The Medical Fitness Association and the Marketing Committee are proud to host the Annual Medical Fitness Week Challenge with two programs, the MOVE150 and the WALK10K.

MOVE150

The MOVE150 program focuses on getting participants moving, regardless of their abilities. The purpose of this program would allow participants to reach 150 minutes of activity throughout the Medical Fitness Week, utilizing a variety of programs/offerings in your center. This program is perfect for facilities that wish to offer a cost effective program during the week. Complimentary marketing materials will be provided.

WALK10K

The WALK10K is our walking challenge that we have had tremendous success with over the years. New marketing materials will be available along with a guide that offers some tips and best practices guaranteed to make this event a success for your members and your community! The program does utilize wearables and/or pedometers. While the MFA does not supply these items, pedometers can generally be found at reasonable prices from many suppliers.
