International Day of University Sport: win a home gym kit and more

FISU 18 September 2022

Get moving this Autumn for your chance to win one of five exciting fitness-first prizes! On 20th September each year, universities around the world unite for the International Day of University Sport (IDUS), promoting sport, physical activity, and a healthy lifestyle.


To celebrate IDUS this year, in partnership with the Technogym App, we’re running the FISU Challenge 2022. You’ll have the chance to win a fully-equipped Home Gym Bench set or a Wellness Ball Active Sitting exercise ball. Read on to find out all the details on how to enter.





The FISU Challenge 2022 is all about promoting an active and healthy lifestyle on campus. The competition runs between 20th September and 31st October, during which time the ‘moves’ will be calculated (see further details below).


There are three different groups who have a chance to win one of the many prizes on offer.


GROUP 1: ‘Move’ Winners on Leaderboard


Individuals who score the highest number of ‘moves’ on the FISU Challenge 2022 in the Technogym App.


First place prize: 1 Home Gym Bench set

2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th place prize: Each will receive one Wellness Ball Active Sitting exercise ball.


GROUP 2: Randomly-selected Participants


All individuals who join the FISU Challenge 2022 in the Technogym App and collect ‘move’ points, will have a chance to win. Five randomly-selected participants will each receive one Wellness Ball Active Sitting exercise ball.


GROUP 3: National University Sports Federations (NUSF)


Collect your ‘move’ points and help your NUSF win! Using geolocation technology, all ‘move’ points gained inside the same country will contribute collecting moves for local NUSF. The top three highest-scoring NUSFs will each win one Home Gym Bench set. Help promote the FISU Challenge 2022 at your university to boost your NUSF’s points and chances of winning!
