The 75 Strong Challenge: Programming essential habits for a happier, healthier, stronger you for life, in only 75 days

We all have the potential to be the healthier, fitter, happier, and more productive version of ourselves that we want to be, and ultimately can be. 

However, in the world we live in, overcoming the negative influences and temptations that keep us from being that better version can be extremely difficult.

The fast food, the beer, the habit of not exercising or not prioritizing health, the habit of focusingon what’s wrong in life instead of focusing on what’s right  all of these small things can hold us back just enough from making the strongest, healthiest, most productive version of ourselves a reality each and every day.

Whether set back and not so great routine was triggered by improbable world events, too long at a job you hate, a relationship that recently ended, or just the common mediocrity of daily life – I know how you feel and understand where you’ve been.  I know how the normal pressures of life can erode at the little, positive things we do, and can imperceptibly push us into the common yet negative routines that erode the foundational healthiness, happiness, and productivity that could pave the path to the life we’ve always dreamed of.

Breaking out of the routines of our normal lives and recreating that foundation of positive constructive habits that naturally lead to a better us is tough at best, and impossible at worst…or so we think. However, the act of doing it, and the benefit you can achieve is priceless.

I know that recreating the essential daily habits  that lead to great relationships, professional success, and having a body you loving seeing and being  is achievable and very possible in only 75 days.

That possibility, and goal, is exactly why I designed the 75 Strong challenge.

We’ve already agreed that we all have the potential to be the best versions of ourselves – fit, happy, healthy, and productive. We’re just missing the right habits, those habits essential to a healthy, balanced life and ingrained deep in our psyche and routines. 

The 75 day 75 Strong challenge is the tool you need to reprogram your life with the essential habits that will make you fitter, happier, healthier, and more productive on day 75 and beyond

And to motivate you to start and stick with the 75 Strong challenge, that is why I wrote this book:

The 75 Strong Challenge

To further help you understand the challenge and how you will to benefit, this book shares the 75 day challenge based approach for using small daily habits to carve the foundation for and build the life, body, mind state, and emotional health that you want and deserve.

But the potential for this challenge  and the potential for me to help you  goes far beyond the book.  When you buy the book, I include free bonuses of a printable checklist, a printable motivational journal, and my newest book  which takes a structured approach to helping you define what you want in life, and the best to get there for you all created using your extensive knowledge of you.

But more on that later.

For now, let’s cover how you can do the 75 Strong challenge, on your own, starting today.

Introducing the 75 Strong Challenge: A program to create essential positive habits, and a better you, in 75 days

By taking on the 75 day challenge to do 10 selected and invaluable tasks everyday for 75 days, you will successfully program a new daily routine that will improve every aspect of you and your life – physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and professionally – in a way that will lead to benefits far beyond the final day of your 75 day challenge.

You’ll be left with a set of 10 near autonomic daily practices that will stay with you for as long as you want – or for life.

DURING THE 75 STRONG CHALLENGE, YOU’LL INGRAIN THESE PRICELESS HABITS

  1. Being thankful, appreciative, and satisfied with life
  2. Appreciating and being happy with who you are now
  3. Taking time to reset yourself mentally and emotionally each day by relaxing and recharging with intention
  4. Moving and using your body in a way that keeps you healthy, capable, and feeling good every day
  5. Eating in a way that leads to looking and feeling better
  6. Avoiding the costs of alcohol – mentally, emotionally, socially, and physically
  7. Engaging your mind in an enjoyable way that makes you mentally stronger
  8. Learning new, empowering, and enjoyable concepts, ideas, and skills
  9. Actively and frequently engaging in your passions that make you deeply happy
  10. Acknowledging the value of the efforts you put in daily, and patting yourself on the back  for that confidence, satisfaction, and selfappreciation boost

The outcomes of these tasks, done once, are worthwhile feelings of accomplishment and a burst of those happy hormones all performed as the starting points of positive feedback loops.

The outcome of ingraining these practices as habits is priceless, strong, positive momentum that helps you maintain a pattern of personal growth and improvement – in your physique, your happiness, and your mind – day in and day out, no matter what life throws you.

The long term outcome is strength and resilience, no matter what life throws at you.

So, how do we achieve this foundation of new, empowering habits that naturally lead to a better life during the 75 Strong Challenge?

HOW TO DO THE 75 STRONG CHALLENGE

In the 75 Strong Challenge, we will apply scientific research backed approaches to build 10 essential practices for happy, healthy life, and turn them into habits.  We do this by aiming to accomplish each of our target tasks for 75 days straight, aimed at a 90% completion rate.  That formula  75 days at 90% completion  is scientifically proven to upgrade an action to a habit.

