Piedmont Parent’s 2016 Fit Family Challenge is revving up for a May 1 kick-off, and we’re bringing back the online fitness tracker, weekly e-newsletters, Fit Family blog posts and amazing prizes.

You’ll meet our Spotlight Families, who will work with a panel of wellness experts, sharing their challenges and triumphs with all of you during this eight-week challenge.

Pre-registration is open so sign up today at myfitfamilychallenge.com! But first, here are answers to frequently asked questions about how the challenge will work.


What is the Fit Family Challenge? 

The Fit Family Challenge is a free, eight-week healthy lifestyle program for Triad families. We want to motivate families to get moving and create healthier lifestyles.


Who can participate?

The Fit Family Challenge is designed to focus on helping families create a healthier lifestyle. Participants under 18 years old must be included in a family registration account that has at least one adult participant. Families can also be nontraditional, as long as they do not exceed four members older than 18. So groups can create their own Fit Family Challenge account and participate.


How does my family participate?

Visit myfitfamilychallenge.com and click on “Get Started!” Starting May 1, you can sign into your account to track activities for a chance to earn points and win prizes. The more you participate, the more points you earn! The tracker is mobile-friendly, so you can log activities and minutes using your smartphone, too. As a Fit Family Challenge participant, you’ll also have access to free community exercise classes, expert fitness advice and nutrition tips. You can earn extra points by attending Fit Family Challenge events and fitness classes.


What can we win? 

The grand prize for the 2016 Fit Family Challenge is a family vacation to Universal Orlando® Resort! There will also be weekly prizes and a benchmark prize that will be awarded during week four. Winners are determined by random drawings, so everyone has a chance.
