NAILS 10k-a-Day Challenge

by Tracy Rubert | January 1, 2016

The 10k-a-Day Waking Challenge begins today!

Get out of your chair and onto your feet, nail techs! Start the NAILS’ 31-day walking challenge today. Devote the month of January to jump-starting a fitter you and share your results with NAILS readers in our April 2016 issue. Whatever your fitness goals — to lose weight, feel better, and/or improve your overall health — walking is a simple, inexpensive, and effective way to do it.

1. Starting on January 1, 2016, use a pedometer to keep track of your daily steps for one month. You can purchase an inexpensive pedometer or download a free smartphone app such as Pacer. Check out this post for apps that track your steps. 

2. Your goal is 10,000 steps per day. You can break this up into segments — just aim for 10,000 steps total.

3. Share a motivating tip or check in with us on social media all month long using #NAILS10kaDay for a chance to be featured in the April issue of NAILS. 

4. Email us a summary of your month by February 15, 2016. Tell us about your personal goals and what you achieved during the challenge. We love photos too!

Staring January 4, check NAILS social media pages and our Editors Blog for Motivation Mondays — weekly encouragement, tips, and fun fitness facts.

Now let’s get moving! (That includes us here at NAILS.)