The 10 tasks of the 75 Strong Challenge that we’ll complete daily are:

1. Be Thankful: List 20 things you are thankful for, written or aloud

2. Appreciate yourself: List 20 things you admire about yourself, written or aloud

3. Be Still: Sit quietly or meditate for 15 minutes

4. Move and mobilize: Exercise or stretch

5. Eat Healthily, following eating practices that leverage “incremental improvement” in a way suited to your body

6. Skip Alcohol to embrace the mental clarity, emotional benefits, and physical fitness improvement that comes with an alcohol free lifetstyle

7. Read a nonfiction book for 15 minutes to engage and train your mind

8. Learn a new concept or skill for 15 minutes to continuously grow

9. Do something you’re passionate about for 15 minutes to ensure everyday is filled with something that matters to you

10. Record the process by acknowledging your efforts

We’ll take these 10 potential actions, all scientifically proven to universally improve your life, and apply best practices for making these actions habits (again, proven by science) while accounting for your busy life, and ensuring our challenge is structured in an achievable, manageable way.

By doing this over 75 days you will actively improve your life, in addition to building habits that will:

  • Continuously improve your health to create a you that consistently feels and looks better as each day passes
  • Increase appreciation and enjoyment of the life you have, wherever you are, cultivating more satisfaction and emotional and mental resilience daily
  • Helping you achieve inner peace by cultivating a happier more appreciative outlook, and more satisfaction with life, no matter where you are, and no matter what life looks like

We can all agree that these habits would be excellent to maintain on a daily basis, right? And if we could snap our fingers and make these 10 tasks mindless habits, we absolutely would, right?

So, if we know the positive potential in these tasks, why don’t more of us do these things on a daily basis?

We don’t naturally do these things because either 1) we’ve fallen into a rut of counterproductive routines in our daily lives or 2) we constantly expose ourselves to so many negative influences that moving forward becomes a monumental task.

We don’t naturally do these tasks because there is more momentum in our negative routines and habits – eating junky fast food, skipping the workout, focusing on the negative – than momentum and motivation in our positive habits, that continually lead to positive outcomes.

The 75 Strong challenge delivers the structure you need, to slowly build up the positive momentum, and positive habits, that will help you overcome the negative routines and keep you moving forward, through those obstacles, on day 75 and far into the future.

THE PROBLEM WE ALL HAVE: YOU KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO BE HEALTHIER, HAPPIER, AND MORE PRODUCTIVE, BUT LIFE, YOUR HABITS   BUT  YOUR SOCIAL CIRCLE, AND YOUR LACK OF MOTIVATION ARE HOLDING YOU BACK

We all know that we need to eat healthier, to get outside and move our bodies, or need to engage our minds.  We all know that these tasks are worth the investment of time and energy.

However, that knowledge and the desire of improvement alone aren’t enough to overcome the external pressures in your environment that are holding you back, holding you in place, and holding you in your rut.

That knowledge and desire isn’t enough to overcome the habitual feeling of laziness that built up from siting home during a pandemic.

That knowledge and desire isn’t enough to overcome the “feeling off” and demotivated that comes after a breakup or getting fired from a job.

That knowledge and desire isn’t enough to overcome a life time of simple, empty routine, that feels like it fills your life and leaves no room for improvement.

This knowledge doesn’t change feeling like you’re in a rut and missing out on opportunities for enjoyment, and happiness that lie in front of you, and missing the opportunity to realize your desires and aspirations with minimal effort

This knowledge doesn’t naturally change unhealthy habits (drinking, eating unhealthily, skipping workouts) that waste time, money and energy.

This doesn’t change the habit of overlooking the value that currently exists in your life, the things that you have to happy be about, the strengths you have to use and develop as your wish.

This doesn’t change missing out on the daily opportunity of small tasks, and habits, that contribute to a stronger, more capable you

This knowledge and desire doesn’t change missing out on meeting your potential and being who you could and were meant to be – physically, mentally (alert and astute, growing more intelligent by the day, and mentally strong enough to make the most of the world and life around you), and emotionally (strong, happy, resilient, and satisfied)

You know what does change all of this? The 75 Strong Challenge, doing 10 life improving tasks daily until they’re habits that improve every day of your life indefinitely, changes all of this – delivering small steps in a structured, self motivating way

The solution to the problem of how to overcome the negative forces holding you back is:

 Developing a habit of improving your health, improving your happiness and satisfaction/inner peace, and overall resilience and strength day by day

 Striving to build these habits in an achievable way that builds lifelong habits

 End with a set of automatic habits that build improved health, happiness, enjoyment, and resilience day by day

 Doing our list of 10 small, achievable habits proven to improve the foundations of your life  for 75 days making them habits

The solution is 75 Strong, and my book “The 75 Strong Challenge” will help you start, stay motivated, and figure out what to do next.

INTRODUCING THE BOOK AND PROGRAM: 75 STRONG

The 75 Strong Challenge is a program to build a foundation of positive habits in a way that overcomes all of the other obstacles, garbage, and nonsense in our lives, and systemically ingrains in us a habit doing what we know leads to the “better us” that we desire.

The solution to building a fit, healthy, happy, and productive you is the 75 Strong Challenge.

