Join the Let’s Move for a Better World Challenge and help fight childhood obesity!
For the second straight year, Saw Mill Club is participating in the Let’s Move For a Better World Challenge. The challenge is a worldwide wellness program designed to empower local communities to fight childhood obesity. Conducted in partnership with Technogym, the challenge will run from March 1 – March 19, 2016.
During the Challenge, Saw Mill Club members will compete against other participating fitness facilities to see which club’s members can collectively create the most MOVEs (Technogym’s metric of measuring physical movement.)
- The winning fitness facility in each country will have the opportunity to make a difference in its local community by donating a full line of Technogym equipment to a local school–in our case Fox Lane High School.
- All SMC members who join in the Challenge will have chances to receive a commemorative dri-fit workout shirt as awards for certain milestones.
- During the challenge, members will simply log in to their mywellness account to document their MOVEs. All participating members will have their MOVE’s automatically tracked when they workout at the club via Technogym’s mywellness cloud.
- Technogym’s mywellness cloud is a fitness tracker that allows members to measure and aggregate all of their workout data while at the club or even working out elsewhere. Additionally most other fitness tracking apps and devices interface with the mywellness cloud.
“Last year was the first year Saw Mill Club participated in Let’s Move For a Better World. I was truly moved by the number of members who were willing to join and donate their moves last year. Towards the end of the challenge we held an event where we moved from 16th place to a top 10 finish in the country. This year we will be holding two of those events. The first event will take place Sunday, March 6th.” – Katie Simco, Personal Trainer and Technogym Coordinator at Saw Mill Club.
The Let’s Move for a Better World challenge in 2015 recorded more than 300 million MOVEs, representing a total of 79,370 MOVERs at 365 fitness facilities worldwide in 10 different countries.
