We hope you clipped your pedometers on this morning!
Today is the first day for The Next Step Challenge, encouraging Iowans to team up with family, friends, coworkers and neighbors to work together to achieve wellness. This Challenge runs for six weeks, ending Oct. 19. Registration will remain open through Sept. 21 so if you haven’t rallied your team together yet, it’s not too late! Go to http://www.livehealthyiowa.org and click ‘Join Today!’
Each participant will track their steps using a pedometer and record on their personal online tracking page which will be added to their team total. The online tracking page also includes access to recipes, workouts, and health information. Participants who record weekly will have the opportunity to win team incentives and individual prizes!
Working to make small changes in your life can lead to many health benefits, including lower risk for certain chronic diseases and a greater quality of life. The Next Step challenge provides an easy way to be conscious of your activity level and set goals to increase your time spent moving rather than sedentary. By teaming up with others that have similar goals, you have your very own cheering squad to keep you on track!
Sign up now to begin taking strides toward wellness. Registration fee is $10 per team member; each will receive a Live Healthy Iowa pedometer, weekly motivational emails, and access to a personal tracking page, recipes, workouts and health information.
