30-day Core Challenge

This program will guide you through a progression of skills to create more than just core strength – you will also develop awareness, coordination, and control throughout your whole body! The challenge format is helpful because it encourages you to focus on how you’re moving and interacting with the world around you on a daily basis, which helps create new movement patterns and connects you more strongly to yourself and others. You can do your workouts wherever you are (at home, at the gym, on vacation, at the park), and this resource includes so much more than a core routine!

Sign ups for the Core Challenge happen for specific launch times, so subscribe to our newsletter to hear about the next one!

How the Challenge Works

This is a 30-day challenge that starts June 1st, with weekly on-demand and live Zoom core classes. While you are moving through the challenge, we are available to support you!  

Day 1 of the challenge will be June 1st. Sign up now and start your goal setting, plan out your schedule, and watch the core clinic!


There are 4 Lessons in the core challenge, each approximately 60 minutes long.  The first lesson opens on June 1st, then the subsequent lessons will unlock, or become available, each week on Tuesday. It is important to practice the content in order, as the skills build upon themselves.

Daily Practice

There are 5 Focus Exercises built into the Core Lessons. These are the exercises that need to be practiced in order to help you progress to the next lesson. Each day, plan on spending 5-60 minutes for daily practice; it takes an hour to do a core lesson or Zoom class, and 5-15 minutes to work on focus exercises. You choose what you want to do every day, depending on how much time you have and making sure to build in rest days.

Zoom Core Classes

At Strive & Uplift, we are committed to making sure that all people, regardless of their means, can be a part of our community! This means removing barriers like cost together so everyone can easily and sustainably access our services and resources. At the same time, we want to ensure our coaches are properly compensated for their labor and can have a good quality of life. That’s why we use a sliding scale – to remove barriers and care for each other!

This challenge is offered with flexible pricing so you can set the right price according to your access to resources. Everyone deserves access to high-quality movement education and support, and this method of individually setting pricing allows us to use wealth redistribution to provide access to everyone!

How flexible pricing works

How we use resources

We spend our time and money as a business on values-centered projects and member support! The money you pay for the challenge goes to:

Determining what to pay

You can use this chart to help decide what the right price is for you. Everyone’s financial situation is informed by the interactions between income, wealth, debt, and varying costs of basic living expenses. Consider where you fall in each of the categories presented to determine your overall financial position.

This chart is presented solely as a guide to help you decide the membership rate that’s best for you. It’s impossible to capture everything, which means you may have specific circumstances that aren’t reflected here. Ultimately, the choice is yours — we’re trying to lower barriers, not put more in your way!
