Freeletics 10x METIS Challenge

Well, I decided today was going to be my x10 METIS challenge day. At the end of 2014 many of the free-athletes started to take things to the next level after experiencing HELLWEEKS (typically week 7 and week 15) and x10 was introduced. During Christmas week, I was flat out getting through, not only working out during the festive period, but actually completing double sessions as it was my final week, week 15 and a HELLWEEK to boot! My aim was to make time for x10 METIS and Saturday 14 February the day, along with Richard over at Freeletics London. My boy, JJ (he’s 9) had started Freeletics in the week and asked if he could join me in x2 METIS, I was happy that he wanted to get involved. The METIS workout is as follows with my official time(s).

After the first round, my heart was pumping, 9 more to go. I started to feel tired during the second METIS. Another one down, getting harder and slower, meanwhile JJ is steaming ahead. Oh how it must feel to be young and full of NRG! Third METIS and JJ continuous to support me, pushing past his initial x2 goal. Fourth METIS and I’m feeling the burn. JJ’s joining me for 5 now as he said he’s on FIRE go JJ! By my sixth METIS, I actually feel like it’s now possible to complete this challenge. With Daft Punk playing, I’m at a steady pace and with three more to go, I decide not to go above 10 minutes. I feel this is possible, ok +04:54 vs PB (which I don’t know how I achieved this, a moment of madness no doubt!). 10/10 METIS! BOOM smashed this challenge and now in the x10_club,  feeling so so good about this. Started off with minimal energy and I just grew throughout this workout. I would like to thank my boy, JJ for supporting me throughout the first x5 METIS, not bad for a 9yr old nipper. Love you boy! This picture below was the aftermath of my camping #workout mat. Time for a new one me thinks. Food, protein and water. Have a fab afternoon my Freeletcis family and remember #noexcuses and #nevergiveup.



About makthefreeathlete

In January 2014 I was overweight (177cm/116kg) and unhappy with my lifestyle. I decided to do something about it. Get fit, loose weight and improve the quality of my life. I hope this blog helps to and inspires other to make to make that life changing decision. It's not easy, but it's more than doable and the rewards are priceless. If there is one piece of advice I would offer is that; "It's never too late to make a change, anything is possible if you want it bad enough. Dream, believe, work like a maniac, achieve." - #noexcuses

    • Thank you @rkk76, appreciate your feedback. Really impressed that you also took the challenge and completed it, same day! I am loving the Freeletcis London group, it’s growing daily and by the spring/summer warmer weather, everyone will be at it, getting fit and growing strong together. Awesome respect to you guys and well done @rkk76 for smashing METIX x10 challenge too #clapclap. My boy wants to do more today, although I’m still a little sore if I’m honest 😉

    Amazed with this video. I can tell you Mark I had great fun watching this. Great video, great editing, great performances. You are top man 💪💪💪


    • Thank you for your comment Eduardo and really glad you liked the video. I love to film everything and have been filming my journey of fitness since 6 January 2014 when I first started to get fit and was 256lb/116kg. I just knew I had to make a lifestyle change and although 2014 was a hard year, it was very rewarding to finally be moving again. I’ve always been active, but with work and family, life had got in the way and it was time for serious changes. Here I am, 59 weeks later, looking for crazy challenges with my Freeletics family, I feel completely different and even my kids are joining me on my journey. I am also blown away with your training Eduardo, you really are going for some serious #ironman training, which is inspiring me and many others to push themselves to the limits and beyond. Here’s to a happier and healthier future my friend. #clapclap


  3. Hey Mark, congrats for rockin this challenge!
    Very nice. Greets from Germany! #staystrong


    • Hey Marc, really glad you liked this challenge mate and thank you for the greetings from Germany, the homeland of Freeletics 😉 I will indeed continue to grow strong and of course push myself and others around me to continue to make progress. I think I’ve linked up with you on the app, although there are many Marc Hoffmann’s, I’m assuming your the most active one on there with 5 workouts, last one – APHRODITE completed on 15/2/15. #noexcuses and remember #nevergiveup #clapclap
