Go for the gold

Asset 58

Overview

There is nothing wrong with a little healthy competition, and the Go For The Gold Challenge delivers just the right dose of it! Inspired by the ancient Greek games, this challenge takes participants on a historical journey to learn about and practice exercises that mimic moves of competitors in the games originally held in Olympia!

This challenge can be configured as an individual- or team-based program and run for two- to six weeks. Through weekly fun facts and engaging “how-to” videos, this challenge encourages participants to move like an Olympian! Wellable Points are earned by tracking physical activity and completing creative weekly exercises, each inspired by a different event that took place during the ancient games.

How are teams ranked?

Teams are ranked by the average number of Wellable Points for all members of a team. This means that teammates with zero Wellable Points during a challenge will lower the score of the entire team, which is why encouraging your teammates to stay active throughout the challenge is so important.
