It's time to come out of your mild-mannered shell (think Clark Kent), and blossom into the fit and fierce warrior you were destined to be. It is time for you to feel great and the Well Aware Superhero Challenge is here to motivate you to take action.

2020 is all about making you a priority, and living a healthy and well life. Superheroes are courageous, patient, hardworking, and excellent role models.

The goal for this challenge is to increase your cardiovascular activity! All activity counts!

 For adults, regular aerobic exercise leads to:  

  • Improved cardio-respiratory fitness (heart, lungs, blood vessels) 
  • Improved muscular fitness 
  • Lower risk of coronary heart disease and stroke 
  • Lower risk of high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes 
  • Lower risk of high cholesterol and triglycerides 
  • Lower risk of colon and breast cancer, and possibly lung and endometrial cancer 
  • Increased bone density or a slower loss of density 
  • Reduced depression and better quality sleep 
  • Weight control
