After the 2012 challenge, Dream Team member Nichole of Nevada, Iowa said, “I have lost a total of 48 pounds since the first meeting we had in January. I feel so much better! I have motivated a lot of people around me as well. I never thought that I would have the success that I had and accomplish so many things.”
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! The Live Healthy Iowa Dream Team members will also be provided with assessments, nutrition education, physical activity education, a motivating team captain, waived 10 Week Wellness Challenge fee and more. Dream Team members and the team captain will communicate regularly through the Live Healthy Iowa team message board and there will be a minimum of three Dream Team meetings held in central Iowa.
Live Healthy Iowa’s 10 Week Wellness Challenge brings together friends, family and co-workers in teams of 2-10 people to make healthy lifestyles changes. Participants track activity minutes and/or weight loss through the Live Healthy Iowa website. Team members and the team captain inspire each other to go the extra mile while in friendly competition with other Iowa teams.
