National Movement To End Heart Disease (And Stroke) In Women
Heart disease in women is extremely high. In fact, each year, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and strokes! Unfortunately, the facts don’t lie and this is an alarmingly high number. But together we can change that because 80 perfect of cardiac events can be prevented…it’s easy!
Friends that do fitness challenges together, stay healthy together! A barrier to being fit and healthy is simply not having the guidance and support. By rallying together it will make it a lot easier!
To start, rally your online squad! Through Go Red For Women’s #GoRedGetFit online fitness challenge (Facebook group), women have free access to two nationally renowned celebrity fitness trainers: Scott Parker and Lisa Morales to help members to be fit and healthy for life. Each challenge lasts approximately 12-weeks, in an effort to turn a behavior into a habit.
The #GoRedGetFit quarter one challenge, designed for optimal results, is:
“Pep Your Step for Good”
1.Take 10,000 steps a day. (About AHA physical activity recommendations.)
2.Know your numbers; get your cholesterol checked and talk to your doctor about your numbers.
It didn’t happen, if you didn’t post it! Participants share and post messages, photos and videos of successes, encouragement and struggles within the group and some are randomly chosen to win prizes from Go Red For Women and Macy’s with a grand prize to the 2018 Red Dress Collection in New York City in February like the chance to win a $1,000, $500, or $250 Macy’s gift card!
