The National invites you to take the next step in our #healthyliving campaign.
We are encouraging everyone with a fitness tracker (Fitbit, Jawbone, Misfit or Withings) to register for The National's #startwalking challenge.
The goal is to take at least 10,000 steps a day and compete against all of the other participants to see who can take the most steps.
Those who enter the challenge will be able to see their rankings and compare them with the rest of the pack.
We expect to see some friendly competition between family members, friends and colleagues as our walkers vie for bragging rights.
The competition, hosted by Get Fit Arabia, offers a prize of Dh10,000 in shopping vouchers for whoever takes the most steps next month.
There will also be four draws for Dh1,000 in shopping vouchers at the end of the month.
Each time a participant reaches the daily goal of 10,000 steps they will receive a virtual ticket in the draw.
You can join the club now online at thenational.ae.
Registration will be open until March 5.
We hope you share our enthusiasm for getting out and making some simple lifestyle changes.
And we look forward to bringing you our next edition of #healthyliving magazine on March 26, in which we will continue to explore the benefits of walking.
