When it comes to scheduling a workout, Tuesday and Wednesday were the most active (with Monday close behind). I think we can all admit starting off the week on the right foot is a definite mood booster (as well as working off indulgent weekends). The least active day was Friday.
Are you curious where your other challengers are logging their workouts? Looking at registered contenders – Austin, New York, and San Diego are tied for the top spot. Rounding out the top 10 locations are Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Houston, Boston, Phoenix and Washington.
There are a majority of female participants (68% vs. 32% male), with the main age group falling in the [35- 44 yr.] bracket. Our challenge encompasses people of all ages though – so don’t get discouraged – the more, the merrier. To help you stay focused, we have included a few tips below:
- Incorporate activity into your daily routine: Workouts don’t always have to be a run in the park – track all of your activity, including walking the dog, taking the stairs at work, or raking the leaves in your backyard.
- Make it social: People are more likely to say, “yes” to a workout when asked by a friend or colleague. Put a little friendly pressure on this holiday season.
- Keep a log: The beauty of our challenge is the ease in which you can see your success. Tracking and monitoring progress helps people stay on track.
