12 Days of Fitness Challenge

It’s hard to find time and motivation to workout during the holidays. Just because something is hard doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it. Try my 12 days of fitness challenge. Each workout takes less than 15 minutes. Challenge yourself to stay fit this holiday season! The 12 days of fitness challenge will start on the 20th of December and end on January 1st, a perfect time to set new goals for the new year!

Here’s how it works:

  1. To qualify, you must complete all 12 days.. even Christmas, New Years eve, and New Years Day!
  2. I’m going to hold you all accountable! Either a photo or video of you doing the workout is required all 12 days. Each day you’ll post your videos or pictures on either instagram or facebook and hashtag every post. YOU MUST TAG or HASHTAG! Hashtag to use: #12DaysOfFitnessChallenge or for photos on Instagram you can tag: @fit2commit or FaceBook tag: @fit2commit. Hashtags work best though. I will also accept the photos and videos by email if you’re not comfortable with social media: erica.fit2commit@gmail.com
  3. At the end of the 12 days I will choose a winner! The winner will be carefully picked based on commitment, progress, effort and attitude!
  4. The winner will receive over $300 in prizes including Personal Training (online or in person) from yours truly, a complete nutrition assessment and Fit2Commit apparel!
  5. Have fun with it! Pull your friends or family in for one of the workouts! The more the merrier! Let the games begin…
