2015 ukactive Team Challenge powered by MYZONE

Fitness organisation ukactive teamed up with its Strategic Partner MYZONE throughout the month of November to deliver the sector-wide 2015 ukactive Physical Activity Team Challenge. 70 teams of seven from across the UK leisure and activity sectors entered, with the end goal of achieving at least 1,300 MYZONE Effort Points (MEPs) each throughout the month and a team total of at least 9,100 MEPs.

All team members were required to track their heart rate levels whilst exercising using a MYZONE MZ-3 belt, which monitors heart rate to determine effort exerted. Teams took part in an array of different activities, from power-walking to British Military Fitness, boxing and even competitive sport.

A massive total of 1,723,456 MEPs were earned and 8,497,151 calories were burnt. Congratulations went to Carmarthenshire County Council, who were crowned the overall winners.

3d leisure were also pleased to announce their site’s success, coming in seventh place out of 71.

Steven Ward, Executive Director at ukactive, said: “The 2015 ukactive Physical Activity Team Challenge demonstrated how MYZONE can be used in the workplace to promote active lifestyles, as well as encouraging excellent teamwork.”
