Now leading into the challenge this year we're giving you prep week, which means exactly that, a chance for you to prepare for the upcoming exciting 12 weeks! So, you don't need to wait for day 1, you can start to get organised on September 2nd a whole week before the Challenge starts. During this week it's a great opportunity for you to have a sneak peak and look over training programs, and eating plans. Now is a good time to either join a Gym or buy a few peices of equipment for use at home, such as some Dumbells and Resistance bands. Once you see your training Program,really take the time to familiarise yourself with exercises you may not have done before, ones you haven't heard of or perhaps ones you can't even do, so you can research alternatives instead of need be. It may also be a good time to ask a PT for advice at your gym on the how to's if you're a visual person and need to see the exercises performed, or there's always the forum where we can answer your concerns and explain how to perform different movements! If you think you have chosen incorrectly, once you have set up your profile you have until week 4 check in to change Programs. Nutrition is often a big change for most, and this, in particular, is where people really need to familiarise themselves with the different foods on the plan, quantities and again finding alternatives if there are certain foods you can't stomach or might be allergic to. Start now by ridding your fridge and Pantry of anything sugar laden or any "Junk Food". So with that I'm sure you've all heard the saying "fail to prepare, and prepare to fail". Use PREP week to your full advantage, if you hit the ground running at the beginning of the challenge, it'll take all the guesswork out of week one and you'll be one week closer to looking and feeling the best you ever have!
