What is a Challenge?

In Train by PushPress, a challenge serves as an interactive and motivating tool for gym members. It inspires them to surpass their fitness limits and reach new goals. For instance, you can establish a "Monthly Movement Challenge" featuring exercises like Push-Ups, Pull-Ups, or tracking Steps. Participants can log their daily results, and everyone can check the live leaderboard for ongoing updates. These challenges create a structured platform for specific workouts, cultivating a community spirit and encouraging friendly competition among participants.
