Join the Push-Up Challenge with headspace!

This June, our headspace teams are inviting you to participate in Australia’s largest mental health and fitness event, The Push-Up Challenge! By taking on 3,249 push-ups over 24 days, the Push-Up Challenge aims to shine a light on the tragic number of lives lost to suicide in Australia in 2022.

From 5th to 28th June, participants of all ages and abilities will engage in push-ups while learning about mental health. This free event allows you to register as an individual or as part of a team. Not only is this a fantastic way to boost your physical health, but it also fosters community spirit and spreads awareness about mental health issues.

Why Participate?

  • Promote Mental Health Awareness: Each day’s push-up target is inspired by an important mental health fact, ensuring you learn something new while working out.
  • Boost Physical Fitness: Daily exercise has been proven to improve both physical and mental wellbeing.
  • Foster Community Connection: Join forces with friends, family, and colleagues to achieve a common goal, fostering a sense of unity and support.
  • Flexible Participation: If 3,249 push-ups seem daunting, set your own goal or opt for alternatives like sit-ups, squats, or tailored exercises. There’s even a dedicated app to track your progress!
