Has your Family signed up to The 2Gs Grand Challenge?

By Everybody Sport February 2, 2016

The 2Gs Grand Challenge which launched on the 1st December 2015, is designed to get the residents of Holmes Chapel active & staying active, setting a manageable goal & going for it. It was initially for grandparents & grandchildren but has been expanded to include the whole family. Holmes Chapel Partnership along with Everybody Sport & Recreation have secured funding from both Active Cheshire & Cheshire East Council in order to help get the community involved.

What does the Challenge involve?

The Challenge is a fun FREE way to get into fitness, together with the motivation and encouragement from your family.  The team will professionally assess each group’s current levels of fitness (using a questionnaire and optional physical measurements) and suggest how the individuals can improve their fitness using a programme of moderate exercise – this could involve walking, jogging, running, swimming – whatever the participants feel they can sensibly manage, and is fun rather than a chore. All we ask is that each team attends the assessment session, agrees to stay with the programme for a minimum of 3 months, keeps a record of your progress, and attends informal progress assessments after 3 and 6 months.Grandparents And Granddaughter Walking On Winter Beach
