Give us a quick overview of the training and exercise plan that you followed during the challenge.
I did HIIT workouts twice a week, focused on getting my steps up and doing as many roadblocks as possible (with correct form and doing advanced options).
If you could give 3 pieces of advice to future challengers, what would they be?

Why should people enter the challenge?
If you are willing to put in the effort, then I recommend doing the challenge… and join a team.
The support and motivation from being in a team helps when you just don’t feel like it anymore.
