Change the way you live for 8 weeks(and you just might change your whole life)

Next Challenge Begins September 16, 2017

How it Works

Each day, you'll get points for completing each of the 7 Daily Habits.

The Habits work together to create an effect in your life that’s hard to overstate — after a few weeks, you’ll feel rested, energetic, present, strong, healthy (and perhaps even happier).

Even better, you’ll have a base knowledge about health and wellness that will last long after the Challenge ends, giving you the tools you need to build a healthier lifestyle for years to come.

Learn About the Habits

You can play the challenge by yourself or on a team with friends, family and co-workers and you’ll climb the scoreboard as you make progress.

Entering your score is super simple —

The Best Part—
We Don’t expect you to be perfect.

While the Whole Life Challenge provides rules and guidelines for best results, we still want you to experience life. This means you’ll sometimes give up a point or two doing the things you love — and that’s okay. Read the Philosophy of Imperfection.

The 3 Best Core Exercises: The Most Efficient, Effective, and Easily Modified

By | Exercise and Workouts

Most often when you see “ab-slimming exercises” advertised, the claim is that the moves will slim the stomach by targeting the muscles there: your abs. But contrary to what many people believe, developing strong abs will not slim your stomach. In other words, “ab-slimming exercises” are not possible. What a strong core will do, though — no matter your current size or fitness level — is strengthen your back, improve your balance, better your posture, assist in avoiding injury, and…

“Born to Run” Iskiate Chia Energy Drink

By | Nutrition, Cooking, and Recipes

I found out about iskiate in Born to Run, Christopher McDougall’s epic book about the Tarahumara tribe of Mexico (a.k.a. “the running people”). Iskiate (IS-kee-ah-tay), also known as chia fresca, is a water-based chia drink that supposedly confers huge amounts of energy and endurance on the drinker, bolstered by the superfood status of chia, a squeeze of lime, and a hit of agave. Of course, I had to build my own (sans the agave), as I’ve been spending much of…

In your average work day, do any of these scenarios sound familiar? Fidgeting in your office chair to find a comfortable position. Propping something behind your low back to get relief. Rubbing your neck and shoulders to ease tension, while slumping over your desk. Feeling like you have a white-hot poker stabbing you in the shoulder blade. Feeling like it’s hard to stand up straight for a few minutes after getting up from your desk. All of these symptoms are…

5 Ways to Make Sure Your Gym Is Not Scamming You

Perhaps the only places you go with regularity that are charged with the sole purpose of addressing your well being are your church and the gym. In theory, a church is a temple of wellness offering community-based unity in thought and faith. And theoretically, a gym is a wellness temple of a different sorts — tasked with promoting a culture of holistic health and fitness. Yet another place you go to address your health with less frequency is the doctor….

The Best Pushing Exercises for Barbell, Kettlebell, and Bodyweight Training

By | Exercise and Workouts

Training is simple. We make it far more complex than it really needs to be. Lift more weight — either by performing a higher volume (sets x reps) or by increasing intensity (lifting a heavier weight) — and you’ll improve. However, there are some exercises that should be considered your main courses and others that don’t even rate a mention on the kids’ menu. Much of how training is viewed today still stems from years of bodybuilding-dominated fitness media. Bodybuilders…
