Week 2 Results
The week 2 results have been tabulated for the WCA Group Health Trust (GHT) Fitness Challenge. Each week, every team that reports their total points by the deadline is entered in a random prize drawing. Click here to see which teams were chosen for week 2. The prizes for week 1 and 2 were sent to the team leader.


Be Diligent
Be diligent every week so you do not miss out on this opportunity! At the end of the challenge any team that has reported points all six weeks will be entered in a random prize drawing. If you missed the reporting deadline you can still submit your weekly points.

Send Us Your Action Photos
Grab your camera and get some pictures of your teammates. We are looking for action photos. The photos can be submitted by your team leader when they submit the team points or email them to Kelly Hageman. Submitted photos or comments may be used on our website, in social media posts or in printed materials promoting GHT and the fitness challenge.
For Your Health - Get Your ZZZ's In!
During week 4 of the GHT Fitness Challenge participants can earn extra points by practicing a healthy habit of getting an adequate night’s sleep. Earn extra points by getting 7-9 hours of sleep each day. 
 
Sleep is a vital component of every person's overall health and well-being. Unfortunately, we often neglect getting enough sleep. It is important because it enables the body to repair and get ready for another day. Getting adequate rest can have many benefits.

  • Skipping sleep is linked to higher body weight
  • Good sleepers tend to eat fewer calories
  • An ample amount of sleep can improve concentration and productivity
  • Poor sleepers have a greater risk of heart disease and stroke
  • Sleep affects glucose metabolism and type 2 diabetes risk
  • Poor sleep is linked to depression
  • Adequate sleep improves your immune function
 
Healthy Habits
"Keeping a food diary blew my mind when I reviewed it at the end of the week. I see where I need to focus," shared Traci Robinson from Sheboygan County. Practicing the weekly healthy habit not only earns you extra points, but may help you live a healthier lifestyle.

Get your extra points in with the following habits each week!
Week 3
Consume at least 64 oz. of water per day
Week 4
Sleep 7-9 hours per night
Week 5
Do a 5-10 minute warm-up and 5-10 minute cool down
Week 6
Minimum of 5 minutes of relaxation without interruption
Team Leader Reminders
Please remember all team scores are tracked by the team leader's name. It is very important that you enter your name exactly the same each week, along with the correct week you are reporting. For example, if you enter the team leader's name as Tom Jones for week 1, please do not enter Thomas Jones for week 2.

Tracking Your Points
All participants will record their activity for the week and then report to their team leader the totals. The team leader will then report the team's total points. 

Below are links to a tracker you can use to record your daily activity. To have a paper copy simply click below and print it. There is also an excel file if you would prefer to have an electronic tracker. This tracker is for your own use and is not turned in.



How Points Are Earned
Participants can earn points each day depending on the amount of time they spend doing a physical activity. Choose which category you achieved and record the corresponding points. For example, if you did a 55-minute workout you would report 3 points for that day.

1-30 minutes/day = 1 point
31-60 minutes/day = 3 points
61-120 minutes/day = 5 points
121 or more minutes/day = 7 points
