Importantly – and only by choice - significant people in your life can be invited on your journey. They can support your goals or share your success. Your experience may become an inspiration for them. Either way, the power of our community is at your fingertips.

You may also discover a number of new friends or communities with similar interests, goals, lifestyles. Or you might find new competitors for encouraging and challenging each other.

playing the games

Healthper assists you in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Inside, you’ll find our daily health cards shown on your HealthDeck. Each card involves a simple healthy activity that you perform to advance in the game. Currently there are 3 types of activity-based cards:

Daily health card (10 points each) – these are cards with unique pictures identifying the activity you could do. For example, the blood pressure card is called “Cool and Calm” and the fruit card is called “Fruitopia.” These cards operate on their own cycles, and by completing the required entries you earn the assigned points.

Daily Cards

Challenge cards (20 points each) – these cards are usually presented following successful completion of one or more cycles of daily cards. When presented, the challenge allows you to have a family member or friend engaged in one of your a healthy activities. For example, going to work out together, sharing healthy recipes or verifying some of your progress. Your friend must confirm that you actually did the activity in order for you to collect the points. We will be introducing many different ways for you to play with and challenge your friends.

Challenge Cards

Pro Challenge cards (30 points each) – when presented, each of these cards step up the game. You must usually offer proof of you doing the requested activity. For example, check-in using your mobile phone or connect a WiFI enabled wellness device to verify your input. When confirmed, you are awarded the appropriate points.

Pro Cards

How do you get the gold badges (40 points each)?

You must complete a certain number of daily cards, challenges and pro challenges each month. Your objective is to do the activities as much as you can, in order to try and beat our secret rules. For example, you have to do certain numbers of hours of physical activity per month and complete your physical activity challenges to get the gold badge for physical activity. We may change the rules every month, so you have to figure out how to beat the system, making it fun and interesting! It also keeps you honest, actually performing the activities. We give you 40 points for every gold badge you get. So, go ahead, and show off to your friends how many gold badges you can get!

Gold Badge

What is the GOLD REVEAL card? Why do I get this card?

When you don’t “pass” our secret rule for any health category, then you’ll see the GOLD colored REVEAL card. These cards disclose something about you and the activity you were expected to do. For example, if you didn’t eat enough vegetables, then it reveals something about why vegetables are important in your diet. It also may offer products or programs including special deals that you may take advantage of, related to your diet, such as a grocery coupon for a health food store. If you take advantage of a special deal, product or program, you can also get 40 points! But sorry, the Gold Badges are only given when you meet our secret rule and actually pass the requirement for any given health activity. So keep trying to get that badge every month.
