Let's Get Physical!

The weather is getting warmer and it's time to get active! As an extension of our 'Hearty Challenge' from February - we are dedicating this entire month of March to good health! Our challenge is simple, we want you to challenge yourself to living and maintaining a healthier lifestyle!

The Challenge Overview!

Everyone in Snap Land has a different level of physical ability, so the first thing we want to make note of is, we do not expect you all to become Olympic Athletes. Rather, for those who are interested; take tiny steps and make small changes in your everyday life to improve upon your health and well being.

For some that may mean changing their diet, others it may mean getting more active. Whether the activity is in the form of walking, running, small weight lifting, stretching or anything else - the choice is yours. It's up to you to determine what you're comfortable and capable of doing. As always, check with your doctor before beginning any new physical or dietary regimen if you have any health concerns.

Each week we will celebrate one of the four main elements of life; Earth, Wind, Fire and Water! We will take the core of our existence and work with you to better our eating habits, breathing techniques, improve blood pressure and of course - stay hydrated!

The Specifics!

Each week you will have a Fitness Challenge and a Song Challenge. Please read carefully below for a break-down of each!

Fitness Challenge: Each week, we are challenging you to increase your level of fitness by at least 5 minutes, 3-5 times a week.

If you do not do any physical activity at all, your starting goal will be five minutes a day, 3-5 times a week! The physical activity you choose is your decision. If you need help coming up with some 'chair-friendly' exercises, please read below!

If you already exercise, we want you to quite simply add 5 extra minutes a week onto your existing routine (Or a any number of minutes you're comfortable with)

Getting Started: To get started, you need to simply join us on Friday, March 2nd - sing a song and say that you're going to March Through March! (A thread will be posted at a later date with the specific challenge criteria - Stay Tuned!)

Week Two Fitness Challenge: Five additional minutes of fitness, completing a physical activity of your choice. Walking, Running, Stretching, Muscle Training, etc., The goal is to do this 3-5 times a week (Or more if you're willing)

Week Three Fitness Challenge: Ten additional minutes of fitness;

Week Four Fitness Challenge: Fifteen additional minutes of fitness;

Week Five Fitness Challenge: Twenty additional minutes of fitness;

The end goal is that you are exercising 20 more minutes a day (3-5 days a week) than you were before this challenge started!

Song Challenge: Every Friday in March, you will join us and sing a song! In your song comment section - share your journey! Your highs, your lows - your success - anything at all! Pictures, stories or just document that you've done the required amount of exercise for the week! (Or that you plan to finish by the Weeks end)

We will announce the 'theme' a couple days before each Song Challenge (Around Tues/Wed). We will also supply healthy eating tips pertaining to that week's theme, exercise hints and especially encouragement in every week! We want you to succeed and we'll do whatever we can to help!
