KTL’s 60 Days Exercise Challenge 2022
Following on from the 2021 KTL steps challenge, which was a great success with impressive results and inspiring participation from across the business. This year we are excited to announce a - 60 Days Exercise Challenge running from the 17th January to the 17th March 2022 and we are inviting all staff to participate and join us!
What is the challenge?
Get out the door for some fresh air - walk, jog, slog (slow jog), bike or run a minimum of 2km each day or 20 minutes for 60 days. It makes everyone feel good. It’s a good opportunity to disconnect from the news and social media as well. An important part of this challenge is consistency; forming a new habit by doing some form of exercise every day will have long-term positive benefits.
How do I join?
Simply submit your name to Claire Scally to participate. She will assign you a number, which will be yours for the challenge and will be used to enter the prize draw.
What are the prizes?
There are five prizes of €100/£100 cash vouchers up for grabs. Participation in the full 60 Days challenge is required to enter the prize draw. Please see the small print below for more details. The cash vouchers can be used to go on a hotel break, have afternoon tea with a friend, go on a trip to the Zoo with the family, or even towards new fitness gear!
How do I track my exercise?
You can track your distance, duration in several ways, including:
A wearable fitness tracker (such as a Fitbit/Apple Watch)
Also, by downloading an app such as Map My Walk.
Get as much exercise as you can!
Lunch hour - use your lunch hour to get in a power-walk or use the time to walk/jog to complete your errands.
Walk the dog – a walk can make a dog and their owner/family very happy – schedule this into your daily exercise plan morning, afternoon or evening.
Get fit with family and friends - when a family member or friend suggests getting together propose a walk-and-talk catch-up or a game of tennis or golf.
