As many of you know, Fuse Fitness Coaching has a supplement of the week, every week (and if you didn’t know, now you do!). Well, for the past few weeks we have highlighted the Advocare 24-day challenge. I think it often gets overlooked because ‘challenge’ typically implies a contest, a competition, a prize to be won. And unlike our team transformation challenge, none of the above applies to the 24-day challenge. If you’re overly competitive like me, you think “so why do it then?” What makes it a challenge? The challenge is to see if you can stick with it for 24 days, to stay committed even when your confidence or willpower waivers. You are competing with yourself. The prize? There could be several. Maybe you wind up just feeling better. Maybe you drop a significant amount of body fat. Maybe you find out just how much your body is capable of. I asked one of our clients (who has become a good friend of mine and fellow bikini competitor in training), to share her experience with all of you, as she experienced all of the above….and hasn’t stopped talking about it since!
“Hi my name is Colleen Ogren, and I want to share my experience with the 24 day Advocare challenge. I started working out at Fuse Fitness Coaching a little over a year ago. The very first challenge I did was the Advocare 24 day challenge. At first I was nervous I wouldn’t be able to commit to it, but I stuck with it the whole time. During this challenge everything is laid out for you. You have your meal plan, workout plan that the Fuse small group classes are perfect for, and of course you have your Advocare supplements. The very first week I dropped 6% body fat! Crazy, right? I was in shock too! After just a week I felt so amazing! Full of energy and just altogether good! At the end of the challenge I lost total 15% body fat and 7 pounds. I went down 2 pant sizes as well. Finally! After 2 years of letting myself go (due to having a hysterectomy at age 31 and going through menopause), I felt like myself again. I have always been fit my whole life and after having that major life-changing operation, I lost myself and depression hit me hard. Seeing those results at the end made me push even harder, and I continue to stay healthy. I even decided to take my fitness journey further and compete in a fitness competition in May. The 24 day challenge is an amazing program suitable for anyone. The coaches at Fuse Fitness Coaching help you the whole way, and the support from my Fuse family makes you not want to give up. So if you want a boost to start your fitness journey I highly recommend this program. I am so glad I decided to, and I plan on doing another one in January. Thank you all for your continued support. Happy holidays 😊❤️”" -Colleen Ogren
So what is the 24-day Challenge exactly? Advocare describes it as “a comprehensive supplementation and nutrition program designed to give your body the jumpstart it needs to help you reach your goals. There’s something for everyone – whether you are looking for weight management, energy, overall body composition or overall wellness.” The 24-day Challenge comes with a daily guide, and one box each of Herbal Cleanse, Advocare Fiber, OmegaPlex, MNS (3, C or E), Meal Replacement Shake, and two boxes of Advocare Spark. You go through two phases. Phase 1 is ‘Cleanse Phase.’ These are days 1 to 10 where you are preparing your body for optimal nutrition. Phase 2 is ‘Max Phase.’ These are days 11 to 24 where you are fueling your body for maximum results.

Colleen’s experience has inspired me to commit to the 24-Day Challenge, thus I will be doing it with her in January. I figure after all the holiday goodies and with preparing for a competition, it’s a great way to cleanse my body of all the junk and get on the right path. Maybe that’ll be my New Year’s Resolution: commit to my body’s health for 24 days. Supposedly, it takes 21 days to form a habit, so imagine keeping up with this for 24…I think that’s the perfect recipe for creating a healthy habit! I highly encourage you to join myself and Colleen in January! Talk to one of your coaches here at Fuse if you’re interested in challenging yourself with us!
