Participants form teams of 2-10 adults to motivate and support each other in achieving their fitness and weight loss goals. Each team needs to choose one person to be its team captain who will have regular computer and internet access. Teams may participate in the Minutes of Activity Division and/or the Weight Loss Division. Through this website, team captains register a team and team members report their progress weekly. This site also provides a daily journal and message center to help keep team members connected and involved in making health changes to reach their fitness and weight loss goals.

Teams may register in the Minutes of Physical Activity Division, the Weight Loss Division or both. In either case, individuals track and record minutes of activity and weight loss which is used to calculate your team's percentage weight loss and total activity minutes. Friendly competition among teams is encouraged.
For the Minutes of Physical Activity Division, each team member reports the number of minutes they are physically active. Activity minutes that count include anything you deem to be intentional physical activity. For example, walking to the elevator does not count but intentionally taking the stairs instead of the elevator does count. The goal is to track your current level of physical activity and make small daily changes to increase it.
For the Weight Loss Division, teams are assessed based on the combined weight of all members. Individuals can report their weight online or have their captain submit it for them. Team totals are viewed as percentage lost or gained. Individual weights are only viewable by that individual.
There are two ways to register teams for Live Healthy America's 10 Week Wellness Challenge:
1. Multiple teams from a worksite or organization
Live Healthy America is a wellness program that can be administered to worksites or organizations that may have offices spread accross the country. These worksites or organizations may wish to register multiple teams within their organization. In this case, Live Healthy America will assign the entity (worksite, church, etc.) its own group ID. Team captains will use the group ID to link their individual team to its entity. These entities will have their own page on the website where they can view the ranking of each team registered under their group ID.
For more information about registering multiple teams or to receive a group ID, click here.
2. Individual teams of friends or family members
Groups of people who do not wish to link their team to a larger entity (worksite, church, etc.) can form their own Friends & Family team. This program is perfect for a group of friends, husband-wife teams and even co-workers if their worksite is not registered in the Company & Organization program.
