The challenge is meant to help participants to unlock a deeper understanding of the metrics displayed on their fitness trackers
New York Sports Club and Garmin have joined forces for the “Summer in the Gym + Win” challenge, which will see NYSC trainers use Garmin devices and collaborate on social media to show members how best to integrate a fitness tracker into their routines.
The fitness event runs from August 1 to August 31, 2023, and encourages consumers to maintain their fitness routines, learn from their fitness trackers and provides the opportunity to win a Garmin vívosmart 5 fitness activity tracker.
“The challenge represents an exciting opportunity for individuals to take their fitness journey to new heights while having a chance to win exciting prizes and learn a little about common fitness tracker metrics,” said Kari Saitowitz, chief marketing officer of New York Sports Club.
The challenge is meant to help participants to unlock a deeper understanding of the metrics displayed on their fitness trackers, including real-time activity and heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, instant feedback and activity reminders. It also aims to debunk common fitness tracker myths, including that trackers are little more than pedometers or that they’re redundant if you have a smartphone.
New York Sports Club encourages challenge participants to sync their fitness trackers with the NYSC app for progress tracking over four weeks. The app pairs with different devices including Garmin, Fitbit, Apple Watch and Withings. While not mandatory for the challenge or raffle entry, connecting a fitness tracker is required to compete for the most calories burned and most steps taken prizes. The raffle offers participants the chance to win a Garmin vívosmart 5 tracker, which includes features like a sleep score, long battery life and step count.
The “Summer in the Gym + Win” challenge is segmented into four categories:
- Participate! Just Move + Have Fun: All participants will be automatically entered into a raffle to win a Garmin vívosmart® 5 activity tracker.
- Most Check-Ins: Individuals will be rewarded for the highest number of gym check-ins throughout the challenge period.
- Most Calories Burned: Participants will be rewarded for burning the most calories.
- Most Steps Taken: The participant with the highest step count during the challenge will be rewarded.
