If your fitness and health leave something to be desired, take action. AARP is offering new and interesting ways to take an active role in promoting your own health. The Fat2Fit Challenge is offering people the chance to get together and help motivate each other to lose weight as a team. Fat2Fit allows people to share stories, give advice to others who are struggling and share motivation amongst folks who are all working to improve their fitness.
Another key to staying healthy is ensuring that you regularly monitor many common health measures such as blood sugar and pressure. AARP can help you out here too as it has joined with Walgreens on a Wellness Tour to give free health screenings to Americans all across the country. This is a great way to do some basic tests and get an idea as to your general health. Check out our new CEO as he discusses the tour.
