◆ CHALLENGES OF ANY SIZE

Run team-based, fun and inclusive virtual fitness challenges of any size or scale. Participants work together – their solo workouts count towards their team via the app.

GoJoe automatically weights and converts activities to points in the background. Team and solo leaderboards can be accessed in real-time as well as enhanced data insights and awards. Participants engage via team and challenge chat channels.

Whilst GoJoe specialises in global events with an unlimited amount of teams and participants competing in the same challenge, a free version can be accessed in-app which is limited to two teams and up to 10 people per team.

◆ ACTIVITIES FOR ALL

From walking to gym sessions (and many more), activities added to GoJoe are automatically synced and weighted - with no steps or manual conversions in sight - so that everyone is motivated, engaged and on a level playing field.

There’s 40+ activity types to choose from including:-

Movement: Running, Walking, Wheelchair
Biking: Cycling, Spinning, Handcycling
Water sports: Swimming, Canoeing, Kayaking, Paddleboard, Rowing, Surfing, Sailing
Snow sports: Skiing, Snowboarding, Ice Skating
Combat sports: Boxing, Martial Arts
Gym/studio: Strength, HIIT, Yoga, Pilates, Barre, Dance
Racket sports: Tennis, Squash, Badminton, Pickleball
Team sports: Football, Rugby, Netball, Baseball, Basketball, Cricket, Hockey, Volleyball
Other: Golf, Climbing, Horseriding, Skating, Skateboarding

◆ SYNC OR ADD ACTIVITIES WITH EASE

Whether using GoJoe as a fitness tracker, social training tool or virtual event, adding activities is really easy.

You can add workouts to GoJoe in one of three ways - you can either:-

Sync – by connecting Garmin, Fitbit, Wahoo, Polar, Suunto or Apple Health (to record Apple Watch activities);
Use GoJoe’s in-app GPS tracker; or
Manual input – with controls to prevent cheating.

◆ FIND YOUR COMMUNITY

We know that people are social animals – as they say in Game of Thrones “the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives”. It’s all about the community at GoJoe, whether that’s your team-mates in a challenge, training partner mates at home or dance partner colleagues at work. We’ve built GoJoe around such communities including:-

Team and challenge chat groups - engage with friend or foe in a one-off event;
Organisation groups – to help workplaces bring staff together all-year round; and
Shared interest groups – open to all but connected by things in common.

◆ PERFECT FOR WORKPLACES

Put health and fitness in the hands of the staff - and watch as engagement goes supersonic. At last, a wellbeing app that everyone wants and loves. GoJoe allows you to build a health and fitness community within your workplace at GoJoe.

Trusted by the world’s best companies to help put wellness on autopilot, delivering real and measurable results.

Great motivator

I have just used this for a week long challenge including competition between various teams from within my wider work organisation. Great to keep track of individual and team progress and see where you are in rankings. Motivated me to up my exercise level during a busy week with some awful weather when I may normally have been tempted to do less than usual. I like the way you get the points weighted so walkers and swimmers aren’t left behind by cyclists who can rack up the KM so much quicker. It was easy to enter details taken from phone apps I already use for time and distance recording already so you don’t need a wearable tracker, though apparently you can sync these too. Much better than just counting steps as it needs to be purposeful activity. Highly recommend.

Could be made simpler to use

Currently using the app for a corporate exercise challenge with some 120 teams of 7. The challenge is designed to encourage exercise by those who don’t normally do so, so it is important that the app is easy to access and use for those who aren’t at the top of the leaderboard
I find it surprisingly difficult to find information that I’m looking for. Adding a team member after the challenge had started required intervention from app support to do it.
Finding what teams are around you requires scrolling through the leaderboard, which loads slowly 10 at a time. It seems that the only way to access information on how individual team members are doing is to access the team through the leaderboard - why is it not possible to search for the team and access its info that way? It would be good to be able to search for a team or individual and then view the section of the leader board they are in and their stats without having to go through the leaderboard

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review. A team member can join a team after a premium challenge has started by using the challenge code, locating the team and pressing 'join team'. The team and solo leaderboards can also be searched - there's a button to the right hand side of the word 'leaderboard' which brings up filter and search options. That said, we think everything can be improved in life and have an idea how we can make the button stand out more and so you can see those hard earned kms - we'd love an opportunity to run that by you and to provide further guidance. Would you be able to email phil@gojoe.com so that we can connect?

The perfect app for employee engagement

Initially, I had doubts about whether this would resonate at work. However, it quickly became apparent that this was exactly what our company needed. I have never witnessed our global organisation, consisting of numerous separate offices, come together so enthusiastically in an effort to accumulate as many points as possible. This application has succeeded in getting the business energised, and communicating more than ever, while getting fitter! Plus you get the sense that the founders of GoJoe genuinely want to have as much impact as possible so are constantly listening to users and making the necessary improvements.
