FIT-P is kicking off the new year with a series of challenges! Our goal is to encourage MOARNG Soldiers to keep their health and the health of their battle buddies a priority throughout the year.
All Soldiers are encouraged to participate. Participation from everyone helps demonstrate that fitness is something we all need to work on; participation from our leadership and fit Soldiers demonstrates leading by example; participation by our Soldiers who need to improve fitness provides accountability; and participation by everyone helps promote fitness culture.
All challenges will be tracked through Challenge Runner. Participants may sign-up and join a challenge at www.moguard.challengerunner.com There is also a mobile app (Challenge Runner) for Apple and Android that makes it easy to log your daily participation. You may sign-up or sign-in at any time, but you won’t be able to join a challenge until the first day (01 January for the three challenges below).
