If you are looking for the best program to make a complete healthy lifestyle transformation, look no further than the 10-week challenge.
Meet Amy Colburn, a high school math and science teacher, a two time 10-week challenge graduate (read about first challenge here), a “swinger” of kettlebells and a “lifter” of heavy weights.

To hear about Amy’s experience read the interview below.
March 2016 – May 2016
Besides being an absolute warrior in the gym, what is your day job?
I am a high school math and science teacher at Everett High School!
How did you learn about the challenge and was it a hard decision to sign up?
I did the fall 10 week challenge and it went so well that I decided to do the spring challenge as well! It wasn’t hard to sign up for a second challenge because of the time and effort that Garett, Jessica, and everyone else at CKO and 2.0 put into the challenges.
What was your favorite aspect of the challenge?
My favorite aspect of the challenge is all the encouragement from the trainers and the other challengers. It doesn’t matter if you are doing amazingly or struggling, everyone is always willing to put in the time to encourage, offer advice, or just be there to lend an ear.
What was the hardest part about the challenge?
This challenge was more difficult for me than the first one. As a teacher, the fall is a time where school is just starting and energy is high – because of this the challenge was another way to focus that energy and I was able to stay super focused. I think being towards the end of school, this challenge was more difficult to find that same sense of consistency. I was able to stay consistent in the gym but I found myself making choices that maybe weren’t the best food wise.
Drop it like a squat!
What motivates you to walk through that door day after day…
Seeing progress! Of course the scale is always there, but I typically care more about the progress I make in the gym. Knowing that over the course of just 10 weeks I can see gainz in all of the different exercises is really cool.
Amy loves Kettlebells
What would your advice be to some considering doing a 10 week challenge?
I would definitely encourage anyone to do a 10 week challenge. Don’t be afraid to join or think that you can’t do it because of this, that, or something else. The owners and trainers at 2.0 and CKO are amazing and have always helped me modify things or give suggestions on improving what I can do.
