Launched in 2012, FIX’s expansion into 2017 continues to be disruptive in an otherwise conservative, stagnant and transformative wellness space.
The Ultimate Corporate Walking Challenge™
A Step Ahead™ is a revolutionary new corporate challenge developed by video game designers to engage employees in a fun, healthy 6 or 12-week walking challenge that draws game progress from real-world activity.
“If one thing is clear, it’s that the game works.”
“Who wouldn’t want to turn as many co-workers as possible into zombies?”
“Anybody can participate, regardless of whether they’re a luddite or the early adopter.”

“When the gaming came in, that other 25 percent all got engaged.”
“…one of the best ways to get reluctant adopters onboard is to disguise their task within a game.”
“The social connectivity pushes players to not quit on their friends.”

A Walking Challenge That’s… Fun?
More than just another 10,000 steps program, A Step Ahead challenges your employees to team up in a 6 or 12-week story-driven challenge where teams’ real-life steps and activity translate into progress across a virtual game board.
MULTIPLE STORY THEMES
for endless outcomes
#1 for Engagement
We have set new participation records for literally every group we’ve ever worked with, and we maintain participation. On average, 80-95% of participants remain active through to the end of our challenges. Nothing else even comes anywhere close.

BORING IS BORING
Why Other Challenges Crash and Burn
Putting badges and a leaderboard on an otherwise boring challenge doesn’t make it fun. Traditional corporate wellness walking challenges have strong participation at the start, but often tank after the first two weeks. Why? Because that’s about how long it takes to get bored with a static experience.
BREAKING THE MOLD
Why A Step Ahead is Different
A Step Ahead is the result of video game designers looking at a traditionally boring segment and saying, “If we were going to design a walking challenge, what would it look like?” The result is a team-based, story-driven game experience that gets groups active and engaged.
EMPLOYEES LOVE US
You Really Really Love Us
Companies love us. Employees love us. The results speak for themselves: three out of four companies who try A Step Ahead once sign up for another challenge, and over 90% of employee participants indicate that they want to continue to the next episode after a challenge ends.
Can your company survive the zombie outbreak?
Embark on an epic journey to track down a cure while staying ahead of a chasing zombie horde. Teams who fall behind risk turning into zombies… whose new job is to chase down and turn their coworkers into zombies too!
More Than Just Badges and a Leaderboard
With episodic stories in an ever-expanding fictional universe, fun game mechanics, team goals and bonuses, boss battles, and our secret sauce, A Step Ahead gets groups active and keeps them active with new content, new goals, and new challenges each week.
