Q: How do I get in a team? 

A: Invite your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. However, even if you don't form your own team, you'll still be placed on a team of three. You will pick a team captain and team name. Each team will strategize how to work together to achieve your goals and compete for a final cash prize at the end of the challenge. Note that while we facilitate this challenge and provide helpful tips along the way, your team should be your main motivators as well as other participants in the challenge. You are each others' best cheerleaders!
