WHAT is the FitPRO Challenge? WHY should you participate?
I hope you enjoyed your summer and were able to spend some time with friends, family, and the great outdoors (maybe some great indoor bars) but now it is time to get back to work! Summer is coming to an end and the holidays will be here before you know it. So we are asking you to take your fitness to the next level and keep it going strong through the holiday months. My partner, Alfio and I have created this challenge to help you get in the best shape of your life. No matter what your current fitness level is, you can always improve something, and we believe that the only way to get better is to step out of your comfort zone and truly challenge yourself to something out of your normal fitness routine.
Our FitPRO challenge is a way to physically and mentally test yourself with actual metrics over a 6 week period. This challenge starts with our “pre-lim” event where participants will experience a guided 30 minute indoor cycling session with specific focus on 3 types of training: speed, strength and endurance. After the 30 minute ride, participants will be accompanied outside for a timed 5K. Runners will have a water station at the halfway point and all times will be recorded by our team of volunteers and trainers. Finally, all participants will complete a series of 5 strength exercises for maximum reps in the time allotted.
All times and repetitions will be recorded so you get your baseline to work from, and THAT’S where the fun starts. All participants have a variety of levels that they can choose from for the remainder of the 6 week challenge. Options include upgrading to training sessions with the FitPRO’s at pura, participating in our group runs, or just the pre and post events. There is something for everyone and our friends over at FitNiche will help us get our feet on track with a running clinic.
At the end of the 6 weeks on Saturday, October 18th all participants will repeat their initial event during our final FitPRO challenge. It will be a tale of the tape as you bike, run and lift your way to the finish line! Afterwards, a member appreciation event will take place with tons of food, drinks, vendor prizes and giveaways for participants in the challenge! Sounds like fun right?
You may be asking, OK….I can do this….so why do I need you? Testing your physical limits against the clock and trying something new to confuse your body is an excellent way to take your fitness to the next level. We will be training for 6 weeks with a group of like-minded individuals all ready to take the next step to a healthier and stronger self!
Or you may be asking why this kind of challenge? Maybe you have done endurance events before like marathons or triathlons. But, are you where you want to be currently? Our bodies are constantly changing and it’s OK to change your mindset with them! What are your goals for your own personal fitness right NOW? If you want to be functionally stronger, increase your cardiovascular fitness and feel better about your health in general, then this event is for you!
Not only are the participants and members of Pura always down for another challenge, but our members are always willing to extend a hand for support to help you get up and over any walls you might hit. Plus, our team of instructors and trainers are dedicated to helping you make this 6 weeks the ultimate transformation you have been looking for (in the kitchen and in the studio)!
So it comes down to what you are looking to achieve in a fitness program. Do you want accountability, educated and trained professionals to push you, a welcome and fun environment AND a killer post event party to celebrate with? Then look no further! Take our challenge and take your fitness to the next level. Test your strength, endurance and speed like never before.
