NYNY: Challenge ends

There were 300 individuals who participated in the 2018 New Year, New You health and wellness challenge. Although losing weight wasn’t a goal for many, 200 pounds were shed overall, and the general health of participants increased.

Throughout NYNY, participants were encouraged to exercise, eat healthier meals, unplug from electronic devices and see what events their community had to offer. The average days of moderate exercise increased from only two to three days, to six and seven days. Participants also increased their intake of fruits and vegetables, as well as water. The number of sleepless nights and/or disrupted nights of sleep decreased through the eight-week challenge.

Team NS Nuts was the overall NYNY challenge winner with 1,997 points.

NYNY is an eight-week wellness challenge that encourages participants to develop positive lifestyle changes.
