Effort Points Challenges

Start: Monday 23rd April
How long are they for: 12 weeks
Cost: Just £25 or FREE if you refer 5 people (you get £5 commission per person). Just send a message from your account saying who you've referred. 

Everyone's a winner! Every participant who meets the guidelines for exercise wins a V-Healthy T-Shirt or medal. It's simple, you just have to be in the red or yellow zones for 75 minutes/week OR 150 minutes in the blue, green, yellow or red zones every week (most people clock this up by walking around the house & house chores eg cleaning).

What you need: A Heart Rate Monitor or Fitness Tracker that will connect to a smart watch or phone (Garmin, Wahoo, Suunto, Fitbit, Tom Tom, Polar, SRM, PC8, MIO, Microsoft Band, Soleus, Timex, Bryton, Sigma, Lezyne or Myzone). To receive £50 off the latest Myzone Heart Rate Monitor, just follow the link 
 
How it works:

The V-Healthy Effort Points Challenge works by collecting your heart rate data after you have done an activity. You're then assigned points according to the different heart rate zones you work in. Your data is uploaded to your personal profile page on this website where you can see your results, what position you're in and loads more.

Anyone can win!

As it takes in to consideration your maximum heart rate, it doesn't matter how fit you are, it's all about effort. The more you put in, the more points you get.

For example, someone new to running (person A) goes for a 10 minute run with someone who has been running for years (person B). Person A has to work harder/put in more effort than person B to keep the same pace. Person A's heart rate is 80%+ of their maximum heart rate so gets 60 points. Person B's heart rate is 60-69% of their maximum heart rate so gets 20 points. Person B needs to run faster or for longer to get 60 points. See points chart below for more information


 



Points Chart


* You're only allowed to upload 6 days of activity/week & you get 6 points for both the red & yellow zones to ensure you don't over-exert yourself.



It's as easy as 1, 2, 3...4!
