Mount Olive New Year, New You Wellness Challenge
What is it? It’s a program to help people get started on living a healthier lifestyle. The Mount Olive New Year New You Wellness Challenge is a collaboration of efforts lead by Mayor Greenbaum and me, Nancy Baccarella-Garcia. Several local gyms have donated memberships for the month of January 2013 (see list below). If the gym isn’t your thing, we also got online fitness company pumpone.com to donate 25 memberships so you can workout at home.
Why are we doing this? Because we care about you, your health, and your family’s health. We want to help Mt. Olive residents weed through all of the confusing messages about weight loss, exercise, and healthy eating. By providing free gym memberships we hope to get you moving in a safe effective way. If the gym isn’t your thing, don’t worry. For those of you who prefer to work out at home, we have an online fitness company giving away free memberships to their online site that has workouts and exercise videos available for you to use any day at any time that is convenient for you.
We also recognize exercise is not the only component to living a healthy lifestyle. That’s why we have teamed up with local chefs and nutrition coaches. Realizing that many of you enjoy meals outside of the home, we have also joined forces with several local restaurants including Frescos, Lepore’s Italian Market, the Publick House, Mamas, and the Long Valley Pub to create healthy low calorie meals (under 500 calories) just for you. We have also teamed up with local nutrition coach Laura Peterson. Laura will be giving a “Sugar Blues” talk on January 9, 2013.
