Do I have to complete the Weekly Miles to stay in the program?

Do I have to complete the Weekly Miles at the Employee Gym?
No. You can complete the weekly miles anywhere your heart desires! At your local gym, in your neighborhood, and where ever you find it convenient to fit in your schedule.
How would you know that I actually completed the miles as recommended?
Honor System! You don't have to prove anything. Just state how many miles you have completed when you are asked at the weekly weigh-in.
Who is keeping track of my miles during the week?
You Are. It's your responsibility to keep track of how many miles you complete during the week and tally up the total for your weekly weigh-in update.
How come the miles completed walking are counted differently from miles completed on the bike or swimming?
I do a lot of walking at work, Can I count this towards my weekly miles?
Preferably not. Since your body is probably already used to the daily work load. Doing something different can help jump start the routine and help you burn more calories.
