A:  Now in our third year, the FICO Fitness Challenge is an annual proclamation by myFICO Forums members, declaring where they want to see their FICO scores in the coming year.  FICO Fitness Challengers announce their starting FICO scores, current scores, goal scores, and how they intend to reach their FICO goals.  Over the past couple of years, more than a thousand myFICO Forums members have found the FICO Fitness Challenge to be a great way to hold themselves personally accountable and stay on course toward better financial health.

    • Go to Take the FICO Fitness Challenge for 2012! where you'll click "Reply" and tell the community a little about your financial situation, your present scores, goal scores, and how you plan to get there.

Q:  What do you win?

A:  By taking the FICO Fitness Challenge, you can expect to receive:

    • More than $50,000 over the life of a $300,000 30-year mortgage by seeing your FICO scores go from 650 to 700
    • More than  $6,000 over the life of a $20,000 5-year auto loan by seeing your FICO scores go from 600 to 700
