The “Spring Forward Into Fitness Challenge” was an individual challenge where participants were asked to set a daily step goal, with a minimum requirement of 5,000 steps per day. Activities such as swimming, biking dancing, yard work, etc. were converted into steps that were added into their daily step count. If the goal was reached, participants were awarded points. In addition, participants earned points by logging how long they slept each night and could earn one point a day by posting on the discussion board. Participants competed against themselves and their daily goal. Once a participant reached a certain number of points, they qualified for a Visa Gift Card. The more points earned, the larger the gift card amount.
Overall, 71% of participants were able to meet their daily step goal consistently! In total, the participants walked over 97 million steps throughout this 6-week challenge. That is the equivalent of walking around the earth twice! They burned a total of 4,399,055 calories!
