The thick of summer is upon us and we did not slow down this month! In the spirit of competition, we split our Fitness Inspirers into three teams, Team Pennsylvania, Team Michigan and Team World, and we let the games begin! The team atmosphere kicked up our competitiveness and camaraderie and even helped push ourselves a little harder. A great new feature this month was setting our weekly goals for number of workouts to complete which only helped our accountability. Now let's see what happened!
Need for Speed
While 2020 has certainly been a different year to say the least, what has been most encouraging and inspiring is the speed in which people are getting on to Route 66. Prior to the beginning of June, we already had 8 Fitness Inspirers speeding along having already accumulated 66 or more workouts for the year! Now, this month, we had three new drivers join them, so give it up for Leigh D, Megan S, and Cindy E!
That Prong Life
So far this year, we have really seen people push themselves, getting more workouts in and doing more of what we set out to do. This can definitely be seen as Inspirers strive to get their prongs. We already have three people who have completed their crowns, and now we can add one more! Suzy S completed her fifth prong in six months earning her the Fitness Inspired crown! Woooooooot! To add to that, we had eight other Inspirers make their way to earning their crown as Jenny C, Leigh D, Jim H, Terri H, Marcy M (who already has her crown to boot!), Elizabeth S, Megan S, and Cynthia T get their prongs this month! Way to crush June!
We decided to add a little friendly competition this month to spice up our beach experience. It was a regional throw down as Michigan, Pennsylvania and the World went at it to see who would achieve the most Fun, Accountability, & Results! (R) Even though there was a team winner (which can be found below) I'd say we all won based on the numbers :)
To get us ready for the beach, our homework really got us in to gear. Planks on boats on planks, sprinkled in with pushups, double leg stretches, and rocky abs had our bodies feeling that good sore, and that was just the HW! This month we also saw the return to some live in-person classes, which was incredibly refreshing, and saw casino games make us look at a deck of cards in a completely different way... Now on to the results!
Team Leader Board
The scoring for the teams were broken down into Fun, Accountability and Results. Fun was a spirit/enthusiasm/effort point which our Instructors awarded at the end of each workout; accountability was how well each team member was able to stick to their goals for their weekly workouts; and Results was the average number of workouts for the month for the team, along with weight/inch/physical testing percentage improvement. Here was the breakdown:
Average Team Workouts for the month:
And our Team Winner for the month of June......TEAM WORLD!!!
Give June's Fitness Inspirers some shout-outs, congrats, and encouragement in the comments :)
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.
