ABOUT HEALTH CHALLENGE 2.0
The long and challenging phase of the pandemic has surely taught us how being fit creates resilience to ward off the inner and the outer battles of life in all parameters. We are constantly seeking motivation and inspiration to create a better life. This had led Fit India Ambassador and Deep Health influencer, Sandeep Mall, to start a 100 Day Health Challenge in April last year, which had become a mass fitness drive, with 580 individuals virtually connected to get fitter together.

100 DAY HEALTH CHALLENGE 2!
Beginning of the New Year is when many of us make resolutions and set new personal goals, fitness topping the list for most – so January was the perfect time to begin 100 Day Health Challenge 2.0!
Participating in a health challenge is a powerful way to build the practice of taking care of your physical well-being and if you find staying motivated to be a challenge, being part of a virtual community has been a game-changer for many during the last challenge. Joining a mass fitness drive, like 100 Day Health Challenge, not only impacted many lives but also influenced their friends, family and virtual networks
The core mantra of the Challenge 2.0, championed by Sandeep Mall and Supported by Paytm, was to be consistent in building a better version of yourself. Mall believes that to move forward and excel in every aspect of life, you don’t need validation from others but to #AdmireYourself first.
The CHALLENGE 2.0 was unique in its format where varied activities were done and the event was not limited to just a few. Participants continued following their own routine or change their activities depending on mood and interest to avoid monotony.
The repertoire of activities included walking, running, cycling, swimming, strength training, yoga, zumba, aerobics, and also playing tennis, badminton etc. The idea was to be physically active and to get into a routine to get into your best shape and #AdmireYourself, for the results that will be achieved with consistency in efforts. Participants did the activities multiple times a day. For those who worked out more than 2 hours, the app was configured to report the best performing two hours of the activities to the Challenge dashboard, to be fair to the efforts.
It was really heartening to see about 1000 participants from across the country and overseas, coming together and making 2022 a year of intentions, goals, discipline and achieving an optimum level of physical health.
