Get your gym buddies together and be part of the push for better mental health.

Come together for a cause

Sign your gym buddies up for an epic mental health and fitness event.  

The Push-Up Challenge is a unique, fun way for gyms of all sizes to encourage better mental health and wellbeing through connection, physical activity and education.

You know that prioritising your physical health is important, and we believe that focusing on mental health and wellness is just as critical. Joining The Push-Up Challenge will be one of the best things you can do this year.

"Research has shown exercise to be as effective as an antidepressant for mild-to-moderate depression."

Next steps

3. Start pushing on February 1, 2024!

The Challenge

You and your team will be challenged to complete 2,000 push-ups over 23 days in February, as we put a spotlight on the 20% of Canadians who experience mental illness every year.

We know - that's a lot of push-ups. But don't sweat, any exercise goes, plus you can aim for a portion of the push-up target instead.
