Welcome to GreatistYou, a new social experiment where we see what happens when five people decide to change their health—and broadcast their journeys for everyone to see. Four goals, five contestants, and six weeks to crush said goals for the promise of a better life (oh, and $1,000!).

Darby and Adrienne (@greatistdanda) are back at it again! Though Darby was sore from SoulCycle last night, that didn’t stop her from going on a run around the neighborhood. She also has two classes planned this weekend: one at The Bar Method and another at Mile High Run Club.

Adrienne is still in D.C. for work, but she isn’t treating the trip like a vacation. She’s been spending a lot of time in the hotel’s fitness center and packed her foam roller and resistance band for some on-the-road physical therapy.


  • Brandon (@greatistbrandon) was seriously tempted by McDonald’s while waiting at the airport but ultimately opted for cheddar cheese and egg whites on a whole-wheat bagel with a side of grapes. Also, quick question: What exactly happened with the sink here to make it your nemesis?
  • Jasmine (@greatistjasmine) posed a question we all want an answer to: Why is there still no bacon emoji? But she shouldn’t let that stop her from incorporating bacon into every single meal.
  • Regina (@greatistregina) is trying her d*mndest to avoid junk food and almost resisted the urge to steal a coworker’s french fry. But hey, french fries might be one of the most difficult foods to say no to.
  • Jessi (@greatistmentor) always knows what to say when things get tough. “Pro tip: Be kind to yourself. Treat yourself with compassion. You don’t need to be mean to be motivated.”
