Some corporate challenges allow participants to count other exercise as steps. Follow these instructions for converting and entering your activity.
Converting Activities into Steps

Non Listed Activities
If you complete an exercise which does not show up in the activity list, here is a simple chart for converting your activity to steps.
You can enter these converted steps manually. Go to your challenge and then click the Manual Entry icon in the top right corner. Follow the same steps above, but select ‘steps’ as your activity
Moderate intensity activity causes a slight, but noticeable increase in breathing and heart rate. You should be able to maintain a conversation. Some examples of moderate intensity activity include:
- Horse riding
- Active gardening (e.g. mowing, raking and digging)
10 minutes of moderate intensity activity = 1,000 steps
High intensity activity makes you “huff and puff” and is where talking full sentences between breaths is difficult. Some examples of high intensity activity include:
- Circuit training
- Brisk rowing
- Fast cycling
- Competitive sport (e.g. squash, football and netball)
10 minutes of high intensity activity = 2,000 steps
