It’s Harvest season, and while October is the first of many months when we crave comforting soups and festive drinks, the Stronger U Community is ready to help you stay focused and moving during the Halloween season. Beginning on October 10th, the Stronger U Community will be transformed into a frighteningly good time with a 3-week Jacked-o-Lantern challenge! This movement-based challenge, fearlessly led by Coach Jack Purdom, will have you moving, laughing, and getting stronger during the month of October.
About the Challenge
This challenge is broken up into four different categories that focus on strength, cardio, movement, and a little extra community fun. You will be able to download a challenge calendar and then will work to complete the exercises provided by Coach Jack. These exercises will not require any extra equipment (but if you need a little extra weight, you could pick up a pumpkin at your local patch).
Each Saturday, Coach Jack will be live for a Wicked Weekend Workout. Come ready to sweat as Coach Jack will coach you through the movements and help you start your Saturday strong. Also, we’ve heard some rumors that there may be some costumes.
This challenge will last until Halloween, so don’t delay! Find out more in the Stronger U Community!
About Coach Jack
Jack Purdom has been a Stronger U coach for 3.5 years and has run my fitness and mindset coaching company Fifth Element Fitness since 2016. He lives in the western suburbs of Chicago with my wife Grace (who works for another SU favorite, Peloton). You will find him hanging out with his family when he’s not coaching, dominating on the pickleball court, or reading sci-fi/fantasy.Interesting jobs he’s held in this industry before now include: trainer at a $10/mo gym, managing corporate fitness centers of big-time companies (Kraft, McDonald’s, etc), and early on, a protein bar startup with some college friends called…Brotein Bars. 🤦🏻♂️ He’s a big fan of injecting some fun and humor into these very serious goals, so let’s get to work (but not take ourselves too seriously).
