What is the Ignite55 Challenge?

Our new style Ignite55 Challenge, is a 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 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.

Your coach may expect you to train hard and eat healthy, but nothing is expected from you for the Challenge.

Free Coaching

When you sign up to Ignite55, you get assigned a coach from the Maxx Trainers.  Your coach is there to answer any questions you may have, provide you with motivation, advice and tips on living healthy, as well as some accountability to help keep you on track.
