Benefits of Fitwins Walking Challenges

One of the unique features of Fitwins’ virtual walking challenges is the ability to take virtual tours of some of the most beautiful and famous cities in the world. As you walk, you can explore stunning locations like the Colosseum in Rome, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and the Brooklyn Bridge in New York. This adds an element of excitement and adventure to your walks, making them more interesting and engaging.

Fitwins’ virtual walking challenges are an excellent opportunity to involve your loved ones in your fitness journey. Get your family out of the house and let them join you in hitting your targets.

How to Succeed in a Fitwins Virtual Walking Challenge

If you’re ready to take on a Fitwins virtual walking challenge with your family, here are some tips to help you succeed:

Choose a Challenge That Fits Your Fitness Level

Fitwins offers walking challenges with goals ranging from 25 miles to over 200 miles. It’s important to choose a challenge that suits your fitness level. Start with a distance that is achievable but still pushes you out of your comfort zone. As you progress, you can take on more challenging goals.

Set Realistic Goals

Don’t try to do too much too soon. Start with a small goal, such as walking for an hour a few times a week. Once you reach that goal, you can gradually increase the distance or frequency of your walks. Remember, it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Take it one step at a time and celebrate each milestone along the way.

Track Your Progress

Tracking your progress is a powerful motivator. It allows you to see how far you’ve come and gives you a sense of accomplishment. Once entered into a challenge, you are able to track your progress within each stage including, your total distance, stage distance, percentage complete along with your position in the Global Leaderboard as well as your position within your created or joined group.

Walking with your family can certainly make the experience more enjoyable and help you stay motivated. Having someone to chat with, share the experience, and hold each other accountable can make a significant difference. Encourage each other, celebrate milestones together, and make walking a fun and social activity.

Not sure how virtual fitness works?

The easiest way to learn is to try Fitwins for yourself! The app is free to download, and you only pay for challenges you take part in, so why not take it for a test drive?

In the meantime, here are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions about how Fitwins compares to other virtual walking challenges.

No! We believe that flexibility is the key to fitness success, so instead of forcing you to complete a set distance, we let you set your own goal.  This means you can be flexible in how you complete YOUR challenge: so if you are smashing your target, you can raise the bar and aim for more. 

All entries into our challenge will receive a great medal, with a ribbon specific to the challenge type.

For our “iconic challenges”, your ribbon will have a unique design related to the challenge. For our regular monthly challenges, your ribbon will reflect the total distance you covered.

Running and walking ribbons are awarded based on 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175 and 200+ miles. Cycling ribbons are for distances of 50km, 100km, 200km, 500km, 1000km, 2000km and 3000km. 

Absolutely! Not only that, but all the distance you’ve covered since the start of the month will count, as the Fitwins App syncs with Strava and logs all activities from the start of the month, regardless of what date you sign up for the challenge. 

If you are hitting the streets with your app activated, verification is completed automatically by sycning with Strava. You can focus on completing your challenge, and we’ll take care of the rest.

If you’re using a treadmill, exercycle or other stationary equipment for some of your challenge, you’ll need to log this manually.
