Are you ready to rally and put your strength to the ultimate test? Stellar iFit members Stephanie Rangel and Diane Hood are hiking the entire Grand Canyon Series with iFit Trainer John Peel in ONE day—and they’re challenging other iFit community members to join them!
Stephanie and Diane will be embarking on their journey on Monday, July 8! However, this virtual personal challenge can be completed anytime between July 8 and July 22.
“Why did I decide to do this? It’s kind of funny,” explained Stephanie on how the idea came about, “I had just finished [the Grand Canyon series] for a second time, so I posted on the iFit Member Facebook page that one of these days, I was going to start early and do the entire series in one day—just like John Peel did when the series was filmed.”
At this time, Stephanie reached out to her good friend Diane Hood, where they decided they could both hike the series on July 8. She “met” Diane while she was struggling through Tommy Rivers Puzey’s Iberian Running Series for beginners. Diane, a seasoned runner, offered Stephanie the support and encouragement she needed during her struggles.
When they posted about the challenge in the community, many other iFit members jumped on the thread to support and motivate each other to take on this endeavor.
“I have been spending more time on my treadmill every day,” Stephanie described when it comes to preparing for the big day. “I’ve been keeping up with some inclines and trying not to overdo it. I’ve never done anything like this.”
