2017 Healthy Heart Challenge

This year’s Healthy Heart Challenge has been updated and slightly changed. This year’s challenge will follow a point system instead of tracking miles. Just as in previous years, point sheets will be submitted at the front desk at the end of each week. All participants receive a shirt for participation as well as the remainder of fee going to the American Heart Association The totals will be updated every Monday morning by our Front Desk staff. The challenge will span 12 weeks from January 16th—April 9th. The points are earned based on both the time of exercise and the intensity of exercise. Points will allow you to also incorporate strength training programs into the challenge instead of tracking mileage.
