Community Step Challenge

Having a more active workplace or community can have so many more benefits beyond the obvious health impacts. At Big Team Challenge our goal is to help you create your own exercise challenge and change your participants' mindset about keeping active and improving their quality of life.

A private step challenge for your community

Because every community is unique, with different target age groups, cultures and activity levels, we've kept our system as customisable as possible to help you achieve your goals.

Our team challenges allow you to create exactly what need.

Try Our Demo

Sometimes it's just better to see things with your own eyes! That's why we've created a little team challenge demo for customers to try.

It replicates a team vs. team challenge already in progress, so you'll be engaging in the same way your own participants will be when you launch yours.

What can your participants get from the team challenge?

After all, this only works if your community is truly motivated by the challenge and can easily engage with it. We've spent 4 years developing this system so it works as seamlessly as possible.

After you initially tell your participants about the team fitness challenge and where to sign up, you can sit back and watch the rest unfold.

1. Easy Sign Up

Using the app, or your newly-set up challenge website, participants can sign up using only their email, name and whatever password they choose.

2. Creating Teams

Once they are on the system, your participants can create teams and invite other users to join.

3. Step count apps, fitbit syncing, and more!

Once in a team, users can log their activity via the website and apps or they can sync their smart devices such as Fitbit, Garmin, Google Fit and Apple Health.

That's it, that's all that's required of them. Three simple steps and they can be up and moving in a few minutes!

You have participants in various regions or distinct groups?

Introducing leaderboard segments!

Now you can have multiple leaderboards for different areas of your community. Here's some examples of how it might work for you...

Three leaderboards, one for Glasgow branches, one for New York branches and one global leaderboard for the entire company
You want to split your teams by town or region

Each team can be assigned to a specific region. They'll see a leaderboard with the other teams in their region as well as the global leaderboard.

two leaderboards, one for Sales and one for Management
You want to split leaderboards between health staff, council workers and private businesses

Promote friendly competition between participants in the same sector by grouping them into separate leaderboards.

Users separated into groups of 2,3 and 4
You want to run a challenge for schools and for each to have their own leaderboard

Teams from each school can compete against each other, allowing you to award prizes to the top teams from each school.
