2020 already started with a bang, and add to the fact that this year the month of February had 29 days and you have total craziness! There was a lot going on this month with some new faces, team competition, and of course, the Annual Party! We definitely took advantage of having an extra day this month and we saw great results because of it. So let's get to it because we have a lot to talk about!
Route 66 update
Since we are only in our second month of the year, it is still not possible for anyone to be on Route 66 yet, but we have people who have already traveled pretty far to this point, that they are getting close! The highways better watch out because Fitness Inspirers like Karen L, Katie B, Suzy S and Marcy M could potentially put their blinker on and start merging by the end of next month!
Getting that Crown update
The "Strive for Five" is up and running and we have some Fitness Inspirers who are already 2 for 2 getting 20 workouts in for the first two months already! So far, Katie B, Karen L, Suzy S, and Marcy M have already earned 2 prongs on their crowns! Earning a prong this month was Abbey C. and combine her with Cindy E and Jamie T who earned a prong last month and that is 7 Inspirers who already have at least one prong! Great job!
Love What Gets You There
When dealing with our Fitness, it truly is a journey. It can be hard at times, but the payoff is so rewarding! Sometimes we need to stop and remember that while we love the results, we also need to love what gets us there and enjoy the journey. February is of course a month of love, so why not love the path? We had some intense Homework and Physical testing which pushed us to our limits. I mean those hovers with your leg up or back?! Come on.... While we knew our HW and testing would be hard, Chris, Nicole and Samantha pushed us so we could maximize our results at the end of the month. Here are just a few highlights:
-Abbey C lost just over 5 total inches!
-Karen L lost just under 5 pounds!
-Becky C tripled her Hover/Plank time! (200% improvement!)
-Becky F lost just over 6 pounds!
-Nicole H lost 3 total inches!
-Melissa M improved her hovers w/a leg up or back by an average of 175%!
Since this was a team inspired month, there was no Top Achiever, but of course there was a team champion! The scoring was based on team weight % improvement, inches % improvement, physical testing
% improvement and attendance. What was crazy is that each team came in first in one category which is awesome! Then the scoring came down to the wire as the results were tight. In the end, team separation was only between a couple percentage points and there was a tie between the Blue and Yellow team! However, you know Kiersten can't have ties, so at the Annual Party there was a minute to win it tie breaker with YELLOW unraveling his streamers the fastest! Congratulations to YELLOW consisting of Abbey C, Michael C, Michele S and Jamie T!
Thank you for lifting each other up and cheering each other on every step of the way! I am so proud of the progress I see in you from month to month. I hope the progress in mindset, physical challenges, adherence, and measurements motivates you as it does me.
