What is the "Reveal Your Champion" program?
Reveal your Champion is a one-year training program that provides a variety of workouts focused on different areas of fitness to help you become the best athlete you can be! Each month program participants will set goals and work to achieve them. The program also includes health and wellness activities in addition to the workouts. WE are going to help YOU Reveal Your Champion!
How does it work?
Each month a new program will be published on the Reveal Your Champion website. Each day will consist of an activity or workout. You will be able to access all of the resources, including pictures and videos, here on the Reveal Your Champion website to help you complete the program. Prior to the beginning of each month you will set a goal for that month which will help you Reveal Your Champion!
READY TO GET STARTED?
Let’s get buff with Special Olympics Ontario in the Month of March. In Month 3 of Reveal Your Champion, it is time to get your PUMP on. In Muscle March, we will be focusing on our overall strength. Strength comes in all shapes, sizes, and forms. Each and every sport you play, train, and compete for needs strength. Having a strong back, chest, stomach, butt, legs, and arms is important to make sure you are performing at your best, whether that is throwing, jumping, swimming or running. Strength is an important predictor of performance in many Special Olympics sports. All the workouts and exercises for Month 3 of RYC will help your body stay strong and fit by building healthy bones and muscles.
So, what makes this month different?
In the Reveal Your Champion training program, each week will continue to strengthen your body, develop speed and power, build your endurance and agility, but more workouts will be dedicated to this month’s theme of Strength. Just like February when you had 2 or even 3 Balance and Flexibility focused workouts during a week of training, March will take on the same challenge. Each week we will have 3 strength training workouts with a focused body region: Upper Body, Lower Body, or Core. Over a 2-week training period, you will be focusing on selected exercises in each of the workout groups and will progress to higher intensity the next time we return to that training group. These sessions will be paired with a few other general and full body workouts throughout the week to make sure you are becoming a well-rounded athlete.
We are continuing to pair our monthly focus workouts with general workouts to make sure we are building well-rounded and strong athletes.
LIVE: This month we will be featuring RYC workouts lead by Lululemon Yoga Instructors. Check our weekly callendar and follow along with our "Mind Over Mat" virtual workouts.
