Want to Challenge Yourself This Summer?

Wondering how you’re going to stay accountable to yourself over the temptations of summer? We have a plan!

Instead of a traditional HealthCrush Challenge, we will be doing a virtual challenge for the summer. We will have a Facebook group and offer weigh-ins to help keep you on track throughout the summer months.

Join our Facebook group to gain group support and we will post articles, tips, and more at-home workouts so you can have options when you’re traveling.

Weigh-ins will be available weekly (or on whatever schedule you prefer), for $5 per weigh-in. Their is no additional cost for the Challenge for current members. If you continue a membership for the summer, you will automatically be put into the Facebook group, and it’s your choice how often you want to weigh in.

If you’re new to FitCrush and the HealthCrush program, email info@fitcrushstudio.com to set up a nutrition consultation for $49 and join our challenge!
