Setting a goal is proven to help keep you motivated. And what’s more inspiring than training for something that will leave you with a great sense of achievement, compared to trying to motivate yourself to hit a number on scale? (pssst. that will happen anyway without you thinking about it with #fitbitch10in10)
Join our tenth year anniversary celebrations by participating in #fitbitch10in10, setting 10 goals that you can work towards during 2019 to complete a life inspiring year of fitness and healthy change!
