ShamrockMedalWhat are your goals for 2022? Whatever it is, let's tackle it together.  Sign up for the Shamrock Shape Up and log 1,000 minutes of any activity in 45 days to earn a custom medal!  Start making progress on something you want to improve all year long. We'll be right there with you.  All participants receive a commemorative shirt just for signing up!  Plus, for every 500 minutes logged (up to 2,500 minutes), your name will be entered into our raffle for prizes at the end.

The challenge is simple and doesn’t require any subscriptions, calorie counting, or weight loss: can you stay active for a total of 1,000 minutes in 45 days? You can walk, bike, run, hike, join an online workout, hit the gym, and so much more- just get moving!  All GPS and manual (including indoor) activities will count towards this challenge. There is no minimum time per activity.  All moderate to intense physical activity counts towards your total- and every minute counts!

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Anybody that registers!  All ages can get involved.  The benefit of the virtual experience is that we can all come together for the challenge no matter where you are.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE?

Sign up for the Shamrock Shape Up online for only $17.  Before the Challenge starts, you’ll receive a link to join our club in STRAVA.  This is an app that will allow you to track your progress, connect with the rest of our group, post photos, and more.  At the end of the campaign, we will total up all of your combined minutes to see if you reached the goal, plus we will see how far we went as a group!

WHEN DOES THE CHALLENGE START?

The challenge will begin on February 1 and concludes 45 days later on March 17 (on St. Patrick’s Day, of course!).

REWARDS

  • Participants will get a commemorative shirt just for registering!
  • At the end of the challenge, medals will be distributed to those that successfully complete the 1,000 minutes of activity.
  • Earn raffle tickets for every 500 minutes of activity along the way.  The more minutes you log- the more chances you have to win (up to 2,500 minutes).

WHY PARTICIPATE?

Besides the awesome swag you can receive, there are many reasons to sign up for our group challenge.

  • It gives purpose to working out:  If you have a purpose, you have a much better chance at sticking with something long enough to see results. You have a specific date range or specific goal that you’re committed to and are able to keep that in your mind when you want to skip workouts.
  • It's better together:  Solo fitness can get a little boring and it can be hard to connect with other enthusiasts during the uncertainties of the pandemic.  Having a team where everyone is on the same journey is exciting and fun. You get accountability and support and you get to give accountability and support. Both build momentum and keep you excited about your fitness.
  • More manageable:  Instead of thinking about the lifelong journey of exercise, challenges have you micro-manage your fitness into an easy goal.
  • You have a plan:  No subscriptions or counting calories with this challenge and the goal is simple!  Easy to follow challenges are typically more successful with people following through.
  • Get results:  If you have been working out, but not seeing any changes or getting bored, it is time to add something new.  Adding extra movement, exercise, or a new CHALLENGE could just be what it takes to drive bigger and better results.

ADDITIONAL CHALLENGE INFOshamrock logo
