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.

Exercise Form Rules
Sumo or conventional stances are allowed. Deadeners are not allowed as it will shorten the ROM. The knees need to be straight and the hips must be forward in order for each rep to count.
