Virgin Pulse Walking Program

To jump-start your fitness plan, the Center for Health offers the Virgin Pulse physical activity program.

Virgin Pulse

A healthier lifestyle may be the most difficult personal improvement to undertake, but even small changes can make a big difference.

Virgin Pulse participants receive an activity tracker to monitor progress toward health goals and rewards. Participants: wear the activity tracker at all times and accrue steps when you walk, run, bike, play basketball or tennis, golf, dance or take part in any other physical activities you enjoy. Earn HealthMiles* for accumulating steps or “active minutes”—which are recorded when your activity tracker counts at least 135 steps in a minute for higher intensity activity.

HealthMiles translate into rewards like HealthCash, health insurance premium reductions, or deposits in a health savings account—depending on what your plan sponsor offers.
