help your students and staff move more; perform better - effortlessly

12 week team challenge, full IT system support.
Make normal better

goFIT is a 12 week Team Movement Challenge

We know that being sedentary - inactivity - is one of the biggest health challenges in the UK. We also know that when creating new practices, doing so as part of a team makes success greater - 99% vs 67%. The GoFIT Team Movement Challenge provides a science-lead, team environment to help students and staff move more each week. The goal is simple: to hit that week's movement minute targets.

gofit.ac.uk is your Movement Challenge service.

The goFIT challenge system is a white label service that lets you create your own University's look and feel for your Challenge with our templates. Have a logo? Have a colour? You're ready to go. The service includes everything you need to run a complete challenge, from team set up invitations, to Challenge Leaderboards, admin performance reports, and mobile and desktop Movement Minute Logging clients. There is also a bevy of content from health and wellbeing experts that you can access to support the challenge. Or you can create your own content on the fly or in advance, and schedule when you want it to appear. Set up is easy: contact us to get your challenge started; your organisation's name will appear as "gofit.ac.uk/INSTITUTION" and you will have access to all admin tools and templates to run your challenge. If you'd like it, we're here to help.

A little GoFIT background

gofit.ac.uk is hosted at the University of Southampton, a project lead by prof. m.c. schraefel, Electronics and Computer Science, based on MIT's successful getFit annual challenge. It's been developed with prof. schraefel by Rareloop.com.

Look and Feel

Our templates let you skin the goFIT challenge to support your Uni's look and feel.

Open Safe Data

Data that participants contributes remains theirs; aggregated data sets are available for research into health and wellbeing.


Have a service or system that you'd like goFIT to use? We can help you build in that service, or develop it for you

Pre Challenge Team Organisation

The system helps you get teams together before the Challenge starts - we recommend 2 weeks' notice.


We are keen to see as many Universities participating together in goFIT as possible. Talk to us about how to make this happen.

Challenge Tools

Our Admin Tools make it easy to see how teams are doing each week so you know when you may want to step in to tweak engagement.
