Element 1 – Get Active
Anyone from the organisation can join the challenge and earn points for the exercise they do each week. Aiming to work towards the CMO physical activity guidelines; 1 x point will be earned for every minute of moderate exercise done and 2 x points for every minute of high intensity exercise done.
We provide a simple spreadsheet for each participant to log their minutes of physical activity on a daily and weekly basis for a period of 12 weeks.
This is an opportunity to work as a team, inspire and motivate each other with ideas on how to build more physical activity into your working week and get into some health workplace habits like taking active lunch breaks!
We ask you to appoint a team champion to motivate encourage and spur the team on and to make sure everyone logs their exercise each week and talk about successes and challenges.
