November is such a busy month — family get-togethers, holiday shopping and parties, and the year’s most thankful of meals — but everybody can spare just five minutes a day. That’s why November’s WellATL challenge is quick but rewarding: The Wall Sit Challenge. Get your legs and butt in shape with our 30-day challenge and by Thanksgiving, you’ll free up an extra seat at the adult table… because you won’t even need a chair! Do it at your office, at home while you’re watching your fave show, or against a tree at the park. You’ll build strength slowly throughout the month with slowly increasing difficulty until, by day 30, that three-minute wall sit will be a breeze. Tweet us @wellatl or visit us on Facebook to let us know how you’re doing throughout the month. Use #WellSitATL for your chance to win sweet prizes throughout the month.
Because we think you’re swell, we have partnered with Athleta, maker of stylish and functional athletic clothes for women, to offer one lucky WellATL reader a free workout top valued at up to $60. To enter, just fill out this form before Friday, November 7, then cross your fingers. Share the contest with friends for even more chances to win.
The word “tennis” can conjure up images of ladies in starched whites playing doubles at the country club, but The Atlanta Youth Tennis and Education Foundation is out to prove that tennis is for everyone, especially the kids of our city. By partnering with the Boys & Girls Clubs, public schools, and City of Atlanta Parks and Recreation, this nonprofit not only teaches the game but also life skills. WellATL serves up this week’s Friday Five to Cee Jai Jones, Director of Community Outreach and Programs for AYTEF. Tips for your swing, the best courts in the city, and more. >>
