Web, iPhone, and Android step challenge apps

Our website as well as our iPhone and Android apps allow your participants to get into teams, track their daily step count, compete on leaderboards and move themselves along one of our 300+ virtual walks.

Creating a fun health initiative is a simple and cost effective way to engage with your employees and increase motivation in the workplace, not to mention that it's a great way of boosting mental and physical wellbeing. With the addition of achievements and team leaderboards you can now help encourage some friendly competition between colleagues!

Getting started takes a few minutes and we'll always be happy to help answer any questions you might have about the system.

Step Challenge Leaderboards

In order to help encourage some friendly rivalry in your challenge you can choose to enable several different leaderboards for teams and individuals. These will enable your users to keep track of their team's overall position, their individual progress and even create a leaderboard of their favourite teams.

Departments, locations or other 'segments' can also now compete against each other in their own unique leaderboards.

Watch the video below to find out more.

When you set up your challenge you can choose to enable one leaderboard or all three, it's entirely up to you and what you think works best for your workplace.

Teams: Total Distance
A list of all of your teams as well as their total distances.

Teams: Average Distance
This also displays all of your teams, but this time displays their average total based on the number of people on their team.
So a team of 3 can compete evenly against a team of 10.

Individuals: Total Distance
Instead of displaying all of the teams, this leaderboard shows all of the individual users from every team.

Over 300 step challenge routes to choose from.

All of our step challenges use a real world virtual walking route that stops off at interesting and unusual milestones along the way.

We've had a great response from our users about the routes and how much they enjoy learning about somewhere new around the world while they get out and about in their daily walk.

Challenge modes

Build friendly competition or use team work to get everyone across the finish line.

When setting up your custom challenge, you can choose to either run it as a fun and friendly competition, with teams trying to complete the route and beat the others to the finish line, or as a group activity with each team contributing to the total distance.

Teams Vs Teams (most popular)
Our most popular mode and the easiest to set up; Teams vs Teams allows your participants to get into smaller teams and compete against each other on a leaderboard. This mode is a fun way to build some friendly competition and inspire daily physical activity.

One Big Challenge
All of your participants still get into teams, but now every team's total is pooled together to move everyone along the virtual map at the same time. This is a great way of seeing more of the world as you can cover much greater distances together!
