Healthy Holiday Challenge
University of Idaho students, faculty and staff can join the Healthy Holiday Challenge and keep the holiday weight gain and stress at bay this year! Our goal is to help you stay consistent with your workouts during a very busy and calorie-filled time of year.
This 7-week challenge runs from Nov. 22 to Jan. 9.
About the Healthy Holiday Challenge
Snowflakes - I try to workout but this challenge will encourage me to stay active.
Mistletoe - I workout to see my friends and to stay healthy.
Blizzards - I am competitive and a weekday warrior with my workouts.
Teams can consist of three to six people. Designate a team captain and team captains will register team members (name and email address). Once the team has registered, the team captain will send members a link to log their weekly activity.
Stay active. It's that simple. As long as you are movin' and shakin', it counts.
To log daily activity, remember that you get one point per 15 consecutive minutes of physical activity (stretching, running, biking, yoga, shoveling snow, yard work, walking your dog, etc). A maximum of 8 points per day is allowed. Each week will have up to 3 bonus points up for grabs.
Weekly points need to be submitted by Tuesday at Noon (PST).
The Winning team in each category will be given a t-shirt provided by the VandalStore.
Weekly drawings for are for water bottles.
The Grand Prize Winner (random individual drawing) will receive a Fitbit Inspire, $50 Visa gift card and healthy living cook book. To be entered into the drawing, participants must log one activity for each week. Grand prizes are donated by Blue Cross of Idaho
The best prize of all is getting your new year off to a healthy start.
