Living Fit Columbus [8 week] Winter Fitness Challenge

Our third annual winter challenge kicked off yesterday!  We had a great turnout for the RUN+YOGA event we helped put together @ Bend Active, with several of our Living Fit Run Club runners…

The eight week challenge helps us all stay motivated and accountable during the winter months, when outdoor runs become a challenge.  Its all on an ‘honor’ system of various ways to earn & log points including;

  • Keeping track of a point calendar each week [earn points by working out, drinking water, giving up sweets and motivating friends]
  • Setting and meeting weekly personal fitness/wellness goals
  • Completing weekly bonus challenges

It may seem like a lot of tedious point counting, but it works and it CAN be fun!  Its evolved over the last few years and we’ve grown it this year to 30+ participants!  Woo hoo!

This year we are also lucky enough to have several local businesses participating, offering support and even prizes.  These businesses include;

  • NOOMA [a clean, hydrating drink company based out of Cleveland]
  • Harbor Yoga [one of our local favorites!]
  • Bend Active [Fitness meets Fashion! – Yoga, running and comfy apparel for all!]
  • Winans Dublin [Coffee & chocolate shop where our Saturday group runs start & finish]

GOOD LUCK to all our participants!  May the odds be ever in your favor!!
