You maybe know that last year us guys from Your Next Level Fitness Bootcamp took on the Total Warrior Obstacle course – and raised £1200+ for Teenage Cancer Trust…(Click here to see last years VIDEO!)
Challenges tell you a bit about yourself
This could not be said better than a quote before ‘The Traverse’ Obstacle.
When a challenge is asked of you, you can Say:
When you choose “No” – You don’t really gain much.
When you choose “Yes”, You LEARN so much more about yourself - even if you think you fail.
Right now, choose a number of press ups you think you can do. Then do it. Did you get close?
Either way, you are better than before.
If you said 5 and you did 10 – well done – you can do 10 press ups…….
If you said 10 and you did 5 – well done, you can do 5 press ups………….maybe next time you can do 6 or 7!
If you couldn’t do 1…………maybe that’s a wake up call?!
I was particularly pleased with a few other things…..
- Bootcamper Ben finished first in the muddiest wave (last wave!) – Even more astounding is that 3-4 years ago Ben was unfit, inactive and heavier – and now is a running machine!
- Bootcampers Dave and Emma raised over £300 for Hull Animal Welfare Trust
- Bootcamper Emma did the obstacle course for the first time – and had only started running a few months before!
- All Bootcampers (with the exception of Ben!!) tend to not do much running……..or spend more than about 3-4 hours a week training. So this was a push for EVERYONE involved, and shows the attitude that I try to breed at Your Next Level Fitness Sessions.
Hopefully this inspired you or a friend to challenge yourself – be it an obstacle race, a fun run, or a set of press ups!
