Awesome site, these medals are absolutely amazing and have given me the insensitive to keep active, the group is amazing too , so much encouragement and support.,
Big thank you to Yoel for starting off this site all he does.
I started these challenges in January and now I have my 5 year old getting active too. Gives such a sense if achievement and helps me stay focused. The fb group is full of inspirational people who are all eager to egg each other on. I cant wait to get started on my next challenge
I started doing a medal at a time from 6th Jan 2021 and haveng looked back! The medals keep me focused and on target. Yoel, the founder is great and does everything! Medals come super fast too which I love! The only thing i will say is, I'd like to see more long distance medals available.
I only started running May 2020 and have used the virtual runs as something to aim for - a lovely reward at the end of a challenge. My daughter and I have run ‘smile & wave’, ‘running in the rain’ and a few others. The medals are fabulous as is the support and friendliness from Yoel. Fantastic service all round ????
I recently signed up to participate in a few of the ICM virtual races that I anticipate on completing soon. The fitness industry is attracting more and more people each year as a way to remain fit and do something positive. Yoel is a first class individual with a top-notch attitude who is always there to encourage and support you throughout the journey. Thank you so much my friend. ????
Have finished both the Smile and Wave challenge and the Covid 19 miles, before the end of the year. Fantastic support from the community and Yoel himself. Medals and orders arrive promptly after the submission of evidence.
Feedback by e-mail and FB page is great. Took part in Smile and wave challenge. Received t-shirt really quick. Just finished challenge this week so now waiting for my medal which will come as promised.
I love the challenges. Only problem I have is choosing which one I´ll do next ???? Can´t do them all.
I Challenge Myself has something for everyone, from hard core events with long distances to shorter ones covering all age groups and abilities. They have a point of difference to many others by with wellness type challenges that covers an all round heath appeal.
Well done to Yoel for giving the world this opportunity to better themselves.
Having personal goals this year has kept me going and having tried a number of different individual race / challenge sites, I found I challenge myself has a really nice collection of medals that are a bit quirky and gives you the incentive to complete the challenge. High quality medals too.
I’m new to I Challenge Myself but have done several other virtual challenges during lockdown. I’m very impressed with ICM so far for all the interaction, motivation and support on social media which is so important, especially at this weird time. I’m signed up to two challenges, the first being the Reindeer Run, and look forward to receiving my medal.
I challenge myself is one of the best virtual challenge companies out there ... Value for money .. helpfll...inventive ... Motivational but most of all .. inclusive ... No time constraints, no pressure, you choose your schedule. You chose your method .. walk run cycle swim .. steps count etc etc ... Al this ran by a very calm inspired young man
If you want a sympathetic start to your fitness goals .. this is the one for you ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Excellent challenge, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Knowing that I would get a medal was incentive to keep my daily target of reading each day. It's got me back into a routine, which I'm continuing with, even after the challenge. The Wellness medal is better than I expected - fantastic quality and size. Thanks Yoel for this challenge x
I ordered the COVID miles challenge for myself and my 10-year old son. We did 19 miles each in a couple of weeks. We love the honey comb medal boards and we’re now competing as to whose wall will be covered first. It’s been a tough year but we are at least healthy enough to run our way through it.
Due to the COVID-19, I can't join the real half-marathon races. So I didn't running for eight month. Until I met "I Challenge Myself" on facebook, their virtual challenges and fabulous medals motivated me to pick up outside running again. Yesterday, I received the medals for the completed challenges in my mailbox. This is my first time to get the virtual challenges medals in my life. I'm so happy and I much appreciate the efficiency in medals shipping. I will keep running and join the virtual challenges at "I challenge Myself" again.
I have thoroughly enjoyed doing my first "I Challenge Myself" virtual challenge. It all began due to the Covid19 lockdown and I really wanted to find a way for breaking the monotony of being indoors. I found the website on Facebook and signed up for my first challenge. I was hooked. I'm now looking to do my next one and increase my fitness levels with the medal being the carrot that keeps me going.
I've done a few of these challenges & have others on the go. Having these challenges really inspire me to run, even on the days I can't be bothered. The quality of the medals is really good. Great communication & support from I Challenge Myself.
I've completed my first challenge and feel absolutely great that its given me a buzz to carry on with a few more challenges. Keeping fit and healthy has been a key goal of mine but the lockdown has made that extremely difficult.
I intend to keep going with my fitness regime.
Finding these challenges during lockdown/pandemic has been a god send.
Not only have I found my love for running but mentally physically it's challenged me to do what I otherwise would not have,focus and drive...health is wealth ????????????????????????
Outstanding company, I ordered a few medal holders and Yoel contacted me first, to let me know of a delay. Cannot rate customer service highly enough. Looking forward to booking on to my first virtual race with "I challenge myself"
Such a creative way to displaying the medals. Lights up the room. Everyone is amased at the display when they walk into the house. It also displays my hard work and efforts. Would recommend this product
So helpful, supportive, medals are amazing. Communication is fantastic, always responds to messages with so much encouragement. Seen other people doing challenges with medals but I will always stay with I challenge myself
I Challenge Myself is amazing! I wanted to do a Covid-19 run that didn't just have a picture of toilet paper on it like many of the American runs I found. Not only is this medal beautiful, it is so much bigger than I expected it to be and arrived in New Zealand in super quick time. I highly recommend I Challenge Myself to everyone out there who runs for pleasure as well as beautiful medals to treasure always :-)
Such a great idea to encourage people during this difficult time. It is a very personal experience with plenty of interaction with Yoel who founded it, these challenges differ from others as they also contain ideas to improve your mental health as well as physical.
I'm delighted to have found such a lovey group ????
Keeps you focused and you feel challenged to complete them as a goal not just for your self but also your furry friend can do some to!.
Yoel is very friendly to and the medals you recieve are awesome/pawsome!!
Myself and a friend challenged ourselves to run 100 miles during July. With it being a decent achievement we felt we should reward ourselves upon looking around nothing had quite caught our eye, and then I spotted the little plastercene man trophies - adorable! Sadly these did not come in a 100 miles variety, and I commented on the post to this effect. Yoel messaged me almost instantly to confirm he could personalise them for me no problem! Not only did he do that, but he was able to personalise and post said trophies to me in record time - I was super impressed! The trophies proudly came with us as we ended our months challenge with a (socially distanced) run followed by trophy awarding ????????
Who doesn’t love a medal eh?!
So when I saw the Covid-19 one I was motivated to get out and run the 19 miles as soon as I could. It wasn’t the time I had hoped for and wasn’t without its frustrations but I was pleased to have completed the mileage.
Thanks Yoel, and hopefully lots more people will be motivated in the same way as me! X
