MoveSpring challenge modes include individual, collaborative, team, and individual daily habit modes.
Individual modes focus around individual or personal goals, collaborative modes combine participant data together for cumulative scores, team modes allow participants to compete on teams, and individual daily habit modes allow you to set an individual goal based on a custom activity, like completing 5 push ups a day or practicing meditation.
Depending on the module you choose, goals can be based on either steps, distance, active minutes, or custom activity completion.
The Streak mode encourages healthy habits as users try to meet a step, distance, or minutes goal every day for a specified period of time. Users should try to meet their daily goal as many days in a row as possible.
Example: Everyone in the challenge has a goal to reach 30 active minutes per day during a 14 day challenge.
As an admin, you can view the percentage of days each user hits their goal. For example, if a user meets their Streak goal for 11 days during a 14 day challenge, they would receive a 79% completion score on your report.
Stick To It
Stick To It allows participants to ease into a healthy habit. Set a daily steps, distance, or minutes goal, then determine the total number of times you want participants to meet it over the course of a challenge. With Stick To It, it’s okay if participants miss a few days!
Example: Reach 30 daily active minutes 20 times over the next 2 months.
The Target mode allows you to set a total steps, distance, or minutes goal to achieve over a period of time. A user’s score is the sum of their activity over the course of the challenge. We calculate a daily pace to help users stay on track.
Example: Everyone in the challenge has a target goal of reaching 100,000 steps in 10 days.
As an admin, you can view the percentage each user hits. For example, if a user gets 89,800 out of their goal of 100,000, they would receive a 90% completion score on your report.
The Leaderboard mode has users to compete for the top spot. Participants are ranked from high to low based on their steps, distance, or minutes moved. Rankings are based on total activity.
Example: All 50 people in the Chicago office are competing as individuals to get the most steps over the course of May.
The Virtual Race mode allows users to compete in a virtual long distance race. Track progress in real time along the virtual race path. Experience fun surprises and milestones throughout the virtual race!
Example: Complete a 99 mile virtual race across the Florida Keys.
Group Target combines the activity totals of all participants to achieve a collective goal. Set a total steps, distance, or minutes goal for the group to reach over a specified period of time. We calculate an average individual target for every participant to work towards. This is great for team building and less competitive groups.
Example: As a group of 20 participants, collectively reach 1 million steps over 5 days. Each participant should try to reach 50,000 steps each over the course of 5 days.
Group Virtual Race
Group Virtual Race allows participants to take on a fun, illustrated map as a team by combining the distance totals of all participants into one score. All participants will help move a marker through the map to unlock milestones and new scenes together!
Example: Everyone works together to complete a 5,000 mile group race across the world.
Group Target Fundraiser
Encourage your group to step for a good cause. With Group Target Fundraiser, for a certain amount of steps, distance, or minutes moved, your organization or another donor commits to donate a specified amount.
Example: Acme Co. will donate $10,000 to St. Jude’s when the group reaches 10 million steps.
Team Leaderboard is a competitive challenge mode that encourages participants to work together to win the top spot. Teams of individuals are ranked from high to low based on their steps, distance, or minutes moved. Rankings are based off the team’s average total activity. See our Team Challenge Best Practices here.
Example: All the offices across the country compete against each other to be the team with the highest average total step count.
Team Virtual Race
Move with your team in a competitive, virtual long distance race to reach the top spot. Track progress in real time along the virtual race path. Teams of individuals are ranked from high to low based on their distance moved. Rankings are based off the team’s average total distance. See our Team Challenge Best Practices here.
Example: Complete a 150 mile virtual race with your team across Acme Co.’s midwest office locations.
Individual Daily Habit modes
Custom Activity Challenges are compatible with two challenge modes: Streak and Stick to it. Each challenge mode asks users to complete a custom daily goal.
Users try to complete the daily goal as many days in a row as possible.
Example: In a Streak challenge, your participants may be challenged to drink 6 glasses of water every day of the challenge, trying to never miss a day.
Stick To It
Users work towards a total number of completions, such as 10 daily goal completions over the course of a month.
Example: In a Stick To It challenge, your participants may be challenged to drink 6 glasses of water at least 15 times over the course of a 30-day challenge.
MoveSpring is about bringing people together in health — and that doesn't always mean encouraging more physical activity. Mental health and general wellbeing are important too! That's why we have three engagement modules so you can communicate with your group to keep them motivated and engaged beyond our challenge modes.
The Content module is a blank slate for you, as an admin, to post articles, videos, and updates for your group to see and engage with. Post content right away, or schedule it to display in the app at a later time during a challenge. Pro and Ultimate clients also have access to our Content Library to help you save time and effort!
Example: Schedule daily 5-minute meditation videos to post in the app at 8am every morning for your challenge. Ask users to like the video if they completed it and comment if they thought the videos helped their mindfulness throughout the day.
The Quote module populates a new motivational quote in your challenge every day — no work on your part. As an admin, you can see all of the quotes ahead of time and replace any quotes you don't want to include.
Example: “Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.” —Stephen Hawking
The Daily Workout module automatically posts a new workout video every day of your challenge. Each workout consists of five exercises. Users can click the thumbnail straight from the MoveSpring dashboard to watch the latest workout.
Example: Learn five exercises, such as Quick Feet, Deadlift, Decline Push-up, Hip Bridge, and Side Lunge, then aim to do each exercise for 60 seconds!
*Clients on Essentials plans are limited to the 3 basic individual challenge modes (Leaderboard, Streak, and Target) plus the 3 engagement modules (Content, Quote, and Daily Workout). Pro and Ultimate clients receive full access to all modules. Contact email@example.com if you are on the Essentials plan and are interested in upgrading your subscription to gain access to additional challenge modes.
