Lose Weight, Win Prizes by Joining FIT Family Challenge


The New Year started off with plenty of resolutions – more exercise, eating healthier, more family time or maybe a commitment for more self-care.

We want to encourage you to keep up with those resolutions, and take them even further with our Fit Family Challenge.

The Fit Family Challenge is an eight-week, community-wide health initiative that runs May 1-June 26.

Participants earn points while tracking their progress online and becoming eligible for weekly prizes, a halfway-point prize and a Grand Prize awarded to one lucky family at the end of the Challenge.

Previous grand prizes included a trip for four to Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.

The eight-week Challenge also features:

• Two Spotlight Families

During the Challenge, we will chronicle the progress of two Spotlight Families.

These families will be paired with a personal trainer, nutrition expert and a life coach – all at no expense to them.

The experts will meet regularly with the families for eight weeks and help them meet their fitness goals.

To be considered as a Spotlight Family, simply visit www.myfitfamilychallenge.com and click “Learn More” or call 223-1765.

The two families will be announced in the April issue of the magazine.

• FREE Fitness Classes

Throughout the Challenge, community partners like the YMCA will offer free classes to Challenge participants.

 We will set up and publish a calendar of those free classes to make them easy to find.

• Fitness Tips

We will provide editorial content in the magazine and on our web site (www.lexingtonfamily.com) with a health and fitness focus – from meal prep ideas to exercise tips from experts.

• Weekly Prizes

Giveaways will include Fitbits, gift cards, event tickets, cookbooks, fresh produce from local farms and more.

Registration for the Challenge will begin April 1.

You also can sign up at our 14th annual Summer Camp & Activities Fair on Saturday, April 9, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Lexington Christian Academy at 450 W. Reynolds Rd.

Those who register at the Camp Fair will be automatically entered in a drawing for a gift basket featuring skin care and other pamper-me products  plus gift cards to events, restaurants, nail salons and more.
