Wellness Freebies, Discounts Available through Healthy Holidays Challenge

Commit to Fit! is teaming up with the Crim Fitness Foundation to offer the Healthy Holidays Challenge.

As part of the four-week initiative, participants are challenged with logging 2,000 wellness points over the course of one month, and earn one point for every minute of activity and 10 points for every minute of mindfulness.

Examples of mindfulness activities include meditation, breathing exercises, yoga and mindful coloring (free pages are available for download on the Commit to Fit site). In fact, participants will have access to a number of free and discounted yoga classes over the next few weeks.
