Take Back 2020 2.0


We launched the original version of this month-long adventure in April 2020. Our first wave of Take Back 2020 participants formed an incredible virtual community, showering each other with encouragement, accountability, and support in a time of social distancing and uncertainty. Our Take Back 2.0 centers around this community togetherness with the addition of two virtual happy hours, weekly bonus challenges, weekly accountability newsletters, and more!

Can’t get my regular training in. Don’t have a goal race on the calendar anymore. Miss my running buddies. Can’t remember what day of the week it is. Resorted to eating hot dogs and cereal because I’m tired of cooking. Don’t know what to do with these restless legs/arms/brain cells. Sound familiar??

Let’s Take Back 2020!

Just because life has been completely upended lately doesn’t mean we should give up all hope. We will get through this and life as we knew it (ok, maybe with a few changes) will return, but in the meantime, let’s do something to take back control of our lives and our training! You know, that whole thing about life giving you lemons…

So the Take Back 2020 Challenge is a 30 day personal challenge to stretch you physically, mentally, and socially. In the end, these activities will give you some control over your daily well-being, keep you on track for your long-term goals, and hopefully teach you something new! We encourage you to explore each category of the Challenge: Breathe, Empower, Adapt, Strengthen, Transform.

Participants will receive a Bingo card when they register that has workouts and other challenges from the five categories. Each activity has multiple options, so you can tailor each challenge to your ability level! Once you get a bingo you will receive the awesome puzzle slider medal (see below) and be entered into our raffles. But the fun continues from there – the more challenges you complete after your bingo, the more entries you earn into the raffle at the end of the month! Starting on April 15th through the end of May, we are going to be working with you to Take Back 2020. Throughout the, month we will have guest partners providing videos and other content to help you with some of the activities. We will also keep each other motivated and on track on our Facebook page!
