Its a Fitbit Challenge Party!

Its a Fitbit Challenge Party! This month you will be invited to participate in many Fitbit Challenges!

The idea behind Fitbit Challenges is to provide a competitive environment to help motivate everyone to achieve their personal activity goals.  We’ve setup the various NIS challenge categories below to allow you to get involved in challenges with people who have similar activity levels, making it easier to be competitive in each challenge.  When a challenge is created, you will get an invitation to one of the following groups based on your average steps at the end of the previous month:

  • Walk in the Park  – Average Steps Up to  7,000
  • Hit Your Stride – Average Steps 7,001 – 10,000
  • Movers and Shakers – Average Steps 10,001 – 15,000
  • Power Walkers – Average Steps 15,001 and up

Although the challenges are designed to be competitive, they’re also very supportive.  There are buttons for Cheer, Taunt and Message in the application, and it’s fun to use them to give people a boost during challenges.  You can also message the challenge group chat, and as positions in the challenge change, messages are posted to that group chat as well.

Here are the challenges currently available:

  • Workweek Hustle – total steps Monday through Friday
  • Daily Showdown – total steps in a day
  • Weekend Warrior – total steps Saturday and Sunday
  • Goal Day – achieve your step goal for the day

Challenges add a fun, engaging aspect to the Fitbit ecosystem.  If you haven’t gotten involved in a one yet, please consider trying it!

Please accept the friend request from Walk in the Park, Hit Your Stride, Movers and Shakers and Power Walkers and we will get this Challenge Party started!

* Challenges can currently only be created and participated in by people with the iOS or Android Fitbit app on their smartphones, or with the Windows 10 Fitbit app on their computers.
