Fit in Feb challenge!
After the success of our 100km in May challenge last year, we are back for another month long challenge. The challenge is open for all pupils to take part, and even parents too! The challenge is a simple and effective way of improving your physical fitness levels, and a way of boosting your mental health. As we all know, exercise releases hormones known as endorphins. These are better known as our ‘happy hormones’.
This month long challenge is a point’s based challenge where individuals aim for one of 3 levels – Gold, Silver or Bronze. (See diagram in the gallery below).
How to collect points
30 minutes to 1 hour walk = 1 point
30 minute yoga or pilates session = 1 point
30 minutes of dancing = 2 points
30 minutes to 45 minute aerobic workout = 2 points
30 minutes bike ride = 2 points
30 minute run = 3 points
30 minute HIIT session = 3 points
1 hour bike ride = 3 points
Remember, the more activity you do, the more points you win yourself. Prizes will be awarded as incentives to Get Fit in February.
