Bringing Communities Together
People were born to live in a community. The people we love, family and friends, often have the most influence over how we eat and spend our time — for better or worse. Clinical trials reveal that 95% of people who shared a weight-loss program with others successfully completed it, while only 76% completed their goal when working alone. The group with the support was also 42% more likely to maintain their healthy weight loss over time. Check out our community case studies below
How Terryberry Wellness Helps Communities
Terryberry Wellness, Walker Tracker App
Terryberry Wellness is your all-in-one well-being app and challenge platform, designed to help members on their health and fitness journey. Participants track key wellness metrics in a social and fun space to motivate them toward healthier living.
The metrics include:
- Heart rate
Personalization is key — with a highly flexible system, you choose the metrics and features that are important to your unique population. The Activity Converter creates an inclusive and accessible experience by converting a wide range of activities, like hiking or swimming, into steps. In community-wide physical activity campaigns, this feature drives engagement for the long term.
Gamified Social Communication
Walker Tracker also brings the interactive fun of social media to community fitness. Members can share their progress and participate in challenges with their peers for friendly competition and motivation. Plus, members are encouraged to journal along the way, share their progress and tips, and connect with others in the challenge discussions.
Walker Tracker creates a motivating atmosphere for your community well-being projects. Through fun virtual map adventures and well-being-focused journeys, members are encouraged to adopt healthy habits.
Automated notifications, progress updates, and real-time data insights make the app highly engaging.
The points system levels the playing field so marathon runners and fitness newbies can participate in the same challenges. When the focus is consistency and progress, not rivalry, your organization grows healthier together.
People love challenges! They are time-bound and specific events that allow individuals to focus on a few key wellness metrics and feel a sense of accomplishment in a short period. Walker Tracker has a few options for creating an engaging and fun challenge for your members:
Virtual map: These gamified journeys include exciting educational content that is unlocked along the route as members progress toward the goal. Participants have the opportunity to virtually explore the world (learn about ancient history, travel the world, or interact with wellness-focused content) as they move their way, wherever they are.
Point system: Points-based challenges are a great way to bring all your members together. This feature levels the playing field so beginners and exercise enthusiasts can engage together fairly.
