Cafe’ Well: The Social Network to Get Well and Stay Well!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cafe Well for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

What would you say if I told you about a social network that offers corporate wellness programs and they actually work? Does the company you work for offer one?

One such corporate wellness program is called Race to the Moon. It aims to get members more active and fit by walking or running. How do they accomplish this goal? They offer free wireless pedometers which tracks their steps and rewards them for milestones and total steps!

What's even better is this program actually works! In just under one month, Race to the Moon has participants who have walked over 50 MILLION steps and average 2.5 million steps per day!

Race to the Moon is hosted by the social network site Cafe Well and sponsored by HealthAmerica. Why is the program so successful? It is  fun, rewarding, and effective because it leverages the power and support of social networking with incentives.

If I were to create a health challenge, I think it would be related to fitness. I would gather my blogging colleagues as well as my personal friends and maybe compare which "team" lost the most weight through fun and enticing activities. I would definitely consider including a well-deserved prize for the winning team.

If YOU were to create a health challenge, what would it be?

  • An office weight loss challeng?
  • Workout challenge with friends?
  • Healthy food challenge?

Feedback is always welcome. I would love to know how you stay active and keep it fun at the same time!

  1. We had something similar to this at a previous company I worked for. We earned points for our healthy behavior and earned prizes!
    We also had a challenge on our own team to help keep each other accountable for fitness; we would add appointments for taking a walk on our calendars, gave stretch breaks between meetings, turned a storage room into a "gym" with weights & stability balls, etc.  It was fun!
    I would probably do another fitness challenge that tracked minutes. I'm a little competitive and I'd want to see my numbers be the highest πŸ˜‰

      I’m the same way when it comes to being competitive. Can’t help it though. When someone presents me with a challenge, I feel I need to win. It’s all in fun though…sort of. πŸ™‚

  2. I think this is a great thing for companies to offer and I think we will see more of it in the future. 

  3. Thanks for the posting tonight
