About The Challenge

Challenge Yourself

Use our Activity Log to record your levels of sport, physical activity and active travel online and compete with other workplaces at the same time. You can log activities all year round for your own records, and many CSPs will be organising mini logging challenges across the year.

Challenge Your Colleagues

Our County Sports Partnerships organise a Competition Programme across a variety of sports for you and your colleagues. It doesn't matter if you haven't played before, local sports coaches will provide support and instruction for your team and all events have an emphasis on fun.

Our Benefits

The Workplace Challenge can benefit your workplace in the following ways

  • Health

    Workplace physical activity programmes can reduce absenteeism due to sickness, increase work attendance, reduce job stress and decrease healthcare utilisation.

  • Network

    Our dedicated network of 45 County Sports Partnerships are available to provide support, guidance and opportunities for workplaces to engage in sport and physical activity.

  • Productivity

    Healthier and more active workplaces have been proven to be happier and more productive workforces. Research suggests that exercise can reduce absenteeism by 23.5% and staff turnover can be reduced by 16% (BUPA, 2012).

  • Sustainability

    Our software monitors "active travel" by recording how much C02 our users save by not driving to meetings, work, shops. etc.

What Our Users Are Saying...

  • "I took up walking to work and timed myself each morning, doing the three and a half miles in around 45 minutes. My health – weight, BMI, etc. – improved considerably over the next five months. As a result, I feel I'm performing better at my day job and generally feeling much better in myself."

  • "I've lost 20lbs (nearly one and a half stones), and by upping my level of activity, it has increased my confidence to try other things."
