With the start of a new year, many residents living in your Florida HOA community are resolving to live a healthier lifestyle in 2018. Did you know that only 8 percent of people actually keep the resolutions that they make at the start of the year? People that share their new year’s resolutions with their support group are much more likely to reach their goals. Your HOA can help residents keep their commitment to living a healthier lifestyle in 2018 by organizing community clubs and events that support this goal.
Our Florida residential association management company suggests the following ideas for helping residents in your community to create healthy habits in the new year:
- Start a running club.
Running is quickly becoming the most popular way that people choose to exercise today. Florida residents benefit from having an abundance of flat trails to run, which helps to make the experience more enjoyable.
Starting a running club in your HOA community will create a sense of camaraderie and help to encourage healthy habits. The club will also serve as an accountability group to help members stick with their commitment to run more in 2018. Our residential association management company suggests opening the group to runners of all skill levels.
- Form a healthy dinner club.
Food has a way of bringing people together, and starting a dinner club in your HOA community is an exciting way for residents to meet each other. Making healthy eating the premise of your dinner club, residents will look forward to gathering for monthly dinners and gain inspiration from the healthy dishes.
You can choose to host your dinner club get-togethers in the HOA common areas (community clubhouse, picnic area, etc) or have each member sign up to host a meal at his or her home.
- Start a neighborhood bootcamp.
Make it convenient for residents to get a good workout without leaving your HOA community by starting a neighborhood bootcamp. If you have enough residents that would like to participate in a bootcamp, you could hire a professional bootcamp coach to come to your neighborhood. Bootcamp will provide your residents with a full-body workout and have them looking their best by pool season.
- Create a garden club.
Dedicate an HOA common area to become a community garden. Residents that would like to join the garden club would all be responsible for maintaining the garden. Planting vegetables and hearty greens would allow residents to cook up their very own farm-to-table meals, which would contribute to living a healthier lifestyle.
