Is this challenge open to anyone? Yes! This challenge is open to all men and women of all fitness levels (just starting out to elite!). If there are exercises that you are unable to do, modifications can be made for any of them. You will have full access to Coach Dawn via the closed FaceBook group to ask any questions you may have. It is recommended that you consult a healthcare professional before undertaking any kind of fitness or nutrition program.

What equipment will be required? We recommend having a light, medium and heavy pair of dumbbells (5lb, 10lb, 15lb for women; 15lb; 25lb; 40lb for men), exercise ball, bench, pull-up bar (over the door or stand alone), resistance bands, medicine ball, a form of cardio (treadmill, bike, rower, elliptical, jump rope). For more advanced a squat rack with barbell and plates and heavier dumbbells. You can also check out my list of gym equipment favorites along with snacks and supplements on my Amazon site under the Shop - Must Have Items tab.

What will the workouts be like? The workouts will be a 3-phase structure aimed at burning fat, building lean muscle and increasing your overall endurance and flexibility. You can expect to do a hybrid of weight lifting, HIIT, plyo, cardio, yoga and stretching, 5 to 6 times a week. Workouts will all be around 30 - 45 min. with the option to increase the length of your workout by 30 min. with supplemental exercises. If you need any assistance with changing up your exercises/workouts due to time availability, inability due to injury, etc. or lack of equipment, Coach Dawn will assist you with how to properly make the necessary changes.

Do I need to have a partner for this challenge? No! You can choose to do the solo option, however it's encouraged to do this challenge with a partner for that added accountability, motivation and support. For the team version you do not have to perform all the workouts with your partner at all times, but again, it is recommended for that extra dose of fun! There will be different programs for solo vs. team.
