How does the Fit Together Shoreline Work?

FIT Together Shoreline takes place during the whole month of May. There is no need to sign up. Each day you’ll go to www.shorelinewa.gov/FIT and track how many minutes you were physically active that day.  Active minutes can include anything from doing yard work, to taking a yoga class, to running a marathon.  There are also “wellness” activities that you complete and check off on the tracker to earn bonus points.  Each time you log your totals on the FIT Tracker, they will be posted in real time at www.shorelinewa.gov/FIT where you’ll be able to see how you are doing and the standings for all the participants. You’ll receive weekly email updates and are encouraged to attend the free events associated with FIT Together Shoreline to better connect with other participants.

Email Marianne Johnson, Recreation Specialist II at mjohnson@shorelinewa.gov and provide information about your name and what totals should be corrected.

Do I have to log my active minutes each day, or can I combine days and log them one time?
Do whatever works best for you. We encourage people to log their totals each day so that you do not forget or lose track and so people can see the most current up to date totals of all participants. 

I don’t have access to the internet, can I still participate?
Yes,  paper tracking sheets are available at the Spartan Recreation Center.  You can fill these out and drop them off at the Spartan Recreation Center.  A staff person will enter the totals into the system for you.

Help, I still have questions.
