Many Virginians want to be fit and physically active, but don’t know where to begin. Virginia Cooperative Extension has developed an eight-week healthy-living program to help Virginians improve their exercise habits, diet and overall quality of life in a fun and challenging way.
FIT Extension encourages people to form a team of up to six to work together to reach a fitness goal, including engaging in at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity five times a week. This can include biking, yoga, running or brisk walking. Additionally, the program includes a nutrition component that promotes healthier eating. Although teams do not directly challenge each other, team captains set individual team goals and help track progress.
The program will run from March 20-May 14.
