Each week, we will feature a class for Interns to take part in.

Summer Cardio Trek: June 1st - Aug 6th
This summer we have created a virtual cardio challenge and training page.
- Walk, Run or Cycle and track your mileage on the bp Intern Strava group!
- We will track individuals on the Strava leaderboard for weekly mileage, time spent exercising most sessions for the week.
- As a group--the interns are working together to cover different miles
- bp plans to be NetZero by 2050 so let's do 2050 miles together
- If we make that then let's travel to the furthest bp location in America from Houston, TX to Washinton (Cherry Pointe Refinery) and back to Houston - 3,776 miles
- If that was easy then let's keep going for the ultimate miles challenge and travel round trip to different bp locations starting in Houston and back to Houston with 7,117 miles
- A Virtual 5k to be held the week of June 28th.
- A Virtual 5k or 10k will be held the week of July 26th.
Download the Strava app to track your runs and activity. You can post all summer until Friday Aug 6th. That goes for posting fun pics of yourself and activities on Yammer. Look at the Intern Cardio Trek page for all of the information about the group and how to set up Strava (if you don't already have the app). On our Running page We have posted 6 week running programs for beginners, intermediate and advance runners-- to help you go from walking to running to the big 5k and 10k!
Intern Show of Fitness: July 12th - 23rd
We are very excited to offer one of our most popular fitness challenges: The Show of Fitness.
This is our yearly program where we test members in some basic fitness moves and exercises to see who is the most fit!
The mini-version will have 4 events:
- Wall sit for maximum time
- Maximum push-ups
- Plank hold for maximum time
- 1 mile run for fastest time
The events are suited for all fitness levels. We will offer virtual sessions with fitness staff to judge your best attempts at push-ups, planks and wall sits.
Leaderboard for top performers and prizes will be handed out at the end of competition!
This Summer, the workouts maybe virtual--but the results will be REAL!
