Event Details

  • This event is hosted by the Healthful Living Group, but anyone can participate! The challenge is to exercise for at least 30 mins a day for the month. We are all at different levels of health, so there's no specific program, but let's shoot for something at least moderately challenging. We can encourage each other and help each other with ideas for a stronger 2016!

    Ross Jones:
    Hurt my knee at the polar plunge yesterday and the doc wants me to rest it for a few days so I am limited on what exercises I can do. Praying the pain subsides otherwise it could be a torn  meniscus. One step forward, two steps back only make me stronger.

      Ross Jones I could find something. It would depend on what you would want to work on. Legs, arms, core etc. The challenges do not take long, 5-10 minutes or so. They are fun to do and you can see your progress from day one to day thirty. Also, most can be modified...  more

      Sylvia Todd I think I would be interested in some upper body work, something that doesn't require equipment, 'cause we don't have any Maybe the pushup challenge would be good! To be honest, I have never looked specifically into core work or what it's about, so will...  more
