Remember in grade school PE class when you were asked to participate in those physical ability tests to determine your fitness and strength? I clearly remember hanging from the pull up bar, and watching in disbelief as my fellow classmates struggled to reach the top of the rope climb. How can I climb that rope when I cant even get my fingers around it?!
Replace those grueling memories with new happy memories! The National President’s Challenge aims to encourage people of all ages and abilities to find activities they love and to live a healthier lifestyle.
The Challenge is a nationwide call to action for a healthier America. It’s fun and it’s free! All you have to do is be active five days a week for six out of eight weeks, and log your activity.
Setting a goal is the first step in changing your lifestyle and adopting the habit of regular physical activity. Although we are half way through the challenge, its not too late to register. Join our team, Trimwithkim! See the “Are you a Champion?” page on the left of my blog for more info. Or:
