How does it work
Begins May 1, 2017 and runs for 10 weeks to support long term behaviour change. Each day participants enter their health behaviours on the easy to use AWC platform and earn points for their team which are tracked on the leaderboards.
Each week new challenges, workouts and health information are released to help teams improve their health and stay engaged. The great thing about AWC is there is something for every fitness level.
Also included are weekly exercise videos, from yoga to functional fitness, all designed by an exercise physiologist.
Finishers certificates are awarded on completion of the challenge highlighting your notable efforts and awards for winning teams across organisation, industry and the entire AWC network.
Each team and organisation receives a full report regarding key facets of the challenge. Detailed reports include information on participation rates, health markers, changes in absenteeism and job satisfaction.
