Joyce activated AIA Vitality’s Apple Watch Benefit (meaning she can earn her Apple Watch for free by meeting her weekly Active Benefits targets), and used the smartwatch with the walking school bus programme as a strategy to get in shape. “The Apple Watch is super helpful – it helps me track my daily activity and encourages me to get up and exercise,” she says.
“It really helped me get in touch with AIA Vitality and my body, and even encouraged me to work out more at home. I get at least 7,500 steps every day to get my 50 AIA Vitality Points, then I get on the treadmill for another 30 minutes after work for another 50 points.”
The daily morning walks helped Joyce lose some weight, but the greatest benefit has been an uplift in her mood and lifestyle. “I feel better and more confident,” Joyce explains. “Exercise is always something that I wanted to do but always founds reasons to neglect it. AIA Vitality’s programme encouraged me to continue with the walking school bus each day – so much so that I introduced another parent to AIA Vitality, and now she’s got an Apple Watch of her own. She’s loving how easy the programme is to use from the get-go.”
