Are YOU a Biggest Loser?

The New Year is here and we are ready to challenge ourselves in beginning a healthy lifestyle.

At Sarasota Orthopedic Associates, this week marks the launch of our “Biggest Loser” 12 week staff challenge. We’ve designed a plan of weekly events to motivate #TeamSOA in a quest to lose pounds and get fit. During our first week we will calculate the group total goal of pounds we aim to lose, and, over the course of the challenge we will monitor our group progress. We KNOW we can accomplish this important mission!

If you plan on having your workplace organize a healthy lifestyle challenge, we’re sharing some of our ideas with you. Here are some highlights of our 12 week journey:

So how about it? Let’s get fit together. Follow and “like” us on our Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/srqsoa or on Twitter at www.Twitter.com/soasrq to check our progress. You may also learn more about Sarasota Orthopedic Associates or schedule an appointment on our website at www.SOA.md .
