STRONG Community Challenge


WELCOME TO STRONG

Six weeks. Friends, families and teammates. For 20 minutes a day, five days a week, we'll experiment with challenges and rhythms designed to open us up to a purpose driven life that is STRONG. Take the Challenge, have some fun, and discover what it means to be STRONG!

ACCOUNTABILITY

Having a prominent place in the home to post your goals to see every day and track your progress will be key in these first days. Having an accountability buddy (an AccountabiliBuddy) or partner in the challenge will provide the motivation you need within your existing network.
Track your progress with the Strong Challenge Tracking Sheet

STRONG CHALLENGE 

WEEK 6: BALANCE

Congratulations! You have made it to the final week!
Now, equip your STRONG arsenal (Achieve, Play, Rest, Connect, Serve) with the final secret weapon, Balance, to be complete.

The STRONG Challenge may be over but the habits will remain. We encourage you to remain a part of the STRONG Challenge Community on Facebook and to grow your accountability network. Stay tuned for the next challenge coming soon!

Remember, the STRONG Challenge is about making a transformation over six weeks. During the first week, we will focus on the foundation of a transformation through goal setting. To start, you will need to select something to do for 20 minutes, 5 times during the week.

TAKING THIS STEP IS A DECLARATION AGAINST BOREDOM AND GLOOM.
