What is the Challenge?
…To keep going. and record the physical and mental improvement the participants feel as the pilot continues.
Unlike many fitness challenges, our project does not focus on how many calories, pounds or dress sizes the participant drops. Instead, it focuses on how the commitment to improve and increase physical movement makes us better mothers, partners, and community members.
By removing the pressure of losing “weight”, we are increasing the likely-hood of community members re-investing in their health for the long haul.
How Will You Measure Success?
That is up to each individual participant!
Through various multimedia storytelling techniques including photo’s videos and blog posts, participants will be able to share their triumphs with you.
We are confident that the combination of group physical fitness and healthy food from the farm, we can measurably improve the quality of life for our participants!