In the book 75 Strong I break down the 10 daily actions that will improve our lives daily and indefinitely, I share a simple scientifically proven approach for making those actions habits and I detail why these habits are so value, to motivate you to start and stick to our 75 day challenge, and ultimately making our 10 choice tasks habits for life.

Then I share valuable ideas on “what next,” after the challenge  to help you maintain the habits that work for the life you want, and to build other habits even better suited to your life.

But what makes me think the 75 Strong challenge approach will work?  What makes me qualified to share such a grand idea?

WHAT INSPIRED THE 75 STRONG CHALLENGE: MILITARY TRAINING AND WANDERING THE WORLD IN SEARCH OF BETTER WAYS TO LIVE

How do I know the 75 Strong challenge will make you fitter, healthier, happier, and more productive?

Because I’ve crafted the challenge based on what has worked in my experience (for myself and others) specifically targeting the emotional, physical, and performance  benefits proven,, through scientific research and personal experience, to add up to a better life.

I have run through the challenge multiple times and have used this approach to build specific, targeted habits that serve my long term goals – in all areas of my life over the last 20 years…

AS A FORMER MARINE, I USED AND CONTINUE TO USE FOCUSED DEVELOPMENT OF AUTONOMIC SKILLS AND HABITS FOR LONG TERM IMPROVEMENT AND GOALS  AND SO WILL YOU IN THIS PROGRAM

As a Marine, from boot camp, to predeployment training, to combat deployments, identifying key essential habits and then programming them became my core approach to personal mental, emotional, and physical development to evolve daily into a stronger, more capable, more resilient human being.  From “emotional hygiene” and conditioning a strong mindset to daily fitness training and  active recovery

This approach, of living a daily life filled with the habits I want to practice, adds up to the life I desire and intend to live and the person I desire to be.

This approach, of daily dedication and improvement achieved via simple, practical steps lies at the core of the 75 Strong challenge – and you will use this philosophy to cultivate a healthier, happier, stronger, more resilient you in the long term. 

Kaizen. Atomic Habits.  Building Beaches with grains of sand.

Whatever you call it, this approach of adding up small actions to create big wins is a solid path to long term success, and underpins the 75 Strong approach.

AS A FITNESS TRAINER WITH OVER A DECADE OF EXPERIENCE TRAINING CLIENTS FROM ALL BACKGROUNDS, I VALUE PHYSICAL HEALTH AND FITNESS, AND PRIORITIZE SUCH IN THIS PROGRAM, AS PHYSICAL HEALTH UNDERPINS AN ENJOYABLE LIFE

The ability to move and play, empowered and pain free, while being happy with your body correlates highly with happiness and satisfaction in your life.

As a Crossfit Trainer, former military fitness specialist, adventure sportsman, and avid proponent of lifelong fitness, I understand how important physical fitness and health is to enjoying your life and being happy with your body, and how to achieve it.

In the 75 Strong program, and outlined in the 75 Strong book, we set the foundation for building a fit, energetic, and active version of you based on my experience training (and motivating) hundreds of individuals and creating thousands of workouts and workout programs to help people reach their goals of being fit and healthy and feeling good.

The book, 75 Strong, distills the foundational fitness ethos – just move and maintain mobility, for life – into what will become a lifelong and empowering practice for you.

AFTER 5 YEARS OF EXPLORING THE WORLD, AND ALTERNATIVE WAYS OF LIVING AND GROWING FROM CULTURES AROUND THE WORLD, I ADD IN THE MOST POTENT PRACTICES FOR IMPROVING YOUR LIFE

Over the past 5 years, I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world as a traveler, bouncing from place to place, and a nomad, staying in welcoming places as I saw fit.

In that time, I’ve aimed to absorb the best from cultures around the world.  From studying bushido in Japan, to listening to Army Generals share their views on enabling happiness and inner peace, to learning about stillness from Thai monks, I have been lucky enough to be the impromptu student on cross cultural lessons in achieving inner peace and stillness  and I share the ideas and approaches that have stuck with me and benefited me immensely.

Meditation with Monks in Thailand
A priceless experience, studying mindfulness with monks in Thailand

Meditating or making time for stillness.

Being thankful and appreciative as a life improving path to happiness.

Building a standard of using your body to develop it, maintain it, appreciate it, and enjoy.

Including activities we are passionate about in our lives.

…and many other practices.

After this 5 years of experiencing and studying, a handful of practices stood out as correlating with happiness, productivity, and health.

EVERYTHING RECOMMENDED IN THIS BOOK IS BACKED BY SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

I’ve spent half of my life exploring ways to become better and maintain a high level of performance, fitness, and happiness, with as little thought as possible.  However, this isn’t enough.

Every aspect of the 75 Strong challenge has been researched, and confirmed, backed by peer reviewed, scientific research to lead to the outcomes we desire. 

In the back of the book, you will find countless peer reviewed scientific research studies cited as the scientifically proven foundations of this book.
