How does it work?
My Health Coach: Weight Management (DS) BMI screen1. Personalise it
Create your personal profile and evaluate your improvement potential. Then set up your objectives following the recommendations based on your profile. For each profile, the BMI (Body Mass Index) is automatically calculated. The BMI measures your height/weight ratio. It is your weight in kilograms divided by the square of your height in meters (so, if you weigh 65 kilograms and are 1.73 metres tall, you would have a BMI of 65 / (1.73 x 1.73) = 21.7 ). The program will then suggest personalized strategies in correlation with you BMI.
2. Get your daily objectives
Lose weight? Eat better? Exercise more? Choose your way to get a healthier lifestyle depending on your own needs and objectives.
The game includes 10 coaching sessions to help you define your profile and set your new objectives. 10 to 15 minutes every day are sufficient to achieve your objectives.
3. Challenge yourself
Between 300 and 500 fun Challenges depending on your profile and your needs: "Don't use any elevators or escalators for an entire day", "Sit in the lotus position for 15 minutes", "Have two bowls of vegetable soup"...
Accept daily challenges, play games, takes quizzes and track your daily activity with the pedometer.
4. Track your progress
You can constantly measure your achievements (on a weekly basis or overall) through the progression tracking system.
* Pedometer = watch the steps you walked during the day, compare, and have a look at the number of steps you've walked since you have begun the training program.
* Balance = check the balance between your alimentation and physical activity. See at a glance if for each day of the week you had a well-balanced lifestyle.
* Graphs = watch your personal evolution in terms of weight, BMI, distance travelled during the last 7 days or during the last 6 months, and total progress.
