About the Event

How it works

You will select 3 exercises from the list below to work on and measure for a score throughout the competition. The goal is to improve your score in each exercise. (The more you practice, the more you will improve!) You can find full instructions about how the scoring works for each individual exercise by viewing our how-to handbook:

You will submit your scores during the first week of the challenge, then during week 4 or 5 (halfway), and again at the end of the season (week 9 or 10). Medals will be awarded based on how much you improved your scores.

We are working with the UVM Physical Therapy program to help you perform your best in this challenge. The physical therapy students will help you collect your scores via Zoom and give you tips on how to improve!
