Ep. 206 - The Big Willie Challenge

On May 2nd, Will Smith broke the Internet when he posted a picture of himself looking a little less than his normal self. In a flamboyant “belly out” pose with a pair of boxers, slippers and unzipped windbreaker, he captioned it.” This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing thru the pantry. I love this body, but I wanna FEEL better. No more midnight muffins… this is it! Imma get in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!!!!!”Off the back of this, he started something new: The #BigWillieChallenge. The rules are simple:

Post a picture of your body now

Take 12 weeks to get into the shape of your life

Post a picture of your body after

The challenge has sparked a craze amongst a number of rappers, musicians and male celebrities in Will Smith’s circles, and it’s a fantastic message, incentive and movement to be pushing out there on such a wide platform. There are probably thousands, if not millions, of people who may be on this challenge, so we thought we’d put together a podcast and a guide, which you can find in the show notes, on how to maximize the #BigWillieChallenge so you not only get into the shape of your life, but you set yourself up to stay there for life. It includes the full set up of a transformation checklist, how to make changes, and why mastering the tip of the mountain of this challenge will be the most critical component to it.
