Last week, I told you guys that we would be doing various 6 week challenges throughout the year to help us reach our fitness goals or maintain our healthy lifestyle. These mini challenges will make it easier to stay on track by providing a deadline (each 6 weeks) to work toward.

This post marks the start of the LOVE YOUR EVERYTHING: 6 week challenge and below you will find the workouts for week one. This challenge will end the week of Valentine’s day so it’ll be the perfect way to lose those extra pounds and sculpt your body just in time for cupid.

I know that you already have the Keep it Moving Fitness Calendar to stick to but please note that those are just workout suggestions and are composed of random workouts that we’ve previously done in this community, the workouts during this LOVE YOUR EVERYTHING are a bit more organized and strategic.

I would recommend following the 6 week schedule as best as you can and use the Calendar or other workouts in this community as an alternative if you, for some reason, can’t complete a workout suggested below. As always, the most important thing is to  KEEP IT MOVING.

I am going to be giving away tons of Prizes during the 6 weeks but in order be qualified Make sure you chime in via the comment section below, FACEBOOK, twitter, and Instagram

We will use the following # HASHTAGS on Social Media Sites.
