Join Team UAMS for Blue & You Fitness Challenge

By Yavonda Chase

Blue & You Fitness ChallengeThe Blue & You Fitness Challenge is a three-month (March 1 – May 31) contest. The challenge aims to prove you can start living a healthy active life anywhere, any time! You and your team will compete against other people or similarly sized teams from across the country to earn points by completing a variety of cardiovascular and strength exercises. Winning teams are named based on accumulated points.

The challenge has added strength training to the list of eligible exercises. In the past, participants completed the challenge by earning points, but this year participants must log at least 30 days of exercise to earn a certificate. Each person has the opportunity to earn Team UAMS up to 276 points!

While great health is a reward of its own, members of the UAMS Team will be eligible to win some special UAMS merchandise.
