Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez

Doral! Let’s all get healthier, body and mind, with the “Step Up Your Health, Doral!” Mayor’s Wellness Challenge!

Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez invites residents and members of the community to join the “Step Up Your Health, Doral” Wellness Initiative! Mayor Bermudez kicked off the challenge by undergoing a health screening at West Kendall Baptist Hospital’s Healthy Hub, who along with the Baptist Outpatient services, will serve as clinical partners for the ambitious program.

“The goal is for citizens of all ages, capabilities and fitness levels to adopt a healthier lifestyle for both the body and mind,” stated Mayor Bermudez. “I encourage the community to take on this challenge and help Doral become the City of a Billion Steps by increasing their activity and tracking those steps.”

The City is developing programs, collaborating with local businesses and organizations to provide registered participants with services that will include health screenings, seminars, fitness classes, and more.

5 Reasons of Why Teaching Life Skills in Schools is so Crucial

By Gaby Casanas, LMFT

(Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Life Coach for Children and Families, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Wellness Coach, CEO and Camp Director of Camp Unbeatables at Doral)

There is a need to create suitable and innovative mass programs for children that help to reduce the exponential increment of major problems in our youth, such as: obesity, drugs, bullying, anxiety, depression, suicide, school drop-outs, early pregnancy, sexually transmitted disorders, among others.

Schools, after school programs or children’s extracurriculares activities are places where kids can benefit from an effective and professional program that offers them concrete tools to overcome their daily challenges, and increase their probabilities of success in their present and future lives.

Life Skills Training for children can help in 5 important ways:

It is important to realize that academic preparation is something that our kids can get anytime, but acquiring tools to deal with their daily challenges is something that the sooner they get them, the better results they will get in life!

  1. Life Skills Training helps kids to get in touch with their inner beings and understand their true power.
  2. Life Skills Training teaches kids in how to prioritize their values in such a technological and social media era.
  3. Life Skills Training orients kids on what their life purpose might be.
  4. Life Skills Training instructs kids in how to set goals to achieve the things they want in life.
  5. Life Skills Training assists parents, schools and the society by providing kids with effective tools to be successful in an increasingly complex society.

It is important to realize that academic preparation is something that our kids can get anytime, but acquiring tools to deal with their daily challenges is something that the sooner they get them, the better results they will get in life!

Rilion Gracie

Rilion Gracie

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a grappling-based martial art whose central theme is the skill of controlling a resisting opponent in ways that force him to submit. Due to the fact that control is generally easier on the ground than in a standing position, much of the technique of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is centered round the skill of taking an opponent down to the ground and wrestling for dominant control positions from where the opponent can be rendered harmless.

To control and overcome greater size, strength and aggression with lesser size and strength is the keynote of the sport. This is done by utilizing superior leverage, grip and position upon your opponent. Students of the sport gain a deep understanding of the workings and limits of the human body.

Step Up Doral at a glance

This guide describes the Step Up Doral challenge app.

Step Up Doral Guide

How it works

The app tracks your steps from your smartphone or connected wearable and displays the sum of the steps of all the competitors on the dashboard.

There are different ways for step tracking and the options depend on the platform you’re using.

Tracking your steps

There are several platforms that collect and store health data, and each stores it in their respective cloud. Step Up allows you to choose the platform you want to use to track your steps:

  • if you’re using an iPhone, you can track your steps using your iPhone or any Health connected wearable by selecting the Apple Health option. Note that you will have to give Step Up access to your health data either when prompted or by going into your settings and giving Step Up access to Health.
  • if you’re using a Google Fit connected device or wearable to track your steps, you can connect to your step data in Google Fit by selecting it. The Google Fit option can also be used with devices or wearables that store their data in Samsung Health by installing an app on your smartphone that transfers the step data from Samsung Health to Google Fit. You can find an app that does this function by searching for ‘transfer health data’ apps in the Google play store.
  • if you’re using a Fitbit wearable, you can choose the Fitbit option to have Step Up use that data for your step counts.

Note that if you change tracking methods, you will need to provide the credentials for the specific platform you selected (Apple Health, Google Fit, or Fitbit) so that Step Up can download your steps.
