Hey everyone! I am home from my trip! I have so much vacation content to share with y’all, and I plan on starting on that tomorrow! I needed to first to a blog post in time for y’all to learn about the upcoming PowHer.fit challenge that starts this weekend!
Below we have included all the details of the PowHer.fit July Challenge for our members. Our May Challenge entries were incredible (see the winners below), we took June to launch our new software system, and now we are ready for another challenge this upcoming month!. Who wouldn’t be willing to be a little “extra” committed towards getting their summer body ready while also having the chance to win some good prizes??? So let’s dive into some Q&A’s about the July PowHer.fit Challenge:
Will the July Challenge cost any money to enter?
There is no additional fee to enter the July Challenge, but you do have to be an active PowHer.fit member from July 1 – July 31. Monthly membership is $49 and you can join at www.PowHer.fit. The website has tons of information if you have questions about the program including About Us, FAQ, Billing and other Blog Posts!
We are asking that all PowHer.fit members who are signing up to participate in the challenge post this image below on any of their social media platforms – instagram (feed or story post), facebook (new feed post or story), or twitter. You may think this is just a marketing scheme for PowHer.fit, but really it’s even more accountability for YOU to stick to the challenge. Whenever I publicly tell someone I’m going to do something, I’m much more likely to stay committed and follow through! I really want everyone who does the PowHer.fit program as well as this challenge to feel their best in their upcoming Summer Body!
What Content Will I Have To Submit? And Where?
We have created a July Challenge Topicwithin our Members Only Online Forum. Within that topic there are 3 threads. One is titled “Submit Your Before Content“, another is “July Challenge Discussion” allowing our members to communicate throughout the challenge, and the last one is “Submit Your After Content“. Only PowHer.fit members will be able to see your uploads to our forum, however if you’re not comfortable posting in the forum then you can email your content to both Ben@PowHer.fit and Randa@PowHer.fit.
Before Content:You will need to take a beginning photo of the front, side and back view on either June 30 or July 1. You will also need to take a video of a 360 degree view (so move in a slow, full circle while being recorded) so that we can verify that your body is not “edited” in any way. In order for you submission to count, there must be a current newspaper taped on the wall behind you with the current date (or hold up your cellphone with the current date.) OnlyPowHer.FitMembers will be able to see this content. No pictures or videos will be posted or shown publicly unless you ask us to. Even the winners identity will remain hidden and anonymous unless she chooses differently.
After Content:You will need to take a beginning photo of the front, side and back view on either July 31 or August 1. (If you take your videos on August 1, your date must state August 1). You will also need to take a video of a 360 degree view (so move in a slow, full circle while being recorded) so that we can verify that your body is not “edited” in any way. In order for you submission to count, there must be a current newspaper taped on the wall behind you with the current date (or hold up your cellphone with the current date.) Only PowHer.FitMembers will be able to see this content. No pictures or videos will be posted or shown publicly unless you ask us to. Even the winners identity will remain hidden and anonymous unless she chooses differently.
As far as the essay goes, you need to turn in 500 worlds or less at the end of the month of July explaining how you feel the July PowHer.Fitchallenge helped you reach your goals. This includes non scale victories, mental clarity, gaining emotional strength and confidence, etc.
What Can I Win? The Grand Prize Winner Will Get to Select One of the Following…
1. A pair of APL tennis shoes(winner decides style and size: up to $250)
3. One Year Free Membership to the PowHer.Fit App! (Over a $500 value!!!)
How will the winner be chosen?
The winner will be chosen by myself (Randa) and the professional strength trainer and nutritionist of the PowHer.FitProgram- Ben Crane of Do What You Can’t. We are not focusing only on one thing such as most weight lost, biggest drop in percent body fat, most inches lost, or the most lean muscle mass gained. We will actually be looking for the best OVERALL winner. The winner will combine multiple benefits of the PowHer.FitPrograms: fat loss, lean muscle mass, inches lost, confidence gained, as well as becoming mentally and physically stronger. Both Ben and Randa will evaluate the before and after pictures and videos as well as the final essay written. Recording your weight and percent body fat at the beginning and the end of the month can also be turned in, but it is not a requirement.
Where Can I Do the Challenge?
Anywhere you want, really! The PowHer.fit app has both gym and home programs so there’s really no excuse as to why you can’t participate. The home program literally shows you how to use household items such as water bottles, milk jugs, and laundry bags to complete your workout. PowHer.fit also has standard, advanced and modified (easier) movements for all exercises within a given workout, so no need to feel that you are “too out of shape” or not experienced enough. Participants can choose from either the Strength 1.0 or Bikini Body Conditioning Programs (Home and/or Gym Options) for this challenge.
How Long Will the Challenge Run?
For the Month of July! July 1-31. You will submit your entry on June 30 or July 1 and your final photos, videos and essay on July 31 or August 1! The winner will be announced on Tuesday August 6.
1. What program should I be doing?
- You can do any of the PowHer.FitPrograms! We currently have four programs: Bikini Body Home and/or Gym, as well as Strength 1.0 Home and/or Gym.
2. Should I be working out differently?
- We encourage all challenge participants not to skip any workouts for the month of July for the best chances of winning. The more consistent you are, the better your results will be.
3. Do I need to change my diet?
- We do suggest updating your nutritional overview (linked here) to update based upon your personal goals for the month of July. We do not want any members going to ANY unhealthy extremes, and do not encourage ANYONE to intake less than 1200 calories a day.
If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask them below so we can answer you! See our May Winner and Unexpected Runner Up – the entries were too good so we ended up choosing 2 winners to receive prizes. The grand prize winner chose a year free with PowHer.fitand the runner up received a $75 gift card to Southern Jewlz Boutique! The winner said, “I can’t wait to see where I am a year from now with my free membership to PowHer.fit!”
Y’all know I am a firm believer in strength training, and I would be so excited for a few of you to join me in July for the PowHer.fit challenge!
