Challenges with no equipment…
Just got the stairs? Your garden? The perimeter of your living room rug to keep you fit? We’ve got you covered! Some are great challenges to keep the kids active and will make a fantastic ‘show and tell’. “I climbed Mount Everest…kind of!!”

30 DAY FITNESS CHALLENGES
CN TOWER, TORONTO
Challenges with fitness equipment…
If you are lucky enough to have your own keep-fit equipment at home, set yourself a goal and attempt one of these challenges using gym equipment during lockdown!
Run on a treadmill or cross trainer – a marathon 26.2 miles
Cycle on a static bike – London to Paris is 315 miles
Row on a rowing machine – Lake Windermere is 21 miles long
…or set your own challenge! Whatever you choose ask people to donate to your fundraising page. You could even ask for each mile to be sponsored?
Run (or walk!) the 26.2 mile distance of a marathon. If it feels a little far to go it alone, why not do it as part of a team? Either on a home treadmill, in the garden or when you can get further afield. A great excuse to get outdoors or use your lunch break at home more wisely!
— Keep track of your steps using a Fitbit, Garmin or just on your phone! —
— Remember to share your sweaty selfies, telling everyone of your progress! —
— Know your limits and don’t overdo it. Keep yourself hydrated and don’t forget to reward yourself for your efforts! —

— Keep at least one metre apart from anyone outside your household at all times, ideally two! —
— If you have a garden, make use of the space for exercise and fresh air —
