Solstice Step It Up Challenge

Last year, the City of Lakewood really stepped it up in enhancing our community by installing the Solstice Steps in Lakewood Park. Not only is it a creative use of our shoreline, but it provides a destination for people to gather and furthers our small town feel.

As a health coach, I’m constantly looking for fun ways to encourage people to step up their fitness + nutrition habits in an effort to fight against heart disease, diabetes, obesity and other lifestyle-related ailments. Since the Summer Solstice is June 20 and this is the first summer that the Solstice Steps are open, it seemed only natural to create a fitness challenge around this event.

For the week of June 20-25, I invite you to participate in the Solstice Step It Up Challenge. During this week, I will provide you with suggested workouts that incorporate steps, clean eating meal plans, fun mini-challenges along with health tips and encouragement. Your mission will be to get to the Solstice Steps as your schedule allows during that week and participate to the best of your ability. To also support our local businesses, I will award prizes to the top three participants.

You must have a Facebook account to participate since the challenge is hosted through a private Facebook group page. To join or to ask questions, please message me through my Facebook page, by Thursday, June 16 and I will provide you with details on how to sign up.
