  • What type of exercise can be counted?
    Any kind of exercise counts regardless of intensity (i.e., walking, martial arts, weight lifting, swimming, yoga, tennis, team sports, and more). Exercise must go beyond your daily routine and does not include minutes you are sitting, standing, gardening, doing household chores, riding a lawn mower, etc. While team sports count, you should only count the time you spend exercising, not the time it takes to play the game.

    There is no maximum.
  • What happens with a tie?
