Nothing motivates quite as well as a little hearty friendly competition. In fact, studies have shown that having a workout partner or accountability person who has your back when it comes to maintaining a consistent workout schedule can actually improve your chances for success! That’s why we’re pleased to announce that you can now create your own challenge on our mobile apps and invite your friends to sweat it out with you on MapMyFitness powered by Secret.
Here’s how to create your very own challenge:
From your mobile iPhone or Android app, go to your menu screen in the top left and select “challenges.” (please note, these challenges are not available on web)
Hit the plus (+) button in the upper right hand corner.
Fill out the name, duration, activity type, and amount you want the challenge to reoccur.
Invite your friends to duke it out with you no matter where they live!
