Franklin Gets Fit
Join our FREE fitness and step challenge with BodyBlast
Franklin Gets Fit is a fun, six-week fitness challenge for PBA members hosted by the local fitness gurus at BodyBlast.
It's a chance to promote workplace wellbeing and have fun with your colleagues and other businesses.
Participants will be divided into two teams, which will be competing for prizes and bragging rights while getting active. Each team will be led by Kate or Cherie from Bodyblast and will work together in a step challenge. This can be running, walking, or anything that keeps you moving a bit each day.
Research has shown that regular walking can lower the risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes, while also improving blood pressure and cholesterol levels. A brisk pace can help strengthen bones and muscles, reduce the risk of osteoporosis, and improve balance and coordination. In addition to the physical benefits, walking has been linked to enhanced creativity, increased workplace productivity, improved sleep quality, and a reduced risk of depression.
By joining our community challenge, you’ll not only be prioritising your well-being, but you’ll also be part of a supportive and motivating group, all working towards the common goal of better health. All you will need is good shoes, a can-do attitude, WhatsApp, and a way to count your steps (e.g. smartwatch, phone, or pedometer).
There will be a 3km time trial on the first and last day of the challenge to measure our progress, and spot prizes throughout the challenge, such as free Body Blast classes.
Whether it's a New Year resolution or you’re looking for team building with your staff, join our free six-week fitness competition with Body Blast.
