Frequently Asked Questions

How do participants earn Wellable Points for walking and running?

Wellable Points can be earned by tracking distance traveled from walking and running through one of Wellable’s partner apps or by manually logging these activities in a Wellable User Account.

Are there any limitations for team sizes?

There is no limit to the number of participants that can be part of a team, so teams can be any size. Wellable recommends creating teams of between four and eight members to ensure the benefits of being part of a team are achieved while maintaining accountability.

How are teams ranked?

Teams are ranked by the average number of Wellable Points for all members of a team. This means that teammates with zero Wellable Points during a challenge will lower the score of the entire team, which is why encouraging your teammates to stay active throughout the challenge is so important.
