I am doing March Member Madness this month at both of my locations. I would like to offer a variety of challenges and contests for our members. I have them ranging from simply liking us on facebook to a 1000 rep challenge. Any suggestions would be appreciated as I am just wanting to get our members involved.
I like to use any games that ‘partner’ people up and compete as a team. Team competition is infectious and fun! Design weekly challenges that tie to a specific fitness/exercise goal that you create for a specific week and keep cumulative points per team (to be fair, the games should be scored “relative” to the teams’ baseline measure – for example, pounds lost etc similar to the Biggest Loser; or can be simple ‘raw’ measures such as number of steps taken as a team per week – pedometer). I like that you’re looking for new ideas! It keeps your programming fresh, as well as the interest in your programs exciting.
