Health Committee's Health Fitness Challenge

The NAACP DC Branch is implementing a six month Health Fitness Challenge to empower individuals to adopt healthy lifestyles through healthy eating and physical activity, from April 2012 through October 2012. African-Americans and other minorities are disproportionately affected by obesity and diet-related illnesses such as asthma, hypertension, arthritis, and diabetes. This Health Fitness Challenge will educate, empower and motivate participants to eat well-balanced nutritious meals and exercise regularly to meet individual health and fitness goals. We have partnered with Nyame Nti Natural Health Solutions, personal trainers, nutritionists, health coaches, and various health care professionals to offer a complimentary personal training session, Health Coach session, fitness plan, meal plan, and other resources to achieve health and wellness.
