You can earn up to 150 Vitality points for getting active and taking over 10 000 steps a day with a Fitbug step counter. And if you do more than 12 500 steps a day you will earn a bonus 50 points.

Fitbug is the ideal companion for people who don't have the time, energy or motivation to exercise. And it works! Fitbug has helped people from all walks of life achieve goals which they had previously only dreamed of.

Fitbug encourages gradual lifestyle changes rather than fad eating plans or gruelling exercise regimes… all through making realistic lifestyle changes that can be combined into your daily schedule. As a member, you’ll receive a smart little gadget - affectionately called the 'Bug' - which you keep with you during the day. The Bug accurately calculates every step, calories burned, distance covered and more. You earn Vitality points for the steps you take too.

All members 18 years and older on an active Vitality membership can use the Fitbug benefit (A member can only qualify for this benefit when they reach their 18th birthday).
