    Description:

    The goal of the challenge is simple: to accumulate at least 150 minutes of physical activity each week. 150 minutes is equal to an average of 20 minutes of exercise a day.

    Physical activity includes anything that requires moderate to active participation and is continuous for at least ten minutes.

    Duration: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter Season

    How to get started:

    Complete the Online Registration Form to get started. You do not need to re-register each season.

    Incentive: Submit the Exercise Tracking Logs each season and be entered into a quarterly drawing for 1 of 15 great prizes.

    Healthy Lifestyle Activity Points (HLAPs) are based on the total minutes you track each month. (minimum 600).

    How does the Program Work?

    The Seasonal Fitness Challenge is easy and energizing! The program runs quarterly and is divided into four seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall challenges. The more you move, the more you'll gain (in rewards that is).

    What forms of activity count?

    All activities wherein you are continuously moving, strengthening or stretching your body for at least ten consecutive minutes. Employee Wellness will send you weekly exercise tips to help keep you motivated.

    How do I earn Healthy Lifestyle Activity Points?

    Each day you are physically active, you will track your total minutes on the Exercise Tracking Logs. Your total minutes will be tallied and you will earn HLAP's based on your total minutes accumulated for each month.

    If you accumulate (per month):

    Can I track my Physical Activity Using a Different Log?

    Often time’s employees use their electronic fitness trackers like Fit-Bit or SparkTracker to record their physical activity throughout the month. All you need to do is transfer the monthly report from your activity tracker to Pima’s exercise logs to receive credit for participating.  You can enter the full month’s minutes into “Day 1” or you can enter it daily or weekly, whichever you prefer. 

    At the end of each season (three months), you will submit your Exercise Tracking Log which will be entered into a drawing to win a prize.

    How do I submit my Exercise Tracking Log?

    Review each of your logs for accuracy. There is a new portion at the bottom of the Exercise Tracking Log you may review and print for your records. Submit your completed logs at the end of each season. Please save the log using your EIN and Season as the title. 

    For example: 123456Spring.pdf
