Congratulations to Our 2016 Get Fit 30-Day Challenge Winners!

getfitsd_hashtagMore than 700 individuals took part in the San Diego Regional Chamber’s 4th Annual Get Fit San Diego 30-Day Challenge, logging a total of 12,651 hours of activity. The Challenge, sponsored by Kaiser Permanente, ran from January 11 to February 9 to encourage employees and businesses in San Diego to commit to a healthy lifestyle for 30 days and beyond.

At the start of the Challenge, participants selected one of three divisions to compete in based on fitness level: “Back on the Wagon,” “Average Joes,” and “Fitness Buffs.” Throughout the Challenge participants joined weekly activity challenges and photo contests while tracking their daily exercise, nutrition and wellness to earn Thrive points. The individuals and teams with the most Thrive points at the end of the 30 days were awarded a prize.
