MONTGOMERY – As part of First Lady Tamika Reed’s Move Montgomery Health and Wellness Task Force, the City is partnering with Montgomery’s Downtown Business Association, Crossfit Montgomery, 2A Fitness, Plant Bae, Advanced Practitioners for the River Region and Jackson Hospital to launch the Downtown Health & Fitness Challenge.
The free series is open to anyone in Montgomery ready to take the next step in their fitness journey by adopting healthy routines, like regular exercise and eating well.
“Even in the pandemic’s new-normal, better quality of life begins with taking small steps to reach your goal,” Mrs. Reed said. “We devised this Challenge as a way to promote active lifestyles while catering to busy professionals who are on the go.”
Beginning November 2, participants will sign-in and weigh-in the first Monday of every month from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the RSA Lawns, 201 Monroe Street. Health coaches and organizers will then provide recommendations on workouts that can be accomplished during a quick lunch break or after work. Monthly rewards will be provided to participants throughout the challenge, for those needing an extra incentive!
“Encouraging more activity downtown also boosts the health and wellbeing of our businesses in the area,” DBA President Jonathan Avant said. “Whether it’s running, biking, walking or eating a healthy meal, increased foot-traffic is a win for everyone.”
