Join my team! Do the Whole Life Challenge

The Whole Life Challenge challenges us to “try on” a whole life of health and fitness for eight weeks. As a team, we can win points and lose points—there are bonuses along the way for sticking with various areas (getting enough sleep, exercising consistently, sticking to dietary choices). I’d love to have you on my team (we’re called Make It Happen). The challenge begins May 7th, but you should register right away to get ready.
