Change your body inside & out for free
Heart disease is the number one killer of women and men in the United States and many of the risk factors can be improved by eating right and getting enough exercise. The 100-Day Heart Challenge is a “reality TV”-type experience that gives participants the education and training necessary to make lifestyle changes that will improve their heart health.
The 2013 Fall 100-Day Heart Challenge officially begins August 28 and goes until December 5.
Any Utah County resident age 30 and above who is not an employee of Intermountain Healthcare and who wants to improve his or her heart health may apply. 21 participants will be selected and they will each pick a partner.
Each participant goes through testing to assess her or his current heart health including:
Those same items are tested at the end of 100 days in order to determine the winner of the Challenge. Much of the work in the Challenge is done at home, but the participants attend a weekly nutrition class at Utah Valley Regional and work out in the hospital’s Wellness Center where trainers have tailored an individual exercise program for each participant.
Deadline to submit an application is midnight on Wednesday, August 7, 2013.
