with the program through the entire summer, remote members will ONLY need to participate for TWO WEEKS. We don't want to take much of your time, and your involvement means a lot to each team member. Knowing others are doing the same work their doing inspires them to stick with their ritual.
What do I get for participating in #thegiveteam15?
Pride. After all, you'll be part of the ONLY inner-city OCR team in the country focused on building strength, leadership skills and goal achievement with military-inspired leadership principles and concepts rooted in Stoic philosophy.
Strength. This workout is no joke, and you WILL get stronger. Just keep telling yourself, "It's ONLY 15 minutes."
Purpose. You’ll be providing motivation to a group of guys living in a neighborhood named one of America’s most dangerous. If you've had an opportunity to meet the team, you understand this part deep in your soul.
How much does it COST to participate in #thegiveteam15?
Fifteen minutes of your day for fifteen days. That’s it. Perhaps a piece of your soul during every workout if you push yourself, but that’s up to you. No money.

What are the RULES for PARTICIPATION?
Where did the idea for #thegiveteam15 come from?
The routine is modeled after a fitness program I followed last year while training to climb Mt. Rainier. It was very effective. It's designed to be done ANYWHERE without equipment, and will energize ANYONE for the day.
The idea of the “ritual” came from Give Team Motto 05: Life is nothing but a series of habits and experiences, so make your habits intentional and your experiences amazing.
Greatness happens in the small things done consistently, with focus and with purpose. To that end, we need to be MINDFUL of our habits, and align them with our goals. The beauty of a physical goal is there is nothing more honest. If you put in the work, you get the results.
Alright already. What are the exercises in #thegiveteam15 program?
As stated earlier, the routine is to perform each exercise for 45 seconds followed by 15 seconds of rest.
A description of some of the exercises is provided below. If you have questions about how to perform these, look them up on YouTube, or you can ask in the comments below.
Don’t forget to post your pic and if on Instagram, tag #thegiveteam15.
Remember the central Give Team Motto: No matter how little you have, you ALWAYS have something to give. BE STRONG! GIVE MORE!
Thanks for playing!
