14 Day May Challenge

Screen Shot 2014-05-17 at 2.38.56 PM

Are any of you Folksters up for a 14 Day May Challenge? Getting in 10,000 steps a day can be a challenge – we know, however, what a difference it can make in your life! The challenge of running 3 times of week will help you get to the 10,000 steps quicker on those days (and the planking will make you stronger and give you a sexier stomach)! We hope this makes a difference by adding this little challenge to your Folk Wellness Co. Bootcamp schedule! The challenge rules are simple: 

  • Starts May 18th
  • Ends May 31st
  • Let us know how you did on June 1st 
  • #14DayMayChallenge

Oh and what is your favorite pedometer or steps counter?!

Love Fest 2014

loveOur LOVE Fest begins  January 14th and runs until February 13th. It is a 31 day running/walking challenge.  We ask that you submit your results to us on February 14th – LOVE day! 

It’s only 5 weeks long and your goal is to aim for 50 miles over the 31 days. That is an average of a little over a 1.5 miles per day. You can lump these miles up however you choose – run 3 one day and take a day off; run 1.6 every day; or run 6 miles one day and take the weekend off.

Submit your result & keep us updated on your progress via instagram, facebook or email: #LOVEfest @folkwellness

We would also LOVE to see who can beat our goal of 50 miles! 

The point of our LOVE fest is that studies show by “journaling” and “seeing” results, good habits tend to stick longer and accountability increases. We LOVE you guys so much that we want daily exercise and healthy habits to become a something you LOVE to do vs. have to do. Looking forward to this #LOVEfest for we LOVE each and every one of you! Have fun!

Countdown To Christmas

winterHoliday5
Have you committed to Folk’s #CountdownToChristmas Challenge?

If so, we would love to hear about the goal, progress and reward you have chosen.  If you are a private person….email us your goals and such and we will be your holiday accountability partner.  Otherwise, post away on our facebook  & instagram pages and let us know with a @folkwellness & #CountdownToChristmas! We can all help each other!! This is the time of year when we really need to stay strong and challenge ourselves… let’s go for it! 

Make these last few weeks of 2013 really count in whatever way you think is most important for YOU:

  1. Choose a specific, realistic goal that you can achieve by December 31st.
  2. Post or email us weekly updates (you choose the day) about your progress (optional).
  3. Decide on a gift (YOUR REWARD) that you’ll give yourself when you meet your goal.

Here are some #CountdownToChristmas goals that our clients have set:

  1. My goal is to eat 1400-1500 calories a day, tracking everything on LoseIt (or in my journal).
  2. On days when I have special holiday events, make sure to make up the difference in calories by putting in extra workout time.
  3. I’m committing to go for a Folk Wellness Bootcamp workout at least 2 times/week!
  4. I’m posting every Friday.
  5. I will drink 8 glasses of H2O per day (I struggle with this when it’s cold).

Sample client reward: 

  1. My gift is going to be a new pair of snazy sneakers.
  2. I will finally buy myself that new purse I’ve been checkin out! 
  3. I will pamper myself with a spa day (including the longest masage they offer)!
