participant information

A motivating program for you and your colleagues.

We created the Défi Entreprises because we are convinced of one thing: physical activity is good for physical and mental health. Over the past 10 years, we have helped more than 100 participants increase the amount of physical activity they do, thanks to our program!

The challenge

For 3 months, we provide you with training tools, such as training programs, home training videos and health tips;


You have access to a web platform that allows you to accumulate your minutes of physical activity and we encourage you to take up the Challenge of doing 100 minutes per week;


We send your home an envelope containing your bib, a t-shirt and a medal;


We end it all with an event, in which you participate virtually or face-to-face, depending on the package you have chosen.


Who is it for?

If your business is registered, you are invited to register! If not, this is a good opportunity to present the project to your human resources manager.



What does it commit to?

We suggest that you make a commitment to yourself by setting a goal that is important to you. For our part, we suggest that participants make a commitment to themselves to do 100 minutes of physical activity per week and meet at least one of the 5 final challenges.



What is the Experience Package?

The Experience Package is our way of adapting the traditional Business Challenge to the pandemic. It will be adjusted to the health situation which will be in force in spring 2021.

How does it work?

2. Following your registration, we will send to your home an envelope containing a bib, a jersey, a medal and recipe cards;


3. Starting in March, you will receive a weekly email summarizing the workouts to be done for the week;


4. In June, you participate in the final event according to the package chosen.



Where is it?

The entire preparation period takes place remotely. Businesses from across Canada can participate. Participants outside of Canada may participate. However, we need to send their envelope to a Canadian address, which can then be forwarded.


The final event takes place 100% online for Virtual Package participants, while the Experience Package ends with a route to be completed in the following cities: Quebec, Montreal, Trois-Rivières, Gatineau / Ottawa and Saguenay.
