Spring Training begins Monday, April 21,2014!
Welcome to Spring Training. This year 188 teams are competing with a total of 1435 employees, family members and friends participating simultaneously. This great participation makes Spring Training the most popular program offered by Wellness Options at Work. Last year, every team completed the challenge. Let’s meet that benchmark again this year!
It won’t be easy. Each and every one of us must try every day to incorporate the challenge into our day. Remember, you choose your own activity goal. If you pick an aerobic activity, you can break down your goal into 10 minute increments, as long as you maintain that moderate intensity aerobic activity throughout that 10 minute segment. Try to challenge yourself to improve your overall health. This is a cardiovascular challenge. Many of us forget the importance of exercising our hearts and tuning up our whole vascular system. It is critical to our long term health. Frankly, heart disease is the biggest killer of both men and women. So don’t delay. Get moving. Work together as a team!
Last year we had 12 teams who finished on top with a PERFECT SCORE! They were:
Teri’s Titan’s of Patient Resources, Fitter Critters, The Unsinkables, Team Mustang, Fast Trackers, Road Warriors, Jean’s East Team, Klassy Kidney Kleaners, Practice What you Preach, RX Pain Relievers, We Got Sole and Genrich DiAnne.
Who will claim victory for 2014???
Just the facts, Ma’am:
1. Get started Monday! Plan exercise into your day.
2. Let your captain know by Tuesday noon, April 29th how many days you met your goal for the week of 4/21. (Remember 5 is the max you can report)
3. Start looking for an exercise buddy for the Week 3 challenge.
