(Giveaway) Humans Spend Less than 1% of their Lives Working Out

Humans Spend Less than 1% of their Lives Working Out

What would you do if you knew exactly how many days you had left on this earth?

Well, to give you perspective, in their lifetime, humans will spend an average of…

 *   0.69%  exercising
 *   41% engaging with technology
 *   29.75% sitting down
 *   0.45% having sex
 *   6.8% socializing with someone you love

Reebok is challenging these stats with the recent launch of, ’25,915 DAYS’ - a new brand campaign that correlates to the average number of days in a lifetime, and aims to inspire people worldwide to honor their days and push themselves to do more with the bodies they’ve been given.

As you can see, I have approximately 17,732 days left, which has got me doing some serious thinking about my health and the health of my BGR! family! Especially since the average human will spend 29.75 percent of our lives sitting down, either at work or at home – or the equivalent of around.....7,709 days.

So how can you make the most of each day?

  • Realize that even just 30 minutes of activity a day can make a huge impact
  • Take baby steps! That means taking the stairs instead of the elevator or replacing soda with flavored water.
  • Find an exercise you enjoy! We're the first to admit that running may not be for everyone. That's why we welcome walkers too!! Black Girls WALK!
  • Remember that small changes, make a big impact! As they say, Beyonce wasn't created in a day! Take it one day at a time and know that the pay off WILL come! 

But there's more......

We're giving our Black Girls RUN! All Access members an opportunity to get inspired with....you got it.....new threads! It may sound silly, but there's nothing like a cute outfit to make me want to hit the pavement or the gym! 

Today through Friday, May 20, current and new BGR! All Access members can enter a drawing to win an entire outfit from our friends at Reebok! We're talking top, leggings, bra and shoes! AN ESTIMATED VALUE OF $240!! Five lucky ladies will walk away fresh to def. and ready to kick their remaining days in the butt! 

 

                      

HOW TO ENTER

1.) Sign up for BGR! All Access

2.) Check your email for directions on completing your entry

3.) Wait patiently to see if you're a winner!

Don’t agree with the calculation I’m going to be around till I’m 102 so I can have my pic on the smucker’s jar Lol. Always stayed fit but started running at 60. Can’t find a BGR here in Delaware but I run on my own cause it’s about taking care of what God give me
