What is the Ignite55 Lifestyle Challenge?
Our Ignite55 Lifestyle Challenge, is all about challenging yourself to improve different areas of your lifestyle, that you feel, there is room for change.
Your Set Your Own Challenge?
We all live very different lifestyles. Some areas of our lifestyle are good and healthy, and other areas are unhealthy.
Only You know the areas You need to improve. And that’s why, each person on Ignite55, has to set their own challenges for the 8 weeks, and then get to work achieving them.
Challenges can be anything from completing a certain number of workouts per week, walking a certain number of steps per day, cutting down or cutting out unhealthy foods or habits in your lifestyle, drinking more water or getting more sleep. It’s totally up to you. Don’t worry, we’ll give you loads of help when it comes to creating your own challenges.
The Ignite55 Wristband
As a reward for successfully completing Your Ignite55 Lifestyle Challenges, you’ll earn yourself one of our coveted ‘Black Wristbands’, as a token for your achievements, and a constant reminder of the determination and grit that you hold inside.
