The One Hundred Rep Challenge is……..
- A simple practice designed to establish an re-enforce positive, enduring habits
- Suitable for everyone, young & old, active & sedentary, everyone can benefit by using 100 reps to work on the areas of their mental & physical wellbeing that require attention. We approach everything as scalable” – rather than one size fits all, the 100 Rep Challenge helps participants find the best route for themselves
- The Challenge is a personal one, about accountability and the value of consistent effort. It can work as an individual or group effort but the focus remains a personal one. The Challenge can be used by teachers, coaches, trainers, athletes, families and groups of any kind who require a starting point for a simple daily practice.
- Almost any physical activity can be adapted to the Challenge. 100 is simply a number, a starting point, a catalyst. The drills themselves can be about anything that promotes a sense of ownership regarding our health and wellbeing. Mindfulness breathing, stretching and mobility, strength training, rehabilitation –- all of these modalities have their place.
Some time ago it became obvious to some of us that we were sending people on a journey without a map. They knew where they wanted to go, …they just didn’t have a compass. Anyone can learn the basics of getting fit, eating sensibly, taking better care of themselves but without a regular daily practice to re-enforce these habits it is HARD. Why is it bad habits are so difficult to break when good habits are so easy to give up?!
We all need simple rituals, a practice in our lives, that amidst the chaos allows us a little time to breath, move, take charge, focus and relax.
So join us, 100 reps each day, 700 reps each week…36,500 each year. Small wins, big changes!
Rannoch Donald originally wrote about the 100 Rep Challenge concept on the Simple Strength blog back in January 2010 –
This simple concept has attracted the attention of trainers and fitness enthusiasts the world over and continues to grow as the idea of simple, consistent, daily movement and its benefits spreads. Rannoch has trained and worked with some of the world’s most progressive coaches, teachers and trainers including Andy McKenzie, Erwan Le Corre, Martin Rooney, Pavel Tsatsouline, Mike Mahler, Steve Cotter, JC Santana, Ken Blackburn, Alvaro Romano, Dan Inosanto and Scott Sonnon, all of them influencing and contributing to his own development. But more than anything, what Rannoch really wants is for YOU to “Get some movement in your day”.
