I Like To Move It, Move It – The 100 Days Challenge

by Dana on January 13, 2011

Every January, the gym is packed with people who have resolved that their health and fitness will no longer take a backseat. Some people have detailed goals while others leave them more open-ended trying not to apply too much pressure for fear of failure.

And then early-to-mid February rolls around the gym falls back into its regular rhythm. The lines for the treadmill aren’t out the door and the free weights are stacked neatly on the racks where you normally find them.

The best of intentions don’t guarantee success therefore many people just aren’t able to meet their goals. I attribute it to trying too much too fast. In addition, a common misconception is ‘if I can’t get in a real workout, why bother?’ and people forget that the most important thing to do is move, intentionally.

John Bingham has a solution for this pitfall. He created the 100 Days Challenge in which he invites you to,

“move – intentionally – for 30 minutes a day for 100 days in a row. It doesn’t matter what it is. You can move for 30 minutes once, 15 minutes twice, or 10 minutes three times. You can park your car and walk around the block on your way to work. You can take your dog out for a walk. You can dance, or skip, or do whatever makes you happy. You just need to move.”

I am quite enamored by the simplicity of it all, aren’t you?

If you’re interested, get moving and join the fun on his Facebook fan page.
