Welcome to week 6 of the #8fitChallenge! Last week, you were challenged to read ingredient lists to identify which “healthy foods” were actually “unhealthy.” This week, let’s continue building healthy habits by incorporating more movement into your daily routine.

Sitting is just as bad as smoking

Have you heard the news? Sitting is the new smoking. Sitting is symptomatic of modern society — we sit to drive, we sit on the train, we sit at our desks, we sit when we eat. The result is we don’t move enough, though our bodies are meant to move regularly.

Your challenge this week is to incorporate additional movement into your daily life. You can do this by taking the stairs instead of the elevator, riding your bike to work, getting off public transit a stop early, or walking around the room every time you drink water.

Weekly challenge

Post a photo or a video and celebrate all your extra activity on your Instagram page. Remember to tag #8fitChallenge and #8fit in the caption. We’ll select 1 random winner for the weekly 8fit prize pack from photos shared starting at 12:01 am PST May 14, 2018, and ending at 11:59 pm PST May 20, 2018. Winner announced May 21, 2018!

See you Thursday for our fun live 8fit workout!
