WHAT IS IT?
WE ARE ON A MISSION:
TO ADVANCE THE SCIENCE OF MOTIVATION AND WELLNESS.
Steps for Science is a free program designed to help the Fit For Bucks community achieve their 2022 fitness goals and advance the science of motivation and wellness. The program was designed in partnership with a team of researchers at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, committed to using insights from psychology to help people improve their decisions and follow through on their goals.
HOW YOU CAN HELP!
Check your email! In mid-January, members of the Fit For Bucks community will receive an email inviting them to participate in an online interactive survey about their fitness goals. It takes only ~5 minutes but we hope it impacts your fitness far longer!
The survey closes on Monday, January 24, 2022, and the research continues throughout the year. Once results are in, you’ll be the first to know!
As a thank you for helping advance this research partnership, participating members get 100,000 bonus steps in the Fit For Bucks app and a chance to win one of five $100 Amazon gift cards.
If you have any questions about the program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
