Step your way to better health! Health Net’s Step It Up Challenge begins in January

couple-walkingHealth Net is launching an exciting new way for your employees to improve their health – the Step It Up Challenge.

We’ve designed the challenge to help you monitor your physical activity and to help you create an empowering, healthy lifestyle change that lasts. The program begins Jan. 1, and runs through Dec. 31, 2018.

How does it work?
Throughout 2018, you’ll earn credits as you complete your challenge activities. You’ll earn one credit for every 65,000 steps accumulated and can earn up to 10 credits. If you have a fitness tracker, be sure to link it with our Wellness Center site to automatically upload your daily steps.

No tracker? No problem. Just remember this rule of thumb: On average, 10 minutes of physical activity is equal to 1,000 steps. Continue accumulating steps and earning those credits all year long.
