Starting the Challenge
The Whole Life Challenge begins and ends with the Whole Life Challenge Body & Fitness Measurements, which consists of three items:
A measurable workout is one that can be measured by a single score or a time that you can improve upon during the course of the Challenge. For example, running or walking a measured distance (like 1 mile) as fast as you can will give you a TIME result. Doing as many sit-ups as you can in 1 minute will give you a SCORE result. Either is acceptable because it can be improved upon.
On the other hand, completing a 1-hour yoga, Pilates, or spinning class does not constitute a measurable workout. No matter how many times you do it, your time will always be 1 hour. You have no possibility for a time improvement.
Note that your team leader might prescribe a specific workout for your team.
Basic body measurements consist of 1 of 3 types of measurements:
1. Girth measurements of your waist and hips in inches or centimeters; or
2. Weight in pounds or kilograms, or
3. Body fat percentage.
You can select which basic body measurement you choose to record within your profile.
Before/After Photos are for your reference only. They will not be used to determine of your official score.
If you wish, all of your measurements and your photo can remain private on your profile.
You will repeat your measurements again when you complete the Challenge. Your improvement in your workout score and measurements will be part of the formula used to determine your final ranking among your teammates.
Complete your Before and After Measurements before or during the first week of the Challenge. Enter your results in your "My Profile" tab under the "Measurement" and "Before and After" sections.
The Whole Life Self-Assessment
The Whole Life Self-Assessment is an opportunity to measure what sort of impact the WLC has on your entire life. Changes during the Challenge won't just be physical, and often, measuring these changes gets left out of the equation. Remember the adage, "what you can measure, you can manage". This is your chance to do just that - evaluate where you are now, and then do it again at the end of the Challenge to see what's improved.
You will find the Self Assessment on your My Profile tab in the game site. Fill it out by considering what your life is like right now — not the way you hope it turns out or you know how it’s going to be during the challenge. You will fill out the Self Assessment again when the Challenge ends and see your results displayed on the finals page.
Once you submit the form, it will not be editable, so please make sure to review it before submission.
The Self Assessment is not required, but we highly recommend it. The results will have no impact on your standing in final rankings. They are for your reference only.
