2014 BFF Instructor Challenge Winners and Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Today is a day to spread the love. Make sure to tell those you love how much they mean to you, not just today, but everyday.

We just finished our 5 week Bok Fu Fitness Challenge for our staff! They did a fantastic job and we saw some big gains in their fitness and overall conditioning. I was very impressed with the group’s overall enthusiasm as well as their consistency through the challenge. This year, the challenge was different than year’s past. Each person choose a BFF for the BFF challenge. This time, rather than being an individual challenge, each person’s points would count to their team’s total. So they would be accountable, not only to themselves, but also to their BFF throughout the 5 weeks. We set a benchmark workout on day one and repeated that workout on the last day to mark progress. They got points for making it to each team workout, logging their food, as well as meeting exercise goals for the week. Each staff member that participated in the challenge donated $20 to a pool of money and half of that will go to the USA Team Fund as a donation, and the other half will be a donation to a charity to be decided on by the winning pair. Although it was a very close race between a few teams, it’s time to announce the winning BFF pair…

Congratulations to Ms. Ellett and Mr. Chapa for being crowned our 2014 BFF Instructor Challenge Winners! Aside from bragging rights for the year, Ms. Ellett and Mr. Chapa get to decide which charity will receive our donation. We are all very proud of their consistency and effort throughout the 5 weeks!
