Healthier Living in 2018


With the new year always come thoughts and resolutions for better, healthier living. Everyone is aware that fitness and healthy eating is important, and it is increasingly being recognized that a healthy workforce is beneficial to employers too. By creating a positive, safe and healthy environment for employees, you can increase morale, improve your employees’ work/life balance and, in turn, positively impact your business.

Striving toward a healthier community has long been a goal of the Ardmore Chamber of Commerce. In the spirit of that commitment, the Chamber is partnering with Ardmore Institute of Health for a physical activity promotion program in 2018. We are inviting our members and their employees to join us in this yearlong promotion.

Over the course of the year, the Chamber will be working with AIH to promote “Oklahoma on the Move”. The Chamber team will be competing with other businesses around town on nine different challenges throughout the year. Those challenges span the healthy living spectrum from exercise to eating right to increasing water consumption. Participants will earn a chance for prizes, bragging rights and overall improved fitness.

Michelle Sinkler is the Program Director for AIH and is planning the challenges. “Ardmore Institute of Health is excited to facilitate this fun community-wide opportunity for Ardmore,” she said. “Participants can compete against themselves by setting goals at the beginning of the challenge year and have the opportunity to achieve greater physical activity by the end of the 2018, as well as enjoy a healthy competition with others.  Wherever your fitness level is now, this challenge calendar will have something to offer you. Let's have fun together. Healthy citizens promote a healthy community where we all can thrive!”

This Challenge is completely free to all Chamber members who would like to participate on our team. All you need is a step counter of any brand and motivation to improve your health in 2018! If you would like to participate, please e-mail sjohnson@ardmore.org or call 580-223-7765 for more information.
