iFantasyFitness, sometimes written !FantasyFitness, is a summer training game. You get points by exercising, and the people and teams with the most points win.
Generally, anything that requires you to change clothes and results in a high heart rate. This includes things like aerobically-intensive sports, strength training, fitness classes, biking, and even power walks. Just make sure that you're getting a good workout when you count your points.
It does not include low-intensity activity like household chores, short walks, wrestling with younger cousins, or your commute between classes, nor does it include non-aerobic activity like dancing, golf, or Wii Fit.
The point is: you should only give yourself points if you believe that you got a good workout in.
Everything you do gets converted to points. The current conversions are:
You can get Team Running points at Tuesday Monument and Saturday Brunch practices. Details are generally posted on the team wiki page ahead of time.
If you're at altitude - no worries, we recognize that your oxygen supply is limited, so you get a multiplier depending on how high up you are:
Note: coaches may ask you for verification of your altitude, so we suggest taking photos or using a GPS watch while you're up there.
There is only one "true" limit: be honest with what you log. We generally don't have an issue, but please don't put in more than what you actually did. If in doubt, round down.
For Highland leagues, some activities are limited, or "capped", at certain thresholds. The current caps are:
Carleton leagues are not subject to caps.
For iFantasyFitness, one week is 7 consecutive days. We check and clear cap data every night.
Aside from a better athletic base, iFantasyFitness has a couple awards that you can be eligible for:
We hand out awards at the August Team BBQ at the end of the season.
Distance stars are awarded to people that run a lot. You'll get a certificate if you reach Gold, a t-shirt if you reach Platinum, and a bar for your letter jacket if you reach Diamond. Pretty sweet stuff. The thresholds are:
