Every Bit Gets You Fit: Join the #Fitbit2014 New Year Challenge
For a big change in the new year, think small. Resolutions get broken, but daily and weekly habits stick. Make fitness part of your regular routine all year long with Fitbit.
Follow along with #Fitbit2014 to take up challenges, win prizes, and get fun tips for staying fit all year. We’ve got a TON going on over the next six weeks to interact with! Here’s how:
- Start by joining our New Year’s Fitbit.com group for an overall steps challenge in January. (TIP: If you don’t want group notification emails, make sure to deselect “Follow All Topics” on the group page. You can also change your group email preferences under the “Notifications” tab in your user profile settings.)
- Then, every Monday for six weeks starting January 6, we’ll launch a new weekly challenge to get your moving. These challenges will feature tips and helpful advice from Fitbit ambassadors to help you stick to the weekly goal.
- Finally, each week we’ll be giving away a sweet Fitbit prize. Participate with each weekly challenge and be sure to include the hashtag #Fitbit2014 on on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and/or Instagram, and you just might score a New Year’s surprise!
