Thanks for all the replies, guys!
We may gear up for a big challenge in the fall (with teams perhaps, that idea sounded fun to me), but I would be willing to do a little one for the summer, if you guys like.

Four questions:

(1) would you like to see challenges in this Team?

Yes, I love challenges

(2) how often?

I try to join at least one challenge/month, usually not with the same team every month

(3) what sort - ex. strength training, whole you (taking care of the whole you, mentally/physically/emotionally), cardio, nutrition, mini goals/streaks...?

I prefer nutritional challenges that help me stay on track. I also prefer mini goals/streaks

(4) would you like challenges to be individual? Or break into teams and have the teams compete against each other?

Doesn't matter to me

Short and simple are my choice with teams. The teams could remain the same, but challenges change.

Thanks for your responses!
Great ideas.
Mmm...maybe easier, simpler weekly ones to keep us on track, but harder, long-term ones?

(1) YES, YES, YES!!

(2) I find that bi-weekly or monthly goals are best on my other teams because it gives you a chance to "make up" for slacking off without feeling down on yourself. Weekly challenges are difficult because weeks can get so packed, but if it's a (moderately) longer time period, it's easier to manage.

(3) Just personally, I prefer exercise challenges. I find that if I'm making the effort to exercise, it's much more difficult for me to neglect other aspects (food and/or whole person efforts). If I'm putting the effort into planning/doing exercise, why waste it by letting other things go?

(4) The idea of competitions is intriguing and very motivating! Teams would be AWESOME.

Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must first set yourself on fire.

Excellence is the result of caring more than others think wise, risking more than others think safe, dreaming more than others think practical, and expecting more than others think possible.

Thanks for answering, Sam!
I, too, am fond of the idea to split into teams.
