Coast to Coast Fitness Challenge Registration Now Open

Put on your bell-bottoms, grab your favorite cassettes, and pack the Polaroid® for a fun-filled, nostalgic journey to some of America’s most popular out-of-the-way places.  NIH, is participating  in Coast to Coast, a fun and invigorating fitness and walking challenge available to all NIH employees sponsored by Kaiser Permanente. 

The challenge starts July 21 .  You will be whisked-away on a virtual shore-to-shore tour.  Coast to Coast will take you across this great land of ours, stopping at amazing attractions with postcard-perfect vintage and modern images, plus “bet-you-didn’t-know” descriptions. Each day you’ll visit a new attraction, earning points and “road signs” as you record exercise minutes or steps.

To make this exciting challenge even easier, you can link your own personal tracking device (Fitbit, Garman, etc.) with the Coast to Coast website or mobile app. Your step count will automatically update daily to help you keep pace with the competition and keep track of your personal goals. 

Speaking of competition, you won’t be alone on your Coast to Coast journey.  You will be “competing” with other NIH employees in a race to earn the most points.  But wait! There’s more!  You can also choose to team-up with 3 or 4 other co-workers for a friendly and exciting team competition, even if you’re social distancing.  

Get ready to move toward a healthier you register today!

The challenge officially runs July 21st – August 31st.
