Walk 10K: Medical Fitness Week

by Kristin Goddard | Apr 10, 2016
Galter LifeCenter is sponsoring a Walking Challenge during Medical Fitness Week, April 23–29 in conjunction with the Medical Fitness Association.

Walk 70,000 steps in 7 days April 23-29! 

The goal of Medical Fitness Week is to promote an increase in physical activity in all ages and to highlight the medical fitness difference. During this international event, medical fitness centers and communities throughout the world will be offering programming that focuses on teaching people the skills they need to develop healthy lifestyle habits.

Galter LifeCenter is a proud member of the Medical Fitness Association and we want this year’s Medical Fitness Week to be our most successful yet. We are asking you to help us by participating in our Walking Challenge and pledge to walk your way to health. The goal is to walk 70,000 steps in 7 days, or 10,000 steps per day. This equates to only 5 miles a day.

All participants will be given a log form upon registering so they can record their steps, as well as a user-friendly handout that will help convert classes and activities (such as swimming) to steps. All log forms must be turned in at the end of the Walking Challenge. Download it here>

All participants who sign up and participate in the walk will receive a FREE pedometer while supplies last. If you have a fitbit or other tracking device we recommend you use those as that is more accurate.  

All nonmembers who sign up for the challenge can workout for free that week and all members and nonmembers who participate will be entered into a raffle for a free month of membership!
