It is definitely feeling like Spring outside and that really makes it a great time to join in on the SNC’s On Track program. It begins on March 23rd through April 19th, however, registration is ongoing throughout the program.
We are looking to inspire you to become more active!
We will be utilizing the American Heart Association’s Walking Take the First Step! website. You can organize a team or go solo. Create your own walking paths and sharing them with others with Map My Walk.
As an added incentive, here are some Apps to try out for motivation:
Just for fun – Teemo: the fitness adventure game. There are 10 adventures to choose from with “short, understandable workouts based on established exercise research.” And you could try out Seconds Pro – Interval Timer for HIIT, Tabata and Circuit Training app; “LOOK NO FURTHER, you have just found the most advanced interval training timer on the App Store.”
Donate a Photo – Take a photo of your team or a selfie in fitness action! Get the app for Donate a Photo and be able to easily donate to a cause of your choice. “Here are some ways you can help your favorite nonprofits by sharing your photos. You’ll raise money and awareness, and help your causes meet their goals.”
Charity Miles – “Charity Miles is an app that allows people to earn money for their favorite charities by tracking their exercise activities. The app’s creators have obtained a number of corporate sponsors who will pay money for every mile ran, walked, or biked.” Take a look at Charity Miles on Facebook and the app is available here.
Journey of Faith
If you would like to strive towards a particular goal, this local walk may interest you.
