The Sterling Ranch Fitness Challenge
This six-week fitness challenge keeps participants accountable every step of the way. When it began, each resident recieved a list of activities to compete for points. Participants submit their activity trackers every week for a chance to win prizes. Weekly accountability meetings are included in the challenge, helping our local health enthusiasts stay inspired and giving them a space to share their favorite health and wellness tips with each other. At the end of the challenge, we’ll award grand prizes to the top three participants.
