We may have said good-bye to our summer season but that’s no reason to say good-bye to embracing a healthy lifestyle.  The fall season is approaching and there is still time to fall into healthier lifestyle by participating in one of the 12-week fitness challenges listed below!

The Walking and Activity Challenge and the Fall Weight Loss and Health Challenge will give you the accountability and support you need to achieve your weight loss goals.  Participants of these 12-week fitness challenges will begin with an individual fitness assessment and biometric screening.
