Fandom and Fitness?
How can Fandom and Fitness got together you ask? They do. I know quite a few gentleman and ladies, that use superheroes as their fitness motivation. I also noticed a lot of fandom related virtual races have popped up as of late. The Winchester’s 67K being one I participated in a few years ago.
The Supernatural cast also recently ran the Seattle Marathon to raise money for charity, with Random Acts.
But I have come across something, that is bringing together thousands of people and doing charity work at the same time. Just recently I discovered the TV show Outlander, one of my best friends has been telling me to watch for the longest time. Finally 3 weeks ago I started to watch and fell in love.
Outlander Fandom for the win!
Then I got an e-mail from Omaze, cause they suddenly knew, that I want to meet Sam Heughan. How? Aside from the internet knowing what I want, I was intrigued to figure out what the My Peak Challenge is.
Google led me to the website where Sam Heughan is the first thing you see. I browed the different tabs and started to really like what I saw. What raised the value for me, is that for the $119, 50% are automatically donated to charity. Another plus is you get a meal plan for the full year and workouts each weak. Since I used to be a certified NASM trainer, I liked this a lot. So I signed up.
I technically signed up for 2019, but as a perk am allowed to browse around the 2018 program. I had already written out my workouts for this week, so I was set there, but the meal plan was what caught my eye.
In my opinion My Peak Challenge is the perfect combination of Fandom and Fitness.
One week in…
I decided to start my hopefully last(ing) fitness journey after Thanksgiving. I usually do grocery shopping on Thursdays, so I only got to eat two days on the plan so far. But if you follow me on Instagram, you have seen some of the foods I get to eat. I love that there is a variety of foods, it is a mixture of macros and calorie counting. Calorie counts are between 1600 and 1900 a day and the macros are 40 carbs, 30 protein and 30. I am still using My Fitness Pal to log my foods.
So in conclusion, I am down 4lb. and if you like to cook the meal plan is easy to follow. The recipes are easy and quick.
I am looking forward to starting with the exercises next week, which I was easily able to adjust to my current non-existent fitness level. My level of excitement to start a program, hasn’t been this high in a very long time.
Thank you, Sam and the My Peak Challenge team.
