Dino Venti @ Tumalo Falls

#VentisWinterChallenge is here!  Week #1 is underway and we’re bringing you a fun giveaway.  Venti’s is committed to being part of and promoting a healthy lifestyle, which not only means serving you good, clean food, but also encouraging our guests, crew, friends and family to be active with fitness during winter in the Great Pacific Northwest.  Starting today, we’ll be giving away an item from a local company or Venti’s, and will provide you with a fitness challenge or nugget of information relating to living a physically actively lifestyle during winter.

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), being physically active is an important part in preventing heart disease, the nation’s No.1 killer.  To improve overall cardiovascular health, AHA suggests at least 150 minutes/week of moderate exercise or 75 minutes per week of vigorous exercise.  30 minutes, 5 times/week is an easy goal to remember.  You’ll even benefit if you divide your time into 2 or 3 segments of 10 to 15 minutes/day.  See infographic below for activity recommendations. 

This week’s giveaway is a $25 gift card to Life Source Natural Foods.  Simply click this link to comment on this photo and tell us your favorite winter fitness activity!  Winner will be selected randomly Monday, January 2nd.

We also want to see photos of you being active this winter!  Post a photo (viewable to the public so we can find it) of your fitness/outdoor activity and in the caption tag #ventiswinterchallenge.  At the end of the 13 weeks, we’ll randomly select a winner for a Venti’s gift card and swag pack.  One photo permitted per fitness/outdoor adventure, but you can post as many adventures as you want!  Snag a pic with the Venti’s swag in the photo for an additional entry.
