Dexter, Missouri - The Regional Healthcare Foundation will once again sponsor the "TRI" Team Fitness Challenge! This is the 10th year the Fitness Challenge has been in existence and is quite popular with the community.
The main focus of people who participate is to improve their health. People are very conscious that diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure are on the rise in our area. The Fitness Challenge offers weekly accountability for weight loss. Team support serves as a reinforcement for shedding those unwanted pounds.
The 2017 TRI Team Fitness Challenge will begin on Wednesday, January 11th and continue until Wednesday, April 26th.
Teams may sign up for the Challenge on January 11th, 18th or the 25th. Teams will consist of 3 people and each team must have a creative name ready at time of sign-up. Individuals who do not have a team can still sign up and will be combined into teams of three.
Each week handouts will be provided about health and nutrition. Blood pressure checks will be made at the beginning of the Challenge and then at the end of the Challenge for comparison
Many people enjoy the holidays and all the fine dining and special treats knowing they will get serious about losing those extra holiday pounds by participating in the Fitness Challenge!
