How well do you play with others? This week, Healthper launched their latest feature, “Zodiac Teams” based on the simple concept that "team play" creates healthy and friendly competition.
Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) May 15, 2012
Until now, Healthper members have been rewarded points and ranking based on their personal play. The team function allows members to join like-minded participants in their quest for greater health. There’s one twist, these members share the same zodiac sign! Narinder Makin, Co-Founder and Lead Architect at Healthper said “Team building has always been a popular aspect of any competitive program that rewards participants for a positive outcome. What we have done is made it both interesting and entertaining by allowing the zodiac to determine which team suits you best.”
“Teams” were created on Healthper to increase commitment to a healthier lifestyle and create change. A strong team player will show up every day, and that will produce a winning online environment. Feeling good about what you and your teammates have accomplished, will translate into your everyday life. Subsequently, by joining a team, you are increasing your social network and enhancing your wellness experience.
Members contribute to their team by playing daily health cards for points and engaging in social connectedness via the “Healthpad”. Here, contributions range from healthy living tips, motivation, personal progress reporting, questions to the community and general socialization with other Healthper members. Makin believes that “seeking encouragement from another can help keep someone inspired and engaged in an activity.” Additionally, knowing that you play a pivotal role in the success or failure of your team can help propel enthusiasm for the task at hand. Team members can check daily team rankings and get a more in-depth look at their standing via weekly reporting. So, what’s your sign?
