Be Fit For Life Wellness Challenge

The Be Fit For Life Wellness Challenge is a 4 month (January-April) initiative among local businesses or groups of 10-20 adults to increase their level of physical activity and overall fitness levels during the winter months. Each month includes a main fitness event and other activities to gain points based on the team’s participation level. The main goal of each team is to obtain the maximum amount of participation from the entire team. Team captain meetings are held every September/October. For more information, contact 440-350-4512.

It is a proven fact that walking is one of the best types of exercise to improve your health. The national recommendation is that you walk 10,000 steps or the equivalent daily. The fee for this program includes a pedometer, a calendar with programs and walking opportunities, a list of step equivalents and a steps log. After you join, you will receive the Healthy Steps newsletter and a new step log every three months. For more information or to register, call 440-953-6000.
