Up for the challenge?
California youths ages 14 to 18 are invited to take the Governor’s Challenge, a month-long program that encourages youths to be physically active for 30 to 60 minutes a day at least three days a week. As an incentive, youths can register to obtain a free 30-day teen fitness pass good at 24 Hour Fitness. “This program has the potential to significantly impact the health and self-esteem of high-school students across the state,” explained Jake Steinfeld of Body by Jake, who also happens to be chairman of the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. Participants will track their “active days” on an online activity calendar. Those brave enough to complete the challenge will receive various rewards, including an additional 90-day teen fitness pass, essentially enabling them to work out for free for four months.
