As a work at home mom and wife, I will admit, I don't get enough physical activity and exercise and these days, I have packed on 15 lbs. that I need to lose. Today, I want to tell you about CafeWell, a social network site to Get Well and to Stay Well and how they partnered with Altius for a new health and wellness program called Reach for the Peaks.
CafeWell and Altius are offering their members wireless pedometers to help encourage their members to get up and moving and to engage in more physical activity. I think that is a fabulous program because I know I could personally use some motivation!
CafeWell is helping to bridge the gap between health plans and their members by educating their members on a variety of health, fitness and nutrition topics. CafeWell is very easy to use and offers their member a free and safe environment to help improve their health.
A program like the fantastic "Reach for the Peaks" encourages physical activity and includes award prizes and social mentions. Doesn't that sound cool? I think so! CafeWell provides free tips and information (including motivation) from Olympic athletes, health and wellness experts, diet and nutrition experts, etc. I think that is very nice to have all of those experts available to help answer questions, offer support and of course, motivate you to become a healthier person.
Here are a few testimonials from a few of their valued members:
"I'm absolutely thrilled with this motivating program."
"So today I am taking a step forward to get up off the couch and to become healthy. I am overweight, underpaid and not so full of energy. I know if I think I can, I CAN."
I think this is the type of program that I need to help motivate me to turn off the computer and to take more breaks from my online work and get more physical activity going on daily within my own life. Perhaps having a buddy from CafeWell will motivate me to do so!
CafeWell is FREE to join so head on over there today and check it all out! I think you will be glad that you did!
