Fall has arrived. The leaves change colors and eventually fall to the ground. The sweatpants and hoodies come out of the drawers and closets. The bars and knees start to bend. #squatober is in full bloom. Nothing better than testing the mind, body, and spirit with a 27 day knee bending roller coaster ride that delivers a big squat and more importantly a new big outlook on life.
#squatober is not a one or two day challenge. No folks, it is a journey. A daily programmed knee bending regime that welcomes all who want to party. The 2017 campaign had participation from all over the globe including 6 out of 7 continents. (C’mon Antarctica, get with it)
Is the plan easy? Absolutely not, but it is highly doable. Start throwing your excuses in the trash can now. The planned routine has its highs and lows just like life, but with it we get to all go through this month together. You literally have thousands of others who are there to spot you. We all have one another’s back for an entire month.

How Do I Participate?
The weight won’t lift itself. You have to get in the trenches and discover a things about yourself that you never knew. Get a partner or two (or five), lock arms, and embrace the journey.
