In getting back to a more sweat related blog post, I thought I would share what’s been motivating me lately on the workout front.
The Army gym is running a contest for anyone who can spin, zumba, step and yoga “Across America” by April.
So basically I have until April to complete 37 workout classes at the gym to get a prize pack [which I have no idea what it contains, but the sheer excitement of the prize pack obviously has me sweating it up to find out!]
They calculated that there are 2,220 miles between Fort Benning and Los Angeles, and by taking 37 fitness classes we should have covered that mileage.
I have no real motivation to get toward Los Angeles so I thought I would google the distance between my parent’s address in Boise Idaho and my own address here in Georgia.
Funny, it came out to 2,210 miles.
So now my motivation is to spin, zumba, step and yoga across America…but to get to Boise, Idaho [in my mind].
Whatever the motivation is—I’m actually pretty proud of myself for keeping to it.
I have already completed 7 classes this year which includes 3 yoga, 2 zumba, and 2 spin classes. And there will be another yoga & spin added today.
I’ll be in Idaho in no time!
Would a contests/game like this motivate you? I didn’t think I would stick with it even this long, but having the visual of trying to get back to Idaho has actually helped a lot. Now I’m in it–to win it!
