Creating Challenges for Your Clients

 

Let your clients compete and win points by working out, hitting their goals, and personal bests, completing a habit, and more.

 

In this article, we will go over how you can create challenges for your clients. 

 

Check out this how-to video to get started!:  

 

 

 

What types of Challenges can I create?  

There are two types of challenges available - Leaderboard and threshold challenges.
In both challenge types t
rainers can control rules by deciding on a points system. 

 

Type of Challenge  How it works
Leaderboard
  • The Leaderboard challenge will always have 3 top winners.
  • This is used for more competitive groups.
Threshold
  • Threshold challenges allow everyone to be the winner as long as they pass the determined threshold.
  • This can be used for less competitive clients who want to feel good about themselves by having multiple winners, not just the top 3.

 

Who can create a challenge? 

 

Account Type          ✔ or ✘
Owner/Manager            ✔
Admin           ✔
Shared/Regular Trainer           ✔
 
  • Note: The individual who creates a challenge will be the challenge leader by default.

Notes:

    • The Challenge Start time is set to the same time zone as the Trainer creating the Challenge (the Trainer's timezone can be edited on their profile).
    • Challenges must be created at least 1 hour before start time to ensure the Challenge begins on time.
    • If considering counting clients' Daily nutrition goal hits (see below), we recommend creating the Challenge at least 24 hours ahead.  

  • Set the Rules for your Challenge:

    • Leaderboard Challenges:
      Select the tick boxes next to the ways of earning points you would like to apply  > Set the number of points each occurrence is worth > Hit the Blue CREATE button!

How to Edit a Challenge Before it Starts:

 
Leaders can edit challenges only before they start.
 
Leaders can delete challenges at any time (when they are "upcoming", "in progress" or "completed").
 
To edit (or delete) a challenge: 
  • Select the Challenges Tab > Select the Rules & Settings Tab > Click the (...) Menu (indicated by the red arrow below) > Select Edit Challenge from the dropdown.

Important note: Edits can only be made to challenges prior to their start date and time– once they begin they cannot be changed.

 

How can my clients participate in challenges once they've been added? (Mobile version coming soon)

 

  • Clients can view challenges that they have been added to via the homepage of their app under the MY CHALLENGES section as seen below.
