Take Shape for Life launched its first National Discover Your Optimal Health Day on Thursday, an initiative shaped around the company’s mission to promote healthy eating and exercise habits. The day takes its name from the New York Times bestselling book, Discover Your Optimal Health, by Take Shape for Life Co-Founder Dr. Wayne Scott Andersen.
In light of the high obesity rates reported among Americans, Take Shape for Life Health Coaches organized a “walk across America,” holding more than 200 community walks to promote an active lifestyle. Over 18,000 participants walked a minimum of one mile as a result of National Discover Your Optimal Health Day. Health Coaches also hosted Healthy Happy Hour events across the country.
“The first steps in changing this nationwide issue include awareness, understanding and taking action. National Discover Your Optimal Health Day allows everyone to come together in order to begin to take positive steps towards making a difference,” said Andersen.
