Activity Challenge questions

The JUMP into FALL Activity Challenge is a way for Guelph and surrounding area residents to improve their mental and physical health, especially during these difficult times. This friendly competition was created to encourage community members of all ages, local businesses, organizations, and groups to be more active and lead a healthier lifestyle.

You can start to submit activity minutes on Monday, September 20th. 

Yes! You can continue to enter Activity Minutes on the weekend (Saturday/Sunday). The Activity Minute button won’t be disabled until Friday, October 8th at 12am (midnight), when the challenge is officially over. So keep entering those minutes of activity!

We ask that participants count minutes that are set aside as dedicated activity minutes (doing a specific exercise) compared to activities of daily living (such as walking for a job).

5 categories of Activity include:
  • Aerobic Exercise
  • Balance Exercise
  • Flexibility Exercise
  • Mental Health/Mindfulness Exercise
  • Resistance Exercise

Full descriptions of these exercises can be found on your profile page (at the bottom of the page).

Teams can earn bonus points by completing the Daily Challenges and Weekly Video Challenges (located on your profile page on the FHT to Move website). These bonus points are added to the team’s score and are not averaged.

The Daily and Weekly Video Challenges consist of a variety of different activities to complete. Examples of some of the activities include physical exercise challenges, creating self-care lists, eating healthy snacks and more! All family members are encouraged to participate.

The Daily and Weekly Video Challenges are not mandatory. Only if your team wants to earn bonus points.

Daily Challenges are posted Monday-Friday, 100 points each. Your team will be asked to submit a photo, short video or a list.

Weekly Video Challenges are posted Monday morning, 500 points each. Your team will be asked to submit a video for each challenge.

The Daily and Weekly Video Challenges are not mandatory. Only if your team wants to earn bonus points.
