Last year, you helped us be recognized as one of the healthiest places to work in the Bluegrass, and to take home the Diamond Award for Innovations in Worksite Wellness from its second Bluegrass Wellness at Work (BWW) program. Help us again this year!
We’re ready and set to compete again in this year’s Agency Fitness Challenge where we will compete against other agencies in the bluegrass. Here is how it works.
Agency Fitness Challenge
A six-week fitness challenge to encourage employees to get moving. Earn a point each time you complete fifteen (15) minutes of exercise of any type; challenge starts on June 20 and ends August 8, with recognitions to be given August 16 at TBA. Awards will be given to winners of the Fitness Challenge in the small (>25 employees), medium (25-99 employees) and large (100+ employees) business categories.
How can I help win the big award?
Keep track of your ACTIVITY over the next seven weeks; give yourself 1 point for every 15 minutes you activity during or outside of work.
You can count exercise/points accumulated June 20-August 8
How do I log my points?
To streamline the participation in the challenge, Bluegrass Wellness at Work has created a basic app so all participants can track their own activity. The app is available for iOS via the iTunes store, Android via Google Play and also accessible directly from a desktop, laptop or mobile browser at https://bluegrasswellnessatwork.org/app
Log into the app and add your points at your convenience: your USER NAME will be your work email address, and your PASSWORD will be Summer2015.
You will not be able to enter the app or the website to log in points until June 20th.
Once inside your app. On the left hand side click the add activity icon. Click on the date you completed your activity on the calendar. Type your activity starting time and select the duration and activity from the drop down menu. Then click save and you are done
PLEASE NOTE: YOU DO NOT CURRENTLY HAVE TO BE ENROLLED IN LFCHD’S WORKSITE WELLNESS PROGRAM IN ORDER TO LOG POINTS IN THE BWW CHALLENGE.
