84 Sunrises, together

At FEAT we embrace the outdoors. We thrive in an environment that challenges us to get comfortable with the uncomfortable. And best of all, we cheer each other on in the process. No matter the season we’re in!

There is so much in our lives designed to make everything easier and more comfortable. We have such amazing technology at our fingertips that we can literally click a button and a three-course meal will be driven to our door. We can sit on our couch and tell the computer to turn the lights on. We’re constantly conditioned to seek comfort. Which is great - who doesn’t love a faster/easier way to accomplish things in their busy schedules? But…by getting outside your comfort zone (literally), you can challenge your body and mind to reach new levels.

That’s what Winter FEAT is all about!

Training through winter and committing to getting to each session you said you would attend, builds a solid foundation for our physical and mental resolve which translates into the rest of our lives.

What is Winter FEAT?

Winter FEAT is a 12-week challenge where you and your training community get to amass points through your commitment and follow-through. Winter FEAT is centred around our core principles of COMMUNITY and FUN.

Throughout winter, we bring endless amounts of play down to the park to our training sessions. We get our bodies moving, we participate in challenges, and we support each other every step of the way.

Training through the cooler part of the year isn’t always easy. It’s darker when your alarm goes off, every part of your brain might tell you to stay inside, stay comfortable. When you commit to Winter FEAT you never take the easy option. And because it’s not easy, it’s truly fulfilling and fun, whilst the rewards for your physical, mental and spiritual health are bountiful.

FAQs

Can I enter Winter FEAT at any time?

If you're already a member with FEAT Fitness, you'll be entered into the Winter FEAT competition automatically. If you're a new member, you'll be automatically entered into Winter FEAT when you join.

How are the points per team calculated?

We take all the points from people in that colour, and every week we normalise the data so that points are averaged across the number of active participating members that week. So if you're away for a ski trip or school holidays, don't worry you're not going to let your team down! Just make sure you let your trainer know and fill in a freeze form.
At the end of the 12 weeks, we'll add up all of these weekly normalised scores and produce a winning team!

Does it matter if the teams don't have the same size of people per location

Nope! The scores are normalised week on week to average out the score based on the number of active members that week.

I want to rebook my session, do I still get my 5 points if I hit the same number of sessions?

We support you doing what you said you'd do on our Sunday text. Rebooking a session gets you alot of brownie points and some high fives! But you need to hit those days to get the full 5 points.
HOWEVER!
This year we have introduced the Joker Card! You can surrender the card to be forgiven for one of these rebooked sessions!

How do I use the Joker Card in my welcome pack?

This card is a chance to rebook one of your missed sessions and still get the full 5 points that week! Use it wisely because you have to surrender it when you use it, and it can't be shared with other teammates. Just give it to your trainer and let them know that you'll be playing the Joker.

What colour does each location have?

Great Question! Luckily you'll find out shortly! All colours and shirts will be revealed at the end of our North & South Session. So don't miss this one!

Who can answer any other questions about Winter FEAT I have?

If you have any specific question, just contact your trainer! They love to answer these questions, Winter FEAT is their favourite time of the year.
