Kick-off your Couples Weight Loss Challenge with an awesome couples workout challenge invitation. You could choose to do this as just a couple. However, you might consider inviting friends and family to join the challenge. After all, the more the merrier! Determine the starting date and the ending date (this is designed to be an 8-week challenge) and fill that info in on your invite. After that, send out this cute invitation, to other couples or just to your spouse.

Pre Weight Loss Challenge Ideas & Goal Sheet

We’ve included TWO amazing goal sheets to help you get the most you can out of this couple’s fitness challenge. For example, one is a Pre-Challenge goal sheet where you’ll discuss your weight loss challenge ideas and plans. Subsequently, the other is a Challenge Review where you’ll reflect on the past 8 weeks of your couple’s workout challenge. Begin the challenge by sitting down and evaluating your goals on the Pre-Challenge Goals sheet. Be sure and record your starting weight at the top. After that, make sure to write down any concerns or ideas you may have. These steps are super important so don’t skip them!

Fun Weight Loss Chart & Calendar

Once you’ve laid the groundwork for your challenge, it’s time to get going! You’ll want to make sure you have a reliable scale or tape measure to keep track of your progress. Additionally, everyone participating needs their own copy of the printable fitness calendar (which you can also use a fun weight loss chart!). Use it to map out what type of physical activity you will complete each day as well as any notes. It’s important to keep track of all of the little success along the way! Moreover, if you’re looking for some great at-home workouts, be sure and check out our list of 101 of the Best YouTube Workout Videos.

Inspirational Couples Weight Loss Notes

To help support your spouse (and all involved) during the challenge, we’ve added some adorable, supportive notes for a little boost of encouragement during your 8 weeks. Pass one off to your spouse after a difficult weigh-in, attach one to a water bottle for motivation, leave one in your spouse’s lunch, or tape it to the fridge to remind yourself when late-night temptation comes your way! We promise they’ll add the perfect motivational boost.

I'm a friendly gal who's obsessed with all things marriage and Hubby-related :). When I'm not having adventures with my sweetheart and baby boy, you can find me in photographer mode, deep in a Netflix binge, or crafting! I also enjoy treasure hunting (aka. thrifting), dark chocolate, and eating as much sushi as possible.
