Getting healthy is always more fun when you do it with someone else. So, the Virgin Pulse option to participate in a company challenge adds a healthy dose of friendly competition to wellness!
You can challenge your friends (colleagues whom you have “friended” in the program) to get moving in a fun, team challenge to take the most steps or burn the most calories.
There are two types of company challenges:
- Step challenges
- Destination challenges
For the Step Challenge, you need to take a certain amount of steps in order to be eligible for a company challenge reward. For example: take 8500 steps per day or 160,000 steps during the three weeks of the challenge.
For the Destination Challenge, you and your team need to accumulate steps to unlock certain virtual destinations around the world map.
Keep in mind, your progress on your virtual destination challenge is based on your team’s total score. You have a better chance of making it to the final destination by building out your team. You can also view your team’s progress toward the final destination on the challenge map.
Note: Before the challenge start date, be on the lookout for an email with all the important details regarding the Challenge, as you do not want to miss your challenge invitation!
Company Challenges will encourage you and your colleagues to use the program daily, and help you achieve your wellness goals over the long term, all while having fun!
