We’re still working on fun new challenges and competitions for 2021. Here are the challenges we have planned so far.
Steps Challenge (through August 31, 2021)
Walk your way to a healthier you. Any form of physical activity counts — running, cycling, swimming, rowing, skiing or dancing — whatever keeps you moving. You can manually input your steps or link a device for easier step tracking.
- Complete 1 million steps to earn 10 wellness points. A good weekly goal is 30,000 steps.
- Complete 2 million steps to earn an additional 10 wellness points. A good weekly goal is 70,000 steps.
Strength Training Challenge (through August 31, 2021)
Strength training specializes in the use of resistance. You can begin with just your body weight. Aim for a balance between movements that feel like pulling and ones that feel like pushing. Check out the workout videos in the Resources section of the wellness website to get you started. You’ll earn 15 wellness points for tracking the time you spend on strength training for 30 days. A good weekly goal is one hour of strength training.
Fruits and Vegetables Challenge (through August 31, 2021)
Fruits and veggies are naturally low in calories and may help reduce the risk of many diseases, including heart disease, high blood pressure and some cancers. Track your fruit and vegetable intake for 30 days to earn 15 wellness points. A good goal is 35 servings per week.
