1. Run streak
This is a classic runner challenge where one makes sure to get in a run every single day. Many runners set a minimum distance or amount of time to run each day. For example: a run less than 4K may not count for some runners. While it may not be advisable to do a run streak for an extended period of time, a three-week or month-long challenge should be safe for most so long as the runner includes easy runs, low mileage days and doesn’t increase their run distances by unrealistic amounts.
2. Daily ab workout
The idea around this one is straightforward: do an ab circuit workout each day. Like the run streak, the length and intensity should vary. Runners who take a stab at this challenge should vary up the exercises so as to target different core muscle groups.
3. New weekly workout
Maybe once a week, you change things up a little. Don’t let your body get used to a routine, variation is key. Say each Saturday of the month you head to the gym with a partner and see how you do in the yoga or pilates sessions. Or, get ready for summer and make a splash in the pool.
4. Morning goals
Perhaps it’s not so much about what you do for fitness as it is about when you do it. Set that alarm clock a little earlier and vow to not hit snooze. There’s an argument out there that it takes 21 days to form a habit. If that holds true, you’ll be an early bird within a month.

6. Plank it out
Ah, the plank challenge! The premise of this one is to get into plank position for a few minutes every day. Time it. Then, each day, tack on more time to what you did previously.
7. Reign in the diet
Eat healthier. How many of us have set out to achieve that goal before? Make a point of cutting out a couple of your less healthy go-to indulgences. (Nachos and macaroni, ciao!) Another way to get into this challenge is to purposely add healthier items to the cart, be it an extra package of mixed greens, whole grain cereal or whatever you choose.
