    2019 Chorus.FM Wellness Challenges
    With the new year, a lot of us will be setting wellness goals for the year. One of the best ways to make sure you keep up with and achieve your goals is through accountability. So, for 2019 we will be running monthly wellness challenges for anyone who wants to participate. This will allow us to work on our goals together through friendly competitions and to keep each other active, engaged, and accountable.

    Current Challenge: March 2019 Challenge
    Dates: March 1 - 31, 2019
    Challenge: Active Time Challenge
    Rules: Participant with the highest active time at the end of the month is the winner.

    How to Participate:
    Anyone can request to join at anytime during the year. Participants are not required to participate in every challenge, but are encouraged to do so! To request to join this month's challenge, go to
    inKin . I'll approve you once I receive the request.

    The Challenges:
    The challenges will be ran through inKin, which has both Apple and Android apps and an online web portal. inKin allows participants to use a multitude of fitness tracker devices and apps to log their progress and various metrics related to the competitions and wellness goals. Participants who do not have a tracker device or use an app not supported by inKin can still manually enter their metrics into the web portal, so if you don't see your device or app supported, you can still participate!

    We will have a different challenge each month for the year. This allows all sorts of participants with different wellness goals, activity levels, and abilities to participate. You might do better during some challenges than you do others, but the most important part is that you're working towards your wellness goals.

    The metrics available for challenges are Steps, Distance, Calories Burned, and Active Time. These four metrics are tracked based on your fitness device/app or your manual entry. Challenge rules state that the person with the highest result at the end of the challenge is the winner. So for the challenges the person with the most steps, highest total distance, most calories burned, or highest cumulative activity time logged is the winner.

    Below is the schedule for the year (subject to change based on participants' desire).
    February: Calories Burned
    March: Activity Time
    April: Distance
    May: Steps
    June: Calories Burned
    July: Activity Time
    August: Distance
    September: Steps
    October: Distance
    November: Activity Time
    December: Calories Burned

    The winner of each month will get a $10 gift card from the merchant of their choice from me once the winner has been verified by inKin. In the event that I win, the $10 will be rolled over into the next months challenge until someone else wins and then the prize will reset to $10 for the following month's challenge again.

    I'm not sure this one is going to be accurate. It says I have 52 active minutes already. I swam for 25 minutes today and walked my dog which I guess is being counted as "active".
