Aaron commented on Health for Social Good

Really good find. Having a goal that supports a larger good is a great way to build community and sustain motivation. Reminds me of initiatives such as Team in Training supporting Leukemia and Lymphoma or the Hero Workouts at CrossFit that honor fallen soldiers/police officers.

Glad to see the emphasis on community in this challenge. This is especially important, particularly in the long run as community builds accountability and accountability breeds consistency.

Aaron commented on Compete with Coworkers to be the Biggest Loser

Good stuff. Offering challenges is a great way to build that community, create momentum, and gain accountability.

To be more all-inclusive challenges could accommodate various measures of health. Performance measures such as strength (e.g. squat x lbs.), endurance (e.g. run a 5K), function (e.g. complete a pull-up); or aesthetic measures such as lose x lbs or a new body fat goal.
