CALGARY, Jan. 30, 2012 /CNW/ - Monday, January 30, marks the launch of
the 2012 Calgary Co-op Whole Health Challenge. "This year, we've made
some exciting changes to the Whole Health Challenge that will increase
participation and encourage people to make healthy choices by offering
great prizes to reward their efforts," says Sarah Boutron, manager of
events and promotions for Calgary Co-op. "The free 10-week program
will give participants the chance to complete four different
challenges, as well as a final challenge which will encompass the
entire Whole Health Challenge event." All of the challenges offer great
prizes, including four grand prizes of unlimited boot camp for a year
for two from FRESH! Fitness.
"FRESH! is proud to be a part of this great program," says Tim Borys, President
and CEO of FRESH! Wellness Group, and gold sponsor of the Whole Health Challenge. "With
the rising obesity epidemic and a largely sedentary population,
well-run programs like the Calgary Co-op Whole Health Challenge are a
breath of fresh air and a great benefit to people searching for a way
to make healthy changes in their lifestyle."
"The Calgary Co-op Whole Health Challenge allows people to participate
within their comfort level," says Colin Kuefler, regional manager for
Johnson Insurance, second of the gold sponsors of the Whole Health
Challenge. "We recognize that not everyone wants to train for a
marathon, so even small changes make a big difference in a person's
journey towards better health."
