Private Fitness Challenge #2 (Reserve Your Spot Inside!)

Private Fitness Challenge #2Last month we ran our very first Bloom to Fit Private Fitness Challenge. And I would be lying if I said it was easy. Without a doubt, it was a tough challenge.

But it was also one hell of an experience!

Our incredible participants battled through squats, mountain climbers, and heavy jump rope single unders in the process of achieving some very impressive results.

Thousands of repetitions were completed over the course of 14 days and some major improvements were made.

This month, we’re looking to do it all over again. Only we’re going to do it even better. We’ve made some awesome improvements and are now going to focus on a new set of exercises and training tools.

It’s an exciting time and if you’re ready to make some amazing things happen this April, then I’ve got a great challenge prepared for you.

Let me show you what’s in store.

The 21 Day Kettlebell Swing Challenge [2015 Edition]

21 Day Kettlebell Swing Challenge 2015Hey! Welcome to the second week of 2015, my friend.

Last year (roughly around this time) I ran the very first 21 day kettlebell swing challenge right here on this very blog that you’re reading.

It was, I’m very happy to say, a wonderful success. We had hundreds of participants from all over the world join in on the fun!

So I figured why not do it again this year. Why not make it a bit of a tradition.

And that’s exactly what we’re going to do. Only it won’t be all quite the same this time around. I’ve added a bit of a twist to this year’s challenge. Just a small tweak to the recipe. Nothing crazy. I promise.

Either way, I think you’re really going to enjoy it.

As always, this challenge is going to take some guts to join. I don’t blame you if you want to simply shut down your browser after reading the details of the challenge and call it a day. No hard feelings.

But if you’re looking to get a head start on your 2015 health and fitness goals and you think you’ve got the cajonas to step up and take action, then this is the challenge for you.

Without further ado, allow me to introduce… [Read more…]

The 21 Day Pushup Challenge

21 Day Pushup Challenge HeaderThe time has come once again, my friends.

It’s been a few months since we’ve had a challenge here at Bloom to Fit.

In fact, it was all the way back in June that we had our fun with 21 days of kettlebell squatting. Oh those burning memories.

But today is a new day and we’re going to try something different this time around.

Most of our previous challenges have been focused on developing endurance and/or lower body strength. This time, we’re going to spend a few weeks purely focused on developing upper body strength.

We’re going to utilize one of the most powerful bodyweight training exercises on the planet. No extra equipment is needed.

If you have what it takes to join us, then you’ll be rewarded with a substantial boost in upper body strength, core strength, and ego.

Let’s get started. [Read more…]

The 21 Day Kettlebell Squat Challenge

Kettlebell Squat ChallengeThat time has come again, my friends.

Although we’ve had a couple of months to relax since our last burpee adventure, it’s time to step outside of that comfort zone one more time.

A new challenge is upon us.

And this one, my young grasshoppers, is going to be a doozy.

I’m going to need you to wipe the dust off that beautiful kettlebell of yours the moment you finish reading this and get it prepped for what’s to come. There’s much, much work to be done.

Whether or not you’re a fan of “leg day”, the next 21 days are going to grueling. But don’t let that discourage you. If you have the cajonas to join us and the discipline to stick through this challenge, you will be rewarded with some dandy results.

Your legs may turn into titanium plates. Your buns might start to look like sweet, sweet grapefruits. Your strength and mobility will begin to parallel that of a ninja. And your core will tighten up so much that it will scare the fat right off your body. What more can you ask for before summer?

Let’s get started. [Read more…]

The 21 Day Burpee Challenge

21 Day Burpee ChallengeTake a deep breath.

You can almost smell it, can’t you?

A new season is upon us. As the sun crosses the celestial equator going northward, it rises exactly due east and sets exactly due west.

Fascinating, I know. But it’s what gives us equal amounts of day and night. Can’t complain about more sunshine, can you?

Anywho, while you’ve been enjoying the increasing daylight, warming temperatures, and the disappearance of snow, things have been brewing in the Bloom to Fit laboratories.

A new challenge is upon us, my young grasshoppers. And I hope you’ve got the cajonas to join us once again.

Let’s jump right to the details. [Read more…]

Swinging Around the Globe: The 21 Day Kettlebell Swing Challenge Summary

kettlebell swing challenge summaryOnce again, I’m flabbergasted. There’s no better word to describe it.

Each and every time I run one of these Bloom to Fit challenges, I am completely and utterly amazed at what takes place.

This time was no different.

The 21 Day Kettlebell Swing Challenge was the first challenge of the year and let’s just say that if any of our upcoming challenges show even a trace of similarity, 2014 is going to be one heck of a year!

To celebrate the incredible accomplishments that have been made this past month, I would like to dedicate this post to the 200 + participants of the 21 day swing challenge. You guys absolutely crushed it and I’m proud of all the effort you’ve put in to make this happen.

In this post, I would like to showcase some of the incredible results our participants had, some stories they shared, and obstacles they faced.

Let’s get to it. [Read more…]

Start 2014 off With a Bang: The 21 Day Kettlebell Swing Challenge

21 Day Kettlebell Swing Challenge 275Welcome to the first day of 2014.

What better way to start off a new year than with another spectacular Bloom to Fit challenge.

And let’s be honest here. The timing couldn’t be more perfect.

If you’re like most people up here in North America, you’ve probably spent the last week or so in hibernation mode (err enjoying the holidays).

You’ve been stuffing your face with holiday feasts, lazying around the fireplace watching old Home Alone re-runs, and playing with all the cool toys Santa brought you for being so good this year.

But with 2013 now behind us, its’ time to get back to business.

And I’m offering something that will help you kick start your fitness goals.

Allow me to introduce… [Read more…]
