HOW IT WORKS
Teams of 6-8 Harvard affiliates compete to accrue workout minutes in our facilities (MAC and Hemenway only this year) between
Monday, February 6th and Friday, March 9th, 2012 (for a total of 5 weeks).
TFC team members must be current Harvard affiliates with valid athletic access; members are responsible to keep access current and will not be admitted without a valid, swiping Harvard ID.
Individuals who do not have a team can fill out an individual registration form. These people will be put onto a team with other individuals who do not have a team. A team captain will be selected from these individuals; please indicate on the individual registration form as to whether you’d like to be a team captain.
Registration for TFC 2012 is from 1/23-2/1. Registration forms can be printed from this web site or obtained at the MAC or Hemenway. Registrations forms can be turned in at either facility; they are due no later than February 1, 2012.
LOGGING YOUR FITNESS MINUTES
This year, the team captains will be responsible for keeping track of and entering the teams’ minutes into a Google form/document. The link to the Google form will be emailed to the team captains and it will be available for completion on Mondays from 12pm-5pm. Instructions on how to complete the form will be listed on the top of the form.
The team captains are the contacts for each team. All correspondence and minutes logging must be handled through the team captain. In the event that the team captain is absent or on vacation during a day that the minutes need to be turned in, a substitute team captain can step in. You must notify the TFC committee contacts (see below) prior to this change.
VACATION AND NON-HARVARD TFC MINUTES
Since the rules state that a TFC team member must swipe into a facility in order for his/her TFC minutes to count, we cannot accept minutes from a TFC team member while he/she is on vacation.
Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 TFC teams (determined using the “adjusted minutes” which averages the points per team member and calculates based on a team maximum of 8 participants).
This year, we are awarding raffle prizes on a weekly basis for Bonus Workouts. Team members can fill out a raffle form at the front desk of either facility each time they come to the gym and participate in a Bonus Workout class (limit one per person, per day, per facility) to win a weekly prize. Raffle prizes will be awarded on the Monday following the weekly Bonus Workout. The winners will be contacted via email and prizes can be picked up at the facility where the raffle form was dropped of. Please be sure to include the following information on your raffle form: your name, your team’s name, your email address, your phone #. Invalid or illegible raffle tickets will be considered null and void. Raffle prizes and Bonus Workouts will start the week of February 12th.
At the end of the competition, a raffle prize will also be awarded to a team captain. The TFC committee will select the winner via a random drawing.
TFC runs for 5 weeks, from 2/6-3/9. The weeks will be split from each Monday, starting at noon and ending at noon. For instance, week 1 will start at noon on Monday, 2/6 and it will end on Monday, 2/13 (at which point week 2 will start), and so on. Weekly standings will be posted on the Wednesday of each week (i.e., 2/15, 2/22, 2/29, and so on).
The winners will be announced the week of 3/12-3/16.
Prizes will be distributed in March/April 2012.
Bonus points (“minutes”) will be based on attendance of weekly bonus classes (to be determined by the TFC committee). Each bonus class is worth 55 points (in other words, the length of the class). The minutes will be logged in the Google form each week, but in a separate category. When team members submit minutes to their captains, they should keep regular minutes separate from bonus minutes to avoid confusion.
Make sure you pick up a raffle ticket at your bonus class!
A name will be chosen each week for a prize!

All of the weekly team points will be “adjusted” based on the number of people in each team to account for the fact that smaller teams with more people accruing points would count just as much as a larger team with people on it that do not log any minutes. Only “adjusted” and not accrued fitness minutes will be posted each week and at the end of the competition. The Excel spreadsheet tallying the fitness points will have an equation to calculate these totals.
Individuals that attain the American College of Sports Medicine standard physical activity goal (180 minutes per person per week) will also be recognized.
