Rite of Passage Challenge - A test of Grit

Ready to test your grit?

The right of passage challenge:   From the list of the six rite of passage tests listed below, you will choose five to complete back to back (as prescribed) in whatever order you choose.    

The rite of passage challenge was born about 2 years ago after the KORE staff lost a scavenger hunt and the KORE members who won were allowed to decide what workout the KORE trainers would do.   The two things they were deciding between were a 90 minute session of Hot yoga or all of the right of passage workouts in one day. 90 minute yoga won out but the idea of all of the rite of passage workouts in one day stuck with me.  Let me take a step back and explain the rite of passage workouts.

Each rite of passage challenges are a test of a combination of your abilities in fundamental skills and your strength/ fitness levels.  Most of these challenges (5 out of 6) involve kettlebells because that’s our primary tool for strength building at KORE but all of these challenges require that you have good form and a high level of fitness.  We wanted these tests to be measuring sticks for our members to use so they could compare where they were to a standard of where they should ultimately want to be.

Generally we present these challenges once a quarter to give everyone an opportunity to see not only where they are, but how they have improved from the last time they did that challenge.  

The idea however, for the rite of passage challenge, is to go beyond fundamental skill and fitness and test the five major components of Grit: courage, conscientiousness, follow through, resilience, and excellence.  You’ll be developing all of these skills as you train to put yourself to the test on May 5th if you accept this challenge.
