Here is the challenge?..

It starts on November 19th with 2 burpees.  November 20th 4 burpees and continues on adding 2 every day until Jan. 7th which will be 100 burpees!!!

The point of the challenge is to keep you engaged and doing something physical no matter where you travel or what you do.  

Here’s the kicker?.. if you miss a day, you must make up the day you missed and that days, so it will behoove you to not fall behind. When you start getting further into the challenge you don’t have to do all your burpees at once. You can spread them throughout the day.

We are doing a contest for you as well.  Take a funny picture or make a video of you doing burpees in a cool place.  

Post it to our Facebook event here!  and then tag CrossFit Hard's page by doing @crossfithard.  At the end of the challenge we will do something special for the best picture or video. 

Stay engaged.  Have fun.  Do some burpees, and don’t let your fitness fall behind this holiday season!
