Opportunity for Change
Mile Club- Employees log their activity on the website. For every 15 minutes of activity they complete, they earn one mile. At each milestone 100, 500 and every 500 miles beyond, they will receive a Mile Club t-shirt
Go the Distance- This is one of our most popular programs. The idea is for teams of three to exercise 150 miles to a destination. For every 15 minutes of activity it brings them one mile closer to the goal. After eight weeks, anyone on a team that has exercised their portion of the distance is eligible for the drawing.
Healthy Snack Day- This is a day to raise awareness that eating healthy can taste good! Tasty, healthy snacks are made available for employees, with healthy nutrition information.
Holiday Hold Out- During the holiday season, the average American gains five to seven pounds! To help employees avoid gaining those extra pounds, and the resulting post-holiday blues, they have to stay within 3 pounds of their starting weight. We have them weigh-in before Thanksgiving, again in mid-December and the final weigh-ins are held after New Years Day. These weigh-ins help employees keep their weight in check. Participants who stay within 3 pounds of their starting weight are eligible for a prize drawing.
Healthy Holiday Calendar- Each week, for two months, (mid November to mid January) employees are given 7 wellness tasks that will help them to stay well during the hectic holiday season. Those who complete a minimum of 5 tasks a week are entered in a weekly drawing for prizes.
Biggest Loser Contest- We will organize a weight loss challenge for your employees. We provide coaching and motivation during the contest as well as the mechanisms for employees to report their weight. Those who lose or maintain their weight will be entered in a weekly drawing for prizes. The male and female who lose the greatest amount of weight will receive a grand prize.
5 for 5 Challenge- For one work week employees will be challenged to eat at least 5 servings of fruits and/or vegetables each day. A Log that helps educate individuals as to what a serving size is will be provided. Employees who eat 5 for 5 are eligible for a prize drawing.
Bike to Work Day- This program is simple! Bike to work and you're in the drawing for a prize!
Poker Walk- A walking route (20 to 30 minute walk) will be set up with stations for employees to draw cards. They will pick a card at each station and the best 5 card poker hands will win great prizes! Walk at your own pace. No card playing experience is needed.
