Week 2: PLAY
PLAY ON! TAKING THIS STEP IS A DECLARATION AGAINST BOREDOM AND GLOOM.
Your STRONG Challenge continues by rediscovering Play! Research affirms that we are STRONGER when we are having fun; remember the number of times in a day you laughed as a kid? Remember feeling invincible? What about now?
This week we will add to our fitness goals two tall servings of fun. God designed us to smile, laugh, and joke. Rediscovering your joy will add to your foundation of strength. You were made to PLAY!
Keep moving 20 minutes a day and participating in physical fitness activities (Week 1: posted above in menu). Add 2 PLAY ideas to get you laughing and enjoying more. PLAY is how we’ll fight this week; how we’ll get STRONG.

Week 1: GOALS
WELL DONE! TAKING THIS FIRST STEP IS A DECLARATION AGAINST FAILURE AND FRUSTRATION.
Your STRONG Challenge begins with setting fitness goals. Although we'll be encouraging you in other areas of your life, we want to start by focusing on physical health and wellness. Start by setting goals to achieve during the next six weeks (watch the video for guidance). Whether you are at the "walk around the block" level or at the "run the next marathon" level, start where you are, and we'll grow from there. Achieving goals will set the foundation for healthier habits for life. You were made for more!
Below are some ideas to get you off the couch and onto a new healthier life. This is how we’ll fight, how we’ll get STRONG.
