Introducing: The “Better than Yesterday” Challenge

I am thrilled to announce Functional Fitness on the Bluffs’ first ever community challenge! Much of what we are creating on a daily basis at FFOTB is a place where people can earn their “black belt” in fitness. Our students don’t just improve their fitness each day, they are creating a lifestyle of improvement. Luckily for us all, the structure of our training provides good context to improvement because we measure everything.

It's gunna be a MAD HOUSE!

The “Better than Yesterday” Challenge is your chance to own your training. For 6 weeks, you’ll be able to put your money where your mouth is and compete with yourself and others. Not only will you be able to train for a specific event, you’ll be able to see on paper that you are in fact better than you once were. This is about FUN. It is about ACCOUNTABILITY. It is about IMPROVEMENT. And, it is about YOU!

Here how it works:

If you’re in, you’ll put $40 into the pot and complete the challenge workout. This first attempt will be your “Challenge Prelims,” and serve as your baseline time. This Saturday, October 1st at 9:00 AM will be your first opportunity to set your baseline. If you can’t make class this Saturday, we will be doing make ups until Oct. 8th.

For six weeks, every Wednesday and Friday’s class be specifically tailored to training for the Challenge Finals. This means the programming will be geared to improving your baseline time by way of intervals, different workout variations, context, and even strategy. Take a look at the workout:
