On February 11, 2017, started its Movement Challenge Initiative to inspire Groceryships’ participants to get active. Movement Challenge offers participants and alumni a safe, inspiring, and free place to work out. Program participants and alumni gather at Exposition Park, across the street from the University of Southern California, to workout, three times a week for one hour, doing a variety of fitness classes such as Zumba, Yoga, and High Intensity Interval Training. The park makes for an inviting and inspiring family friendly location. Zumba is offered every Monday, HIIT is offered every Thursday morning, and on Saturdays we alternate between Yoga and HIIT.
This initiative aims to create a fitness team that works as a support system that inspires one another to get more active on a consistent basis. Sometimes it is hard to find the motivation to work out by yourself, but being part of a team is more fun and encouraging because you don’t only get fitness, you also get the opportunity to socialize and catch up with new and old friends.
The Movement Challenge Initiative will run through the end of April. At the end of the program, the participants and/or participant who has the best attendance will win a grand prize.
