#KNTX60 - the KINETIX 60 Challenge with Melissa
In this episode, Melissa and I sit and discuss the details and the idea behind our upcoming #KNTX60 Challenge. Each of our clients will be automatically included in this challenge, there is no cost but there are huge benefits to completing it. The goal is simple, complete 5 daily “tasks” every single day for 60 days in a row. This is a way to build mental toughness and your ability to take control over decisions around not only your health and wellness but your life in general. The tasks are relatively simple, competing them every day for 60 days straight will be incredibly challenging for most of us. We will be joining you all on this journey and we encourage you to find a friend or group of friends to help hold you accountable. There will be some huge benefits to those who actually complete the 60 days straight with 100% compliance. This challenge was inspired by the 75Hard Challenge we had heard about, we adapted it a bit to make not our own. Your daily requirements will be as follows: 1-Drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water (minimum); 2- 2x30 min or more exercise/movement sessions each day (elevated breath and HR, break a little sweat), at least 2x’s per week these need to be at KINETIX and 1 out of the 2 daily sessions needs to be performed outside; 3- Reflect with Gratitude, write down 3 things you are grateful for every day (they can’t be the same thing every day); 4- Develop and stick to a 1Hr nighttime routine before bed, the only rules are NO SCREEN TIME for that hour and you need to read 10 pages of non-fiction (preferably something in the realm of personal and/or professional development); 5- Food/Nutrition, maintain at least a 12 hour “fasting window”, eat 1 cup/fist size serving of veggies EVERY MEAL, no more than 4 alcoholic drinks total each week. Remember the goal is all of these things EVERY SINGLE DAY for 60 days. Let’s do this everyone! Challenge starts November 12th, step up to the plate!
