Health Trails

Join Us for Health Trails!

HealthTrails is a 12-week exercise incentive program that draws on the excitement of seeing and learning about new places and people by tracing famous trails around the world. It is a fun, free way to encourage your to get moving and to earn your physical activity wellness incentive at the end of the year.

How does it work?

Each time you record a HealthTrails activity you move along the trail. As you progress, you’ll see great images and vivid descriptions of that location as if you’re right there. It’s a fun, effective way to track health habits because you actually see your progress each time you record an activity.

What is the program goal?

Your goal is to travel 600+ virtual miles along the trails — you have 11 to choose from (with distances of 148-467 miles). If you record at least 30 minutes of exercise a day/5 days a week, drink 48-80 ounces of water/5 days week, take two 2-minute time outs daily/5 nights a week, you’ll reach 600 miles easily. And you can add to your mileage by taking the daily Tip Test. Aim for at least 50 miles a week to achieve the goal in 12 weeks.

When does the program start?

You may begin recording activity on January 23.
