 The Big Summer Shape Up - Wellness Challenge 2021 is here to help promote health oriented education, weight loss fun, and opportunities to get more fit! We also hope that this activity will create a little community among challenge participants to help us make more connections with each other in the in-house community.

The Big Summer Shape Up challenge began on Monday May 10th and will run for 12 weeks. Challenge participants who are interested will be able to track their steps, amount of weight lost, and waters consumed . The top three steps and weight lost challenge winners will be given a prize!

  • $150 to 1st Place Weight Loss Winner by Percentage
  • $100 to 2nd Place Weight Loss Winner by Percentage
  • $50 to 3rd Place Weight Loss Winner by Percentage
  • $150 to 1st Place Steps Challenge
  • $100 to 2nd Place Steps Challenge
  • $50 to 3rd Place Steps Challenge

In addition to the prizes, we may provide health oriented educational meetings during the 12 week challenge to give us all a little education on wellness. We will also have some motivation and check in meetings, too. Most of these meetings will be Zoom meetings. If things continue to open up we may be able to get together for a few healthy activities.

The challenge utilizes the BetterTogether App to track each challenge participant’s progress.

This Big Summer Shape Up - Wellness Challenge of 2021 is intended to be fun, easy going, and something different - that hopefully will give us in-house folks something to do that’s healthy and get us ready for Summer! It’s for fitness beginners and all levels of experience. This program is designed to be uplifting, positive, and a way for us to connect with one another.
