A program that encourages better choices for exercise and nutrition. (Did we mention it’s tons of fun?)
Based in Georgia’s State Parks, this unique program emphasizes that nature can play an effective role in combatting many of our pressing health issues. And tons of fun can be had in the process. After all, fitness can be walk in the park, literally!
Fun to Do
When it comes to activities, nature offers something for everyone. This is what makes Georgia State Parks so appealing and a perfect fit for a state-wide health initiative. From hiking and canoeing to tree climbing and mountain biking, we offer every age and experience level an opportunity to get out, get fit and have a ton of fun. Even most self-described “geeks” have fallen in love with the State Parks’ geocaching activities, which combine old-fashioned treasure hunting with online technology and social media.
Tons of Fun will help you find fitness trails close to home, events that are taking place and groups that are forming in your area. Plus you’ll find powerful tools to help you manage your weight loss and connect to a personal trainer for advice and information. These online resources and tools are free, making participation really fun!
Fun to Eat
The Tons of Fun Fitness Challenge recognizes both sides of the fitness equation, exercise and nutrition. We just happen to believe that both can be fun. Organic advocates and celebrity chefs like Cat Cora show us that fresh nutritious food can be fun to grow, fun to prepare and fun to eat! Check out some of the meal ideas created by well-known chefs under the section “Fun Food Resources.” You’ll also find popular Southern favorites with a healthy twist under “Southern Bites Done Light” as well as resources to explain what foods are being freshly-picked here in Georgia each season.
This is your chance to learn about growing and preparing healthy food. And your chance to try a lot of fun dishes, too!
