The Philadelphia Eagles' Health and Wellness 40-day Training Challenge has inspired us.
The Birds, along with Rothman Institute at Jefferson and Novo Nordisk, started the platform to get fans up on their feet and eating healthy foods. The challenge is free and encourages participants to drink eight glasses of water, catch eight hours of sleep, and complete 20 minutes of physical activity every day. Fans can earn an extra point daily by completing additional activities based on mental and physical health. Yes, prizes are involved. Think: autographed jerseys and, for the grand prize winner, a one-day contract with the team. The challenge ends on Nov. 17.
To help Eagles fans of all ages fit in fitness, we've asked two area personal trainers to share their top workouts or exercise moves.
Here are their suggestions:
Ashley Greenblatt, a personal trainer who works out of the Sporting Club at the Bellevue, shared exercises and stretches that are tailored to different lifestyles.
Gavin McKay, founder of Unite Fitness, offered up a series of workouts ranging from beginner to advanced.
