Tracker Module

The Tracker Module was created for users to track additional healthy behaviors outside of standard game play. The 5 categories covered in the Tracker include:

Strength: Any strength training activities performed outside of a game (ex. 30 minutes of Strength Training performed at the gym).
Endurance: Any endurance training activities performed outside of a game (ex. 30 minutes of Cardiovascular Training).
Flexibility: Any flexibility training activities performed outside of a game (ex. 30 minutes of Yoga).
Diet: Specific diet/nutrition based activities (ex. Eat 3-5 servings of vegetables).
Lifestyle: Specific lifestyle based activities (ex. Power Down Bonus! – Our bodies operate off of a circadian rhythm that responds to light and darkness. Excess light in the evening can disrupt sleep. Select this activity if you turned off the TV/Computer or other electronic device at least 1 hour before bed.)

Progress Module

The Progress Module was created to give users a sense of their overall advancement on a weekly basis. In addition to Stars Earned towards 150 minutes per week of activity, users can also view the accumulation of Total Activity Points in the 5 categories of: Strength, Endurance, Flexibility, Diet and Lifestyle.

Stars Earned: Reflects your approximate progress towards the accepted standard of 150 minutes of activity per week.
Weekly Progress: Users can view their current or historical Progress by clicking on each Week.
