The 67 Day Challenge Is Live!
What's good everyone?
The 67 day challenge is here!
Today (Feb 15th 2018) marks the 10th day since the official release of the challenge. As of Feb 13th, the e-book had been downloaded over 100 times. That is absolutely crazy to me.
I want to express how truly grateful I am for everybody's encouraging messages. The reception of the challenge has been amazing and more importantly, most of you have decided to tackle the challenge head on and that's what it's all about.
One hundred downloads doesn't necessarily mean 100 people are going to participate. Some people were just curious. Others simply won't get through the entire 67 days.
Nonetheless, I am still grateful for every single person who took some of their precious time to download and read the e-book.
If you're still thinking about it and debating whether or not you should participate, I say give it a try! I'll be giving away over 500$ in prizes the second week of June for the 3 best transformations voted by the public.
But let's forget about the prizes for a minute. You'll never know if you're able to get through the 67 days, or do anything else in life, until you just try. That's a fact and this is an important concept I believe everybody needs to grasp if you want to evolve into the person you want to become.
There's never been a better time to test yourself mentally and see if you can do something to take you to a whole new level physically. To prove to yourself that you can do something you've never done before.
At least you'll separate yourself from 96.3% of the population that are too scared to try anything new in their lives.
I totally made that number up.
I've outlined this in the e-book and mentioned it many times on Facebook and Instagram but I want to make this clear again:
You have until June 4th 2018 to get through the entire 67 days. You didn't have to start last week or this week. You can pick any start date that works for you according to your schedule.
June 4th is the official cut off date to submit your transformation pictures. No pictures will be accepted after June 4th 11:59pm EST.
In addition, some have been having issues with displaying the 67 day challenge "DAY 1" poster on their phones to take their "before" picture. The color of the poster displayed on a smartphone is interfering with the picture quality. I should've thought this through a little bit more, my apologies. We need both your body and the poster to be clear.
If you couldn't get a clear picture of yourself with the poster and have already started the challenge, that is fine. As long as we can kind of see it, We will accept it.
For your "after" picture, make sure to print the "DAY 67" poster in COLOR and take a clear picture with that. There will be no exceptions if you want to be eligible for any prizes.
This is for only for the ones that have started already. If you begin the challenge after Feb 15th, I expect you to PRINT both posters in COLOR and take your pictures with it.
Check out @big_wowo's post on Instagram for a clear example of what we're looking for.
For the shy ones, you don't have to put these up on social media. You can send these to me in whichever way works for you. However, they will be posted on The Force Academy's Instagram account, because the public will vote on the best transformation.
The latest date you can start the 67 day challenge in order to be eligible for prizes is April 2nd 2018.
Those prizes will be announced within the next month or so.
Lead by Example
I've decided that I will do the challenge myself for the second time, starting around mid-late March! That way, it gives me a little more time to put on lean mass before fat burning season.
On the basketball court, I've always been one to lead by example. This is no different to me. I've done it once and I will do it again. Only this time around, everything will be documented through a series of videos on the blog and YouTube for you guys to see first hand what's it's like to go through the journey of the 67 days.
I guess you can call it an official vlog.
As promised, more workout videos are on the way. I'll be recording a full leg workout and more superset exercises, that way you guys can spice up your training and burn more calories.
Also, I'm still in the process of completing my PN1 certification. I've been slacking because of my grandmother's passing & the e-book release but I should be done with that sooner than later.
Apparel is probably the biggest of them all.
I had shown previews of t-shirt designs on Snapchat in early January and this is still in the plans. I have begun speaking with suppliers out in China to mass produce Force Academy apparel. Unfortunately, the good people of China are on vacation until late February/early March to celebrate the Chinese New Year, meaning the apparel won't be available until probably early April.
If everything goes according to plan or course.
If you're already started with the challenge, I salute you. It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone and do something completely out of nature. It'll be worth it I promise!
That is all for now. Stay tuned.
