Our Goal
Our goal is to have everyone achieve either:
10,000 steps a day
30 to 60 minutes of exercise daily, converted into a step count 

And if your daily step count goes beyond this, that will be fantastic!

The Eight Dimensions of Wellness
Being aware of The Eight Dimensions of Wellness and trying to balance these dimensions every day is a way to improve our mental and physical health.  Daily physical health includes eating healthy foods, getting adequate hours of sleep and physical activity. View this video for more information.
