The 2012 BizicallyFIT Health Challenge offers Minnesotans a way to kick off 2012 with some healthy competition. Together, teams of coworkers, friends and family will earn points for healthy behaviors like dropping extra pounds, physical activity, and healthy eating choices. Teams from businesses, community groups and families all over Minnesota will compete for real-time rankings and virtual trophies.
Sign up for the challenge! Registration is now open to anyone who lives or works in Minnesota, age 18 and older. The Challenge runs twelve weeks, from February 13 to May 4, 2012. Please spread the word!
How It Works:

- Competitors follow the online Leaderboard for rankings and bragging rights
- Virtual trophies are awarded to top scoring teams

Team Up to Shape Up
The 2012 BizicallyFIT Health Challenge is the first step towards a lifetime of good health. This challenge offers three core metrics: pedometer steps, exercise minutes and weight loss percentage. Begin by registering as a team captain and invite people to join your team! Teams can range in size from 1 to 11. (Teams must have at least 5 members to be eligible for overall awards or to be listed on the leaderboard.) New this year, you’ll be able to create mini-challenges and more easily interact with team members and rival teams!
Network with Others
Create your online profile to get the most out of this socially networked wellness program. Here, you can select from a variety of activities and interests, and set personal health goals. Be sure to upload your photo and contact information so others can invite you to mini-challenges and conversations during the competition! Concerned about privacy? With our privacy controls, you determine which information about you is visible to people in the network.
