The goal of Fort HealthCare community challenges is to offer an opportunity to improve overall health and well-being by encouraging individuals to get moving, eat healthfully, and increase quality of life. For 2023, we’re taking our challenge goals a step further and will be including weekly information and different opportunities around the theme “Fall into Wellness-Building Healthy Habits”.
Sign up for the challenge will open on Tuesday August 15th and will be available through Monday September 11th at 11:59 PM.
Experts recommend at least 150 minutes – that’s just over 20 minutes per day – of moderately intense physical activity each week. That’s the minimum amount of time that you need to log online in order to stay in the challenge and compete for great prizes!
Some participants continue with their existing workout routines, some just boost their current ones, and some people decide it’s time to begin! Whatever your current fitness level, you can participate doing something that you enjoy – swim, walk, paddle, bike, jog, run, weight lift, row, aerobics, gardening, the list goes on. Just keep track of your activity to stay in the game! We will also share an educational article and have you take a short survey each week to help you stay motivated and engaged.
Increasing your level of physical activity also helps pave the way for feeling great! Lose weight and gain muscle mass, keep your immune system strong, increase your metabolism; change your lifestyle habits to include starting and sticking with a regular exercise program; be a part of a healthy community, and inspire others to move more!
All tasks will open on Tuesdays and must be entered online/completed by Monday evenings by 11:59pm in order to be eligible for the weekly and grand prizes. Winners will be announced by October 24th.
