Competitor Group, Inc., the parent company of the Rock ‚Äėn‚Äô Roll Marathon Series, has recently joined forces with the President‚Äôs Challenge. Together the two groups have created an incentive program to help Americans receive the Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA). The program is called ‚ÄúCommit to Fit‚ÄĚ and participants in will be pledging to earn their PALA by being active for 30 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week for 6 out of 8 weeks. Youth, aged 6-17, are encouraged to participate too. They are challenged to tally up 60 minutes of activity a day.
Participants are encouraged to sign up at www.presidentschallenge.org. There you can set their fitness goals and begin tracking your activity. The program ends on September 14, 2011 and registration closes on August 1, 2011.
As incentive to sign up and follow through, registrants will receive daily fitness tips, fitness articles from Competitor.com, and they will receive information about featured fitness events to encourage participation in fun active events.
Those who are committing to get fit will also receive a $10 event discount code to Competitor sponsored events, a limited edition shirt, and a completion certificate signed by the President‚Äôs Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition co-chairs Drew Brees and Dominique Dawes.
This event is a positive movement for our entire country. With adult and childhood obesity at all time highs, the time to commit to fitness is now. This is a great way to involve the entire family in active living. With daily hints and tips, there are no excuses for not getting involved. Plus, there are prizes! ‚ÄúCommit to Fit‚ÄĚ today and get moving!
