Last week our Fit First Responder 25 week challenge kicked off! After a year of coaching and witnessing the last several months or so of last year’s challenge, I started to make a few mental notes I wanted to share.
Each week we’re asking our first responders to consider some significant questions. Like, “Who are you” Are you your job? Are you who your parents say you are? We’re challenging them to define who they are.
We also are encouraging them to take action. To complete weekly readings, short assignments, assigned accountability partners and so on. All of these steps require action on their part.
These tasks are all about mental conditioning or training because we know that a shift in mindset may change attitude which could lead to a different course of action -> different results and hopefully these new results –> positive change in life.
Week 1 -Recap
The video above has some highlights but there’s nothing like experiencing it up close. Lots of returning and new faces determined to be there best and change their lives. Yes, there’s $20,000 up for grabs!
It’s always encouraging to witness people giving their best. Their 100% effort and focus because only they control it. Think about that for a minute. No one else controls those but you.
At the end of 25 weeks there will only be three cash prize winners but I’m expecting something bigger than that! Here’s a small taste of that.
What I Want As a Coach?
- All first responders develop a can do mindset to completely change their attitude, nutrition, overall health beyond the 25 week challenge.
- All first responders to realize that accountability can make all the difference. It’s an absolute must and that in any aspect of their lives, they DON”T HAVE TO DO IT ALONE.
- All first responders to trust the process.
- All first responders to realize there’s no perfect way to start! Simply start! One step a time. One habit at a time. One meal at a time. One day at a time. One week at a time.
- Perfection isn’t required. At any point, if you feel like you messed up or simply don’t like that way things are going. STOP, remind yourself it’s about HOW YOU FINISH!
- FFR is a safe place. You will be challenged, it will be uncomfortable but we’re here to not judge but help you WIN in every aspect of your life.
- All first responders to embrace the big picture. This is your life. Define it. Own your body, mindset, habits and become the person you want to be. For some, that might take 25 weeks for others, longer.
- All first responders to make this challenge a LIFELONG pursuit.
