Improve Your Overall Fitness

The National Center for Health reported that only 23% of Americans get enough exercise, leaving a majority unhealthy and unhappy. 

By committing 150 minutes per week or 21 minutes a day to exercise one can reduce depression by 30%, promote improved sleep, happiness, self-esteem, and reduce stress. Yet, the average American spends 144 minutes a day on social media. 

Does that motivate you to stop your scroll and go for a 15-minute stroll? We hope so but keep reading before you do! 

Whether you are a veteran, military family member or community member looking to jump back into fitness or take your fitness to the next level, HOPE’s Sports & Recreation programs are here to help. 

CHALLENGE YOURSELF WITH TEAM HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS

Team Hope For The Warriors® provides athletes of all abilities the opportunity to engage their competitive spirit at endurance events. Warrior Team members are provided with adaptive equipment and race support to ensure that they are defined by their achievements rather than their injuries. Community Team members challenge themselves to raise funds for America’s heroes, set new athletic goals, or simply support our military. These teams are united by the common goal to improve the rehabilitation of wounded service members and military families. 

Email teamh4w@hopeforthewarriors.org to connect with our staff about 2020 events. 

Need accountability? Log your miles and virtually run with fellow Team Hope For The Warriors members using  STRAVA. 

COMMIT TO YOURSELF AND COMMIT TO HONORING OUR WARRIORS THROUGH HOPE’S 30X30 FITNESS CHALLENGES

Hope For The Warriors will once again be offering 30×30 Fitness Challenges in 2022! 

Our free 30×30 virtual challenges are built on the commitment of participants to perform 30 minutes of an exercise of their choice for 30 days. As a participant, you will have the option to do this individually or build a team. In addition, shirts can be purchased at an additional cost, and you can incorporate a fundraiser into your 30-day challenge to give HOPE to post-9/11 veterans and military families. 

Our first challenge of the year, the Memorial Day 30×30 Challenge, will kick off on May 1st and lead up to Memorial Day. Each day, you will have the opportunity to dedicate 30 minutes of your day to honor a fallen hero through fitness or complete one of their own favorite workouts. Keep an eye out on our website, social media, and emails for more information on how to participate.
