Challenge Details

 We are thrilled to present you with our program which will encourage you to make healthier choices over the next 3 weeks and beyond. We have decided to concentrate on 3 main health aspects: activity, nutrition, and lifestyle. This challenge is open to tenants of the Vision Critical building.

Activity Based

• You will be rewarded with 1 point for participating unsupervised in 30 minutes of strenuous cardio activity or 20 minutes of weight training. While more activity is recommended, extra points will not be offered if the time is exceeded. • Four points will be rewarded for supervised cardio activity or weight training. Supervised activities may include: attending a spin class, going to a boot camp, or being trained by a personal trainer. Participating in supervised activity will encourage you to work even harder when a group or leader are present to motivate you. • We will also offer 2 points for those of you who post your workout score or time to our online chalkboard or  in the comments of this blog post.For instance, you could post your time for completing a CrossFit workout, the distance that you ran in your workout, or any other stats. Chalkboard and blog can be found at www.precisionathletics.ca

Nutrition Based

• Attending our Group Nutrition Consultation on Tuesday, June 8th at 6pm will provide you with the knowledge required to make healthier food choices for the rest of your life. This highly educational seminar will be worth 5 points. • Caffeine, soft drinks (regular and diet), grain, and sugar are shortcuts to a variety of health problems such as: diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. Simply lowering consumption will greatly improve energy and vitality while decreasing body fat and stress levels. • Dehydration is often mistaken as hunger. Drinking 6-8 ounces of water prevents you from overeating and helps to maintain healthy skin and joints.

Lifestyle Based

• Taking the stairs at work is a great opportunity to get in extra exercise. • Getting enough sleep is essential for reducing stress and increasing energy levels. Sleeping early will allow your body to fully repair itself by the next morning. Sleeping before 11pm and getting 8+ hours will give you 2 points each. • Alcohol robs the body of much-needed water. Avoid dehydrating yourself and receive 2 points.
