What’s a Challenge Group?

Simply put, a challenge group is a support group that helps participants not only achieve fitness goals, but increase knowledge and awareness of exactly what is involved in being truly fit. It is designed to expose you to a lifestyle that enables you to maintain the results you get. It is run by a lead coach or a group of coaches who are looking to invest in you to help you get the results you want.

Participants in challenge groups have purchased challenge packs or have in their possession a TBB workout system and Shakeology. The concept is simple; you give your body the nutrients it needs through Shakeology which helps you stay true to an eating plan that gives you the results you are looking for. Combine that with one of the powerful workouts from Team Beach Body, and you have a trifecta of resources at your disposal for fitness success.

So where does the group come in? The support of the group truly galvanizes individuals together to give accountability, encouragement, and tips to one another for the purpose of strengthening resolve and commitment levels when the going gets tough. You will make friends and come to appreciate that there are others who have struggled with weight loss and fitness just like you.

While there is plenty of serious time in the group, there is also a lot of fun! Wacky Wednesdays, Flex Fridays, and random challenges within the group help remind you that you are doing this challenge to enhance your physical well-being, and possibly to even take your life back.

Interested in joining a challenge group? Shoot me a message or an email and we can talk through your motivations for wanting to be part of the group. We are looking for people who have a strong commitment level to the success they seek. If we are in agreement that you are ready for a challenge group, we can discuss what options would best serve you reaching your goals.

Welcome to Second Chance Fitness!

Much thanks for stopping by! However you got to this page, something health or fitness related drove you here. What do those words truly mean? What is it to be healthy? To be fit? I thought I had an idea of what fitness was, same as I believed if I could simply lose weight it would automatically equate to being “healthy”.

Fortunately, I had a friend who understood my desire to lose weight and was willing to work with me and coach me to set goals that would not only help me reach my weight loss goals, but also learn about true health and real fitness. It was incredibly effective. Over the course of a 60 day challenge, I lost over 20 lbs., and even better dropped from a size 42 to a size 36.

Listen in on my video blog (coming soon!) for the full rundown, but the short version is that I used fad diets to try to regulate my weight and played the yo-yo game we are all so familiar with until I had ballooned up to 276 lbs. I thought I was doing well when I decided to track calories. However, I rarely exercised and had no consistency in my eating habits. I experienced some weight loss, but was still eating garbage and had no real fitness to speak of.

I entered my 60 day challenge with a fair degree of skepticism, but was committed to giving it my all and seeing if I could get results. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Having a comprehensive fitness plan enabled me to get the exercise my body needed as well as get the nutrition I was sorely lacking. Having chocolate Shakeology as my ally, I saw my junk food cravings virtually disappear, and I was motivated to do more and more clean eating. At the end of my challenge, I clocked in at 214 lbs, and was back to a size 36 pants (from 42) for the first time since college.  Best of all, I was feeling great, and knew I had found a sustainable and viable lifestyle that I was excited to maintain.

My journey has just begun, but I am so excited for what is yet to come. Where are you right now? How are you doing with your efforts in fitness? Need a second chance at this whole fitness thing? I would very much love to hear your story and pass along (pay forward, if you will) what was presented to me. Drop me a line and let me know what I can do for you!
