RULES & FAQ:

What if I don’t have a fitness tracker?

Easy, there are a number of Apps out there that you can download for free that can help get the job done to tracks steps walked and calories burned. Just find one that works for you and record your data.


Downloading APP - There are several ways to get added. 1) Email Davidi@dcac-live.com your information after registering on Eventbrite. 2) Once you register on Eventbrite, you will be sent a confirmation email from Eventbrite with the links and instructions on how to download both APPs with group names.

Inputting Data All fitness data, except weight loss (recorded weekly), should be inputted on a daily basis. You may go back as far as 3 Days to input your information. If you do not input your information within 3 days, you will lose the opportunity to receive credit/points for those workouts.

Point System - This event is based on a point system. Every activity has its own metric for how you receive a point (i.e. 20 pushups =1 point). The more activities you do, the more points you receive. The person with the most points at the end will be crowned victor. If you have a fitness device, measuring certain activities.

(*Points are automatically calculated on the app*)

Push Ups (20 Push Ups = 1 Point)

If you are unable to do a standard push up from a plank position, don’t be discouraged, you may opt to do a kneeling push up.

Steps Walked (200 Steps = 1 Point)

1 mile is roughly 2,100 steps. If you do not have a fitness tracker handy, there are a number of Apps out there that you can download for free that can help get the job done. (i.e. Apple Health for iPhone/ Google for Android).

Examples Pedometer Apps

Calories Burned (50 Calories burned = 1 Point)

Because 3,500 calories equal about 1 pound (0.45 kilogram) of fat, it's estimated that you need to burn about 3,500 calories to lose 1 pound. So, in general, if you cut about 500 to 1,000 calories a day from your typical diet, you'd lose about 1 to 2pounds a week.


Weight Loss (1pound of fat loss = 5 Points)

Weight must stay off and should be input on a weekly basis. You will have 7 days to input information.


Pull Ups/Chin Ups (5 Pull Ups = 1 Point)

You may opt to do either Pull-Ups and/or Chin Ups for this activity. Breaks are allowed in between reps, however, your sets (1 set = 5 reps or 1 point) should consist of only one exercise. For a regression of this exercise, you can use a resistance band for support. Challenge yourself as best as you can before regression.

Air Squats (20 Air Squat = 1 Point)
