Whether you're a New Year's Resolution gal or just someone who needs ongoing goals to keep motivated, we're bringing back MOTRvate28, our 28-day (plus 1 for Leap Day!) healthy lifestyle challenge for the month of February. It’s everything you liked about our Healthy Holiday Challenge from years past, with local team accountability to add to the fun*.

If you are in one of our northern locations, use this challenge as a way to prepare for the spring running season!

We’ll give one to the top scorer and conduct a random drawing of all participants who check in weekly for the other. We are also offering a little friendly competition between franchises. The city with the highest average score will win our team challenge!
