If you’ve made a firm resolution to increase your fitness this year, the Nelson Star Get Fit Challenge may be the thing for you.
The third annual challenge is looking for individuals wanting to achieve the goal of greater health through fitness. The Nelson Star has partnered with local fitness centres which will offer six weeks of free training for each selected candidate as part of an overall effort to promote fitness and well being.
The benefits are up to the participants. To begin, the participants will define their goal and will be paired with a facility that will best fit achieving that fitness goal. Whether it be strength training, endurance, weight loss, or general health, there are variety of options to create a fitting routine.
Participants will be asked to set their own personal goals and they can extend beyond weight loss.
Simply increasing strength or finding more energy for their day was something last year’s challengers set as objectives.
The Star will follow participants’ progress to let readers know how the Get Fit Challenge is impacting their lives.
Anyone interested in participating in the Get Fit Challenge can enter at nelsonstar.com under the contest tab in the top right hand corner.
Tell us your name, age, fitness goals for the challenge and why you want to get fit. The deadline for entries is Monday, January 12.
