Do you want improve your own health while at the same time have an impact on and improve the lives of others in our community? Are you ready to spend 31 days establishing healthy new habits? March is one of our favorite months at BodyMetrix because it is National Nutrition Month. This year, we are celebrating by starting a month long challenge on March 1st. It should be simple to understand but challenging to execute.
Complete each daily, individual challenge and receive a point. The person with the most points wins!
During the 31-day challenge, you will have the opportunity to complete up to 15 challenges daily. For every challenge you complete, you will receive one point, for a possible total of 15 points every day. The person with the most points at the completion of the 31 days wins and will receive a $50 Gift Certificate to True Food Kitchen. Once you sign up, we will email you a form where you will be able to log in and submit your progress each day. We trust you will fill out the form accurately.

No purchase is necessary, but we hope you will consider partnering with us with the option to donate $10 to Operation Backpack. Operation Backpack is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing food to students in our community who would otherwise go without. (Note that 100% of your donation will go to Operation Backpack, and will not increase your odds of winning.)
