What is The KC GETS FIT Resolution Challenge?

The KC GETS FIT Resolution Challenge is a fun, interactive journey to better health. The challenge is for all fitness levels! This online wellness and weight loss competition helps individuals reach their health goals by focusing on motivation, activity and nutrition (side effects may include weight loss!).

The Resolution Challenge includes live workouts, seminar sessions, weigh-ins and a complete body fat analysis and measurement taking place on January 14 and February 18. The Online Challenges will focus on a range of wellness topics, such as activity and nutrition. Participants will also receive motivation and nutrition tips from Kansas City's own, Tony Temple, throughout each week of the challenge! Tony will guide participants through each week as he reflects on his experience and shares tips and tricks that work for him.

To earn points, participants will log into the web or app to journal challenge activities.

Prizes winners will be selected in two ways.
