SFC 3-Week Fitness Challenge

The challenge is to do a minimum of 150 minutes per week aiming to do 30 minutes of exercise every day, if possible. The 30 minutes of exercise per day does not need to happen all at once, it can be broken down into smaller time increments (3 x 10 minutes or 6 x 5 minutes, etc).

  • Record the number of minutes per day.

  • Submit your spreadsheet at the end of the 3 weeks (we would like to have everyone’s submissions by June 29th).

I have attached an Excel form which automatically adds up your total each week as well as final total.

The names of those who completed the program will be put in a hat for a grand prize draw. The grand prize is a free SFC membership (13 months).

Regular exercise has been found to be extremely beneficial in keeping people, including seniors, healthy both physically and mentally. It helps to:

  • slow down dementia,

  • prevent heart problems, and

  • even reduces the severity of COVID-19.

It is recommended that everyone should do 150 minutes of exercise a week (30 minutes 5 times per week). Exercise includes walking, exercise classes (such as offered by the physios or Kim Knight), dance (ballet school) or other dancing at home, canoeing, kayaking, cycling, gardening, and yoga (such as offered by Angela Stewart). As seniors, though, one needs to listen to one’s body and push just a little. You want to increase your strength, but not get injuries.

There are also many programs offered online (some for a fee):
