Physical activity is one of the three leading lifestyle behaviors that are known to prevent nearly 80% of all chronic diseases, which make up 8 of the top 10 leading causes of death in Texas.

The goal for program participants is to make it through all 4 stages in 100 days using this simple web app. This is available to the public and County Extension Agents for use in their county health programming.
This program will not only help give you a kickstart, but help propel you toward an independent, sustainable healthy lifestyle.
