This year, the Total Transformation Challenge (TTC) turns 15, here at the Employee Wellness Center! During these years, nearly 3,000 employees have taken on the challenge and well over 15,000 pounds of stubborn fat was lost. Also, since 2007, many aspects of the challenge have changed and improved to keep up with the latest in exercise science, technology and latest fitness trends.
Last year, the Coronavirus pandemic broke out and completely changed the way we live (and exercise). In 2021 the TTC is pushing forward with changes to help you stay active, fit and safe. Here are some of the new changes in the upcoming Challenge:
Remote Sign Up:
During Registration, you will be able to complete your initial weigh-in and submit verification info all online and from the comfort of your home.
Complete your Weekly Goals remotely:
You can complete your weekly goals at home, park, beach or your local gym or wherever you feel comfortable and safe. Of course, you are welcome to come in to the Employee Wellness Center to do that as well.
Update your Weekly Progress remotely:
Update your miles, strength training sessions, nutrition goals, and your weigh-in information right on your computer or mobile device.
Limited Strength Challenge Demonstration remotely:
You may be able to demonstrate some strength challenge routines remotely and get points for them. Details on this will be announced soon.
Over 125 Training Plans to Choose from Exclusively for the EWC Participants:
TTC Participants website has been updated to include a library of training options that are suitable for home and require little or no equipment to start. There are also options for gym routines and more advanced workouts.
There is more to do at the Employee Wellness Center (EWC):
The Challenge is a whole different experience at the Employee Wellness Center. We have implemented strict COVID19 Safety Measures to help insure a safe training environment for gym members as well as staff and patients of the Cardiac Rehab program.
You can still come in to enjoy a clean and safe training, professional advice, complete Strength Challenges, get weigh-in recommendations and much more.
So, if you were thinking about joining the Challenge but were concerned about safety, then I invite you to take a second look at the Employee Wellness Center and the 2021 Challenge. Feel free to call us at 561-548-3610 or stop by the Employee Wellness Center.
Happy Healthy Transformation!
