And yes, there will be prizes...to find out what it takes to be a #Gymshark66 winner, take a read through last year's winner announcement article.

HOW TO TAKE PART IN THE GYMSHARK 66 CHALLENGE:

  1. From December 20th, download your free pledge card(s) here*. You'll need two - one for your first image/entry, and one for your final image/entry.
  2. On your pledge card*, write down the habit/goal that you want to achieve during the 66 days.
  3. You have from the 1st of January 00:00 GMT, till the 6th January 23:59 GMT to upload a photo to Instagram, Twitter or the Gymshark Facebook Community Group, of yourself holding your pledge card*. Be sure to tag @Gymshark / #Gymshark66 on your post, and include proof of date on your pledge card (ie. 01/01/20). This is your entry.
  4. Remember, this is a challenge, so there will be the occasional prize (we’ll tell you more about this later). 
  5. During the Gymshark 66 Challenge, you must post a minimum of 2 times per week, on the main feed of your chosen social media account to demonstrate what you are doing to achieve your pledge. This can be through workout videos or progress pictures - just don't forget to tag us with @Gymshark / #Gymshark66.
  6. On the 6th of March (06/03/20) you MUST upload your final #Gymshark66 photo of yourself holding your pledge card by 23:59 GMT. Again, be sure to include proof of date (06/03/20) and tag us with @Gymshark / #Gymshark66. This photo commemorates the end of your journey.

During the 66 days, we urge you to share your journey with the world. From workouts, to progress pictures, we want to see it all! Remember to tag us along the way with @Gymshark and #Gymshark66.

*If you're unable to print off your Gymshark pledge card, please feel free to create your own! Just remember to include "Gymshark 66" and proof of date - this must be between January 1st-6th. Please note that this challenge does not start until January 1st - any entries before this date, will not be eligible.

All in all, it's simple: find your reasons not to...

I'M SCARED TO FAIL. PEOPLE LIKE ME DON'T DO THAT. I'VE NEVER BEEN SPORTY. I DON'T KNOW HOW.

And turn them into your reasons why...

I'M DOING IT FOR MYSELF. I WANT TO RUN MY FIRST 5K. MY MENTAL HEALTH IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN I THOUGHT. I WANT TO LOSE 10 LBS. 

ABOUT #GYMSHARK66

YOUR GOALS DON'T HAVE TO BE HEROIC, THEY JUST HAVE TO BE TRUE TO YOURSELF.

Over the past two years, #Gymshark66 has been the catalyst to help thousands of people develop a healthy lifestyle, begin a fitness journey and smash their New Year goals. But why 66?

They say it takes 66 days to form a habit; we believe it takes 66 days to change your life.

This year, the pledge card represents something tangible, something about #Gymshark66 that you can physically grasp, personalise and doodle on, or use as a paper aeroplane should you want to watch this year's challenge unfold before taking part in 2021.

Remember it’s not all about fitness challenges and physical changes – you could be looking for workout motivation to build muscle, become a healthier weight or train for a triathlon. Or, it could be a different kind of healthy lifestyle challenge, like taking time to meditate, making more nutritious meals or simply taking time to form healthy habits. Whatever your personal challenge, now is the time to commit to it with #Gymshark66. 

Your mindset, and the strength of your determination may be put to the test. On the days you don't want to continue, remember: although you are doing this for yourself, you are not alone. 

Through these 66 days, we pledge to help turn your losses into learnings because, we aren't united by our goals, but the journeys we take to achieve them together.

. . . 

THEY SAY IT TAKES 66 DAYS TO FORM A HABIT; WE BELIEVE IT TAKES 66 DAYS TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

IN THESE 66 DAYS, WE CHALLENGE YOU TO TURN YOUR REASONS NOT TO, INTO YOUR REASONS WHY.

YOUR EXCUSES SHOULD NOT BE SEEN AS YOUR LIMITATIONS, BUT INSTEAD, AS A REMINDER OF THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO MAKE.

CHECK BACK ON DECEMBER 20th TO DOWNLOAD YOUR FREE #GYMSHARK66 CALENDAR AND PLEDGE CARD.

This is only the beginning of what's to come. What's stopping you?
