Maybe your New Year's resolution is to drop those last 5 pounds, or you need inspiration to get out of a workout rut—or you just want to get back into the swing of things after weeks of holiday treats. No matter your goal, SHAPE's Slim Down Challenge is the answer. It's a workout-and-eating plan designed to make you feel fit, trim, energized, and overall incredible. Best part? No crazy diets or hours spent in the gym.
The workout portion of the 30-day challenge stars Anna Victoria, Instagram fitness sensation and creator of the Fit Body Guides. She'll have you breaking a sweat with seven total-body moves that yield awesome results. These powerhouse moves are all you'll need to get through the month—you'll increase the reps each week. Couple your workouts with small expert-backed diet changes (cutting added sugar and increasing protein), and you'll be amazed at how good you can feel.
Of course, your progress doesn't just stop once you've completed the first 30 days. The editors at SHAPE have compiled a list of the 10 rules for weight loss that last, and the only three weight-loss recipes you need to make healthy eating not just enjoyable, but simple and delicious, too. On a roll and want even more? Download the SHAPE Slim Down e-book for the four-week plan to lose 10 pounds fast. To practically guarantee success, put your money where your mouth is and join the SHAPE Slim Down DietBet. Bet $30 that you'll drop pounds between January 19 and February 15 (and actually do it, duh), and you get to split the pot with everyone else who crushes their weight-loss goals. Weight loss with a cash reward? Sounds like a no-brainer.
Time to show that resolution who's boss.
