CHALLENGE RULES - How to record your movement
1) The tracking and live leaderboard will be on Sodisp. The leaderboard will be based on the number of days you achieve your daily goal. If you streak all 31 days you're guaranteed to be in 1st place. The more days you achieve your goal, the higher your ranking.
2) How to earn your daily badge: Workout the minimum number of minutes per day to earn the daily badge. Any type of exercise qualifies, from walking, yoga, spinning, paddling, elliptical, cycling, rowing, skiing to running. If you're *exercising* and moving with intention, then it counts.
3) How to earn the streak badges: In order to streak the days together you must record your minimum number of minutes everyday. You can NOT miss a day. If you miss a day your streak will reset. However, you are still in the leaderboard for the overall number of days you workout in January.
3) Manual and automatic posting to the leaderboard. You can manually upload your workout times on your Sodisp profile as well as sync your Garmin, Strava, Fitbit, Coros, Polar and Suunto device.

What type of workouts count towards my total?
Any workout that you complete with the *intention* of exercising will count. For example, walking, jogging, hiking, running, cycling, spinning, skiing, rowing, paddling, swimming, yoga, elliptical, walking the dog, etc. will all count. Mowing the lawn, raking leaves, grocery shopping, vacuuming, cooking dinner, taking the trash out, etc. do NOT count. The key word is the workout must be done *intentionally* with the purpose of exercising.
I wear a Fitbit all day long and it records the miles I do when I’m walking around the office and at home. Can I count this time towards my goal?
No, the time accumulated during your daily routine or work routine do not count. [Example: walking from the couch to the refrigerator and then back to the couch does not count]
Can I break up the minimum number of minutes during the day?
Yes, if you go out for three 10 minute walks during the day those will qualify for 30 minutes of exercising and therefore satisfy the daily minimum.
I just signed up, will we be getting an update with additional details?
Yes, we will be emailing out an Athlete Update with the details for how to create and verify your Sodisp account.
