This month while developing the calendar, we decided to take requests and feedback from our Monthly Fit Challenge participants, and we developed the August Summer Variety Act – meaning, we have a LOT of VARIETY in the August Challenge calendar! The great thing about variety is – you’ll never be bored!
We have a little of everything this month: upper body with shoulders, arms and chest; abs and core stability, legs and butt, as well as back!
We ALSO have an ALTERNATIVE DAILY OPTION! If there are days when you just don’t want to do the strength exercises, we have also provided an option for a daily cardio OR daily plyometric challenge! So take your pick! Choose strengthening everyday, or choose another – or be strategic and mix it up! It’s up to you! But always check in on the Facebook Group Page when you are done for the day – STAY ACCOUNTABLE, and HELP SUPPORT AND KEEP OTHER GROUPS MEMBERS ACCOUNTABLE TOO!
And remember – while it appears to be physical, most of any challenge (in life) is a mental exercise! The toughest of the tough find new ways to ward off distractions (like the voice in our head telling us to quit). Whether it’s listening to music, breathing, counting floor boards or something else – the biggest challenge of all is always finding ways to BE BIGGER THAN THE EVIL VOICE TELLING YOU TO QUIT!
Take a look at some of the SUCCESS STORIES from other great people who have participated in The Monthly Fit Challenge!
A GREAT SUPPORT TEAM: If you want to join us and haven’t yet, please ask to join the Facebook Challenge Group HERE. This is where you will get the MOST out of your experience! The Facebook group is a GREAT way to get fantastic support from people as you complete your daily exercise set. The group holds each person accountable, and includes people from all over the world, every age group, background and fitness level! And remember, it’s not a competition with anyone except for your own self!
Below is the AUGUST Calendar. Also, let our friend Jumping Jack show you HOW TO DO the August exercises!

PLEASE NOTE: Take a careful look at the calendar. Note that when an exercise says ‘e’ next to it, it means to say we are doing that exercise on EACH SIDE. Also note that some of the exercises are done for time, and some are to a specific count.
