Author collaborates with Crim organizers

FLINT — Author and Flint native Dr. Michelle Segar takes a close look at the science of motivation in her book “No Sweat: How the Simple Science of Motivation can Bring You a Lifetime of Fitness”, recently chosen as the No. 1 diet/exercise book in 2015 by USA Best Book Awards .

On Dec. 11, Segar spent some time with Crim Fitness Foundation staff and guests discussing how the science of motivation can be used to design programs, evaluation processes and events that inspire and encourage others to make lasting changes to their lives. In No Sweat, Dr. Segar walks readers through a four-point program to help identify what motivates them to remain healthy and active.

“Dr. Segar is going to help us look at community health from a new perspective. We want to find out how to help people tap into the motivation that’s within them,” said Gerry Myers, Crim Fitness Foundation CEO. “Programs and events are very important in terms of access to opportunity, but if the motivation is not there to begin with and to continue, then it all becomes a vicious cycle of beginning and failing.”

The Crim Fitness Foundation cultivates accessible, vibrant communities in Flint and Genesee County, encouraging people to lead healthy lifestyles with the integration of physical activity, healthy eating, and mindfulness into their daily lives. From the HealthPlus Crim Festival of Races with its legendary 10-Mile race, to school and summer youth programs, to advocating for green spaces and safe walking and biking pathways, the Crim helps residents be active and healthy all year long.
