The National Steps Challenge™ is the world’s first population level, fitness tracker-based physical activity initiative that encourages Singaporeans to move more.
By leveraging behavioural insights and technology, the Challenge encourages Singaporeans to take more steps and clock moderate-to-vigorous physical activities daily as part of their everyday lives. They do so using a fitness tracker and the Healthy 365 mobile application.
It also rewards them when they reach different physical activity milestones. Participants can look forward to exciting sub-challenges and thematic challenges – all geared towards making moving more fun.
The National Steps Challenge™ has been well received and these are some of its milestone moments:
Season 5 of the Challenge attracted over 910,000 sign-ups
Results show that participants’ overall physical activity levels have improved, both in exercise volume and intensity
From Season 4 to Season 5, there were 7% more participants who engaged in the recommended 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity per week
How You Can Participate:
Eligible participants can collect a HPB Fitness Tracker or use compatible fitness devices and pair these with the Healthy 365 app. Once done, users can clock steps and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity minutes to earn rewards.
