- Workout: Olympic Athlete Personal Challenge by Brit
- Duration: 30-45 minutes
- Calories Burned: 400-600
- Brit’s Commentary: I was feeling so inspired by the Olympics this week that I designed a workout to challenge my own “Olympic worthiness.” I’m no where near an “Olympic athlete” but sometimes it’s good to feel my own SPEED, ENDURANCE, STRENGTH and GRIT! This workout was a nice change up to my usual routine and kept me in the Olympic spirit. It also allowed me to capitalize on all of the positive energy that the Olympics brings every 4 years! That said, try the challenge for yourself and go for the GOLD 🙂
*Be sure to warm up for 5-10 minutes before you start the sprints and stretch for 5-15 minutes after you complete the workout.
Example: Inch Worm Exercise
Once again, NIKE has hit the nail on the head. As you guys know, I absolutely love the Summer Olympics. Thus, watching the games on TV this past week has been absolute inspirational paradise! The idea that someone trains for 4 whole years to master 1 moment is simply amazing. It’s like Eminem said, “You only get one shot.” Truth is that the experience of training, performing and being great isn’t only for Olympic athletes – it for ALL OF US! The raw endurance and perseverance that Olympic athletes exhibit very much parallels how we can handle challenges in our daily lives. Each day we have the opportunity to find our greatness. The opportunity to push ourselves. To shock ourselves and do something we never thought we were capable of doing. To set higher goals. To explore our true passions. To recognize and appreciate our talents and gifts. To perfect our skills. To strengthen our mental grit. And ultimately, to be GREAT.
I recently saw this NIKE commercial during Olympic games the that so perfectly conveys this message. Please take a minute, watch and ask yourself, “What is my greatness?” GET IT. GRIT. GREATNESS.
