Add Points for Activity, Your Way

Your weekly Budget called—it wants to add Points® for everything you do to build a stronger body. And you get to work out exactly how you work out. Allow us to explain.

Boost mood! Improve self-esteem! Lower risk of disease! If the benefits of staying active came in a box, it could boast all of the above. We’d also slap one more benefit on the label: Regular physical activity paired with healthier eating habits (hello, PersonalPoints™!) leads to 20% more weight loss.

Who doesn’t want in on that? But, first, a Q: What does physical activity actually look like?

Is it you dripping in sweat? No. is it you training for a 10K? Only if that’s your thing. Ultimately, activity looks like things that don’t necessarily have to look like working out. Daily stuff—cleaning your house, weeding your garden, chasing your dog—it all counts. Literally.

If you are living with diabetes, consult with your healthcare provider to make sure a specific activity is safe for you and to find out whether you should check your blood sugar before and/or after doing the activity.

Get. It. In!

Three ways to move more

  • On your phone: Obé fitness has tons of instructor-led cardio, core, yoga, Pilates, and stretching workouts—and they’re right in the WW app! You can tally your activity manually. Or sync your fitness device to the WW app and watch the Points automatically roll into your weekly Budget as you move.

  • In person: Your WW membership entitles you to three free workout classes with Orangetheory, a heart rate–based total-body group workout. Or test-drive something new with ClassPass—choose from thousands of cool fitness classes at studios and gyms near you.

  • When you’re not in the mood: Try temptation bundling and pair whatever you’re putting off (say, 10 minutes of yoga) with whatever sparks joy (maybe the latest episode of that series everyone is bingeing on). Soon, those endorphins will be kicking in.

P.S. No matter how you decide to get moving, your Budget isn’t the only thing that’ll grow: Every day you track activity, you’ll also earn 5 Wins with our WellnessWins® rewards program. The best part? It happens automatically, so all you need to do is watch your Wins pile up. Redeem ’em for must-have swag, fitness gear, gift cards, and more.
