Live Healthy Iowa is beginning the hunt for the 2013 Dream Team to participate in the 10 Week Wellness Challenge. Dream Team members will be selected through an application process and will be highlighted throughout the Challenge. The 10 Week Wellness Challenge begins Jan. 28 and ends April 5.
Live Healthy Iowa’s 10 Week Wellness Challenge encourages teams of 2-10 Iowans to make positive lifestyles changes through tracking activity minutes and/or weight loss. Team members and the team captain inspire each other to go the extra mile while in friendly competition with other Iowa teams.
Live Healthy Iowa will spotlight up to 10 participants, the Dream Team, throughout their journey in the 10 Week Wellness Challenge. The Live Healthy Iowa Dream Team will be provided with additional resources, such as assessments, nutrition education, physical activity education and a waived challenge fee. The Dream Team will share their struggles, strategies and successes to show Iowa the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle and that anyone can achieve wellness!
In addition to Dream Team members, Live Healthy Iowa’s search for the Dream Team captain will continue through Oct. 5. The preferred team captain is a Certified Personal Trainer and will be actively engaged with the Dream Team members. The team captain’s duties include providing consultations, exercise routines and serving as a wellness resource.
