Fit and Fabulous Weekly Fitness Challenge

Staying home, staying safe doesn’t mean giving up staying active. For the next few weeks, we challenge MD JCI Senators to join us in doing just that – by exercising. Simply engage in a physical exercise for at least 10 consecutive minutes each day. Exercise can be aerobics, walking, jogging, running, weight training, cycling, swimming (if you have access), yoga, tai chi – well, you get the idea. Keep track of your daily activities, either by keeping a log, or with your Fitbit or other smart watch.

Engage in the minimum number of minutes every day for that week’s goal and you have MET THE CHALLENGE!!! (patting yourself on the back is a bonus, it doesn’t add minutes to your total). The goal for each week of the Challenge increases: 10 minutes per day for the first week; 20 minutes per day the second week; 30 minutes per day the third week; and 40 minutes per day (whew) the fourth week. Activities, to count, must each be at least 10 consecutive minutes, different activities may be added together for your daily total. For example, if you do two 15 minute aerobics sessions in a day, you have done 30 minutes for that day.

Email your week’s results to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. on Saturday of each week. Week 1 is now finished.

Week 3 begins Sunday, April 26.

“Challenge Winners” will be posted here on the MD JCI Senate website and on the MD JCI Senate’s Facebook page. If you were not able to meet one week’s challenge, DO NOT despair, keep going, and meet the next week’s challenge. Getting involved in the challenge is more than something to help occupy us in these difficult days – it can become a habit, one which may change your life. JOIN IN AND GET FIT AND FABULOUS!!
