I've been putting together these Monthly Fitness Challenges for over a year now. The idea behind the monthly fitness challenge started because I needed a way to be held accountable for strength training exercises on a daily basis (not just telling myself "ok Self, today we do 100 sit-ups"). So I made up a calendar with a list of exercises I had to complete daily... and the first Monthly Fitness Challenge was born! Before long, the idea had grown, was shared on Facebook and Pinterest, more people joined the challenges, and now we were all getting the the challenge and push we need to get fit together!
The great part about the monthly fitness challenges is that they are made up of strength training and core conditioning exercises... without any equipment! You can use you own body weight, in the comfort of your home! If the workout is too easy, you can add more reps or do a harder variation of the exercises. If the workout is too hard, you can decrease the reps or do easier, modified versions of the exercises. You are in charge of your workout... and you can make it your own!
The February Fitness Challenge only consists of TWO exercises! But squats and push-ups are great exercises to tone up those gluts, midsections, strengthen your core, arms, and legs, and burn some calories. Last year, there was a squat challenge in January and a push-up challenge in February... so I decided to combine them this year! The results of the February challenge were pretty awesome last year.

But DON'T FORGET THE CARDIO!!
So who's with us?! Since the exercises are standard and simple, there should be no excuses! Let's get fit together! #FitFeb
