What is this Daily Workout / Steps Challenge about? [NEW]

To encourage our Work Great Participants to continue working out and form healthy habits, Work Great on A Great Street now has a Daily Challenge that will reward EVERY workout you clock OR every 10,000 steps that you log in a day.

Clock a workout at any time of the day

OR

Clock 10,000 steps in one day

for ONE valid entry.

Can I submit both my workout and step log for the day?

Unfortunately, no. Daily Steps Challenge of 10k steps cannot be submitted on the same day as another Daily Workout Challenge. For participants who submit both, only ONE submission would be counted.

Example:

– Submission of 1 Daily Step Challenge of 10k steps and submission of 1 Run (1.5km) on the same day = ONE submission only

– Submission of 1 Daily Step Challenge of 10k steps and submission of 1 HIIT workout (elevated heart rates of 30 mins) on the same day = ONE submission only

– Submission of 1 Run (1.5km) and submission of 1 HIIT workout (elevated heart rates of 30 mins) on the same day = TWO submissions

– Submission of 1 Run (1.5km), submission of 1 Swim (1.5km) and submission of 1 HIIT workout (elevated heart rates of 30 mins) on the same day = THREE submissions

Can I participate in both of the activities?

Yes, you may choose to join in both activities within the same month, but you can only choose to submit for either the Steps Challenge or the Workout Challenge for each day.

What type of workouts can I do?

You can choose to run, swim, cycle, walk, do a HIIT session of your favourite workout on Youtube, dance or even go for a hike!
