Has anybody got a definite answer to this question. I know the Spark coach said something about running out of streaks but there must be a set point established. It would be very motivating to know what this is.

I looked at my Trophy page as you suggest and found I am getting the 90 minute per week "streak" award about every six months. Maybe I get the Fitness Gold Medal once a year? :) No offense, but it seems a bit odd that someone at SparkPeople doesn't know "the rules". Having been in the IT field for years, I know somewhere there is code generating these awards. Seems like a question for the IT guy or gal.

When we went to your Trophy/Awards page, we see that you've received that streak award for x number of weeks of a streak a handful of times. I think we ran out of that many weeks of trophies for you (since you've had that streak for so long) and you've probably exceeded the “streak” trophy, so you're just getting it periodically at this point.

Sorry for the confusion!

I don't see an explanation as to what the Fitness Gold Medal is. I have received one today. The only explanation in the email is "'Exercise for at least 90 minutes per week." but does not state as to how many weeks one does this before they get a trophy. I have exercised 90 minutes a week for quite some time, so it's not clear to me what tipped the scales for this trophy.

Sorry, I've done a terrible job of answering your questions :)

I forwarded this to our tech folks for clarification. I'm guessing you have to cross a certain number of fitness minutes logged to get this award, I'm just not sure what that number is. I'll let you know when I hear back from them.

Thanks,

Coach Jen
