Let’s elevate together
We know that with any new year comes the desire to rest, start anew, and recommit. That’s why we as a community have always come together to recharge and set that tone together. We’ve done Whole30s, Habit challenges, Meal prep challenges, and more. Every year, we strive to provide best practices for our members. And after last year, we knew we had created the perfect fit no matter what your goals and challenges for 2023 look like.
What is the Elevate48 Challenge?
First, let’s talk about 75Hard
We first heard about Andy Frisella’s 75Hard extreme challenge in 2020. The free “transformational mental toughness program” includes 6 rigid rules to obey for 75 days.
- Follow a diet & consume no alcohol.
- Complete Two 45-minute workouts, and one has to be outside.
- Eat no cheat meals
- Take a progress picture daily
- Drink 1 gallon of water
- Read 10 pages of a personal development book (audiobooks don’t count)
If you break a day, you start over. No exceptions.
This is too extreme. The level of restriction and rigidity could cause you more physical and mental issues than you started with! There is definitely a better way to approach this idea with a more level-headed approach.
The Elevate48 Challenge is a realistic mind and body challenge that can fit into even a busy lifestyle! Over 48 days we focus on a flexible meal plan, workouts, and personal development to help you feel and look your best.
Our “rules” are tailored to each individual to give structure to your days so that you can progress towards your goals without setting you up to try to do more with less. They are:
- Follow a diet that takes an “additive” approach to food/macronutrient diversity: Fats, Carbs, Protein
- Complete pre-/post-workout stretching, recovery, and accessory work
- Complete class workouts
- Spend 15 minutes a day in stress relief (meditation, walks, quiet time)
- Drink 80 oz. water
- Get 6+ hours sleep
- Take a daily Omega 3 Supplement
We are also not about condoning an all-or-nothing mindset. If you break one of these rules on Day 10, get back on track Day 11! And to spice things up this year, we have partnered with area local businesses to help bring you ideas for eating healthy while also supporting our local community.
Accountability and community
Our Nutrition Coaching program is designed to provide you with an easy, science-based approach to nutrition and fueling for workouts, using simple behavior modification strategies to create positive change without the stress of “dieting.” There are many programs that will tell you what not to eat or lock you into a routine full of boxes to check that are unsustainable.
Our challenge will allow all the excitement and comradery that comes with doing something new and challenging together with the individualization to make sure you understand how and what to eat, and how to achieve YOUR goals, one step at a time! Elevate48 Over 48 days we focus on ADDING food, workouts, routines, and personal development to help you feel and look your best. You will be encouraged to:
- Eat a balance of foods in portions that are right for your lifestyle
- Drink more water
