Mark H I have not entered a lift/elevator nor used escalators all month. It was a little difficult to remember to follow this when I was in a hotel a few weeks ago but thankfully I was on low floor
I am part of a large urban audience that conveniently skip the stairs to push in with the crowd towards the elevators, be it the Metro stations, shopping malls or even office buildings. As a result when the stairways never become cleaner or accesible, the health-level of a typical urban professional deteriorates. Hence the challenge.
For one month, no elevators for buildings of 5 storeys or less Challenge rules
- Use stairs instead of elevators for buildings of 5 storeys or less.
- Do not use escalators at the Metro or railway stations, find and use the stairs, instead.
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
Training for the following exercises will be automatically logged against this Challenge:
“I always do this when the option is there - sometimes it motivates me to make it feel like a workout and I push myself when climbing the stairs.”

Kirstie M Just been down the 2 floors to reception to carry a brick sample back to a colleague. Didn't take the lift back up!
Kirstie M Shouldn't be a problem - I can only think of a couple of buildings here with lifts. Or escalators. Or that have more than 3 floors!
Manu S Happy to see so much positive response to the "No Elevators" challenge - 16 takers in 6 days! Great going, friends!! :)
Manu S created the For one month, no elevators for buildings of 5 storeys or less Challenge
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
