Be part of the push for better. Help your organisation aim for better mental and physical health in the workplace.
Let's work it out
The Push-Up Challenge is a unique and fun way for organisations to encourage better mental health and wellbeing through connection, physical activity and education.
Prioritising the mental and physical health of your workmates will be one of the best things your organisation can do this year.
"A recent study involving 1.24 million people found that people who participate in exercise have less days of poor mental health per month."
2. Ensure your colleagues have downloaded the Push for Better app.
3. Start pushing on 1 June 2023!
Workplace expression of interest
You and your workmates will be challenged to complete 3,144 push-ups over 23 days in June as we put a spotlight on the number of lives lost to suicide in 2021.
We know - that's a lot of push-ups. But don't panic, any exercise goes, plus you can aim for half of the push-up target instead.

It can shape up like this
People can sign up solo, as part of a team or a community. Most organisations will have a team at the very least, or multiple teams which form a community.
This is a collection of teams. Great for large workplaces.
Join up to 10 of your work crew together to form a team.
Anyone can sign up as a solo participant and they’ll have the support of the entire push-up crew behind them.
How we did in 2022
87% of participants told us The Push-Up Challenge was either better, or much better, than other workplace health promotion activities.
6,157 Workplace teams joined the push for better.
44,322 Workplace participants came together.
"We had numerous teams participate in Aus and NZ, across all ages and fitness levels. Teams were setting reminders throughout the day to complete their daily push-ups which created a lot of discussion, banter and laughter each day. It was a great success for improving awareness of mental health within our business and supporting a great cause."
