Want to start the year off sun kissed with a cocktail in hand & ready to take on the world?! The Warm Up Fitness Challenge is calling your name! We can all use extra motivation to stay active right now, & the new year ahead of us is the perfect time to make your fitness goals a reality! Put together a team of up to eight people & get ready to motivate & inspire one another as you log as many active minutes as you can during the month! You’ll earn virtual badges, a beach towel, & cool swag as you virtually travel to a variety of tropical destinations. Don’t forget the SPF!
As you travel from one sunny beach to another, you will have the opportunity to earn a combination of individual & team virtual badges that will enhance your tropical experience & keep you motivated.
An active minute is an intentional effort to exercise, either moderately or vigorously. This can include activities such as running, walking, hiking, cycling, yoga, a fitness class/workout, walking the dog, lifting weights, rollerblading, jumping rope, dance, swimming, kickboxing, etc.
SOLO: 700 Active Minutes

Awards will be given to the team that reaches the active minutes goal the fastest as well as to the team that logs the most minutes in a month in each of the divisions, which includes the 8-person team and solo divisions.
Our goal is to start mailing Wave 1 SWAG in early February and Wave 2 SWAG in early March. Any updates to this timeline will be posted here.
