We are pleased to announce that we are now a license holder and partnering with MyZone. Lots of deep thoughts and discussions have gone into wondering how we can make people more accountable and enthused during this lockdown period. We were actually inspired by Shaun McDonald who completed 365 consecutive days of physical activity in a row, this was how we knew this was what we wanted.... it was all recorded by MyZone (well done mate, amazing achievement).
WTMWTD will be running monthly challenges for EVERYONE to join in. These will include:
⚫️ Competition with everyone in the group
⚫️ Monthly prizes for top efforts
⚫️ Team Challenges (area/team against each other)
⚫️ Consistency prizes
⚫️ Age category challenges
At the start of each month your MyZone Effort Points (MEP’s - you will become obsessed with these believe me haha) are wiped to zero and the challenges begin again. If you want more info of exactly what MyZone does then please look at https://www.myzone.org/myzone-user
We REALLY want the whole WTMWTD community involved with this, staying accountable and driving each other on through these times where we need it most. Being fit and healthy WILL help you against illness, especially with what happening now, so why not give yourself the best chance with that. As we have partnered with MyZone they have given us a MASSIVE discount which takes the MyZone from £129.99 down to £69.99 (£60 OFF), just click on the button below:

LETS MAKE THIS MONTHLY CHALLENGE MASSIVE!!
This is going to be a good year! Welcome back and HNY to you all. Lets put 2020 aside and start this year with a positive attitude, if you think this year is going to be bad it will be bad so try and look for the positives in everyday. It's been lovely to see people 'dippin' over the holidays I think we've all noticed the drop in temperature but it still feels great right!!? Try and not make the same mistake we maybe have been guilty of in the past of trying to change everything in the first month. There is a great saying which is quite pertinent "You cant boil the Ocean" (Although it would be nice this time of the year!). If you plan to change your fitness, your diet, your relationships, your health, your sleep pattern, you work/life balance, your parenting, your hobbies....you will only be disappointed when you don't achieve everything on your list set small achievable goals that give you the biggest sense of satisfaction and the rest will fall into place. Whilst we remain in lockdown we are doing a Friday morning LIVE so join us and share you experience and what works for you in these tough times! We all cant wait to see you in person....hold tight!
WTMWTD has teamed up with Food Crisis Gosport to help out with raising awareness and supporting their charity in helping the 3,672 children that will be waking up on Christmas Day with nothing. If you are able to offer food and brand new boxed toys we will be picking them up from you or you can drop them to various locations around gosport (TBC). Lets dig deep and help out as much you can to make Christmas better for those less fortunate.
After making contact through the website Madelein got in touch and has created the first regular international branch of WTMWTD. Madelein has suffered in the past with her mental health and wants to use what she has learnt to help others in her local area. She is a personal trainer and she runs local sports groups too. Grotto Beach is where she meets and its unlike many UK beaches in that its warm and has sand! Who is up for a WTMWTD trip??
Its been a long few weeks but we are back! This weeks seeks the end of lockdown 2.0 and the restarting of our WTMWTD groups. Its been fantastic that people have still been walking and dipping and thanks for sharing your photos! We know its been hard and for some its meant a slip back into a poor routine. Now its time to pick yourself up and set small challenges, when you meet these challenges you become more resilient and with resilience comes strength this is all a positive movement in your life. Please get in touch with your local group leader for more information on start dates, times and any safety guidelines.
