How A Step Ahead is Different Click to learn what makes A Step Ahead unlike any other corporate challenge.

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.
