Community Challenge

Living It Up Community Challenge

Do you need an extra bit of encouragement when it comes to exercise? Perhaps you're looking for a way to have more fun when it comes to keeping fit? Whatever your reason, if you're looking for some inspiration, why not get a team together to try and tackle a Community Challenge.

What’s a Community Challenge?

Community Challenges are a fun way to get moving. The interactive element means that you can track your progress and work out what you need to do to reach your goal, while being part of a group means that you can support each other to reach your targets.

You can find some of our active challenges in our Community Challenge section. The challenges sit online but it's your day to day activity at home that you can log to help you complete your online challenge.

Who is in your Community is up to you: Living it Up members, friends, family, neighbours; why not get your grandkids involved when they come to stay?

How do I start a Challenge?

To create your own Community Challenge, you just need to get in touch with our team at Living It Up (there are contact details at the end of this article) and we’ll set it all up for you. It couldn't be easier.

And it's not just about walking or running: One of the best bits about the Community Challenge is that you can get creative about the way you do it. So, if you’re a gardener at heart and want some help with your weeding and planting, you can set up a Challenge to do just that. Or if swimming's your thing, why not get together and splash around in your local pool to get closer to your target.

Whatever your plan, let us know what you’d like to do and we’ll set up a Community Challenge that's perfect for you.

How does it work?

When you take part, you’ll be able to date the exercise that you do and log the type of activity, the distance/progress that was made and how long this took. If you're a fan of charts, we've even got that option covered, so you can monitor your team's progress that way too.

To get started, you can either visit our Community Challenge section or you can send an email to hello@livingitup.org.uk with a little bit of information about the type of Challenge you’d like to try.
