One on One and StateCollege.com Offer Nutrition Challenge with Prizes
State College fitness experts are once again challenging area residents to live healthier lifestyles – and offering rewards for those who participate.
Co-founders of One on One Fitness Consultants Bruce and Kym Burke launched the Nutrition Habit Challenge in 2010. Their goal has been to inspire clients of One on One to make one or two small nutritional commitments using the "Less is More" approach. This year, the Burkes are inviting the entire community to participate.
The "Less is More" concept is that making small behavioral changes can stop a downward spiral of destructive behavior and begin an upward spiral of constructive behaviors.
Kym Burke says the main objective is to educate, motivate and inspire the community to take personal responsibility for their health habits.
"Our hope is that families can come together to not only work to improve their nutrition...but also demonstrate integrity and honesty and personal responsibility, hold each other accountable," she says. "We look at it as an opportunity for so much more than simply changing a nutrition behavior."
The challenge benefits the Youth Service Bureau and Centre Volunteers in Medicine. By making a donation to one of these organizations participants will be eligible for many prizes, including a trip for four to Disney World. To participate in the challenge and become eligible for prizes, Click HERE.
"We are excited to be a part of this cause and the charities it benefits and I hope many in the community will join us with their support," says Dan Myers, president of StateColllege.com.
The challenge has also extended to Facebook. In an effort to spread the word about this healthy initiative, StateCollege.com will donate 50 cents for every new Facebook "like" from local friends and family.
