10 Monthly Fitness Challenge Ideas

I hope everyone had a good weekend! I’m trying to get ahead on some of my blogging these next few weeks in an attempt to prepare for my upcoming trip to Iceland, hopeful busier schedule (fingers crossed to be working again soon!), and let’s get real, just up my blogging game again. I’m playing around with a few ideas right now but I’m going to keep that quiet for the time being as I try to get the puzzle pieces together. Don’t you love a little anticipation? 😉

Anyway, one of the things I’ve been doing for the last few months is setting a daily fitness challenge. I’ve done push-ups, burpees, and planks. While I try to work out more days than not each week, even on my rest days, I would try to take a minute to get my daily challenge done. It was just enough to get my heart rate up.

I have been enjoying this so much that I plan to continue my daily fitness challenge. As I was brainstorming what I wanted my next few months of challenges to be, I thought it could be fun to share it and maybe it’ll help inspire each of you to try something new!

  1. Push-ups
  2. Burpees
  3. Plank hold
  4. Squats
  5. Sit-ups/Crunches
  6. Jump rope
  7. Wall Sit
  8. Steps
  9. Minutes of stretching
  10. A combination of movements

While I know so many of us have Apple Watches, FitBits, Garmins, or some other step tracking device, how often do you actually hold yourself to your step goal? I may WANT to hit mine, but I know that it’s not uncommon for me to miss it by a few, several, or even many. Including it on this list is more about holding yourself accountable to that step goal every single day.

I will also add that for my past challenges, if I had to miss a day for whatever reason (or just plain forgot to do the exercise), I would make up for it. I keep a tracker in my planner and check it off every day that I complete it.

This is not an exhaustive list by ANY means but just a few ideas to get your wheels turning.

Have you ever tried a daily fitness challenge? What did you choose to do? Or what would you choose first if you started?

  1. I am one of those “structure needed” people — and this sounds perfect for days I can’t get to the gym. I’ve tried the 7 minute workout and various combinations — so I’ll put this on my list. Thank you for the inspiration!

  2. I haven’t tried a daily fitness challenge but sometimes I think I should! I’m one of those who is guilty of wearing a Fitbit tracker and really hitting my step goals very often at all. I need to start holding myself accountable.

    1. It’s possible last night I was taking laps around my apartment while brushing my teeth because I was so close to my goal and couldn’t let myself rest when I was only 500 steps away! LOL

  3. Blogging and being fit. This is awesome. Setting a goal can really help you achieve anything . It is your motivation. You are getting your life together which is amazing 😀 Keep it up!

    1. I am so happy to hear you’re getting your step goal! It’s crazy how much I realize I don’t move during the day when I end up lost in work mode!
