50 Days to Summer challenge
Pāpāmoa Snap Fitness is inspiring the community to move more this spring with their 50 Days to Summer challenge.
Unlike many fitness-based challenges, 50 Days to Summer is not about a body transformation.
Club manager Georgia McCulloch says the idea is to incorporate positive healthy habits into participants’ routines to support healthy wellbeing.
“Everyone who joins will have their own challenge, whether it is to lose weight, gain muscle or to be consistent and exercise three days a week for 50 days,” says Georgia.
“The challenge is to help break down the stigma associated with mental illness and encourage healthy conversations to support those affected. It is also to help our members achieve stronger fitness results.
“We’ll definitely be going the extra mile, promoting healthy habits and also having a heap of fun.”
They also hope to raise over $5000 for I Am Hope, a charity which aims to promote positive attitudinal societal change around mental health throughout New Zealand, and fund private care and counselling for young people.
Georgia says with each registration the club will donate $5 to the charity, as well as host additional fundraisers throughout the challenge.
Participants will receive a Myzone heart rate monitor belt, body scans before and after fitness testing and weekly challenges and prizes.
They will also receive a Snap Fitness six week app with meal plans, programmes and mindset tasks.
The challenge starts on October 18 through to December 4, and is open to all members of the Pāpāmoa community.
“Think of your why,” says Georgia.
“Find your why and Snap Fitness will help you get there.”
Snap Fitness is aiming to raise $100,000 across Australia and New Zealand. To get involved, visit https://snapnation.co.nz/mental-health-month/
