#Fitbit2014 Challenge – Week 6: Try a New Exercise with Harley Pasternak

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. Stay up to date with the Fitbit Blog for the latest.

Don’t forget to share your results using #Fitbit2014 on Facebook, Twitter,  Google+, and/or Instagram. For the final week, we have 3 Fitbit products up for grabs.

  • Question: I do the bulk of my exercise in the pool. The description says it’s water resistant. Is that good enough for using it in the pool? Otherwise, my calorie count will not be accurate.

  • I would really like to be able to buy different color holders for the fitbit one. How about doing some new colors other than black and burgundy of which I have.

    You have cool colors in the other fit bits???????

  • I have a Fitbit Flex. Can it be used in a swimming pool? I wear it in the shower, sometimes, without a problem, but that’s not the same as submerging it in water. We went to a water park recently and I took it off to be on the safe side.

  • I wish they made the zip water proof. It’s the first thing I put on in the morning and the last thing I take off at night. With a change in eating , and my zip I am down 70 pounds and have kept it off for over a year now. I love FitBit. I do have a question about tracking when biking or using a riding mower, should I remove fitbit while doing these task, the riding mower seems to add up steps, I feel like I’m not really earning ? Any advise?
