The Hercules Fitness Challenge is May 28, 2016 at the Orange County Fair Grounds. Test your limits with a road run followed by an obstacle course race. There are categories for all fitness levels and children’s races too. First you will run a 5k/10k, then you will begin the obstacle portion which is labeled according to difficulty. It’s something fun to work towards as an individual or as an entire family. For more information or to sign up go to: www.herculesfitnesschallenge.com
If your looking for a good starting point definitely check out the C25K (Couch to 5k) app. It’s a free smartphone app/fitness program that helps anyone reach the goal of running a 5k in 8 weeks. It gives you a step by step approach to accomplish this goal. You only commit to training 3x a week for 30-40mins. You can even sync your favorite music to the app to help keep you motivated. It’s a great app and I’m actually using it myself too to help build up my endurance. It’s available now for both Apple & Android devices. #CheckItOut

I’ve been using the Fitbit Flex for about 2 weeks and I must say its pretty awesome! This fitness tracking band allows you to track your daily activity (…your steps, sleeping patterns, etc.) It wirelessly syncs with your phone, tablet or computer so you can track your data and stay motivated to reach your fitness goals. I have mine set at 10,000 steps a day and I find myself trying to find a way to get those extra steps in like parking farther, taking the stairs or just going for a run. It definitely keeps me on my toes. Heres a little video that better explains how it all works:
And for all you fashionista’s out there they are working on an exclusive collaboration so that you can transform your band with the signature collection, prints & designs of Tory Burch. You’ll be able to turn your Fitbit Flex into a chic accessory for the weekend, day or evening. #excited For more information & to find out where you can purchase your own Fitbit Flex go to http://www.fitbit.com/flex
