I am a high school student taking classes at Muskegon Community College and my weight training teacher assigned the Thrive ZP Challenge to our class. I focused on doing weekly workouts, but quickly discovered that I could use the app to help me stay organized and work on other aspects of my life. Now, I am focused on family time and saving money as well. I have a goal to move into my own place with a roommate this year, so saving is essential. Over the last several weeks, I have saved $700! 

  • I set a fit goal of 15,000 daily steps, plus cardio and weight training 3-5 times each week.
  • I stopped drinking soda and eating sugary foods and started making smoothies instead.
  • My mom, sister and I play cards and rent movies together to stay connected.

Before my challenge, I never really paid attention to my family. Now, my middle sister and I are really close. Plus, I’m taking the time to get to know my younger sister better and I am so much closer to my mom. That’s been the biggest surprise — how rewarding it is spending time with my family.
