I Tried the Chloe Ting 2 Weeks Shred Challenge and Almost Gave Up

I Tried the Chloe Ting 2 Weeks Shred Challenge and Almost Gave Up

The coronavirus pandemic made me realize just how much I’ve taken things for granted. I used to workout at Bally Total Fitness 3-4x a week and all of a sudden all gyms were closed. I struggled to find activities that could help me stay fit. I tried Zumba. A few times a week I would go jogging. But these things eventually became boring for me.

Until one morning, I came across the Chloe Ting 2 Weeks Shred Challenge. I actually saw it on YouTube after browsing some online exercises classes.

You’ve probably heard of her. She’s an Australian fitness enthusiast with 22 million followers on this social media platform. She’s also on TikTok and Instagram.

If you’re wondering if the Chloe Ting challenge actually works, then this article is for you. See, I tried the challenge myself for an entire 2 weeks. What I really liked about the workouts is that you don’t need any equipment except for a mat.

Day 1

Day 1 is consist of 2 x 12-minute videos. The workout is easy to follow and there’s a timer set for 30 seconds per movement. Some exercises however were very challenging that I could barely finish the full 30 seconds.

The first video was titled, “Do this Everyday to Lose Weight.” The other 12-minute video was titled, “Get Abs in 2 Weeks.”

Day 2

I woke up feeling slightly sore in my abs. Still I proceeded to do the day 2 challenge. This one’s harder than the exercises from day 1. So basically, I did the same 2 workouts as yesterday plus a 3rd workout.

Day 3

Things seem to be getting harder by the day. Day 3 has a 4-part workout lasting 45 minutes. I did the same two workouts as Day 1 and 2, and did the 3rd workout which focused on exercises for the lower body. Then there’s the 4th workout called “11” Lines which was extremely hard. I could only finish half of it.

Day 4

Day 4 included 3 workouts lasting 35 minutes. As you probably guessed, I woke up today feeling very sore and I actually considered not doing the workout today.  Moreover, doing the same workouts felt a bit boring.

Day 5

No workout today – it’s rest day!

Day 6

This day was another three-part, 35-minute workout. So basically I did the same 2 workouts as I’ve been doing everyday plus a 3rd workout called Lower Body Burn. The workouts seem to be getting easier by now.

Day 7

Day 7 was another 4-part routine, with the first 2 workouts the same as usual. Plus there’s  Tight Core and Arms, as well as 11 Lines. Doing the same exercises was starting to put a strain on my muscles and joints.

Day 8

On the eighth day, I still did the same first 2 workouts. Then Lower Body Burn and an Ariana Grande workout. It was fun actually.

Day 9

Another rest day, yayy!

Day 10

After more than a week of repetitive exercises I thought about quitting. I mean sure it was just 40 minutes or so of exercise a day but it got really frustrating and boring. These were intense workouts that I had to do every day, I was hoping for some variation at least? But I kept going…

Day 11

Day 11 was a shorter session with just 2 workouts – the same one as day 1. I actually breezed through it.

Day 12

I noticed some improvements in my abs – wow! I mean sure it was very sore but it seems to be getting tight. The changes motivated me to pull out my mat and did 4 workouts.

Day 13

I did the Do This EveryDay, Abs in 2 Weeks, and 11 Lines. We’re almost done with the challenge!

Day 14

Aaaand we’ve come to the last day! Same 2 workouts as what I’ve been doing everyday since day 1 plus Tight Core and Arms and Lower Body Burn.

What I liked about the workout videos is that they’re easy to follow and there’s a timer. Chloe actually make the exercises look easy – but they are very challenging. After the 2 week challenge I felt toner and stronger.

Now as for the not-so-good stuff – well tbh there’s nothing inherently bad about the 2 week shred challenge. The only thing I’m complaining about is that there aren’t much variations especially for the high intensity workouts that normal people can’t really do every day for 14 days.

Other than that, Chloe Ting’s workouts are great and they really do work.
