Pop-Up Challenges are a great way to keep your group motivated and moving. And if you’re snowed in and suffering from wintertime blues, a Pop-Up Challenge is just the thing to help you stay focused on your February fitness goals. Here are a few ideas to get your group going this month!
Valentine Velocity Challenge
Timeframe: 2 days, February 14-15
Goal: Move more than your partner!
Keep your activity goals moving forward with this Valentine’s Day weekend partner challenge. Encourage your group members to get their significant other moving with them by creating their own free Friends & Family Group (here’s how) and challenging their partner. Face off with your sweetheart and see who can earn the most moves from Saturday to Sunday. The top mover earns bragging rights!
Timeframe: 1 week, February 16-22
Goal: More miles than your company’s leadership team!
In the Presidential Challenge, set a goal for your employees to average more miles than your company’s president and leadership! Starting on Presidents Day (February 16), set up a week-long challenge for your group and create two subgroups – one with your company’s management team, and one for employees. At the end of the week, see which team has the highest average miles. If employees come out on top, reward them with a “Fitness Friday” day (our athletic take on “Casual Friday”), an early-release day, or an hour of paid time off.
Timeframe: 5 days, February 23-27
Goal: 50,000 steps
February is National Heart Month and what better way to celebrate than with a Heart-Pumping Challenge! Get your heart rate up with an active work week, moving 10,000 steps a day Monday through Friday. Reach the goal and you’ll be meeting the American Heart Association’s activity recommendations for a healthy heart! Reward participants who reach the 50,000 step goal with a red accessory band.
