Categories: Active Sussex Programmes

Workplaces across Sussex are invited to join the nationwide 'Shake Up September' Workplace Challenge.

Employees taking part in the FREE month-long web-based challenge can log their sport & physical activity on a personalised dashboard - via the website or app - with the ultimate aim of logging as much new activity as possible.

The online leaderboard gives a 'real time' indication of who is to be crowned the Shake Up September individual & team champions, with a number of 'spot prizes' awarded through the duration of the challenge.

Prizes on offer include: a £600 treadmill, courtesy of JTX Fitness, a 1:1 nutrition consultation courtesy of LGM Nutrition & a free yoga class at your workplace courtesy of Live Love Yoga. See the full list of prizes on the Workplace Challenge website



Workplace Challenge supports & promotes employee physical activity. To date, more than 6,400 businesses and 35,000 employees have registered for Workplace Challenge nationally.

The benefits of a healthy & active workforce are compelling - research shows that insufficient physical inactivity and employee absence go hand in hand - with £975 being the average absenteeism cost per employee.

Register to the Workplace Challenge to join Shake Up September and encourage your colleagues to sign up too - a downloadable poster and activity pack are available.
