Courtney’s Summer Challenge Kicks Off 10 Weeks of Fitness and Fun

Are you ready to be challenged to reshape yourself mentally and physically? We’ve tasked our Biggest Loser correspondent Courtney Crozier with pushing you guys outside of your comfort zones once again with this year’s Courtney’s Summer Challenge!

It’s a ten-week challenge that starts right now and will help you think differently about food, fitness, and your self.

Each week Courtney will present a new challenge and you’ll have seven days to meet that goal. You’ll find yourself on your feet, in front of the mirror, and in the kitchen, but either way, we promise it will be a little bit fun and a little bit trying. We also promise that you CAN do it!

Courtney’s Summer Challenge is sponsored by Truvia® natural sweetener, who will be sharing prizes and recipes throughout.

Challenge Prizes

  • One weekly winner will be drawn from the participants for a 40-count box of Truvia, a container of Truvia Spoonable, DIR T-Shirt, measuring cup, and set of recipe cards.
  • One grand prize winner, at the very end, will receive a Truvia® natural sweetener gift pack including a variety of Truvia products, Marisa Churchill’s Sweet and Skinny cookbook, more kitchen essentials, and plenty of goodies from DietsInReview.

Start the Challenge

So, who’s with us? If you did Courtney’s Summer Challenge last year then you’ve got no excuse not to do it this year! If you’re new to the challenge, then prepare to have fun and get fit!

I hate pushups. My coach knows it. Today was Crossfit Tuesday at the gym. By the end of 6 rounds of work out we had done 189 pushups! (and squats too!) It was hard but I did them!

I hate push ups, but I'll feel good at the end of the week, knowing that I accomplished something.

I am starting my push up challenge today! My son Payton is going to do them with me! Helps because he wants me to succeed at losing weight as much as I do!

What a great thing to do. So glad that I can do a modification of a push-up. I would have not have thought that unless I listened to the video. With my bad knees I know I can do this now! Awesome!!!

These are my least favorite =) but I'll do them! Another way is with your forarm instead of your hands. I have a wrist injury so those are better for me!
For the more intense people do the pushup with your feet elevated off the ground.
