8 years ago, I began a challenge to not set “resolutions” but instead set specific goals with a deliberate plan!

During this 12 week journey, you’re going to work hard, discover amazing things about yourself and walk away with lots of tools to sustain your lifestyle changes.
Please don’t take this challenge lightly It’s called a challenge for a reason! You’ll be expected to complete a goal worksheet,  encouraged to participate in FREE fitness events AND stay on track through Spring Break.  Yep…..life doesn’t stop happening just because you have a goal. Don’t worry, you’ll have all the tools needed to complete this journey!


You may even walk away with lots of CASH! Last year, our 3 winners won a total of $2800 from the Jackpot*!! Are you ready to get started?


*Participation in the Cash Jackpot award requires a $25 donation. See Rules & Regulations for more details
