Are you starting to feel that New Year's buzz and looking for new ways to get inspired? Meghan McNab has you covered. The badass mom and fitness enthusiast will motivate you to crush your resolutions right off the bat and here's why.

Over the weekend, one of McNab's trainers, Shawn Booth (owner of BOOTHCAMP Gym in Nashville, who you may recognize from The Bachelorette), took to Instagram to share how she completed a killer workout challenge so hard that it was designed to be pretty much impossible.

"Our coaches created a workout with the intention that nobody would finish it. We made it insanely difficult and wanted to see who could get the furthest through it," Booth wrote on Instagram alongside a series of videos of McNab sweating it out. "The challenge included 1,875 reps of all different exercises." (Related: Fit Moms Share the Relatable and Realistic Ways They Make Time for Workouts)

While that sounds tough as it is, Booth revealed that in order to even start the challenge, you had to complete a "buy-in" of 50 burpees, 50 push-ups, 50 wall balls, and 1 mile on the bike. Then for the challenge itself: 25 slam balls, 50 burpees, 75 wall balls, 100 single-arm kettlebell deadlifts, 125 rope slams, 150 lunge jumps, 175 goblet squats, 200 skiers on a bench, 225 mountain climbers, 250 Russian twists, and 500 jump ropes-which you can watch her power through in Booth's post below.

About 50 people participated in the challenge, and McNab was the only one to make it to the end. "This badass mom KILLED it," Booth wrote. "She was the only one of about 50 people yesterday to get it done." (Related: This Mom Has a Message for People Who Shame Her for Working Out)

As the clock ticked down, McNab's husband and her 4-year-old daughter, Sloane, cheered from the sidelines. At one point, Sloane even got down and hugged her mom as she did some toe-touches with a kettlebell in hand, per Booth's Instagram Stories.

"For me, it was the greatest moment we've had at Booth Camp Gym," wrote Booth, before sharing that McNab had actually run 4.5 miles before crushing every single rep. If that doesn't inspire you-if not to try the challenge, then at least to get your butt to the gym this holiday season-then nothing will.

Did you know that a study from Stanford University revealed that habitual runners got fatter with every passing year? Very few people realize that exercising too much can be counter-productive. Short workouts of around 21 minutes can give you all the weight loss benefits of longer workouts without the negative side effects. Long workouts increase the levels of the stress hormone cortisol in your body, which actually force your body to go into “protection mode” and makes it store fat. These unique bodyweight exercises will give you all the weight loss you desire https://bit.ly/bodyweightburnnow

Est ipsum ipsum accusamus aut at et aperiam. 💖 Ever heard of the Keto diet? I started using the advice at WWW.KETOCOOKBOOK.ORG and lost 25 pounds of fat in a month! I’ve never lost weight so fast!! The Keto Diet really is amazing because it forces the body to always burn fat for energy — so you lose the fat and keep it off. If you want to lose some weight, I highly recommend using that website :) Check it out! Best of luck to you! 💖

I purchased these to replace my expensive headphones until I could repair them. Found, to my surprise, that they were more comfortable and have better audio quality. I'm partially deaf and spend a lot of time watching videos on my computer. Using these headphones blocks outside noises for me and allows me to listen at a higher volume... check more products here .... http://boseworkout.com

I have always been what most would consider a “big girl”. In January 2018, I weighed 180 lbs, which is quite overweight for a woman my height. I wasn’t always this weight though. In my teenage years, I weighed only 140 pounds and I felt much healthier and happier. I strived desperately over the years to get back to this weight. But with a stressful and busy work life, I struggled... continue here https://bit.ly/mydietplantoday
