Regular exercise is vital to your health and wellness. It can help improve your mental health and aid in the management of chronic conditions like hypertension and diabetes. Exercising at the gym may not always be possible due to the Covid-19 pandemic, affecting your consistency and focus on your fitness goals. Here are some practical ideas for exercising at home and earning Active Days no matter what is happening in the world around us.
1. Cycle around the park
It’s time to dust off that old bicycle and hit the road! Strap on your fitness tracking device and enjoy a ride around the park. If you burn 300 calories in one session, you’ll earn an active day. For each active day you earn, you will get a point. The more points you earn, the higher your status and the greater your rewards.
2. Download a wellness app
Download one of the wellness apps on our list from your app store, sign up and pay for the annual subscription fee, and you’ll earn R300 in cashbacks for subscribing. All you must do from thereon is complete your profile, choose your workout and set some time aside to exercise.
3. Create a dedicated workout area at home
Investing in home workout equipment is a great idea. This way, you can enjoy using equipment like the gym machines you are used to even when gyms are closed. As a Momentum Multiply member, home workout equipment does not have to cost an arm and a leg. Just shop at the right places, like our online shop, Makro where you will enjoy up to 12% in cashbacks and loot.co.za where you will enjoy up to 15% in discounts or cashbacks.

How Active Dayz works
Momentum Multiply members enjoy great rewards for being active. If you walk 10 000 steps a day, exercise at the gym, burn 300 calories in one session, play a round of golf or participate in an elite event registered on Entrytime, you will earn an active day. You will then get 1 point for each active day, plus 10 to 20 points for each elite event, with a maximum of 80 points for the year.
