With Leap4Life, there are two different point systems - Status Points and Fitwell Points. You earn Status Points by just about everything you do on the site - commenting on a group or event page, entering events etc. Fitwell points, however, are what you need to accumulate to cash out for money, and they're harder to come by. Don't scoff at Status Points, though, because when your status increases to higher levels, you will get bonus Fitwell points.
The quickest and easiest way to earn both Status Points and Fitwell points is by entering events. Not all of them pay out in Fitwell Points, but you can earn quite a chunk of Status Points so make sure you check the events page every morning and sign up for the next one available. There is no penalty for entering an event and not making it, so sign up for all of them, even if some look too difficult to complete. Most of the individual events that do pay out in Fitwell Points only give 10 points, but there are usually several of those a week, and it all adds up. You need to earn 2,500 Fitwell points to cash out for $25. That sounds like a lot, but don't run away just yet, as I'll show you how to earn extra Fitwell points more quickly.
The key to earning more Fitwell Points is to join teams and get in on team events that usually pay out 100 Fitwell Points, but as I said earlier, Status Points also help you earn money indirectly. The chart below shows the bonus Fitwell Points you will get once you advance in status beyond the basic level.

If you join and complete each daily event, it shouldn't take long to reach Bronze Level, and that means for every 100 Fitwell points offered for an event, you would earn 112.5 points (but they round up to 113), and you'd earn 11 Fitwell points for those events that offer 10. Keep pushing to get to Silver Level and you'd get 125 Fitwell points for the larger events, and 12.5 Fitwell points (but they'll round up and give you 13!) for those that offer 10. The benefits are even greater when you reach Gold and Diamond Levels, so keep pushing!
Teams can have a number of members, but only five team members are allowed on the roster for any particular event. You can be on more than one team, but only on the roster for an event with one team. I manage four teams that I enter into every event, and can move members around on the roster to capitalize on individual strengths for that event so that both teams have a good shot at completing the event and getting the points. I also manage a Facebook group so that team members can communicate and encourage each other daily since the setup on Leap4Life isn't the greatest.
So ... if you want to earn money while exercising, or just need some extra motivation and encouragement (I've got plenty of that to go around!), let me know when you've signed up for Leap4Life and I'll get you headed in that direction. Leave a comment here or send me a PM on Facebook to let me know that you've joined so that we can connect as friends on L4L (it won't automatically connect us for some reason).
Don't wait until tomorrow. Make every step count today!
