The Brookes Active Workplace Challenge

The Brookes Active Workplace Challenge has been created to help you monitor your activity and challenge yourself to maintain an active lifestyle. There are individual and team challenges and you also contribute to the totals of your faculty/directorate and Brookes as a whole. Staff at Brookes are invited to join in with specific challenges but the site is available for your use throughout the year.

The Workplace Challenge rewards the effort you put in rather than how fit you are, automatically calculating points based on duration, activity and intensity.
