It's Easy to Get Started
Shape Up Montana is a team effort! Get a team together through work, family, friends, church or community group. Choose a team name and category. One person is designated as the team captain who is responsible for managing and registering the rest of the team online.
The Shape Up Montana program is based around accumulated activity with an individual healthy weight option.
The number of team members does not affect mileage or weight loss. The accumulated activity is averaged by the number of participants on a team and healthy weight is calculated as a percentage of weight loss per team.
