How can I be part of the PowerUp Health community?
It is as simple as joining our Discord community, everyone is welcome. discord.gg/JAYyWX2
PowerUp is a supportive, judgement free environment. We NEVER discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, disability, illness, sexual orientation, personal appearance or size. This applies to our community members and Team PowerUp applicants.
Do I have to be healthy to be a part of the community?
No. Everyone has a different definition of healthy. No matter your definition, no matter if you are just thinking of getting healthier, are currently following a healthy regimen, or are as healthy as an ox - there is a place for you here. We support one another in our goals and maintain good health, there is no reason to go at it alone so join the cluster!
How can I incorporate healthy habits into my live streams?
Many of the Team PowerUp streamers promote healthy habits on stream, and in many different ways. Some perform work outs when commands are triggered (push-ups, burpies, squats, etc.), others have reminders to drink water or get up for a stretch break at timed intervals, and some simply encourage positive behavior and healthy habits while streaming. Find what works for you and try it out!
Why can't I vape on stream? Vaping isn't the same as smoking so what is so bad about it?
While it is recognized that vaping is safer than traditional smoking, the use of nicotine is habit-forming and studies suggest that inhaling the drug via e-cigs or vaporizers "vaping" may contribute to heart disease. Also there is evidence that it can deliver some toxic stuff too, such as formaldehyde (a known carcinogen), nitrosamines (linked to cancer) and lead (a neurotoxin). Vaping and smoking does not align with PowerUp's mission to promote healthy habits.
What is Team PowerUp's policy regarding drinking on stream?
If you are of legal drinking age, drinking alcohol may offer some health benefits, especially for your heart according to Mayo Clinic. On the other hand, alcohol may not benefit everyone who drinks it and too much alcohol may increase your risk of health problems and damage your heart. For some, it's safest to avoid alcohol altogether as the benefits don't outweigh the risks. PowerUp does not encourage drinking. If you do, please drink responsibly and consider drinking from a solid colored container. Drunk streams, partying on cam, or taking shots of hard alcohol in exchange for subscribers/donations/etc. does not align with PowerUp's mission to promote healthy habits and is against Mixer Rules of User Conduct (ToS) and Twitch Community Guidelines.
My application wasn't approved for Team PowerUp, can I apply again?
