There’s nothing like a Fitbit challenge to get me power walking an extra loop around the block. The trophy hunter in me loves collecting the badges and seeing where I place on the leaderboard each day. So when Fitbit Adventures was introduced in Summer 2016, I knew I had to join in the fun.
There are several exciting virtual races to take part in, accessible from the Fitbit app dashboard. Fitbit are even taking suggestions for future adventures on their forum. Did I mention that there is a super cute badge awarded on completion of each adventure?
Three trails take you on an adventure in Yosemite national park in California’s Sierra Nevada. Such a beautiful place, filled with waterfalls, breathtaking views and inspirational sights.
Vernal Falls – 15,000 steps
Valley Loop – 24,000 steps
Pohono Trail – 42,000 steps
The NYC courses take you to the heart of New York with iconic landmarks along the way as you take part in 3 different virtual races including The Abbott Dash, NYC 10 miles and the official TCS New York City Marathon.
NYC 3.1 Miles – 8,000 steps
NYC 10 Miles – 24,000 steps
NYC 26.2 Miles – 57,000 steps
At the moment Fitbit Adventures are to completed alone, so if you don’t have any Fitbit friends that’s totally fine!
There are Landmarks with interactive views and Treasures which give you info about each adventure, health tips and challenges along the way.
You don’t have to do all of the steps in one day, take it in your stride but if you are anything like me you will want to do more steps to beat your previous day’s total.
If you have had your Fitbit for a while then this is perfect to get your motivation flowing again. Just head to the Challenges tab in your Fitbit app to select your adventure.
There will be more locations added in the future, so no chance of getting bored and great news for badge hunters. I’m hoping that one day there will be global events in which Fitbitters can take part in a course, data gets synced up and there is some kind of worldwide leaderboard with real medals at the end.
I wonder if Fitbit would consider making real badges in the future? They would look make very cute enamel pins!
