How do I participate?

Important things to note:

*There is currently only an app developed for apple users, but android users can still access everything on the website!

**Count.it works with a variety of fitness trackers/apps, Including Fitbit, Garmin, Misfit, Apple watch, Google Fit, RunKeeper, Strava, and Apple Health

Challenge Guidelines

  • Participants should only submit steps once – they are not permitted to track the same steps using multiple trackers (e.g. fitbit & apple health) to receive points twice. 
  • No shaking your trackers to get extra steps
  • Keep it fair and friendly – If you choose to use the chat function on count.it, please abide by the following guidelines:
    • Do not verbally abuse, attack, embarrass, or threaten anyone else in the chat room, no matter what they might say to you. 
    • Do not use obscene, offensive, or sexually explicit language. 
    • Do not use inappropriate or offensive usernames 

Disclaimer

Before you dive into an activity program, be aware that you can still suffer from injury or overexertion if you have high health risks. We suggest completing a PAR-Q before beginning.

If any of these apply to you, be sure to check with your doctor before beginning any form of physical activity. Participation in the Thunderwolves Activity Challenge is completely voluntary. By signing up, I agree that I have fully read and understand the contest rules in which a participant will engage, and I am physically capable of participating in the challenge. I acknowledge that some personal information, such as number of steps walked per day, collected during the process of this contest may be shared for the purpose of measuring progress and determining winners, and I consent to the sharing of this information.
