Finalize your goal…Do you want to lose weight? Do you want to tone your arms?  Do you want more energy? What is your ultimate goal? Picking a goal will help keep you accountable. 
Pick your challenge
…How will you achieve your goal? Here are some examples: 30 miles in 30 days (walk or run a mile a day!) or 30 squats for 30 days (perform 30 squats a day for 30 days!) 
Fundraiser…Ask friends and family to support your goal by sponsoring you with a donation to RMHC-SWVA.  Example for each mile you complete in your 30 days a family member may donate $2 for each mile you complete (for a total donation of $60!).

         *FIND A BUDDY! Doing this challenges with someone – even just checking in via text – is super helpful in staying accountable.

Complete a fitness challenge…Anything!!!  What can you come up with?!?!  What about 30 burpees in 2 minutes?  Or 50 pushups?
Challenge your friends or family members to complete the challenge…Want to get fit and have tons of fun with your family and friends? Well, then you are in the right place! Have fun challenging others!  Put a price tag on the challenge!
Fundraiser…After you challenge your friends – if they can’t achieve the fitness challenge (that you completed) they must give a donation to RMHC-SWVA in your honor – however, if they complete the challenge then you must donate in their honor.
