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:

  1. 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.)
  2. 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.
  3. 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!

Here’s a sneak peek at the #Fitbit2014 upcoming weekly challenges:

Week 1, January 6-12: You Take 2,000 More Steps Every Day This Week

Your step goal is in sight. But let’s blast right past that daily goal and up the ante. Here at Fitbit, we’re taking 2,000 more steps every day this week.

Week 2, January 13-26 (extended!): Do a Workout or Event That Scares You

Jumping into a workout or event you’ve never done before can be intimidating, even for one of the fittest men on the planet, ultramarathon runner Dean Karnazes. However, overcoming these fears and attempting new challenges can be tremendously rewarding. Dean kicks off #Fitbit2014 with a guide to kicking your workout fears in the new year.

Week 3, January 27 – February 2: Do Something Nice for Someone

Do something nice for someone. Sounds simple, right? But doing nice things makes you feel happy. Studies have shown even the thought of giving activates the part of the brain associated with pleasure. But we can do more than once per day, right? Take the time to do THREE nice things for your friends, family, coworkers or strangers every day this week.

Week 4, February 3 – 9: Try a New Recipe

With this week’s challenge being “Try a New Recipe,”  we’re starting small. Below are a few recipes that we tried early on to show in our weight-loss plan just to show you how easy it is to fill your plate/day with the raw fruits and veggies you need for optimal health.

Week 5, February 10 – 17: Share the Love

It’s the second week of February. And you know what that means. Love is in the air all week, so for this week’s challenge, we’re keeping it dead simple: Share the love this week with a friend or loved one, and get fitter together.

Week 6, February 18 – 23: ?????

    I got the fitbit for Christmas. I have been doing 10000 steps per day. On New Years
    I did the midnight run in Central Park. It was a 4 mile run. I did all the 10,000 in one hour. My goal for today is to make it to 15,000. I do all crazy types of adventures already. I was in New Zealand last week and went zorbing, sweebing, and black water tubing. I wish the fit bit could record those actions as well.

  12. January 1, 2014

    This is exciting. I’ve been looking all over for ways to get the most out of my flex. I’ve added everybit and linked it to Walgreens’ step tracker, but I think adding Instagram to the mix – making my tracking more social will be fun and increase the likelihood that I will be active all year instead of just the first week of January. I wish fitbit would collaborate with healthy wage. I’d love to see a cash incentive program with physical activity rather than weight loss as the focus.

    My daughter gave me my Flex in November. Have been using it religiously since. Love the interaction and instant feedback. Have been involved in physical fitness all my life but this is the first program that ties all of the elements of fitness into one easy to use program. A life changing activity! Do you have any promotional shirts, hats etc. that can be purchased? I would be proud to wear some type of promotional attire to raise awareness of this wonderful program!!!
    Thanks again,
    Love my Flex,

    I just received my fitbit for the holiday… Although it tells be steps and calories burned, I cannot figure out the caloric intake to enter!! Any help out there? I’m ready to return it!!!! Thank you!!!!

    • MrsGixxer permalink

      If I understand you correctly you need to log what you eat on the fitbit website or a website that links to fitbit. I use sparkepeople.com to log my food because I was using it for years before I got my fitbit and had so many custom foods already entered. You don’t need to enter your food to use your fitbit so don’t return it. It is such a handly little tool to help you keep moving and set goals to do better every day/month/year.

    • jules permalink

      getting the aria scale helps because it provides the program for the calorie(sp?) catalog that will be online. The aria syncs with the fitbit and your computer.
      I think you can still get the info but you just need to hang in there.

    • Anonymous permalink

      I keep track of what I eat and I write down what the serving size is and the calories. It’s a bit of work but we’ll worth it. If you are trying to loss weight, on the log in page you can set your weight gaol and they will help you. I’ve been able to lose over 30 lbs with my Fibot One

    • Lori permalink

      I’m doing all my logs on my smart phone, but you can do it on the computer as well.
      Click on the food plan; after the new window is open, click on the “+” sign in the upper right corner. Type the food you’ve eaten on the “Search entire food data base” bar. After you find your food, select the quantity, and log it.

      Don’t give it up. You’ll get used to it.
      Let me know if you still have problems logging the food

    Good idea but how about for us northern folks with tons of snow to shovel? That is a real workout; unless you happen to have a treadmill you can’t walk outside and you can only walk so many times around the house (or mall if you don’t happen to work full time) so no major steppage happening.

    Can you dream up something possible in suburban snow land?

    Thanks a million – I love my fitbit one and wear it 24/7. All the ladies I work with have joined and all of our steps have dropped with the ice we’ve been having !

  25. January 1, 2014

    You have a Google+ account. (I have a Google+ account.)
    Why are you limiting participation to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram?
    Why not Google+ also?
    Even if participation is less than the others (,although I find that hard to believe), isn’t some participation better than no participation?

    Hi fitbit!

    This idea just popped into my head so I thought I’d share because it seems aligned with what you’re doing across different social mediums and your overall brand. What if extreme, non-traditional activities were being tracked with fitbit and then shared with the entire community? I’m very curious of what people are doing that is different and the type of output and data from fitbit.

