The 75 Hard Challenge
The 75 Hard Challenge was developed in 2019 by businessman Andy Frisella, a podcaster, and the CEO of the dietary supplement firm 1st Phorm. According to the program’s website, 75 Hard is more than just an exercise challenge; it’s a “transformative mental toughness training program.”
After speaking with James Lawrence, also known as the Iron Cowboy for finishing 50 Iron Man races in 50 states in 50 days, Frisella created 75 Hard. Frisella was motivated to create 75 Hard when James Lawrence advised him to purposefully put himself in uncomfortable situations to develop mental fortitude.
The rules of the 75 Hard Program
According to the welcome email sent to participants, hard participants must complete the following every day for 75 consecutive weeks.
- Follow a particular diet. Although it is possible to follow a personal diet, it must be a deliberate eating plan with the objective of enhancing your physical health. There is no alcohol or food outside the prescribed diet allowed.
- Finish two sessions of 45 minutes each. One of which should be outside.
- Take a photo of the progress.
- Drink 1 gallon water.
- You can read 10 pages from the book (audiobooks are not included).
Additionally, no changes to the program will be allowed. If you do not meet one day-to-day goals your progress is reset to the next day.
“You may be enticed by the idea of trying to alter your life to make them more your own and your “special style of living” Frisella writes. “But it is the root of every issue you have”, he insists.

If you succeed in finishing the program, it is anticipated that you will be able to read at least 750 pages while sticking to a regular eating schedule, drinking plenty of water, and keeping track of any physical changes through the collecting of daily progress photos.
There are several advantages to following a scheduled health strategy, according to experts. According to Noah Quezada, a registered dietitian and nutritionist from Colorado, “As a dietitian, I’m all in favor of those who pay more focus on their diet and exercise routines. Therefore, this 75 Hard program certainly encourages this.” “One of the biggest advantages to this plan is that it encourages the consistency. To achieve the outcomes you desire from any fitness or health plan, consistency is essential.”
The Mindset Coach Carrie Veatch recently completed the program that she thoroughly enjoyed. Based on her experiences she believes that taking part in 75 Hard will help people get rid of negative thoughts from their lives, as they learn to appreciate the things their bodies and minds can accomplish when they are committed and stick to their commitments.
Kettlebell instructor Sophie Banyard also completed 75 hard, and she stated she found it difficult but possible. “That provided me a lot of knowledge about the things you can do in the course of a day when you are willing to do the assignment,” Banyard says. Banyard acknowledges that the struggle served as the impetus for her decision to completely abstain from alcohol, and she views this as one of the best decisions she has ever made.
