Someone recommended you try for 100 points every day as a motivator to exercise. It is hard to get there without cardio and strength training.

Spark Points are fun motivational tools - like stickers. Who doesn't like to get a sticker. And a lot of times kids like to give stickers to their good friends, you can give Spark Goodies to your friends on SP using your Spark Points. A great way to show encouragement & friendship! Also wonderful way to keep you reading the educational articles, the more you read, the more points you have to give away goodies:) emoticon

Earning sparkpoints is probably like any other virtual game. I try to earn points to get to my next trophy and buy goodies for my fellow sparkies. Also whenever someone gives me a goodie it lifts my spirits, you would think that someone purchased the real item for me.

Spark points gets me encouraged to read the articles that are beneficial to me that I wouldn't have taken the time to do before. I am really enjoying the information posted

It just a fun way to keep me organized. Example: I know I read my spark article when I see I earned points. Another example to stay organized is to see nutrition or exercise spark points are adding up. It is also a way to give sparkfriends and yourself virtual gifts.

The sparkpoints are for fun and motivation. Kinda like a game for grown-ups. I like them, to me it is a measure of how I'm learning about health and fitness.

I think the Sparkpoints should offer more than "goodies they should offer you a way to get the T-shirts or something simular.

You can't really spend sparkpoints except for on goodies for yourself and for others. Other than that they are just there for motivation and they are used in challenges to so that you can explore the site and learn more about it.
