Kevin knew that it was time to make a change. He wasn’t living as active a life as he wanted, and was beginning to notice the negative effects. Kevin was determined to live a healthier, more active lifestyle, so when his insurance broker told him about Manulife Vitality, Kevin jumped at the opportunity.
“I felt it was important to get myself back into shape – I was feeling quite sluggish at work, sluggish at home,” Kevin says. “That's when I decided to make the change. I was speaking to my broker. He presented me with this option that rewards you for doing exercise. How can you go wrong?”
Kevin describes himself as being much more energized and “less lazy” since enrolling in Manulife’s Vitality program. Not only is he feeling better, Kevin’s new active lifestyle is also great news for Harley, his Bernese Mountain Dog, who loves to accompany him on his trail runs.
“There were a lot of benefits involved with Vitality,” he says. “I get my insurance, a tracking device and I get to see my progression. You can set weight goals and you can set eating different food goals... Every week there's a minimum point you need to achieve. If you achieve the minimum points, you get a “spin to win”.
Manulife Vitality rewards members for the little things they do to stay healthy. And, it’s simple. Members like Kevin set up their profile, set their goals and then they get started. Everyday activities like walking the dog, going to the gym and completing online nutrition courses earns them points. The more engaged someone is and the healthier their choices, the more points they can earn towards rewards.
After a few years of being a Vitality member, Kevin reached Platinum status, giving him even greater potential for earning rewards and making savings. “To me, it's an accomplishment [reaching Platinum], and that's what the program has done for me over the last few years.”
