FitLinxx provides all of its employees, The Pebble™ an all-day activity tracker that motivates people to be active anytime, anywhere. (www.fitlinxx.net/pebble-activity-monitor.htm ). FitLinxx then asks that each employee complete one of two levels of physical activity during each quarter of the year.
When the employee is successful a reward is offered, the first for achieving the first level of healthy activity recommended by the Chief Medical Officer and a slightly higher level if the second level is achieved, thus promoting better health benefits.
FitLinxx achieves success rates of 97% participation and 77% achievement of these two levels of activity and actively promotes the philosophy of live actively be well.
