Welcome to the #BTWBChallenge


Every other week, we’ll be posting a new challenge for BTWB members to partake in. We don’t have a reason to do this other than the fact that it will be fun. So what’s to lose? Each challenge can vary in difficulty or style of work. You might be competing for the best score, or the first to accomplish a task. We’ll keep it fun and interesting for you guys. For this challenge the top 3 Men and Women + the Raffle winner (we’re going to randomly pick from people who did the challenge) will get to pick FOUR Rogue Shirts of their choosing, plus you’ll receive our limited edition ABC’s of Fitness shirt.
