New in 2018

In lieu of ‘facility led teams’, teams/individuals will ALL have opportunity to ‘win a workout with a trainer’ either with the entire team attending an event, or simply by putting in a request for a trainer, or style of workout. Jazzercise, Crossfit, the YMCA, and HFM Wellness Center have all agreed to take teams for really cool workouts! We hope this spreads out our trainer’s expertise a bit more.

Early Registration Incentives:

Anyone registering on or before December 8th will be eligible for the registration incentive, plus you'll have your t-shirt ready for pickup at the kickoff!

Ways to Participate:

As an Individual:

You’re invited to participate in all events and activities, and share in the education and informational process.

Make your own team:

Chose a captain and invent a fun team name. Have the captain create a team. Have friends, family or co-workers search for that team name and register as part of the team.
