Oops, here I go again with a new idea!! As many of you might already know, I got the crazy (KRAZY) idea to pair up the brand new BodyRock Fat Burn Challenge with Lisa’s original 30 Day Real Time Challenge (RTC). The thought came to me recently while I was revisiting one of the days of RTC – my crazy self thought, “Hey, this challenge is 30 days and the new challenge is 30 days, why not pair them up?!” Call it coincidence, call it crazy, I decided to give it a whirl – what could it hurt?! Wait…..don’t answer that question! LOL
My game plan is to tackle the Fat Burn Day first, followed by the corresponding RTC Day. Now, if you have completed the RTC, you will know that some of the days are quite long – and to add even another 12 minutes on to that seems impossible, so my approach to this challenge is essentially on a day by day basis. Some days I might do the Fat Burn 2x through and eliminate the cardio rounds of the RTC altogether, some days I might start with Fat Burn and do cardio every other round of RTC, the possibilities could go on and on!!
That being said, I will be posting a day in advance and sharing what I am doing so you can see my plan of attack for the upcoming day! This will give you the option to follow my lead, or switch things up to suit your needs!! I will also have links to the corresponding workouts for each day, as well as a breakdown below for modifications that I made to the original workout(s). As always, I will share my post workout pics on Facebook – drenched in liquid awesome no doubt!
DAY 15 : Fat Burn Challenge Day 15 + Real Time Challenge Day 15
Can you all believe we are at the HALFWAY point of this BEAST of a challenge?! That is amazing!!
As most of you know, I was at GRIT Training this past weekend. GRIT is a Les Mills program that I coach at the gym and in order to become an official GRIT Trainer, I had to go through this two day course. GRIT is a 30 minute HIIT workout designed to drive your inner athlete to become fitter, faster. If your gym has GRIT, I strongly encourage you to take a class.

It was a long weekend of physically, training our technique which included a full workout, several mock workouts, and fine tuning of form. It was also a training of mental focus which included fine tuning our music cues, information and exercise science behind the workouts, and in depth training regarding the layers of coaching. I learned so much and am grateful for the opportunity to participate and deliver such a great program!
That being said…I am TIRED and my body is SORE! I am taking a REST DAY today to recover and let my muscles repair themselves from an intense week of training. I must say that everyone is ROCKING the #BeastetteChallenge and I will arrange my week going forward so I am able to catch up with everyone – even it involves modifying some of the workouts.
I love Day 15 of the Real Time and I think my game plan is to use it for my HIIT class tomorrow night – sounds good right?! Happy Monday everyone – keep up all of the incredible efforts!!! xoxo
