The program is all about making small, consistent changes in your lifestyle that will go a long way toward a healthier you - plus there will be some cash in your pocket for your effort! You can use several other tracking devices with the program such as Fitbit, Polar Heart Monitor and Misfit and several apps such as Endomondo, Virgin Pulse and Runkeeper.

Virgin HealthMiles, a gamified employee wellness program, announced that, starting in October, it will let employees invite up to three family members to use the program for free. Between adding family members and drawing in new members because of the perk, Virgin HealthMiles expects its user base to see a big boost in the next year. Because of privacy concerns, only family members 14 or older will be able to participate in HealthMiles' online and mobile platform, at least at first. Overtime, Hildebrandt said, he expects the platform will support younger participants. Focus group testing revealed that the app and website didn't need to be modified to appeal to teenagers, so the company isn't changing it much.
Virgin HealthMiles, the Virgin Group company that was one of the early entrants into the digital employee health and wellness, is rebranding as Virgin Pulse, a change that CEO Chris Boyce says will reflect the company's focus on not just health , but employee engagement.
