We want this challenge to be as accessible as possible! If you are unable to participate by stepping, feel free to convert your minutes of physical activity to steps at the rate of 1 second of exercise to 1 step. For example, 60 seconds of exercise is equal to 60 steps in this challenge. You can lift, roll, do guided exercise, or any other activities. Being active is all that’s important! If we can make this challenge even more accessible, please reach out to [email protected]. We’d love to connect with you, and learn how we can improve our programs! 🙂
