5K Fitness Challenge

Week #1: Getting Started!

OK, are you ready? It's time to get moving!

This week is about getting started with a new exercise plan. Ease into your work outs and find places around your neighborhood where you can walk or run safely. If you're just starting out, its ok to mix in a short jog to your walk and adjust until you find a comfortable pace. Make sure you get your body ready to exercise with lots of rest and water! Don’t forget to connect with other challenge participants on social media and at our Fitness Meet-Ups.
