Exercise is Optional; Movement is Essential

Pinehurst, North CarolinaApril 7, 2016 - Move your body during the 12th Annual Medical Fitness Week, beginning April 23 – 29, 2016, coordinated by the Medical Fitness Association. No special skill is required to join the fun!

Fitness clubs, gyms, health and wellness centers, and community programs across the nation can get their members together and participate as a team. Registration is free, with a chance to win big! 

Two events give everyone an option that matches their comfort level of fitness and movement abilities. The Move150 event encourages people to simply move enough minutes each day to reach 150 total minutes of movement for the week, regardless of abilities; the Walk10K is a Worldwide Walking Challenge that focuses on participants achieving a daily goal of 10,000 steps! The team with the most steps wins! Other events and activities will take place nationwide.

The goal of the Medical Fitness Association initiative is to promote an increase in physical activity levels in all ages and to highlight the medical fitness difference.  During this international event, medical fitness centers throughout the U.S., Canada, Brazil, Europe, and Asia are offering resources and educational opportunities for their communities, promoting the medical fitness difference and raising awareness of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
