Take The Challenge

Do you ever wonder why some people make regular exercise and healthy eating seem so seamless?  Me too!!!  What makes the difference between “success and failure” when it comes to wellness behaviors?  First we have to redefine success and failure, as they can both be positive entities if viewed properly, but that’s a separate post!

I have spent tons of time assessing this enigma, and I have some theories.  The Triple Braided Challenges are one of the offspring of these theories…in fact all of Triple Braided is an off shoot of trying to create resources to make everyone more successful in their personal wellness journey.

What Triple Braided Challenges will do for you:

    • They are designed to provide that wee bit of extra incentive that sometimes our own personal grit and resolve does not always supply.  Peer pressure and prizes, on the other hand, have freakish powers of persuasion!
    • They will help create incremental habit changes over time.
    • They will allow you the opportunity to see what you can really do and accomplish.
    • They infuse nutrition and wellness tips, tricks, and information to assist you on your journey.
    • They are built in accountability, which for most of us, is the difference!

To register for a Triple Braided Challenge go to the Contact Us at the bottom right of this page…fill in your contact information, and write in the message section which challenge you are taking!  You will receive a message back within 24 hours confirming your entry.
