7 Day Fitness Challenge Day 1
Welcome to Day 1 of your fitness challenge! If you’re ready to get started, read through the challenges listed below, make any adjustments you need and get it moving.
Your Active Challenge
Accumulate at least 10 minutes of walking up stairs or hill-climbing.
You can do this all at once or throughout the day, but make sure you keep track of the time. If you don’t have stairs or a hill nearby, try 10 minutes of very brisk walking or create your own Active Challenge.
Just make sure it’s at least 10 minutes.
Your Flexibility Challenge
Perform these stretches at least once today.
As always, feel free to do any stretches you like!
Your Mind/Body Challenge
Find a quiet place to sit and close your eyes. Breathe deeply and focus on your breath by counting to three for each inhale and three for each exhale. Continue this for at least one minute (or more if you have the time). If your mind wanders, notice what you’re thinking about and then gently focus on your breath.
If you have a hard time finding a quiet place, try your car, the bathroom, your desk during a lull or, if you’re at home, a time when the kids are occupied.
