Most, if not all, people have experienced setting goals that they ultimately failed to follow through with in the end. Whether the particular goal focuses on training, nutrition, or self-care, it can be difficult to stick to and deflating to surrender to the idea of failure.
Here at F45 Training, we believe that setting realistic goals is a healthy thing to do, and that sticking to those goals is the ultimate gift we can give ourselves! That’s why we created the F45 Challenge, a nutrition and training program that focuses on overall, comprehensive well-being. Our 45-day Challenge helps people create realistic goals and gives them the accountability they need in order to achieve them. Here’s how we created a system that works and helps our members feel like they are a part of something bigger than themselves through our community:
The Psychology Behind a Challenge
Did you know that people who are a part of a community or accountability group are 65% more likely to achieve their goals than people who are going at it alone? This gives members who belong to fitness communities a significant leg up over people who choose to work out in a silo or completely on their own.
F45 takes pride in the community that we have built from the ground up, especially when it comes to our Challenges. For starters, our 'Challengers' are encouraged to commit to 45 days of motivating themselves and those around them. For the members who choose to take in-person classes in our studios, they will start to get to know their fellow classmates and form bonds with them over their common goals. The members who choose to do online and at-home workouts are equally as encouraged to connect with fellow members through social media or by checking in and tracking their progress.
Community can change lives and be the deciding factor between breaking a promise to yourself and achieving your goals to become a better you.
Simply Put: Our Challenges Work
Our Challenges have morphed over the past several years into one of the most exciting things that we have to offer at our F45 Training studios. Our members jump at the chance to be a part of our 45-day Challenges because they know that it will give them amazing results, allow them to recognize the strength within, and provide them with the tools they need to become their best selves. Here’s how our Challenges work:
- Training: Whether our members choose to train in-studio or opt for at-home workouts, we keep them on point with our carefully designed and programmed training. The workouts are fast-paced, sweat-inducing and calorie torching, leaving our members feeling like they are on top of the world at the end of a 45-minute session. Not only do our members feel satisfied after their workouts, but they leave wanting more and counting down the seconds until their next training session with us!
- Nutrition: Have you ever heard the saying: ‘you can’t out-train a bad diet’? Well, we happen to agree. Our trainers and nutritionists have put together recipes that fit a variety of dietary needs and will fuel you to get through your days—workouts and beyond. What you put in your body is just as important as how you choose to move it. Don’t skimp out when it comes to putting in the work where it matters! Our team can help you get to your goals by way of your stomach.
- - Accountability and Tracking: As mentioned above, accountability is key. Our Challenge tracking tools allow our members to track their progress, nutrition habits, training progression and overall health and well-being. Our unique point system allows our members to track in real time how they are measuring up to their goals, while giving them the accountability they need to stay on (or get back on) track!
The Bottom Line
The F45 Challenge has become one of the most popular things that we offer our community. For our members, the Challenge is a way for them to get back on track and achieve their desired results. They yearn for the accountability and can’t wait to jump into a fun training schedule. They truly thrive off of these Challenges.
For our franchise owners, this is another way for them to show their local communities just how incredible our training programs are. Our Challenges serve as an additional source of revenue for our franchisees, as people sign up for the 45-day training program on top of their monthly memberships. Additionally, as more and more members sign up and love our Challenges, they are more likely to spread the word and recruit other people within the community. Paired with community outreach and marketing campaigns, studios can potentially see a large increase in revenue, all thanks to our Challenge program.
Want in on the fun to see what it’s all about? Our next Challenge starts January 18th and we would love to have you join us. Click here for more information. We can’t wait to train with you and change lives together!
