This week’s challenge is brought to you by Core Fusion, and we have our first weekly prize!
Core Fusion is a series of workout classes that take the fundamentals of Lotte Berk and pilates to the next level for a totally unique workout experience. It’s taught at Exhale Spa locations throughout the country, but for those of us who don’t live in big cities, Core Fusion DVDs are available. Rachel has written about them extensively on Shedding It, because after losing major inches and noticing a huge difference in her body during her one-month commitment, she’s obsessed. There are several DVDs, but the people at Core Fusion were cool enough to donate two DVDs to us: Thighs and Glutes and Pure Abs and Arms.
Outside the Box Challenge Week #2: The Core Fusion Shock Your Body Test. Last week, you got your hands dirty. This week, it’s time to get sweaty! For this challenge, you have to try a new workout: it can be a new machine at the gym (like the poor, neglected rowing machine), a new DVD, a class you’ve never tried before, or just a new and different way to do cardio or strength training. To make sure you really shock your body, it should be something you haven’t done for the past three months!
Everyone who submits an entry to this week’s challenge (regardless of whether you entered last week) is eligible to win one of the DVDs. We’ll pick the winners at random from all the eligible entries this week!
You have until 11:59 PM PST on Sunday, March 14 to submit your entry! Get to it!
Outside the Box Challenge Week #1: The Frontier Girl Test.
This week, we’re sending you into the kitchen to make something from scratch that you’d normally buy. Examples: hummus, bread, tortillas, ketchup, salsa, pesto.
Be honest with yourself — if you always make your own tomato sauce, don’t use that for the challenge. Pick something new!
You have until Sunday March 7 at 11:59 PST to update this blog with a little recap of your Scratch Test experience.
