New Worksite Wellness Challenge Mobile App Launched by Health Enhancement Systems

Midland, MI (PRWEB) June 01, 2013

With the release of its new mobile wellness program Ola Ala, Health Enhancement Systems provides individuals and corporations another practical way to achieve fitness goals. The pilot version of this mobile campaign is set to launch June 3, allowing participants to track physical activity while enjoying virtual tours of destinations throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Wellness professionals who wish to experience Ola Ala first hand can register for the pilot now through June 7, 2013. Health Enhancement Systems President and founder Dean Witherspoon believes Ola Ala will serve as a fun and encouraging platform for participants to increase physical activity while they explore Hawaii’s natural beauty.

“We wanted to create a virtual experience that would make the participant feel like they were actually visiting the islands — and if they haven’t already, make plans to take the trip some day,” he explains.

The Ola Ala mobile app, available on both iPhone and Android, offers the option of team participation, allowing employees to support each other and keep track of their coworkers’ progress as they strive toward individual goals. As Witherspoon notes, team participation and social interaction are key components of successful corporate wellness programs.

“People are more likely to maintain a sound fitness routine when receiving encouragement from their friends and coworkers,” he says. “The team element of the Ola Ala mobile app, supplemented by the message board and buddy features, is conducive to sustainable employee wellness.”

The mobile app also offers a variety of other features such as MapWalk, which allows participants to create and share local routes for walking, running, and biking. Accompanying the app are daily health tips, nutritious recipes, and articles pointing participants in the direction of a healthy lifestyle. And while several of these features are available through similar Health Enhancement Systems products such as Get Fit on Route 66, the Ola Ala app offers an awe-inspiring journey through Hawaii’s natural terrain.

“Like many of our other campaigns, the goal of the program is to engage participants with the content so they have a fun, interactive, and motivating way to track their exercise progress,” he says. “What is unique about Ola Ala is that we bring to life the stunning Hawaiian Islands. Participants are rewarded each time they record their activity with a beautiful, surprising image that captures the spirit of America’s 50th state.”

The mobile app offers 150 photos and vivid descriptions of natural scenery from places such as Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Garden of the Gods, and Akaka Falls State Park. Ola Ala, which means “well-being path,” is sure to inspire employees to improve physical fitness as they enjoy and learn about some of the world’s most dazzling sites.
