Contest Closed: Exclusive 'Trick or Track' Step Challenge for October

By , SparkPeople Blogger
We're taking a big step in helping you get fit! SparkPeople has just released the Spark, our very own activity tracker that integrates perfectly with the rest of SparkPeople's online tools. The Spark Activity Tracker requires no charging, determines the specific type of workout you're doing (walking vs. running vs. elliptical) and automatically logs your fitness minutes directly to your SparkPeople Fitness Tracker!

The new Spark Activity Tracker is just one more way to get you motivated and moving toward your goals—and we're here to help you along the way. Everyone who uses a Spark is eligible to participate in monthly fitness challenges that will motivate you to get out there and walk, run or bike your way to reaching your goals each month. Our very first challenge, the Trick or Track Halloween Challenge, starts on October 1 and offers some BIG prizes! 

The goal of the challenge is simple: Track at least 100,000 steps during the month of October (that's roughly 3,225 steps per day) using your Spark Activity Tracker. Every "Spark" user who reaches this goal will win a virtual trophy and be entered into a prize drawing. We'll randomly select five challenge participants to win a prize pack from our launch sponsor Pure Protein that includes a $100 gift card for new fitness gear, plus Pure Protein bars, a T-shirt, bag and socks!

You can join the October challenge any time during the month and still be entered to win prizes if you meet the monthly goal! Owning a Spark Activity Tracker and syncing it to your SparkPeople account during set-up automatically enters you into this (and future) monthly challenges. Find all the rules for the Trick or Track Halloween Challenge here.

Be sure take advantage of the great steps opportunities throughout the month: Volunteer to chaperone your neighborhood trick-or-tricking party to score some major fitness minutes; lead an epic treat hunt with your kids, nieces and nephews or neighbors; enjoy the fall weather and scenery by walking your dog or going on a few nature hikes. Every step counts!
The Trick or Track Halloween Challenge for Spark users is brought to you by our sponsor Pure Protein.
