    NOVABAA June Fitness Challenge

    May's Fitness Challenge is wrapping up, and a certain Judge is thrashing the rest of us!  (It's shameful! Final results will be posted at the conclusion of the Challenge so that our champion may get the proper recognition).  The spirit of competition is intense, and the friendly trash talk is a huge motivator for the competitors to kick it into high gear.  If you missed out on May's competition, and want to get back in the swing of things, sign up for June's competition.  RSVP Now!

    Has COVID got you feeling stir crazy?  Have you lost a step with your regular fitness routine due to the pandemic?  Are you interested in getting back in shape, or competing with friends in the spirit of healthy competition (literally)?  Do you want some accountability partners in your health journey? Well look no further!

    Beginning in April, NOVABAA will be promoting monthly fitness challenges, pitting our NOVABAA members, young and old against one another.  These challenges are meant to inspire each of us to dig deep and force us to take that walk after we get home from work, or to take the stairs while we're at work.  We hope that these challenges will encourage us to hold one another accountable for our health goals, and possibly inspire some friendly trash talk amongst the saints. :) 

    If you are interested

         I'm excited about helping NOVABAA members to focus on their health and wellness in this new position.  I look forward to assisting our members in focusing on their physical and mental health and wellness with the same attention that they pay to their professional development and success.  African Americans are more likely to suffer from High Blood Pressure, Diabetes and Strokes than others.  In this position I hope to keep us motivated to succeed and to promote good health and fitness through enjoyable programming and some healthy competitions.  If you have any suggestions for health and wellness programming, whether it be fitness competitions, yoga, meditation, or anything else, please do not hesitate to contact me.
