Just for a little extra motivation in the gym, I’ve joined Maxine’s Challenge. Having previously participated, I know the benefits of their strength training programs, and look forward to another 12 weeks of Maxine’s. This 12 week challenge has been around for five years now and I have watched it’s popularity and presence on social media steadily grow over the years.
The challenge is based on nutrition and exercise plans but it is not solely focused on weight loss. The aim is to become stronger and fitter by the end of the 12 weeks, and most participants do also wish to lose weight. Having seen some of the end results, I can confidently say that the nutrition program really does work, being based simply on healthy nutritious food.
From the website:
“Maxine’s Challenge is a 12 week on-line body transformation program that has helped thousands of people from around the country get in the best shape of their lives. If you’ve tried numerous ways to lose weight and get in shape without success – then Maxine’s Challenge is exactly what you need to get results”.
The training program consists of three blocks of 4 weeks. Each block is based around solid full body weight training sessions plus regular cardio sessions.
Those who are regular readers would know that I have a fabulous fully equipped home gym. I have all the equipment I need – both weights and cardio – for the challenge.
Challengers must follow an exact training program but can make their own choice for cardio. My plan is to use a mixture of outdoor cycling, walking, hiking, hill intervals, boxing and RPM and HIIT sessions in the gym.
Nutrition programs are also a part of this program. I don’t expect to lose weight, however I do expect to reach my goal of becoming fitter and stronger by the end of 12 weeks.
This program will also combine well with my 150 Walks in Victoria goal, that is my main focus for 2018. The increased intensity of strength training will make my body stronger, which will be a great benefit when tackling some of the tougher hikes.
My goal for Maxine’s Challenge is to do every exercise session – both gym and cardio. My transformation will be to become a person who is completely consistent and who is her word
