Filed under: Nutrition: Health, Diet & Fitness, Family Time, Health, Healthy Families Challenge

... and go!

At the starting line we have:

1. Four revved-up families.
2. A list of attainable goals.
3. An action-packed roster of opportunities to get healthier by moving more and eating better.
4. And eight whole months devoted to feeling alive and looking great.

The Quintanas, a Miami-based mom, dad and four kids (three of them teens!). They're looking to kick some butt on the martial arts mats. Not to mention to make sense of their vegan-carnivore-fast food menu.

And the Drevitches, an overscheduled New York City family of five, including three kids who excel at completely different activities. Mom and Dad need to find "parent time" for working out. And the kids? Well, they need to make friends with fruits and vegetables.

Join us every week, beginning Monday, October 4th, and watch our Healthy Families Challengers journey along the fitness path.

Feel free to chime in and cheer them on.
