Let’s be honest: The best part of fall is the leaves.
As summer’s lush greens give way to russet, gold and flaming orange, you’ve got a perfect backdrop for hitting the outdoors. And if the colors don’t shift much in your neck of the woods, there’s always the crisp fall air.
To make the most of the fall season, and get outdoors before winter hits, we’ve got three of our favorite fitness challenge ideas. Inspire employees to get outside by offering points in your wellness program for getting out and sharing their experiences.
3 fitness challenge ideas to make the most of fall
1. Take a hike
The mountains are calling, and we must go. If the hills are alive with color in your area, reward employees who hit the trails to get up-close-and-personal with the fall splendor. Websites like EveryTrail and Trails offer recommendations by location.
2. Tree trek
There’s nothing like crunching leaves under your feet on a fall run or walk. Have employees record their steps with an activity tracker – and even post pics from their favorite outing. To stir up competition, establish a unique hashtag for your company and encourage employees to post their pics on Instagram or Twitter under the hashtag.
3. One last paddle
Summer may be over, but the temps in most places are still comfortable enough for some water action (in most places). See how many employees can squeeze in a few final strokes in a kayak, canoe or on a paddleboard. Research top places in your area and email employees letting them know where they can go. You may even be able to negotiate late-season discounts for your company!