    For example, on Jan 7th I’m driving down to Florida (2-day drive!) and then running a 5K, 10K, half-marathon, and full marathon in 4 consecutive days (~80K total) at Disney World. This is my most extreme activity so far in terms running. I’m obviously curious about the tracking during the races, but the in between events also makes me very curious (love testing and analyzing under different conditions):
    -sitting for 2 days in a car (i.e. no movements, sleeping awkwardly, and lots of snacking)
    -walking around the Disney parks for 10+ hours after running each day (the traditional steps tracking)
    -sleeping pattern (the races begin at 5:30am every morning so I have to wake up at 3:30am! And I can’t imagine leaving the park before they kick us out after Magic hours the night before)
    -eating habits (oh those turkey legs! and oh-so-cute Disney desserts)

    I think it’ll be super cool to have these features on your Facebook, Twitter, fitbit blog, and new community group. I’d love to learn about people’s stories and experiences with fitbit during each inspiring, memorable moments.

    Let me know your thoughts! Would love to continue this conversation:)

    Hi
    I am first time FBit user. I bought 4 over Xmas – 3 as presents. I gave one to my “breast friend” so that we can support each other. We are both Breast Cancer Survivors. Me – 13 years and that is how I met her, as a Mentor for her when her journey began almost 3 years ago.
    I started Breast Cancer Dragon Boating about 3 years ago and got her involved at the time. She had always been a bit of an extreme sport type – wind surfing being her passion. Me – slug like, much older, very overweight, depressed but always able to devotedly support a Breast Cancer patient through their fight. My husband dragged me out to Dragon Boating when I had finally left work. He had decided if I wouldn’t do anything proactive, then he was going to put me in front of it. The Paddlers of Spirit Abreast took over and for me the rest is history. I have lost 40 lbs, I am 60, just finally decided to have my breast reconstructed; I am the happiest and probably the fittest I have been in 30 years. Both, my friend and I have struggled with the after effects of having to endure the Cancer journey – the chemical, physical and psychological. BUT we never give up. I see Fit Bit as a super way to make some fun out of what it is that we know we need to do year round, not just during Dragon Boating season.
    I see that there is a huge opportunity for FitBit and maybe (I can see some mention of Breast Cancer already) u already are exploring just how big this could be, to engage the Baby Boomers born say 1950 or later. It would be great to have a blog or section devoted to encouraging those of us, who grew up and worked the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and maybe are winding down BUT know that it is never too late to change.
    Please DO NOT MAKE FIT BIT ALL ABOUT rigidity to goals. I see that FUN is going to be a big component. This age group is a large one, or so we keep getting told. And there are more of us coming yet. I encourage you to target a Program message and support Site to this group. I can tell you my personal story but there will be thousands more who can and who will be inspired to use this product, knowing that it will be a real experience, that will be somewhat customized to this particular demographic. It is a bit unfair of me to send this without having scoured your site yet. I am excited about this potential and wanted to share. As an example I haven’t yet figured out how to (if it is possible) for me to change my target steps per day from 10000??
    I have two total knee replacements, osteoarthritis, blah, blah – so for me to start out at 10000 is unrealistic and could be off-putting. So, this is one example of HOW it will be valuable for your product to be relevant to people of all ages, physical abilities etc. As u grow the “who” will be unending. Think about persons with disabilities. Also, consider hooking people up with mentors – usually a mentor, is best to be someone who has had a similar experience.
    OK – I have tons of ideas and could rave on for ever. I am only now beginning to get going, as I have been under the weather. But get going I will. For me, for now. I am going to concentrate on getting my steps up. That is all. I am not going to record food. Knowing my past food illnesses, I know that this will not be a motivating tool for me at this time. Whereas my friend, is all into it. But then she is 14 years younger.
    Enough said. So far, I love what I see. I love that it emails me when the battery is low AND has the instructions to remind me how to recharge (we oldies sometimes need this).
    cheers Jo

    Maybe I will have some ideas for challenges. Either keep them generic across your demographics or create 3 or so, to allow for differences between what your clients are trying to achieve.

      Hi, Lori, we had some really cold weather here, so I did a lot of my steps at work – walking hallways inside. Every couple of hours I would get up and walk around a hallway. Then when I got home, I did the same thing – lots of walking in my house. Truly boring but about all I could do on a cold, windy day. Hope this helps you.

    I am challenging myself to omit flour, sugar and caffeine. I will also increase the steps and add 3 exercises per week. Would love to have the social support of others. Sounds like fun!

      Hi. Leslie. I know what you mean. One day I did the 10,000 steps and then the next day I could hardly do 2,000. But for week 1 I did add the 2,000 every day and that was good. I plan to do the maybe a 1,000 more a day this week and build my way up to 10,000.

    I was laid off my job last Month, and even then I was usually getting about 8,000 steps. Is this challenge to get 12,000 steps or just 2,000 additional to what I was doing?

    • ChrisMorell, Fitbit permalink*
      January 6, 2014

      In addition to what your regular goal is. But it’s just a starting point. You set your own increase, and let us know how you do!

    Wk:1 – done!
    Wk2 – something that scares me: I recently bought kangoo jumps and had balance issues but tried using them every day. Today I actually ran a lap as fast as I could. That scared me as I was nervous of having a face plant in front of many people.
