Get Fit, Bit by Bit
How we work:
GetFit Wales aims to increase physical activity levels for those individuals on the project, reduce obesity, and make residents aware of the local services in the area in order to make positive changes to their social outlook and become more involved in community activities.
GetFit.Wales is a platform that rewards people for being active. It works by linking the individuals profile to their Fitbit account and allocates points on the amount of steps achieved over the NHS Choices recommended 10,000 steps per day. Please note that for the Getfit.wales algorithm to award the relevant number of points, the participant will need to sync their Fitbit through the Fitbit app daily.
0 steps – 10,999 : 0 points
11,000 – 11,999 : 1 point
12,000 + : 2 points
Points can be earnt on the website for a maximum of 12 weeks and can be spent on local health provision and food which encourages a healthy lifestyle.
To encourage spend, each point earnt will be kept in the participants online wallet for a length of 30 days. If not spent within the allotted time, the point(s) will be removed to stop hoarding.
