Arizona families, do you struggle to get the right amount of physical activity into your routine? Is it impossible to find the means or the time to make sure your kids are eating healthy meals every day? Reports show that adopting a healthy lifestyle is difficult for many families to achieve, and some are projecting that 44% of Americans will be obese by 2030.
This statistic is unacceptable for one Valley business owner, and Kristen Poczulp of Balanced Body Bootcamp decided to do something about it. She is heading up "Fit My Family," an initiative to take one Phoenix family and arm them with everything they need for one year in an effort to transform their health and get them on the road to living a fit life for the long term.
One lucky family will win this opportunity of a lifetime to take charge of their lives for the better, and will have access to bootcamps, personal trainers, and gym memberships. Kids will participate in activities such as gymnastics, sports, and martial arts. Each member of the family will learn how to eat healthy with the help of a registered dietitian, and will be able to speak to counselors about their struggles and successes throughout their journey. The family will also receive spa services and makeovers!
This project is well on its way to becoming a reality, but some help from the community is needed to make sure it gets off the ground. Fit My Family is looking for the following to make sure the project is an ultimate success:
- Doctors to monitor patients
- Personal Trainers
- Registered Dietitians
- Counselors to deal with emotional issues, obstacles, behavior modification
- Kids fitness or sports programs (gymnastics, soccer, martial arts, etc.)
- Videography and photography (documentation before, during and after)
- Sporting goods store (shoes, apparel, and equipment)
- Hair salon and makeup
- Lawyer or law firm specializing in or with knowledge of contest rules
Spread the word if you know of a business or individual that may be able to help bring this project to a worthy family, and help inspire healthy living to those who need it most.
The winner of the Fit My Family contest will be announced between December 20th and December 25th and program will start January 1st, 2013. Entries can be posted on our Facebook page from November 1st through December 1st and voted on by Facebook fans.
