Start! Physical Activity Program
The Health Plus START! Physical Activity Program
Physical activity is part of a healthy lifestyle. The CDC recommends that adults get 150 minutes of physical activity per week. The START! Physical Activity tracker helps you track your activity and encourages you to live an active lifestyle.
The Start! Physical Activity tracker launched in 2008, and since then, we’ve logged a total of almost 9.5 billion steps or 4.7 million miles! That’s enough steps to circle the world 190 times!
Join us this year as we step it up with the ALL NEW Start! Activity Tracker.
Features of the new tracker:
- Sync fitness wearables and apps (FitBit, Garmin, MapMyRun, and more!)
- All new Design and layout
- Earn Points for activities entered
- Rate the intensity of your activity
- Log notes to help you track important details
The tracker is easy to use. Log your physical activity daily or weekly. Figure out what works best for you and then commit to logging activity on a regular basis.
You can enter active minutes in the tracker. Activities like swimming, walking, and team sports are all part of living an active lifestyle. The tracker will convert to points to help you reach your goal. For example, 30 minutes of “easy” intensity walking will convert to 150 points.
Log your activity and help us reach a collective goal of 100,000,000 points by December 31, 2015.
Getting “started” is easy! Visit the Health Plus HealthGuide and log in using your VUnetID and ePassword. On the left side menu, click “Track” and then the “Get Active” tab. Here you log your duration, distance or step total with an intenstiy level, depending on the activity.
