Challenge LifeOur Challenge Community
Our mission is to inspire, engage and motivate our Challenge Community to enhance their lives.
We use a simple and effective concept of teams, points and challenges.
Our members score points for themselves and their teams by taking on the challenges we set.
There are five teams you can join but as it’s all for fun, we recommend joining the team that needs the most help!
Join a team, gain a purpose, encourage your team to push their limits and they will do the same.

What is it - This month we’d love you to TANC. We really really would. So, our challenge to our lovely Challenge Lifers is ‘Can you Try A New Class’ once a week, every week for April!?
The classes are fantastic and there’s loads of them! About 25 a week! Most of us have our routine where we do the same class(es), with the same instructors and we love them - great! However, for April, we want you to try something different.
So, if you’re a regular at Alan’s Full Force Fitness at 7am Tuesday’s and Thursdays, why not mix it up a bit and enjoy Jo’s gorgeous dulcet tones for the excellent ‘Body Fire Up’ on a Wednesday, or Brilliant Brandon’s ‘Full Body Blast’ on a Friday! (Come on, you can do it!)
I decided to mix it up a bit last week and gave Nasty Nic’s ‘Abs & Core’ a go and it was brilliant. I really really enjoyed it and I only did it because I missed out on Alan’s FFF in the morning – this got me thinking, and hence TANC was born. In April I’m going to make an effort to do as many as I can and I’m looking forward to trying out Lovely Lydia’s ‘Beat Fit’ and Fantastic Fred’s ‘Brand New Fitness’. Also, I’ve never done a spinning class, so I’m definitely going to give that a …spin (apologies) with Alan. Get out some aggression on a Thursday night with some of Laura’s excellent motivational skills with the new ‘Box & Burn’. And talking of new classes, give Smiling Sarah’s ‘Flex & Flow’ class a whirl on a Monday after work. And if you try loads and are feeling a bit achy, then you best get yourself along to Thomas’ Terrific Yoga. I’m definitely going to give this a go! There’s also so many more classes to try; such as Jo’s Fit to the Core (I learnt a load from this and it really helped with my technique/breathing), Nick’s popular (and rightly so) Female Conditioning or if you’ve got kids or a partner you want to get off the settee, then we even do an AbFab Family Fun session at 4pm on a Tuesday.
And what better way to finish the week with Steve’s Quiz on Sunday. If you haven’t given it a go yet, then it’s a must. Loads of effort and time go into preparing some fun, quirky and whacky questions whilst zero time appears to be allocated with any sort of points scoring system with the Quiz Master asking the contestants ‘who thinks they’ve won!’ Love it!
So get TANCing, try a new class and a new instructor. You just might find yourself a new favourite!!
