In the super long 2 year history of The Fit RV, I’m pretty sure this is one of the coolest most awesomest things we’ve done. James and I will be hosting our 1st ever RV fitness competition, Biggest Loser-style! And YOU, dear friends, get to follow along for the ride.
A while back, we were contacted by the folks at The Hitch House Motorhome Specialists, a very large and highly popular RV dealership located in Ontario. They wanted to start an employee fitness challenge, and invited us to join in the fun. Would we think about being involved, they asked? Uh, think about it? No thinking necessary; because HECK YA! We were so jazzed for the chance to make a change in the lives of these special people working in the RV industry. So, the competition ideas started flowing, and now here we are, smack dab in the middle of week 1 festivities.
How It Works:
After initial weigh-ins and weight loss goal setting, each contestant was placed on a team: Team Stef or Team James. James and I are doing all the fitness coaching for our respective teams, helping them set up exercise plans, doing nutrition counseling, and giving any specific advice they might need to reach their goals. Teams will face weekly fitness challenges that we give them, and will earn team points for coming out on top. For week 1, contestants were challenged with two things: squats and steps. Everyone is logging the number of squats they do each day, and also the number of steps they take each day. At the end of the week, teams will combine their scores and the team with the most squats gets a point, and the team with the most steps gets a point.
On top of the individual weekly challenges, there will be some upcoming team challenges, too! You’ll see these hearty Canadians getting childish, with snow tubing competitions and laser tag, as just a few sneak peeks!
This video shows how the competition is going now that we’ve officially kicked off and are in week 1 of the 12 week challenge. As you’ll see in the video, this is a highly competitive (and silly) group! They’ve embraced their fitness challenges with gusto, and are all in it to win it! We couldn’t be more pleased with how hard they’re working and how determined they are to create change in their lives.
