“DÉFI 150 minutes : c’est la CLÉ” Challenge

The “DÉFI 150 minutes : c’est la CLÉ” challenge is a Nautilus Plus initiative to contribute financially to the prevention and promotion of healthy lifestyle habits in our society.

According to WHO recommendations, everyone should perform at least 150 minutes of moderate to sustained intensity physical activity per week to achieve better health and overall well-being. In line with this recommendation, Nautilus Plus is launching the first edition of the “DÉFI 150 minutes : c’est la CLÉ”, which will take place the week of November 20, 2023.

The challenge is to complete 150 minutes of physical activity over the course of the week, using Nautilus Plus facilities free of charge.

Profits from this activity will be donated to the Chaire de leadership en enseignement sur la promotion des saines habitudes de vie – Nautilus Plus, in the Department of Kinesiology in the Faculty of Medicine at Université Laval. The aim of this entity is to bring together different types of knowledge concerning the promotion of healthy lifestyle habits, to improve teaching practices in this area and thus enhance the health and well-being of the population.

$120 000 in donations*
4 500 participants
Over 450 teams
675 000 minutes of physical activity accumulated

*All profits will be donated to the CLÉ. Only the cost of the shirts will be deducted from the total amount donated.

Your goal?

Accumulate 150 minutes of physical activity during the week (about 30 minutes a day) AND complete the challenge in one of our branches on the official day together!

When and where?

The official day of the challenge will be Sunday, November 26, 2023*. The idea is to accumulate minutes of physical activity during the week of November 20 to 25, 2023, and finish your last minutes (about 30 minutes) in one of our Nautilus Plus centers on Sunday, November 26, 2023.

*The official last day of the challenge will take place on Monday, November 27 at Place Montréal Trust, Berri-UQAM, Place Victoria and Place Ville-Marie branches.
