UPDATE: The #Fitbit2014 Challenge has officially come to a close. This week’s winners are Brian Griffin, @AmySader and James Carter.
But even though the official challenge is over, we’ll continue to host expert tips and advice throughout 2014, so stay tuned for good stuff all year long. The group challenge will keep on going every month, so join in!
Every Monday for six weeks starting January 6, we’ll launch a new weekly challenge for #Fitbit2014 to get your thinking more simple habits and less big resolutions. This week’s challenge arrives from renowned personal trainer Harley Pasternak.
There’s a seemingly endless amount of ways to work out, yet we all fall victim to routines. It happens. We hit the gym and do our regular weight, cardio, and/or movement circuits. And while routines can be a good thing, our bodies and muscles—just like everything else in our lives—crave change.
Let’s break the mold and try something new this week. We brought celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak on-board to share a few of his favorite moves. We’re calling them, “Harley Pasternak’s Moves of the Week!”
So start small. Add one new move to your next workout. Even adding one new exercise will activate new muscle groups and spice up a stale routine. Plus, change can help trigger excitement and motivation, which leads to even better effects from your workout.
So get inspired by Harley’s first move: The Sumo Squat.
What new move are you adding to your workout this week? We’ll be back with more Harley moves this week.
Remember, small steps can equal big change and while it’s our final week of the #Fitbit2014 challenge, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep the momentum going! We’ll continue to offer training and health advice throughout the year, featuring expert tips from Fitbit athletes, trainers and ambassadors along the way.
