Get Fit at Work with the Race to the Moon Wellness Program!

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


I am a member of the Wellness Committee at work.  During the school year, we brainstorm various ideas for exercise programs, incentive programs, and educational programming to implement.  Many staff members participate and they find it motivating to work together. 
I recently learned about Cafe Well, which is a social network that offers corporate wellness programs.  Café Well offers members the opportunity to learn about various health issues and connect with members who are interested in the same topic(s).  You can become involved in daily challenges that motivate, inspire, and teach!  You also have the ability to create your own discussion groups.    
Race to the Moon is a corporate wellness program that is hosted by Café Well and sponsored by HealthAmerica.  By providing free wireless pedometers, Race to the Moon encourages and motivates members to get fit by walking and/or running.  Believe it or not, the program has members that have walked over 50 million steps and average 2.5 million steps per day. That’s simply amazing!  Race to the Moon participants have the opportunity to win great prizes!
Race to the Moon sounds like a fabulous well program for our staff members.  It is difficult for so many of us with young children to either get to a gym or complete a full workout.  If I am not at work, I typically have a toddler strapped to my leg!  It makes it nearly impossible to complete a workout regimen unless it is 9:00pm!  I think that creating challenges with staff members could be really fun and motivating.  I can envision us doing a challenge for total steps taken in a week or month, eating more fruits and vegetables, and total weight loss in a month.  I will certainly be mentioning this to my colleagues on Monday!

  1. Sounds like an interesting program. Thanks for the info

  2. That's such a good idea! My sister goes to the gym with a coworker, but it's hard for them to make the time. I think they'd appreciate this program.

  3. I had never heard of this before. What a great concept!
