NOVABAA April Fitness Challenge

Has COVID got you feeling stir crazy?  Have you lost a step with your regular fitness routine due to the pandemic?  Are you interested in getting back in shape, or competing with friends in the spirit of healthy competition (literally)?  Do you want some accountability partners in your health journey? Well look no further!

Beginning in April, NOVABAA will be promoting monthly fitness challenges, pitting our NOVABAA members, young and old against one another.  These challenges are meant to inspire each of us to dig deep and force us to take that walk after we get home from work, or to take the stairs while we're at work.  We hope that these challenges will encourage us to hold one another accountable for our health goals, and possibly inspire some friendly trash talk amongst the saints. :) 

You MUST have an Apple Watch to participate*.  Sorry FitBit and Android users, you all won't be able to compete until May.  The nature of the competition is that you earn points for closing the rings on your Apple Watch.  Every time you close a ring, you gain bonus points.  You may close your ring multiple times (up to 3x) to get additional bonus points.  The top 3 winners at the end of the month will win Gold, Silver and Bronze medals through the App, which will correspond to real life prizes and awards from NOVABAA.  Depending on how this challenge goes over, we may implement some team oriented challenges down the road.

You will need to download the "Challenges" App here to begin.  Once you download it, you will need to put in the following code "dxab" to join the NOVABAA April Fitness Challenge.  It's a few weeks away, but please do not wait until the last minute.  Participation is free to current members and $5 for everyone else.  We promise to have prizes for our winners, and most importantly, we hope to inspire one another to hold each other accountable and to strive for good health and wellness moving forward!

To participate in the NOVABAA April Fitness Challenge:

  1. You must have an Apple Watch.
  2. Click here to download the Challenges App.
  3. Once inside the app, click the button "Join a Challenge"
  4. It will ask you for a code, input "dxab"
  5. You will see a group NOVABAA picture, along with the caption "NOVABAA April Fitness Challenge"
* - For anyone concerned, your personal information (i.e. - phone number) will not be seen by anyone if you choose to participate.

     I'm excited about helping NOVABAA members to focus on their health and wellness in this new position.  I look forward to assisting our members in focusing on their physical and mental health and wellness with the same attention that they pay to their professional development and success.  African Americans are more likely to suffer from High Blood Pressure, Diabetes and Strokes than others.  In this position I hope to keep us motivated to succeed and to promote good health and fitness through enjoyable programming and some healthy competitions.  If you have any suggestions for health and wellness programming, whether it be fitness competitions, yoga, meditation, or anything else, please do not hesitate to contact me.
