at once. When I had gestational diabetes I needed to exercise as much as possible to help maintain my blood sugar. But I didn’t have the energy to exercise for more than 15 or 20 minutes at a time. So I would try to do some exercise after every meal. I often got 40-60 minutes, just not all at once.
However, sometimes a challenge is worth the battle especially at a time when healthy eating and exercise tend to take a hiatus. So maybe you can’t exercise every day, but can you manage three times a week? I’ll be endeavoring to stick to my five days a week goal, but at a minimum I need to accomplish my three challenging combos each week.
Come back to check out my first attempts at these difficult combinations. Will you join me in the challenge?
I’ll be taking a week off from posting about Fit2B next week, but we’ll pick up again the first week in December as we tackle Fit2B Challenged!
