Here are some testimonials from Reach for the Peaks participants:
"I never thought that I was competitive before. Now I am counting steps and enjoying seeing them add up. My husband was actually teasing me a little and telling me that I was competitive after all… It has been fun to encourage each other to get more steps in each day. It is also fun to see the medals add up. I don't know whose idea it was to get this program started, but it was a great one. I sure hope everyone else is enjoying this health competition to get healthy!"
"So today I am taking a step forward to get off the couch and become healthy. I am overweight, underpaid and not so full of energy! I know if I think I can, I CAN! AND I WILL!"
Reach for the Peaks is just the kind of motivating program from which my friends and I can benefit. I think programs that provide a little healthy competition are wonderful for helping people stick to their goals and achieve success.
